  1. No problem. I agree it is odd and I am unable to figure it out either. I have used a Tacima, Argos and Project mains block and they all had the same effect in strangling the sound of some of the amplifiers I have tried with them.
  2. It wasn't just the bass which was reduced, I felt the overall sound became a little flatter and a little less dynamic as if something was holding it back when plugged into the mains block I have. I tried it with a couple of others I have lying around the house with the same effect. I have noticed this with a number of amplifiers - as mentioned the Sugden I have at the moment sounds better plugged into a wall socket but I have noticed most of the amplifiers I have owned sound better this way.
  3. When I When I had my E-480 it always preferred to be plugged straight into the wall and not my mains block. Same with the Sugden I have which replaced it.
  4. Thanks to Alan too for a very straightforward transaction. A pleasure doing business. Regards, Rob
  5. Alan, Have PM'd you. Thanks, Rob
  6. I got this as part of a package deal with some speakers I have just bought as a "starter" amp. I have managed to source a more expensive amp sooner than I thought and so this is up for sale. I bought it as a package deal with the speakers and so got it at a slightly discounted price. It is a fantastic amplifier that really punches above its weight - all the reviewers unanimously rave about it's qualities which I can attest to. It is in immaculate as new condition with all the packaging - I have had it for 4 days. I haven't even taken the remote out of it's packaging. Looking for £350 ono inc delivery in the UK or happy with pick up (Chorley, Lancs).
  7. Gorgeous looking amplifier. I used to have the Mk1 and it was fantastic.
  8. Can anyone tell me the cabinet depth of Proac's DB1 speakers (not including terminals) please? Thanks, Rob
  9. Due to hitting something of a financial bump in the road due to losing my job I sold the E-480 and I am now using a Leak Stereo 130 so not really fair to compare the two albeit the Leak has exceeded my expectations.
  10. When I had the E-480 I always added a smidgen of bass using the tone controls.
  11. Selling my Dynaudio Heritage Specials with their dedicated stands. They are in totally unmarked condition and come with the special top plates that allow the speakers to be attached to the stands. I have all the boxes/accessories and so they could in theory be shipped but I would prefer pick up to be on the safe side. Also shipping wouldn't be particularly cheap. Looking for £3,995. RRP is a little over £6,000 for the speakers, stands and top plates.
