  1. Thanks Paul. As described and as new including packing! Good job that I took the Beast for a spin so that the TV in the box fit in. Now up and running with 5.1 AV system. Yet to play with settings but that is for another day.
  2. Here they are. Whilst capable of being immensely powerful I prefer them running in Class A at 25W PP with the lowest feedback. Liquid midrange and surprising bass even on that setting. Auto biasing as I'm not going anywhere near the voltages of a 211! Quite large and Very Heavy hence them being placed on trolleys to allow them to be moved. SJS heard them and did not find them offensive which is a better opinion than of most amps that are not SE.
  3. One of the best of its day. If soldered plugs no oxidation so fine. If screw type easy to lop off 1cm at each end and re fix plugs.
  4. Velvet Vortex for me. Superb results. Can do 2/3 LP's at a time and leave them to air dry. With the right cleaning solution top 2/3 of the vinyl is already dry as you lift them out anyway. It can shift some muck off grungy records to make them playable. Old dirty but undamaged vinyl from 60/70's comes up fantastically well. Worth every penny.
  5. I so have the wants for this and the Revolver speakers of yours. What a fantastic destination system and including a phono stage. Just add a TT and for £2.5K ish you could be set for a long while. I just have too much kit .

    At the asking price and if you can give them room these are a bargain musical experience.
  7. Drool. Bought new Vertere Mystic cart at Chrimbo, in addition to the Io and the Hana, otherwise I'd have it. Mate had NWA rebuild his Red. Awesome cart.
  8. Amazing reputation. I'd be all over this if I didn't have an SJS Silver phono.
  9. Hi, I have one and also a SJS silver special phono at multiple x the price as well as two pre's with built in phonos. SWMBO prefers the Vertere !!!!!! As new. boxed etc. Not willing, or needing, to give it away so state your best price and I will either accept or politely decline your only offer. No hassle ,no fuss ,no bullshitting. Cheers Mike.
  10. It is used as an integrated on line sources fed via the Dax Discrete. Phono , still my main source from either TT, is via the Music Reference . In Serge's terms it is more than adequate. Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals Live from Mars is Live in my room
  11. I use my Music Reference valve pre, with its stunning inbuilt MM Phono stage, into the FLS10. Pure magic with effectively unlimited power into 90db speakers. It can go very low and VERY loud in party mode Over 110db measured in room at 2m+ is possible but only recommended when guests ( remember those days?) ask you to show them how loud it can go.
  12. Use 2 of the bays with the space above as one open room with high sloping cathedral ceiling. Have it acoustically modelled from the outset. Speakers at the external wall end for which you can beef up the structure. 2 bay garage with a non-habitable room above ? This was my garage conversion but gives the idea of sloping roof and this was with only 4.5m height and a section of flat ceiling to hide the steel and braces actually holding the roof up
  13. That is one immense amp for normal speakers. It cost me 3 times the amount at second hand prices to equal its capabilities as a 2 channel power amp. Deal with confidence with Dick.
  14. £1000 is a fantastic budget to start with. Choose the speakers that will meet his needs+stands. Allocate most of the rest of the budget on the TT/arm/cart. New MM can be had for £75ish. The balance will give an older integrated with on board phono but probably not remote. Easily do-able. I have put together lots of this type of starter system on a fraction of that budget. Uzzy will be along with an actual shopping list shortly
