  1. Travel can be an issue can't it....being up here in the hi-fi wilderness often puts great stuff out of reach, so I know how you feel. Maybe a Wam Taxi could be in the offing?
  2. Not too far from you Rob, decent price too: 3.2 in London
  3. @FourlegsThank you for sharing your experience- the one question is, if you can't use cheap generics from places like Amazon, where do you source them from? I has a quick look at RS but didn't see anything.
  4. Second that- great speakers. Kef really knew what they were doing back then (as now).
  5. Indeed Mirek, 6.7 ohms is right in the ballpark for a good working pair. Hopefully now you can get back to enjoying those remarkable 105s!
  6. Andrew, They are getting rarer and I would say £100 for two would be fair, you see them being sold for more. Just one opinion? Any more than £150 is taking the p**s imo.
  7. Mirek, Andrew/Bencat is a top bloke and he will be able to sort out one for you. I will still have a look to see where mine is, but if Andrew has one ready to go for you then- get those 105s going asap!
  8. I think you are looking for more like a value of 6.xΩ to 7.xΩ with these?
  9. Might be able to help. A bit busy just now but will pm you later.
  10. Hi All, As title suggests, looking for some sexy link cables you may not be using anymore. Shorter lengths preferable (10-20cm). Would like something that looks nice- especially keen on black/red combinations. Pictures welcome, thread or pm/dm. Thanks!
  11. True and it looks excellent too....if only we could all get some! I am also looking at a new music room being built, and thought I'd share as I'm sure others would be interested. I think we'd all rather not!
  12. I saw that yesterday and thought: "I'd love those", then thought- no pictures for such a photogenic speaker? Bit odd. Yes, ad is gone, well done!
  13. Do tell me more about those Dom- sounds interesting. Another material for consideration? Soundproof Insulation | 3mm Sound Insulation Membrane | Acoustiblok UK
  14. They are really good- I regret getting rid of mine. It was for a good cause though- they were bought by the original designer David Hall, ostensibly to further the development of the new ones that will hopefully be forthcoming soon.
  15. I keep reading similar remarks about the audio/usb audio quality of the new M1 Macs. Dac manufacturers watch out!
  16. Congratulations on acquiring an audio legend, and escaping too much ire from the other half! I (like everyone else) am looking forward to your first listening report.
  17. Interesting topic- I haven't yet heard any of the latest Class D designs, and would ultimately like to go in this direction if we really are at the stage of equalling/bettering the best of Class A/AB- which is what a lot of posts seem to be suggesting. Would probably keep an old classic on standby for the weekends- a bit like a classic car for the summer months.
  18. Brilliant news David and very happy to hear that new speakers are in development. Best of luck with it!
  19. You sir, have a particularly befitting username!
  20. I'm still rocking my mk1 KEF 105, my second pair- cost me £375 several years back. Easily worth double that now. KEF 104ab- £100 KEF Concerto- £70 B&W DM7- £145 All between 2017-18 Prices for everything vintage have firmed up a lot in the last couple of years....
  21. Sadly still no further forward with all of this, for reasons you can easily guess. Still intrigued to hear it!
  22. All great artists provoke a reaction in everyone!
