  1. Rega RP8 turntable with RB808 arm and TTPSU power supply. Lid, manual, boxes, packaging, mains cable. Bought new in 2018 and light use since. Excellent condition. Will ship to UK. £1050.
  2. Exposure 2010S2 CD player, black, less than a year old and unmarked. Fully boxed with remote, manual , mains lead. £495.
  3. My parents' radiogram from around 1963 (pic from the net) - must have been by then as I remember hijacking a morning drinks party to play I Want To Hold Your Hand on it, much to my father's embarrassment He had a large quantity of 1950s EMI pressings..... Pics of my student system etc to follow.
  4. Rega RP8 turntable with RB808 arm and TTPSU power supply. Lid, manual, boxes, packaging, mains cable. Bought new in 2018 and light use since. Excellent condition. Happy to ship with extra packing (at buyer's risk). £1100.
  5. The ebay one looks good (they should spell it correctly), but I may look at a new C Major which includes Quintet Blue for about the same price. Regardless of the AudiophileMan's review (Others are good). This one has an included lid and no additional box.
  6. For those of us who want a change from skeletal t/ts these certainly look the part. They go down well in the US, but despite glossy ads in the UK mags don't seem to have much presence here & difficult to get to hear (even if shops were fully open). Some great reviews - some saying they're actually nothing like Pro-Ject - but one unfortunate downer from a prominent online reviewer (about whom I have some scepticism). Any love?
  7. Sounds better without it. A lot, to my ears.
  8. Top tip - take the stylus guard off the VM540ML (carefully).
  9. It was a good player 15 years ago but even the Exposure 2010S2 is better either as a player or a transport. Exposure 2010 S2 CD player - immaculate | eBay
  10. I remember having a phone conversation years ago after I'd called about some tube amps - he was very honest about the capabilities and limitations of the LS3/5a! Very generous with his time.
