  1. Hi Taut, not sure if this is of any interest, from the Porsche '911 UK' forum http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=146049&sid=b6a3d676ce703970974124d3289c89dc Ward
  2. There is someone over on art of sound looking for an x5, I have given him a link to your advert. https://theartofsound.net/forum/showthread.php?73112-WTD-FiiO-X5II-DAP Ignore me, I hadn't seen the wanted add on here which specifies the search is specifically for a MKii Ward
  3. All three of the Average White Band plus the Nevile Brothers please Dean Will drop you a PM Cheers - Ward
  4. This player has Bluetooth built in so is brilliant for use in the car, I wouldn't part with mine, good luck with your sale.
  5. I know it is not exactly what you are asking, but I have owned ESL63s in the past and they sounded gorgeous driven by 55 watts of Lavardin power in case you come across an IT reference, I changed to Tube Technology Genesis signatures when I upgraded to ESL2905s which have 100 Watts of EL34 power and eventually to a pair of EAR 509 MKiis with similar power. Good luck in your search.
  6. Doesn't Ssangyong use Mercedes diesel engines, they certainly did when they first appeared on the market.
  7. First car was a knackered white Vauxhall Viva HB (not this one) when driving in the dark it was necessary to hold the flash lever on all the time to put enough light on the road to see anything, the timing chain broke just after having got me from near Glasgow to home in Dorset so got scrapped before returning to College. Current car is a Discovery Sport mainly for the drive to our holiday home in the Charente France but late last year I found this retirement present to myself a Porsche 997.2 Black Edition, I've only covered a tank and a half worth of local miles as yet for obvious reason
  8. Hi Robbie, can I take the Mark Grant mains cable please if you can PM payment details Thanks - Ward
  9. I will be very interested to hear your thoughts on the effect of installing this mains cable as a comparison between using for a source component or for your ATCs keep us posted once they arrive.
  10. Can you advise the length and how flexible this cable is please
  11. You should have kept the Transfiguration cartridge to accompany this John, shame.
  12. Will do then, it will also be an interesting comparison between the Graham Slee Elevator and your SUT allowing for the fact that the Slee has extensive switching for correct loading.
  13. Gents and Lady, reading Non Smoking Man's thread on phono stages in 2 channel, I wonder is it worth me also bringing along a standard MM only EAR 834P and Graham Slee Elevator EXP to give some idea of just how much can be gained in SQ compared to an already well respected starting point?
  14. I did a similar distance to that Kernow to collect my ATCs; the intention was to attend the Kegworth show then collect the speakers and drive back, but of course the Covid put pay to the show so drove up, stayed overnight at the hotel I couldn't cancel and drove home with a fantastic pair of speakers, maybe a similar pick-up could work for you if the show goes ahead and you are able to go.... just a thought.
  15. Thanks for the heads-up Peter, I've also ordered a number of back issues, but stopped short of any mobile fidelity pressings.
