  1. Omega CAM (Compact Alnico Monitors) Purchased these late last year via the UK dealer for £1800 and received them in December. They come with the original boxes and are completely unmarked. There are no stands for them as I was swapping them over to the AN stands I had. £1300 + postage to UK only
  2. Not sure how that is relevant, 300b with p3esr is not a good match.
  3. change your speakers not the amp, P3esr are great as headphones but you're missing all the greatness that 300b have to offer, valves need big high efficiency drivers.
  4. Because it's better, they use the N-K in the DAC 5, the K version measures better than the standard J ones, bit like the TDA1541a double crowns.
  5. Purchased as a 'cancelled order' direct from AN dealer July 2018. Replaced the DAC with an AD1865N-K and fitted some nice Amperex bugle boy ECC-88s. Sounds bloody lovely and Includes original box and packaging. ***SOLD*** inc insured postage to UK only (UPS)
  6. Flog the TKD and stick a Nobel AP25 in, they sound much better than TKD or AN stepped attenuators.
  7. This is an early M3 which has just come back from Audio Note to have the 6x5 rectifiers and fuse holders replaced plus a check over. I had fitted 2x NOS Tung Sol 5687 which sound really good and will be staying with it. I have the original box but as it is very heavy and Audio Note packaging is not the best will be collection only. £2,300 cash on collection only
  8. I purchased this new from Analogue Seduction in January this year. I have all the original packaging and cloth bags and gloves etc. Hate to say it is mint but I don't think anyone would know if this was sent out as a new item. £1300 inc postage to the UK only.
  9. I've got an Audio Note AN-S3Lag which is the older S3 step up with silver wound transformers. It was in a bit of a state when I got so I stripped it back to copper, gave it a polish and lacquer. The S3 generally sells for around for £1500 but I'll do it for £750, pm if interested.
  10. No mods or changes to either the TT or PSU. No idea on servicing though
  11. All the gibbon series are bamboo in either mink, cherry or mahogany. Mine are the cherry finish which I prefer as mink is almost black and mahogany is that funny American red stain they like.
  12. It's a rather fitting name for Southampton (I'm actually about half way between Southampton and Portsmouth)
  13. Howdy, have updated the profile or does it need to be in the ad as well?
  14. Line Magnetic LM-518i I purchased this from China and will include a 240v > 220v step-down I purchased for it if collected. Comes with Psvane HIFI 845s, Gold Lion KT77s, EI 12ax7 and a Gold Lion GZ34 (plus the original valves that shipped with it if you collect) Has a small dent on the back bottom corner. Has the ultimate warm valve sound with 22 Watts of power. £1400 cash on collection preferred as shipping is possible but will be very expensive as it weighs 40kg IMG_20181120_173943 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0191 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0189 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0188 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0190 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  15. Purchased last year from the first owner and is now around 3 years old. I've fitted some nice Mullards which cost me £500 and will be included: NOS MATCHED QUAD OF MULLARD BLACKBURN EL84 RX1 SQUARE GETTER 1958 2x NOS CV4004 MULLARD MITCHUM R1A3 BOX PLATE 1x NOS CV4003 MULLARD I have the original box but would prefer cash on collection so the buyer can see it working, if you want to arrange your own courier I'm happy for it to be picked up. £2500 IMG_0051 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0052 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0053 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  16. Purchased this a few years ago from the original owner. It is an early 90's one and has never been rebuilt or messed with. He told me he had put around 300 hours on it so I'll say it has 1000 hours to be on the safe side. £750 inc RM special delivery IMG_0047 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0046 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0045 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  17. Really want to sell this as a package as the plinth was cut with the mounting hole for this arm. Technics SP10 mk2 with power supply Acoustand plinth with 30mm mounting hole cut at 304.5 mm Groovemaster II tonearm with titanium armature and silver wiring. I'll throw in the arm cable I got and an FR headshell if someone buys as a package. SP10 mk2 - £1000 Plinth - £200 Arm - £1000 (I have the original box and tools etc with it) As a package I'll let it go for £1,900 cash on collection.

  18. Purchased last year from BD Audio, the cart was Jack's own and the SUT was new. The cart probably has around 200-300 hours on it now as I upgraded fairly quickly to the gold as I like the Io1 so much. Io1 - £1100 (inc RM special delivery but insurance is £500 max) ANS2L - £300 inc RMSD If you buy them both I'll do it for ***SOLD*** IMG_0042 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0043 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0044 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  19. Purchased these last year from the US and had them imported. House move forces sale otherwise given how rare they are and good they sound I'd love to keep them. I have the original boxes but would prefer cash on collection so the buyer can hear them working. If you want to arrange your own courier I'd be happy with this as long as they are collected before the end of September. £1800 IMG_0041 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0040 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0039 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
