  1. Hi all, does someone fancy a project? This amp originated here so I figure it's only right that it should go back here. TLDR, it's bent and manky, but working great. Some Wammer can have it for free, but it'll need collecting from B11 or GL18 I bought this amp a good while back, but hadn't quite realised it was huge and massively heavy even by big valve amp standards, so I resold it back in 2016, but to cut a long story short, the guy I sold it to thought it was faulty and was going through a bit of a crisis, so I just got it re-collected by the courier rather than try and diagnose things remotely. I got it back home, but was in the middle of a massive building project at the time so put it to one side and completely forgot about it. I'm now having a proper clearout 4 years later! so I've finally opened the box to check it out and it's clear that at some point, probably the return courier journey to me, it's been dropped. It was pretty well packaged, but because the case is pretty thin and the transformers are so heavy it's kind of buckled and twisted. So here's how it looks today I've just opened it up, seen an obvious bad solder joint onto the large capacitors inside, which may well have been the cause of the dodgy noises the previous purchase heard, so I've just repaired that and powered it up and it's sat next to me now singing away beautifully. Really it wants to be taken apart, case straightened out or replaced, change some transformer casings and give others a wire brush and maybe coat of paint. Or keep it as-is and marvel at the beautiful sounds coming out of an amp that looks like Sloth from the Goonies? Your shout, but it's up for grabs for free to someone who'll appreciate it. It's a cheap fix for someone with plenty of time, patience and DIY skills. It can be collected from either my house at GL18 or office (but only during office hours) at B11 Here's the original sale thread from 2016 from before it got all bent up and stuck in a box for 4 years: cheers, James
  2. I made this for my Brooklyn Bridge, but I’ve made another in rosewood to match the rack. Made from American walnut with a set of Arcam feet I had lying around. Measures 22cm by 20cm on the top if I remember rightly. Happy to pass it on for the price of postage if anybody can make use of it rather than it going on my firewood pile
  3. In actually very good condition and perfectly working. Very good as a CD transport as well Collection only from NW1
  4. I’m having a clearout as i’m leaving the country soon Pair of Wooden stands 45x42x36.5 Pair of Metal stands and tops 45x42x40 with M8 thread for spikes The top is very rigid,about 1/2cm thick and about 5kg Collection only from NW1
  5. Hello i have acquired this speaker and was wondering the age and any ideas were it may have come from and what it would cost to restore I can’t seem to download a picture my files are to big it’s a round 24 inch speaker with tannoy across the front about 12 inch thick it looks 30s thanks bob
  6. Hi all. As above, a few little dink’s here and there, but very presentable. Smoked glass shelves, textured Matt finish, three legged, hence Prism, I guess. Collection only from Lewisham, safely
  7. Hi folks, I bought 8x M8 black chunky speaker spikes on Ebay. I googled the size then they arrived and I actually need M6. Not worth the faff on an Ebay return as by time I pay postage then only get couple of quid back anyway. Does anyone want them? Ping me a PM and I'll post them to you. Now just gotta wait for m6 to arrive!!
  8. Decided to put this here rather than in the Classifieds as i am asking for either an extended loan or free . I have a replacement power amplifier by XTZ that i have just bought second hand to work in my main system waiting for when I can collect my Croft OTL . The XTZ has both balanced and unablanced inputs and is currently in place using unbalanced with RCA cables . I have read quite a bit over the years about balanced connections but to date this is the first power amplifier I have ever had that has them . Now I can connect my DAC directly to the XTZ and use the MiniDSP DDRC 22D as the volume control so I would like to hear what this is like . I do not own a pair of XLR cables and while i know they can be very cheap i do not want to buy a pair then add to my growing clutter when they are no longer used. So If any one has any rattling round any quality will do and can either lend me them until the Croft is here or have no use for them and can just gift them to me. I promises that of course once they are not being used they would be returned or if they are gifted then they will be offered again in this thread once I do not need them I promise they will not be added to the mountain of cables I already have as I am trying to thin this out and not add to it . Any help offered is much appreciated.
  9. 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...
