  1. This years Oaks make-up reminds me of a couple of years ago when the up and coming but proven stayer Enable (and Dettori) ran the legs off the proven Group 1 class O’Brien Guineas horse, and hot favourite, Rhodedendron. Hopefully lightning strikes twice as I backed Frankly Darling last year at 50/1. As for the Derby I fancied Mogul all winter and have a decent bet at 12/1, and while it was beaten at Ascot I expect a different horse to show up on Saturday. The market will tell the story - if they think Mogul is fully fit then he will go off much shorter than the current 8/1 could even be favourite. The Eclipse is the other big race this weekend, on Sunday, and looks a belter. At the prices I thought Deidre looked a decent bet at 20/1 - stiff track, 10f trip and hopefully fast ground should be perfect.
  2. If the Government ever need something to put people off gambling this thread should do nicely. Jack - just stick a pin in mate, you literally couldn’t do any worse.

  4. I've got one that came with a high end Hewlett Packard printer - any good to you. If not I'd buy this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Revelation-Audio-Labs-Reference-USB-2-0-single-digital-link-cable/114125670410?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225076%26meid%3D4efb6f08d8024f1e8b3e18fbb8bd7477%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D114125670410%26itm%3D114125670410%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Adee26d3b-9288-11ea-872a-1a5990b66da3|parentrq%3Afd4e86271710aadafb7b312affb4ad93|iid%3A1

  6. Where exactly in Bucks are you?
  7. The MA50’s were very highly rated in their day. I had a pair in the late 90’s, fed direct from a Wadia 21 player into some LV Avatars - absolutely superb.
  8. All three models were bargains at their rrp’s (this one was well over a grand by the time it was shipped and through customs). I’ve just boxed it up and it is so beautifully made with a very tactile nature and a surprising heft to it.
  9. Auralic Mini in black. Boxed in perfect condition. Will be reset and removed from my Auralic account. Fabulous streamer - this is the 4th one I have had. Upgrade to Aries forces sale. I bought this from a seller in Germany so the wallwart psu has a 2-pin plug. I can include the travel adapter I have been using. Asking £250 (firm) collected from Northamptonshire NN6 or UK delivery £10 Europe delivery £20
  10. Fabulous sounding and beautifully made integrated amplifier based on the 47Labs gainclone style. 55w per channel and will drive most speakers with a very clean neutral sound. I had particular enjoyment from both Proac 1SC and Tablette Anniverary and can imaging it being superb with Living Voice, Harbeth, Audio Note etc. I have owned this particualy amp twice and have also had the original 25i and the 25ir - there are loads of amazing reviews of these versions on the net. This is the most powerful version he made, before he sadly stopped making amps to concentrate on mains stuff (presuambly much higher margins!!). The pre and power sections have their own power supplies. The preamp and front display come on as soon as you switch the power on at the wall, but the power amp only comes on when you flick the green switch on the back by the IEC inlet. In superb condition with remote. Although there a few buttons on the remote it only controls volume up and down and input change only. The other buttons have no effect as per the designers 'less is more' philosophy. Happy to demo (I'm in Northamptonshire NN6) or can ship to anywhere in Europe. UK £12 / Europe £20.
  11. I bought one on Sunday so this thread is now dead.
  12. Ok will sort that Simon. Just deleted loads of stuff so should be loads of space in my inbox now.
