  1. Found a guy to take one of these, builds amplifiers as a hobby and lit up at the idea of the transformer inside, unfortunately I don’t think we’ll be hearing a rebuild but at least it’s getting some love. Still have more if anyone wants.
  2. Well that’s thrown me, 1310 and 1313, never clocked that before. At least they’re not 100’s apart I suppose.
  3. Finally forced to give up my much loved Arcs, the speaker count is ridiculous so apparently I “need to clear some of this stuff, what’s it doing, they’re not even connected!” Bought around 7 years ago on Ebay from a guy in Scotland, I believe he was the original owner. They have been my main speakers ever since, had the odd try of something else here and there but always came back to these until now. Well looked after and never pushed, I always kept the grills in place too so as a consequence there is a shade difference in the wood underneath. Other than that they are perfect aside from the little chip on the top / back, not visible from the seating position. They sound great with my Exposure 14 / Dual 4 reg, I haven’t tried them with anything else so can’t offer any advice on that front. Struggling to price them, I paid circa £1400 back then so will say £1000 but open to offers. I have the boxes they were delivered to me in, not sure if they’re original or not but they clearly reached me in good shape so I can ship, not preferred but I can. If you collect you can have the granite plinths they are sitting on, if not they’re not included! Location is Sandhurst / Guildford.
  4. We use a 32A circuit, the amps are left on continuously but are not in use very often. They are not pushed to clipping in normal operation either - this post is more about do you want them for parts before they’re sent for WEE.
  5. Hi all, Been advised to put this here, it’s also in DIY. These amps have been modified by the manufacturer for use in our MRI system. I don’t know exactly what that process involves but the front pots are definitely disabled for one thing. This amp has probably been put on the scrap heap because it’s producing unstable images, what that equates to in sonic terms I have no idea. I’ve never tried putting an audio signal through one of these, one day I will, the spec is insane, Google it. I mentioned that we use these to someone on here years ago and he was astounded, whether that’s a justified reaction or not I don’t know. Anyway, it’s yours if you want it, we were paying circa 10k each so I should think there are some nice components in there. Collection only from Guildford, it’s around 40KG. Whoever takes it, please keep me up to date with its’ fate, whatever that may be, I would love to know what’s required to take it back to audio use as we have a lot of these...

  7. I do actually have 2 MD players, the one that I would let go is a Sony Net MD, I can’t remember the model number or where it currently is but hand on heart I can say it’s probably been used for 3 hours, bought circa 2002, 99% sure it has LP. If you’re interested I will make a proper effort to find it. I think you wanted a demo disc too, they are probably in the same place!
  8. I’m sure I saw a wanted post for a MD player on here not so long ago.
  9. Hi guys, yes still have them and I can post. PM me details etc and we’ll work it out, thank you.
  10. Feel free to make an offer, like I said, really wasn’t sure where to price them or are they just too budget for the Wam?
  11. I do, to a point, but then for me the law of diminishing returns / diminishing ears kicks in waaay before that. Especially where digital conveyance is concerned. I bought the Audioquest as much for its physical build quality as anything else.
  12. Really enjoying the Mary Gauthier, thanks, on my shopping list!
  13. Just reading up, there is a 2016 deluxe release available, double cd with different versions. I’m going to go for that as what’s interesting is I have this on vinyl, cd and had it on tape, each format had subtly different versions of some of the songs. From what I remember, I liked the cassette best in terms of content, wondering if this new release encompasses that.
