Tidying up what had become a chatty thread. £995 (or £990 and a pint) to that man over there with too many speakers already. Most of you know the story; if not, you can do the search thing. I bought a second teak pair which sounded nowhere near as good and cost me substantial £ to upgrade to comarable to sound to these beauties. Not as imposing in the flesh as they can look in photos where the height is what attracts attention; in the wood, they are tall, slim and IMHO elegant. They also sound lovely; if I mention big soundstage you might think that is as much to do with upstream components but I'm going to mention it anyway. Dimensions including marble plinth: H 186cm (6'1") W 30cm (12") D 32.5cm (13"). Excluding plinth, the cabinets are only 20cm (8") wide and max depth at bottom is 22cm (9"). As @rabski reminded us some time ago: "Graham Tricker described them as "...probably the least compromised loudspeaker we have ever heard", which is quite something coming from the man behind Tron". EDIT: short (not "make a day of it" bake-off!) and socially distanced auditions may be possible in Leicestershire, check in-store for details.
I've been racking (pun intended) my brains all weekend about how to accommodate my changing hifi in Kendal... and have at last come up with a cunning plan. Yes, another one. So up for sale is my gorgeous seven tier hifi rack from Custom Designs. It's the previous version of the Milan 6 in which the shelves sit in grooves in the sides. The top shelf is a Milan 10, top-mounted in the current style, and selected so it could take the weight of a once-resident 35kg amp. I can't even fit all seven shelves in under my turntable shelf, which is why there's one on the floor. The third photo is to show the exquisite detail of the design. EQUIPMENT NOT INCLUDED! I simply love the look of this rack. Slight curve to the front of the glass, etc, all wonderfully thought through. Real solid oak not veneer, and it's sustainably sourced. External width 580mm; internal width 480mm, allowing standard 430mm width components to fit and breathe. All shelves except the top one can obviously be swapped around. The top shelf gives a 120mm (4") gap underneath so can comfortably acommodate most components. Summary of shelf gaps: 120mm x1 under top shelf 120mm x1 moveable 150mm x2 100mm x2 For reference, the two lowest Arcam units you can see are 85mm high and sit comfortably in the 100mm shelves. The top shelf has an RRP of £185, the others £170 so if you bought this new it would cost you £1205. There are two logistical challenges: I simply cannot consider posting this due to glass, costs, etc. Any handover arrangements must be consistent with current government regulations; social distancing and a polite bow then. The rack is in Kendal. I'm here until Tuesday PM and then heading home to Leicestershire; I will return in 2-3 weeks. Safe handover can be arranged in Kendal, near Melton Mowbray or points in between. Please PM me if interested. Open to sensible offers of course.
