  1. Thanks for the kind words. The Pre is the mkII face lift model. It has the same amount of inputs and outputs as the one listed above, it comes boxed with the manual. The pre can be used with zero or 13.5db of gain with the signal still going through the tubes. The only reason it's for sale is I'm moving house and the boss would like a new kitchen ASAP. It compares very favourably to my Border Patrol Pre that I purchased from Jag. As I'm only allowed to keep 1 system this has to go, as a matching set It does look rather special.
  2. Abbass Audio SPDIF to usb £475 still available Graaf Pre and Power £4500 still available I will accept offers (within reason) I'm moving house soon and I'm being told that 1 hifi is enough So a couple of pairs of speakers coming up soon.
  3. That doesn't sound what I'm looking for. :-) I got the chance to listen to a pair of Devon's and the extra couple of inches makes all the difference in the lower frequencies. Bigger would be preferable. Ha, ha, ha, ha.
  4. I'm looking for a pair of 12" or 15" tannoy speakers. I recently delivered a turntable to it's new owner and got to spend an hour listening to some 12' HPD's powered by a pair of Leak TL12.1's run at 6 watts and was mesmerised by the sound so fancy trying a pair for myself. I owned a pair of Tannoy Eatons for 20 years and sold them stupidly 7 years ago. Looks like I'm going full circle. So must be 12's or bigger cash and collection in person no problem(main land UK). I also have a a pair of Intimate Audio DS-108 back loaded horn loudspeaker + subs and amps to trade/ part ex if anyone is interested?
  5. A little short notice and on fathers day but there is a record sale with some hifi I am to believe happening from 10am - 2pm at:- Warmington Village Hall East Northants My local record dealer who runs the post office in the village has 5 other dealers there. A good excuse to get out in the morning?? I have no financial interest in this what so ever. I hope it maybe of some interest. Prev
  6. Sorry written in haste earlier, a remote volume control is exactly that. I will add some photos ASAP probably tomorrow.

  8. Many thanks too all of you who have posted, I'll do some more research on the vintage radio forum. The one positive is the meter appears to work perfectly. Unfortunately I'm busy with work and moving house so doing anything myself would be along wait. I'll report back with any findings I make. Thanks again for your help.
  9. Please could someone recommend a place for me to get this checked over. I've used to test a couple of valves and it's not letting me test at 2.5 Ia without the reading going off the scale, the warmer it gets the worse the measurements become. I'm in East Northants if anyone knows of someone local that would be great. Ta Chris
  10. Hi I use to have a car detailing business in a previous life. Be careful gloss black will swirl(small scratches looking like cobwebs) badly with any abrasive compound including microfibre cloths. Good advice earlier is if your fingernail clicks as you go over the scratch its probably too deep. You could try the finest cotton cloth you can find, like something you would use on a camera lens e.t.c. It may polish out(moving side to side against the scratch and not with the line of the scratch) if it's in the clear coat. If It's not get a good paint spray shop to advise you better, I'm sure this is the kind of thing that they could do for beer tokens. Good Luck.

      Hello Chris,

      Sorry to say, looking and going through the orders this morn, only the Jimmy Smith Remains. I had to do this in strict order as it was only fair as I hope you can appreciate. You have the right issue but I don't know what you think or if there was anything else

      Best Regards

      Hello Chris,

      Now I did think that more than that remained so please do give me some time to check for you. I have an illness that's similar to dementia so it IS feasible but I cannot see right now.

      Best Regards
