  1. The Soekris they measured (apparently) underperformed with Soren sending replacement graphs in. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk

  6. Hi all, Selling on behalf of a friend. This preamp has 3 inputs and 2 outputs, and is Oak sleeved, which really helps the visual quality of this unit. It was bought for around $1200 plus shipping and VAT, as it was custom built for a set of Bastani speakers which required a pair of outputs. Luckily, that means for those of you out there that run a sub, you can do that directly from the preamp. The operation of this unit is flawless, and works exactly how it should. Physically, this thing looks brand new, and I believe it's only a few months old. My friend is selling it as he no longer has the Bastani speakers and thus has no need for this. He is using another "The Truth" preamp he already owned. "So good I bought two" he said. Happy to post this anywhere in the UK. £800 ono. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  7. I heard a GG1 and in the mail n a t was very impressive. Very big soundstage, sounded very natural and unforced. I remember thinking there was little, to no barrier between me and the music, so it must have been fairly transparent. I'm quite sensitive to their being a veil. Overall I came away with very fond memories of the GG and if one landed on my doorstep, I'd happily plug it in. The Amber was also very pleasing, but there was "start quality" about the sound with the GG. I'd not heard all that many DACs at the time, so maybe my impression would be different now. Not sure. Give it a go. It's only money. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  8. Yes, done. Just making sure you were tagged. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  9. Hi all, For sale is a brand new and absolutely unused mains cable, sporting a Gold Plated Copper Viborg (came unbranded) UK 13a plug and a Copper SonarQuest IEC plug. 1m in length using Belden 19364 cable. Drain connected at 13a plug end (as usual) I tested this with a multimeter and all is well. This has never been plugged into the mains and the unmarked plugs are evidence of this. £60.00 ono including delivery Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk

  12. Hi all, In my excitement to buy some bits for the Bigbottle Ultime upon its conception, I snapped up some of these world class valves. Unfortunately, I can't use them in the BBu due to a design change well after their purchase. I didn't realise and thus sat on unsuitable valves for months. Oversight on my part. I bought them over 6 months ago for just over £200, so I don't have any recourse to send them back. I also (like a dick) binned the boxes the other day when I tested them out the new Teflon valve bases [emoji24] These are genuine, legitimate valves from a reputable company in the UK, completely unused. If someone buys all four, I'll do them for £100 including postage. Or a pair for £65.00. A real bargain to be had here. Stock photo until I take some of mine. Some info: Reflector Corp, Saratov: The Reflector Corp based in Saratov in Russia made some of the best Russian military types. Reflector has built large thyratrons as well as signal valves with most of its production going to the Russian government. All items are original Military sourced items and therefore offer superb build and sound quality. The Reflector 6H23N-EB is a Russian super premium 6922 E88CC that was made for the Russian military. The valve was designed to be Immune to shock and vibration and these valves were internally ruggedized.This gives the valve the lowest microphoney of any 6922 type. 6H23-EB valve also had its filaments isolated so the filament will not degrade over long periods of use. The valve was also long life rated at 5,000 hours so to put it simply, No 6922 was made to this specification. This item has very low noise and is exceptionally low in microphonics, and out performs all NOS valves from Mullard, Philips, RCA, G.E in this respect. If you look on the internet you will see nothing but praise and super reviews. People claim these are better than the German CCa, 7308 and Mullard CV2493, I certainly agree with this This item is not the same as the current Sovtek, Electro Harmonix or the Gold lion current production items. This is the original military 6H23-EB with the OTK government inspection stamp on the glass.These valves were made with no compromise on materials or quality control.

  13. I wondered if someone would snap your hand off for these. The speakers are probably in a very competitive area of the used market, price wise, but I wouldn't swap my 500's for anything. Serious speakers with top class credentials. They work in smaller rooms too, so don't be put off by their size. A set of Townsend seismic bars have made mine absolutely sing in a 4x3.5m room with a trampoline for a floor. If someone is considering them but is unsure without having a listen, I am in the West Midlands and am happy to let you hear mine, if it helps. I sincerely hope they sell sharpish for you....although you may live to regret it. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  14. Happy to take care of this in Wolverhampton for you Jamie, if it can be dropped off here? I suspect I'll be in Northampton at some point so I could drop it there for you Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  15. Bought that for £9.99 a few months back at......Hmv Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  16. I'm using Townshend bars under my Q Acoustics on a wooden trampoline floor. Super effective and worth every penny. Nice that you found a cheaper solution Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  17. Just an appreciation post for sharing your comparison. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Oliver
  18. Ok, I can see that you aren't understanding what I'm saying. No problem. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  19. Yes, but you aren't improving the Recording....you are improving the performance of the equipment. Everything you do to a RAW image afterwards is an addition. Think of it as going from the edited Jpeg to the RAW file. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  20. I don't disagree. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  21. Dunno, but you get a whole DAC with it for £6k Same price as the MFA Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
  22. No, you will then be removing the limitations of your equipment. The transparency is improved/revealed by improving equipment and removing the things that are preventing transparency. The recording is the recording. It cannot be anything else. Sent from my KB2003 using Tapatalk
