  1. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/282056918234?clk_rvr_id=1042021347827&rmvSB=true If I didn't already have one I'd snap it up in a heartbeat. Superb pre for only £360. http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/musical_fidelity_ac3cr_preamp.htm Best wishes Ian
  2. Cheers Deba. Rep added. Guys, Deba has been superb with this transaction, regular comms and updates. Deal with confidence. Best wishes Ian
  3. Quick update: I've just bought banjoman's Musical Surroundings Nova ii phono from the classifieds. Almost missed it as well as I didn't see it Will get it next week. Best wishes Ian
  4. Hi Deba, you need to clear some space please. p.s.
  5. I'll have this please Deba. I've been looking at buying one of these or similar battery powered phono's for a while. This would be ideal. Please PM how you want paying and I'll sort it out. Might not be until Saturday though as I'm on nights at the moment if that's okay ( I have to go to my bank and get a new password set). Best wishes Ian. Ian.
  6. Harlan Coben-Myron Bolitar series + his stand alone novels. Superb reads. Daniel Silva-Gabriel Allon, art restorer and spy. Jo Nesbo-Harry Hole James Patterson-Alex Cross. Lawrence Block-Matt Scudder Peter James-DS Roy Grace. Robert B Parker-Spenser. Robert Crais-Elvis Cole. They should keep you busy for a while. Best wishes Ian.
  7. I've just had a look at this and found it's also has dual-mono circuitry. Another one to add to my shortlist of battery operated phonos Cheers guys Ian.
  8. Hi Brian, could I provisionally snaffle these please. I need to speak to my bosses first and try and use the van at the weekend. TIA Ian.
  9. Thanks James. What is the Nova Phonomena like, and roughly what price? Funnily enough, when I did more research into the Clearaudio I found a couple of posts on a different forum from a couple of years ago mentioning the Novo. I'll have to look into that one. Many thanks Ian. Just had a quick look and the Novo ii looks like a very attractive option. Found one for just over £1k so financially feasible.
  10. Cheers Bob. I've looked into it a little further and the impedance is set at 510 Ohms which seems a strange figure and doesn't appear adjustable. Might give this one a miss. Ian.
  11. Has anyone had any experience with the Clearaudio Balance Plus phono stage? There is one for sale in the dealer classifieds that I have my beady eyes on. Clearaudio Balance Plus Would anything else at £900-£1000 better it? Help/advice and comments from dealers will be welcomed as well. I have previously owned an EAR 834P, an Acqvox and an Icon Audio PS3. Thanks in advance Ian.
