  1. Very keen to take these for my 5650. Will pm you.
  2. Brilliant packaging from Dom! Thanks again.
  3. Can I just say here that Mark is a great guy to deal with, friendly and helpful. This looks fab but I think 3 VFET amps would be 1 too many for me- someone is going to be very happy with this amp!
  4. Thanks Dom will pm you shortly.
  5. Also appreciate that you are moving and may not have time.
  6. Dom is there any way to post these say in a box? Interested in probably 30 CDs but will wait to hear if postage is possible.
  7. There's a good review on YouTube pitting this very beast against a modern Yamaha AS2100...and the conclusion is that sound-wise, there's virtually nothing in it! High praise indeed... Here... BUT- the CA2010 in the review had the 40 year old caps in it...not renewed like this one. So thi one may well sound better still.
  8. Flash, you may be fast as your name suggests, but someone has beaten you to it. Provisionally sold subject to payment. Will update in due course.
  9. Some reviews I forgot to post: https://audio-head.com/calyx-audio-the-integrated/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/kweong/8127217748 https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=pl&u=http://stereoikolorowo.blogspot.com/2012/11/wzmacniacz-zintegrowany-calyx-cti-calyx.html&prev=search
  10. I thought much the same- if the biggest have found no legal ramifications arising from sending things... It is positive that the Wigwam team care about their users and their health and safety. I do however feel that if they wanted to reprimand me, a pm would have been a nicer/more appropriate way to do it. Anyway, perhaps those same mods could tidy up this messy thread for a beautiful amp .
  11. I have not been aware of any lockdown in selling anything here- I've seen plenty of new things for sale recently. My apologies if I have done something wrong. On no account would I invite anyone to collect, or encourage any form of personal close contact at this time. It is strictly courier delivery only. If you want to remove the advert please do so. If you don't want people to accidentally flout your Lockdown rules as I appear to have done, then lock the classifieds altogether. Simple and effective and saves any error.
  12. Hi everyone, I'm putting my Calyx CTI up for sale. Calyx are a South Korean manufacturer probably most well known for their dacs. Their sleek, powerful integrated dual mono amp has flown under the radar in the UK. I have never seen one for sale in the UK- I had to get mine from Germany. It's a beautiful piece of design with a solid aluminium case in half rack size (but full depth). This amp is driven by 2 B&O IcePower modules offering 200w per channel into 4 ohms and 120 into 8. Has the control to deal with most speakers, even the awkward ones. The front screen shows clearly which input is being used on its display which you can see easily from across a large room. Three line ins and one USB dac in (working up to 24 bit/96Khz). Build quality is excellent- taking off the top panel you can see how thick the aluminium body is.... Very neat work inside too. I have really enjoyed this amp, so easy and flexible to use with a ton of power. The built-in dac is surprisingly decent too! I'm on a vintage Japanese kick at the moment so fancy trying something in that direction. I have the original box and manual, no remote with this one. Some more pictures below: Just for scale, you understand.... :p A few tiny marks which I will upload photos of shortly but really it's in great condition. Two of them can be seen in picture 5 (at the rear top edge of the unit). The other is on the top panel near the front. £695 delivered in the UK, by insured courier. PM or post on here, thanks.
  13. As you well know, the answer is never too many. GLWTS
