  1. I've got a legendary Nelson Pass Threshold S/200 power amp for sale. Here is the link:-
  2. Glass Animals, Lorde, The Frightners and Fela
  3. I have owned and used this wonderful Nelson Pass creation for over 30 years. It is one of the latter S/200 models that have the British Cotswold Electronics transformer fitted so it was easy to connect to the 240volt windings and avoid having to use a step-up transformer I managed to contact Mr Pass a few years ago and asked what he would recommend in the way of servicing the amp and he said to just change the capacitors. All the smaller ones were replaced. I then contacted Jon Soderberg of vintageamprepair.net who specialises in updating old Threshold amps. He supplied me with a pair of 30,000 mf input capacitors (Double the standard size) and a set of 4 Cardas CCGRS speaker binding posts that I had fitted. Go forward 5 years and the amp is still wonderfully transparent, airy and powerful. The only reason that I am changing now is because I am going to use a balanced system and will use a much small amplifier as a replacement. It is heavy and needs a strong platform to stand on – as can be seen from the photos it is designed for rack mount. Specifications: Power output: 100 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 7Hz to 100kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.1% Gain: 26.6 dB Signal to noise ratio: 100dB Semiconductors: 8 x transistors per channel (output) £800 plus postage

  5. Audio Note AN-Vx 1.5 metre RCA cable pair This is a very early cable - I bought it from Diva Audio in Clapham in 1983. It has been unused for over 10 yeasrs and as I am now using mostly balanced cables it is no longer needed. According to Peter Quortrop the early AN-Vx cables were maked with the legend QSSC as can be seen in one of the pictures. It has the same 20 strands of Litz cable as later cables. £250 delivered with RMSD
  6. I am withdrawing this item and it is no longer available. Having spoken to someone at Keith Monks they explained the dangers attached to Mercury (I failed GCE Chemistry!) and I am now seeking a way to dispose of the bottle of mercury safely. Apparently the arm depended on the mercury to conduct the signal so the rest of the arm is useless except for spare parts
  7. The price is £200 for collection only from SW16 South London
  8. Hi,

    I’m interested in the Keith Monks Tonearm.

    What price are you asking?



  9. As many on here will know Leonard Gregory aka The Cartridge Man dies recently. I am helping his widow Jean clear up his working materials and in amongst many boxes we found this curiosity. It appears to be brand new and unused - the mercury bottle is unopened so I don't think it has ever been fitted. Is this of interest to anyone here?
  10. Hi Chris, I've got a Humax HDR-1000S - 500GB recorder that's never been used. I won it as a prize but I have Sky and a Roku box so never needed it. It's yours for £30 including postage.
  11. I have a pair of Paul's ultimate Furutech alpha/Cardas XLR IC's in my system and the increase in focus is amazing - highly recommended.
