  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
  8. Intel NUC7i7BNH, 8GB RAM, 64GB M.2SSD. This running the latest build of Roon OS so all that's needed to be up and running is a Roon Account. Selling as I've switched to the latest 10th generation NUC. It's running fine - get's a bit hot but that seems normal for this model. Boxed. I think this cost around £500 to build, £210 including UK next day delivery.

  10. Bought this in July from Slav (mac72) here on the Wam to use with my second turntable. Now I don't have a second turntable any longer I don't need the Benz cartridge. I used this cartridge for around 10 hours mounted in a SME V (also now sold) so it's in pretty much the same condition it was when I purchased it. £625 including UK postage (RMSD) - will post to EU (ask for cost). Here are the details from the original listing: "it seems my plan to install second tonearm to my TT is not going to happen , DV507 has a new home now so Benz Wood SL I bought from Expert Stylus is for sale . I bought this cartridge in ex-demo condition with approx. 28 hours of use , I have put another few but no more than 10 while my Cadenza Bronze went back to Denmark ." "Cartridge has 38 hours from New, possibly less , it wasn't re-built , I have an e-mail from ESCo to confirm this if anyone interested in this cartridge . I'm not very good at describing sound am afraid , bass is a bit less deeper than Cadenza Bronze hence it might be described as more detailed , possibly there is more to come as Benz requires 40 hours run in time ."
  11. Price Reduction to £950 each Listing both together but will split. Croft Micro 25R Pre-Amp with MM Phono stage Purchased a couple of months ago from Radlett Audio along with the 7R Power Amp. Great sounding combo but a bit too “hair-shirt” for me – gone back to an integrated with built in dac (and remote control!). 3 line inputs + MM phono input, tape out & Line out. Super, boxed condition and with a spare set of 5 Mullard valves (3x ECC82 & 2 x ECC83) that can be used to reduce output if required. Copy receipt supplied. UK next day delivery £25.00, collection can be arranged from East Kent. Please note – I’m not supplying a mains lead with the amp as I want to avoid any possible damage to the casework (the box just fits the amp – no room for a mains lead!). Price is £950.00 http://www.croftacoustics.co.uk/micro25_R.html Croft 7R Power Amplifier Purchased a couple of months ago from Radlett Audio along with the Micro 25R Pre-Amp. Comes with an extra pair of 12BH7 valves if you want to reduce input level. Super Condition, Boxed.

  12. Turntable now sold - Jelco 850S still available. Will post some new pictures later today. Price for Jelco: £750.
  13. Sunday bump - offers considered
  14. Selling one of my turntables - the 1200GR with Jelco 850S arm. I've been using this in my office and it's a really good combination - the Jelco is way better than the standard Technics arm. Both items are in excellent condition, obviously the 1200GR has been modified to take the Jelco arm. The armboard was supplied by Ammonite Audio and an Ammonite collar is fitted. I have boxes for the TT & Arm and the original Technics arm is included in the sale (if new Owner wants it). A Benz Micro S is currently fitted to the arm and that can be included in the sale if new Owner requires it. Also comes with a Oyaide BR-12 mat. Collection can be arranged from East Kent (or eastern part of M25) or can be couriered via DPD (price tbc - will be two boxes). Price £1500 or £1650 with cartridge.
  15. Pm sent - hifinutt - I’ll take you up on your offer if LRB255 accepts my offer
