Hello happy HD800 owners!

 

IS anyone know Antique sould lab MG head Tube amp ? it seems it's a quite old OTL tube amp but maybe someone tried this amp with a HD800 ?

I found a used one as a decent price (140€) near my home here in France and I'm seriously considering to associate this amp and my HD800.
