  1. Looks very nice. If I were only using it with a 303 I might go for it, but it will need to match with an FM3 and an AM3 so I'd prefer the original fascia.
  2. Looking for a Quad 33 in good cosmetic condition, ideally relatively recently serviced.
  3. Hmm, sadly I'm down in East Surrey so probably too far for personal delivery.
  4. I have emailed him without response, so j guess he is still busy. If I don't hear back I'll try giving him a call.
  5. Would also consider an unmodified version in excellent condition
  6. I got mine from prdisplays on eBay. I think it was about £60 and made to my exact specifications.
  7. Bit of a longshot, but I'm looking for a Quad 33 modded by Amplabs with the new backplate and RCAs
  8. Thanks for the heads up. I think hear are the ones that @damian.duffy mentioned above.
  9. Thanks for the offer, but I will keep looking for a pair in a wood finish for a while
  10. I'm on the look out for a pair of these, ideally in the oak or cherry finish
  11. I can confirm there is a hiss when no music is playing, but i cant hear it from my listening position a couple of metres away, but it may be problematic for those who plan to use them nearfield or are more sensitive to hiss than i am. It certainly isnt an issue when music is playing and the auto shutoof when there is no signal menas that when not in use there is no hiss for more than a few minutes. Having emailed Mads Buchardt i am assured that the issue will be fixed, along with an issue with the HDMI arc which occasionally doesn't recognise the signal. I have quoted his email below which also gives some information about a forthcoming Buchardt hub/streamer... The ARC is bugged and the team is currently working on an update that would fix these issues. Should be coming very soon automatically. The hizz would be removed soon, we already have a fix for it, we should soon be updating all the mastertunings with this fix as well. In q1 2021 our advanced EQ should be ready, this is a pretty big deal so i can't wait for this to launch. We already started the design on our own Buchardt preamp/hub for the speakers, the Platin hub you have now is clearly not a Buchardt product, but it gets the job done and it offers crazy good value for money, but it still feels misplaced. It would be based on our I150 chassis and have many of the same things within the preamp section. We are planning on getting a BlueOS module as the streaming solution with it. When it's released properly q2 2021 we would be offering a full cashback on the current hub if you want to upgrade.
  12. Yes please. If you send me a pm with payment details I will sort out payment today. Phil
