  1. Firstly – this is an awesome CD Player and the only reason I’m selling it due to the fact that I just can’t accommodate a top loader. It needs to sit on the top tier of a rack but that’s where my turntable is and it’s too awkward trying to load it when it’s sitting on one of the shelves. Since I bought it I’ve literally played 4 Cd’s so it’s in the same top condition as when I received it. This was supposed to be the “end of the line” CD player for me but I need a CD player with a drawer! I bought it from Tommy (LMR) here on the ‘wam back in July and his description of it was: “in excellent condition, not much use and since been safely stored and boxed for over the last 6 years. ……everything is working fine before re boxing. …..associated cables, manual, remote, box, outer boxes present and included” “Could I also add, the equipment listed is in excellent condition and even though not made anymore, have been barley used and boxed for quite a while. Everything comes with the double boxes etc.” I also purchased the LNS1 PSU from hifinut which I’m including with the CD2. The pair come double boxed (I'll pack the LNS1 with the CD2). I paid £1190 including postage for the two and I’m looking for £1050 UK next day insured delivery included. Expensive way to play 4 cd’s!
  2. Benz Micro Ace S - low output moving coil cartridge. Around 3 years old - working fine but may need a retip in the not too distant future. I was using this with a second turntable but that's now sold. Boxed with some mounting screws. I don't have any way of photographing the tip so priced accordingly. Around £700 new, £150.00 including UK next day delivery.
  3. Unexpectedly available again after sale fell through. MFA SUT - Purchased January 2020 direct from MFA. I was using this in my office system but I've sold the office turntable so no longer require this. This gives a 10 fold gain for Low output Moving Coil cartridges to use with a Moving Magnet Phono input. I was having problems with earthing & electrical interference using the MC input on my amp and this provided the perfect solution. The SUT 632 is in super condition and in perfect working order. £385.00 (£660 new) including RMSD.
  4. Decided to keep this as a spare after all
  5. I've got two pairs of Townshend Fractal Cables that are no longer required. The cables are in very good condition and come with the metal film canister packaging. They are both 1 metre lengths and current UK pricing is around £1K each. Prices reduced - offers considered The first set is factory terminated and comes in a branded film canister - price £350 inc UK next day delivery The second set are from a 2 metre pair that were made into 2 metre pairs and reterminated by a local dealer. Film canister is unbranded. Price £325.00 inc UK next day delivery
  6. Used in the descriptive sense of “Spartan, no frills”
  7. No PM received so I’ve sent you one