  10. Unbranded balanced interconnect, stereo pair, XLR – XLR, OFC low noise microphone cable (suitable for hifi / pro audio). 1.0 m length. Excellent condition. Just pay postage please (probably going to be RM small parcel due to thickness £2.95).
  11. Freebie: unbranded 75 ohm digital audio cable, RCA – RCA, 3.0 m length, excellent condition. Just pay postage please (hopefully RM large letter, £0.88).
  12. Been sorting through some things looking for wires and other items and have come across some things i forgot I had . This is one of those it is a Rega Bias cartridge with the nuts and bolts . This is used but very few hours on it . Do not have a microscope but looks to be in good order . PM me and I will pack and post out . Could I ask that whover takes this gives a donation to a decent charity of your choice .
  13. Hello All This is an advance notice to give anyone time to think and decide . I am being given a new HiFi Rack which means that the Sound Organisation Z560 rack I have will no longer be needed . Mine is in Black with Glass shelves and is five tiers . This is a very heavy rack and that is one of the reasons i will be replacing it . It is in good overall condition . This is free to anyone that wants it and while keeping to current rules and social distances this can be collected . I will put up pictures once I have taken all the equipment off the unit . It will then be cleaned and disenfected and not touched until it is to be collected. Item will be placed outside the house in the small front garden and left to be picked up . Will wave through the window but to ensure that there is no interaction will stay indoors . Please PM me if interested . This will not be available till Wednesday next week at the earliest . I am based in Liverpool .
  14. I’ve had these stored at my parent-in-laws for donkeys years now; a pair of Acoustic Aesprit 309s came in them sometime 2007, so they’re large boxes Based in Preston, they’re free to anyone that wants them and can collect Cheers
  15. Having a bit of a sort and a clear out of my hifi bits and bobs draw, these will only go in the bin if of no use to anyone? Please comment on the thread before PM if wanted. I will even cover postage costs! 😃 As with any other bits, please pay the good will forwards whenever possible.
  16. Apparently these are hard to get. I have had these for over 20 years, so I am pretty sure they are genuine. I used them in a Maplin 100 watt amp, but they all tested OK on my cheap Chinese component tester a couple of years ago. One has corroded on the top, but still tested OK. Postage at cost, £4 I think. GONE.
  17. I've had this lying around for ages - the remote has been ruined by a battery leak but the box works fine and can easily be controlled by a universal/learning remote https://www.whathifi.com/humax/foxsat-hd/review This is free to a good home - hopefully someone can get some use out of it!
  18. I seem to have a 74g counter weight that I have no use for. PM me and I’ll stick it in the post to you.
  19. A couple of old Hi-Fi magazines available if anyone is interested (just cover postage costs): Hi-Fi News and Record Review - November 1999 Hi-Fi Choice - August 2012
  20. Hi All, I have a couple of drive belts which are unused. They are from two different turntables I have previously owned. as spares. Not sure how you measure the belt but one is 255mm x 4mm when laid flat on a ruler, so the total circumference would be 510mm the other is 300mm x4mm when laid flat on a ruler, so the total circumference would be 600mm Could be Project,Rega,Clearaudio ?(I am now into direct drive) Send me message if interested in either one or both, and I will post out to you free (UK mainland only). Regards Alan
  21. Just to notify other members of Paul’s kindness. I asked for an Amazon firestick to keep the kids off my back and he came through for the cost of postage. Now installed and peace in the valley. That’s what keeps this place special! Thanks again mate!
  22. Right not sure if this is asking a bit much of the wam. I recently broke my kef iq3s. Im lost. Ive been told to shield for 12 weeks. Due to my asthma and I’m not sure i will survive without any music. Im not asking for free ones. Maybe just cheap ones thanks guys and girls. If this post is inappropriate please just let me know amd i will take it down.
  23. Having a bit of a sort and a clear out of my hifi bits and bobs draw, these will only go in the bin if of no use to anyone? This came as a spare with an Audio Note DAC zero and was never used. Please comment on the thread before PM if wanted. I will even cover postage costs! 😃 As with any other bits, please pay the good will forwards whenever possible
