  1. Sunday bump. I'm hoping these can be appreciated by someone on here rather then me having to mess around with the bay.
  2. Thanks to Alan for pointing out I had not added mk2 to the title of the post. Now amended.
  3. Did you end up getting your hands on some? I've just added mine to the classifieds that are in good nick.
  4. Location: Wigston, Leicester. Elegant floor-standing two-way reflex design with sloping front baffle, using a doped paper cone bass/midrange driver plus a fabric dome tweeter, both produced in Scandinavia to Ruark's requirements. Superb quality sound, great for all genres of music from Classical, to Pop, Jazz and Rock. Check on line reviews on these outstanding loudspeakers; they are all good. You cannot find anything comparable in the present loudspeakers for this price. The loudspeakers are in Rosewood and were purchased by me about 20 years ago. I am selling them - with some sadness - because I've upgraded my hi-fi set up. It’s time for somebody else to enjoy this stylish set of loudspeakers. The speakers are fantastic order. There are a couple of little marks on the veneer at the front base of each speaker where my rug has caught them over time but this can easily be masked with some coloured wax/ touch up wood product. I do not have the original boxes now and I need to note that the speakers are weighted with sand so weigh a good 25kgs each. The speakers also have their floor spikes attached. Happy to answer any questions you might have. I will be sad to see these go. Priced to sell at 220. Specifications Ruark Talisman II made in UK by RUARK ACOUSTICS LTD System Type: Bass reflex, 2 way Drive units: Bass/Midrange: 170 mm treated paper cone high loss pure rubber surround, precision cast chassis, high flux magnetic system. Tweeter: 26mm precoated textile dome, dual chamber construction ferrofluid cooled and damped.

  5. Looks like I've managed to pick this bronze up. Will leave the post until I've received just to make sure. Thanks all.
  6. Yep have taken a look will need to purchase a three point shim. Will need to sort out a 2mm shim for this if it's still for sale... debating whether to fit myself or have it fitted locally as I've never fitted a shim before. Ok will do. Thanks
  7. Thanks for that... have emailed an enquiry as that's just the job. Will need to sort out a 2mm shim for this if it's still for sale... debating whether to fit myself or have it fitted locally as I've never fitted a shim before.
  8. Thanks Iain. Hope you are keeping well. Yes I believe it is 3 point but will have to take a look... been out and about this morning buying some vinyl. I think the bronze would serve as a good upgrade for the elys 2. I've recently upgraded from the fono mini to the fono Mk2 too which sounds lovely. Let me know if any of your contacts have anything at a good price.
  9. Looking to upgrade my rega cart. On a tight budget. Bit concerned that I may have to raise my rega arm on my rp3 by 2mm for this having not done it before so suggestions advice also welcome. Would also consider other recommended options. Thanks in advance.
  10. Ian has dropped me confirmation that all is ok on receipt. Think his good lady is impressed with the walnut finish too. Please keep us updated on your experiences with this lovely turntable.
  11. TT shipped to sunny Scotland. Just awaiting feedback from Ian.
