  1. Sorry to hear that Frank. You’d had a good experience with him previously hadn’t you iirc?
  2. They’ve been on there for the best part of a year. Interesting that they should sell now, as you post this. Coincidence, or did someone bite?
  3. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114864555672
  4. Certainly a better looking speaker than the edifier models Martin
  5. @MarginWalker, thanks again for this. Had a really good read through the Buchardt forum now. I do like the way that the team there are really communicative, and very honest about issues. Development of fixes seems pretty rapid too. They come across well.
  6. The Xeo 20 in white might be my best option I think. Reading reviews I think the sound would suit me.
  7. Brilliant, thanks Phil. Reading through, it’s not all plain sailing is it? Quite a few users with problems, and from nowhere by the sound of it … months of good use and then trouble. Don’t like the sound of the mono issue, or the vocal veiling problems.
  8. I like the look of the Dynaudio XD20. I prefer a wood finish with my speakers for choice.
  9. I think so Martin. Just a bit too ordinary.
  10. Cheers Phil. Out of interest, have you had any issues yourself?
  11. I have thought about the AE1s actually, with a Swiss Army knife of a pre, like one of the better Pro-Ject boxes. Another consideration is power consumption, as we don’t have mains electricity at the new house. Oh, and they need to sound good at low volume. So two more boxes ticked for the A500. I can’t help but feel the online output re the Buchardts is a bit ‘curated’ though. A couple of killer YT reviews and, well, not much else. I’ve asked to join to FB owners group but my request has been pending for days. I’d like to join that before pressing the button really, and read some first hand accounts of ownership.
  12. I’m pretty keen to move to an active all in one system, as it would suit my lifestyle and listening space for a few years. Having said that I’m not finding it that easy to make a choice. The LSX seem a bit lightweight, and I don’t like the looks of the LS50w. The Buchardt seem the best fit, and the 45 day trial is great, but they are spendy. Hmmm.
  13. Scratch that. Apparently it’s shite. https://www.avforums.com/reviews/q-acoustics-q-active-200-speaker-system-review.18498
  14. These don’t seem to be going down that well reviews wise. I like the fact there’s a built in phono stage. Anyone actually heard a pair?
