  1. I went for ardens as I have a room big enough but.... Tannoy legacy are forever speakers (even 18 months in as self diagnosed terrible system changer😁)
  2. Not to suggest its bad esp if you have linn through house and want to keep in system but I kept my sneaky dsm for TV room but sold my klimax renew ds as bluesound node 2i with fidelity upgrade into chord qutest (which i use from sacd too) trumped it in every way..... Otherwise good luck in search... Free ads in glasgow has them popping up often
  3. When I sold my Tron emporium were also asking 1950 for same batch identical line pre.... For what it's worth this and my Robson power amps were slightly better than the luxman a-class integrated I replaced it with (on a quest for less boxes) Was also a step up again from the croft 25r I had in there before
  4. Having a clear out of G shock collection as I decided to keep only specific few and to buy a new Frogman analog. Gulfmaster Master of G one of the smaller MASTER OF G watches. It has solar power and also tide along with radio timekeeping so perfectly accurate unlike my Rolex watches and also G-shocks are built tough so never an issue with DIY. One neat feature although never used is if the analog arms ever go out of alignment there is an auto recalibration to get them perfect. Any questions please ask - I can't find the manual but available as PDF online ... if i find where I filed it will obviously add.

  5. Is there a limit to the size of SSD that the Node will accept.?
  6. So been on the bay sold then scammer said not as described and refused to return them - Paypal refunded him and I had to resort to having a pal in the same town pop around to retrieve them and paying for courier ... again. Dropped the price massively as just sat on shelf and i wont use eBay again. Would prefer collection where i can demo ... (under Covid precautions) - Reducing PRICE IN TOP AD 1250 - 950
  7. Off topic... But is the Neo worth the upgrade
  8. I had this was superb with rega RP8 into my Tron... But sold (sadly only 350 quid) as I box reduced and used inbuilt MC in my luxman..... Incredible versatile amount of adjustment to match prob every cart ever made.
  9. Have you demoed arcam cds50... Way under budget new... I put mine out into chord qutest and I'm impressed... Also can play dsf files off a USB stick.
  10. It is night and day like a light has been switched on and you can see the band clearly... Apheta 2 it is although I see they have a version 3 now. Mine is on the RP8 so I think this allows the cartridge to shine. The ania MC gets good press but I got the apheta 2 barely used for the same money.
  11. Updated info once I peaked inside... I had forgotten the upgrade the valves are now a philips set of EL84 quads with Philips input stage too... AND GENELEX GOLDEN LION 6x spare el84 for future use. Must admit that el84 drivers make less of difference tube rolling for me than the input stages. Well that was my experience with croft 25r.
