    Looking for reviews for this interesting looking piece of kit, anyone heard it? or know anyone who has bought one, specifically the 640p?



    TIA

    The 540P gets a good review in this month's Hi Fi World

    "This £40 gem acquitted itself admirably in a high end review system showing few signs of its budget origins"

    "Its very musical sound was especially good in the low frequency regions making for a warm dynamic and vibrant acoustic"

    cheers for that, will have a look, have a slee era gold V atm, but trading it in, may give this a go as richers let you get money back if not satidfied, never bought anything from richers so this will be an eye opener.

    Don't expect a cup of tea;) Seriously though, my local Richer Sounds is quite good. I bought the Cambridge Audio Av stuff from them and I am very pleased with it and considering I only spent £600 (DVD,AMP+Speakers) they bunged in all the cables for free (About £90-£100).

    Bear bought one recently off Ebay (on my recommendation) and I tested it out for him in my systemwhen it arrived. I'd say for the price, it's probably the best one on the market - performance wasn't hugely inferior to my Gram Amp 2SE. Not quite aslively or detailed as the Sleeand a with a generallywarmer presentationbut good bottom endand certainly listenable. As I say, for the money, you can't go wrong.

    I kinda got the impression (doh) that J7's brass arm was dugs danglies. Enjoy mate. Sounds like a plan to me.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed with the cambridge AK, I have oneto playthose black plastic discs through a pair ofQuad II's. (when they come back from being fettled). I stuck it onto me system briefly this morning- (first listen) and it's not Bad at all. Does not really have a budget sound to it, (Denon DL110 on a P25). In fact it may make me re think what I am going to do about a valve pre-amp to use with the Quads.
    My system is a gaggle of essex girls held in check by a pair of Brighton Queens
