  1. Must be black in excellent condition with the original remote control and preferably with the original box.

  3. Maybe the title of this thread should be: Who thinks audiophiles are finished? It's just a matter of time.
  4. A side note. Never really understand why people take hi-fi components and other expensive electronics into their garden to photograph.
  5. Sorry I've posted this twice by mistake. Here is a photo. I'm wondering if the scratches are too deep to be corrected with polishing.
  6. I want to remove the scratches from Monitor Audio GS60 speakers. I was wondering if it was safe to use a dual action polisher?

  8. There is another system that's in its boxes in the loft. The Tannoy speakers from my very first hi-fi and the components for my second system but I'm not allowed to have hi-fi in the master bedroom. So I've basically run out of rooms.
  9. Reviews to follow shortly..... Lounge Bedroom 1 Home office Bedroom 2 (Work in progress)
  10. I am looking for an aptX HD Bluetooth receiver. I'm interested in these three: There are lots of reviews of the Audioengine B1 and Advance Paris is the reference brand of the French manufacturer Advance Acoustic. The DAC chips are as follows: Audioengine B1: AKM AK4396 Advance Paris WTX1100: Cirrus Logic CS4344 xDuoo XQ-50 Pro: Sabre ES9018K2M The alternative is to connect to my Tag McLaren DAC20 but I think that it would be probably better to use the internal DAC. Prices are: Audioengine B1: £169 Advance Paris WTX1100: £199 xDuoo XQ-50 Pro: £68 The xDuoo supports LDAC which I don't think the other two do. There is also the massive price difference. I already own a xDuoo XD05 Plus portable DAC / headphone amp for my laptop which I really like. Which do you prefer?
  11. I've been thinking about buying an ultrasonic record cleaner for a long while. These three that have caught my eye: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ULTRASONIC-R ... 3839270940 http://audiorevita.pl/?page_id=14 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbCLdyQ8ynw It's made by a Polish company. The motor spindle unit isn't just something that clips on. It's built into the ultrasonic cleaner and doesn't require its own PSU. The main thing I like about it is that I can clean 6 records at a time. It can also heat the cleaning fluid. Audiorevita also do a model, ARC-04 that has variable frequency that is £345 delivered. I'm still not sure whether high frequency is more effective and worth paying almost £100 extra for. I think alot of you already know about the HumminGuru Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hu ... escription It seems neater and more compact. It also has a drying mode. But the big issue is that it only cleans one record at a time. It looks like its made out of plastic so I'm not sure about the build quality. I think I would do a rinse stage and vacuum dry with my Okki Nokki RCM so the drying function in the HumminGuru is kind of redundant. The Audiorevita is £250 and the HumminGuru is £325 (both including shipping). I will almost certainly have to pay import duty and VAT with the HumminGuru. I'm leaning towards the ARC-2 but I was wondering which you prefer or if there is a completely different alternative you think I should consider.
  12. Gutted. Got outbid by a sniper on a mint condition one on eBay. Hence, still looking.
  13. Must be: Black Original remote control Excellent condition Preferably with original box.
