  1. Most of their range don’t look their price (IMO) but always pull it out the bag at demos.
  2. So there's us using 4 pages to recommend 6K speakers and he decides on some 12K+ speakers!
  3. It’s gotta be the colour. If silver it would have gone. We’re a fickle lot.
  4. It’s the DCD S1. Sorry, yes…step down transformer ! (230v to 110v)
  5. I’ve got my eye on this piece of loveliness at the moment for 1400 big ones. Wasn’t in the market for a new player, but this is tempting me greatly just through pride of ownership. Needs a step up transformer though :(
  6. I'm probably in the minority camp here. I care massively about a system's looks. I want to look at it while I enjoy the music and feel proud of the equipment's aesthetics. If a component sounds amazing but looks awful I won't even entertain the idea of having it. Why? Because fortunately for us, more than ever, there are so many other options which not only look superb but also most likely sound as good as the fugly component. We're lucky. Examples of this for me are Hegel and ATC to name just two. Very popular sound wise, but I'd definitely be choosing other components over them no matter what.
  7. Yeah, must admit lovely looking speakers and superb sound. That would have been a hell of a second system I’m sure.
  8. Exactly the same situation as me. He was over-protective of his designs and that causes users like us problems.
  9. Dan didn’t support me when I needed circuit info to repair my LS36.5! Haha
  10. Bought blind because I like surprises - Audionet DNA 2.0 and power supply. Non mainstream amp but spectacular user reviews. Bought with a plan to power some Estelon XBs. Will be interesting to hear how it compares to my Jeff Rowland Concentra.
  11. Yeah they are terrible, especially for a dealer.
  12. Listing now removed! In other news Nintronics have a pair of Sasha DAWs up there. If they weren’t in black I’d seriously consider putting in a very silly offer. I could see them as being my end game speakers for at least 3 years.
  13. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/185004728956?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D39e89d7b15ee4ccf8f9718749396cbd6%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D185004728956%26itm%3D185004728956%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DWilson+Audio&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aca702632-01ad-11ec-92ef-6ef3c922102b|parentrq%3A636c4fb017b0ad330969e044ffff6a2a|iid%3A1 Absolutely beautiful Wilson Yvettes in Belfast. Auction began at a grand and very very simple description for such a high end speaker. Could be worth checking out further if in Ireland.
  14. Absolutely. I'll never be claiming they do anything to the sound and I'm not even going to attempt to test it. My OCD is ok as it is.
