thanks Andy,

It isn't the prettiest, but it is definitely the best passive I have owned.

If any exhibitors are interested and would like to try it in their system on Friday, let me know and I will bring it around.

Graham.

I have owned quite a few FAR lesser versions of Glasshouse. This is an absolute BARGAIN. Come on folks, “Wake up and smell the coffee”!!

Thanks for the kind comments Marko.  Into a Quad 405-2 or Net Audio 405-3 it is the best pre I have owned and to my ears bested a copper MFA Classic by a considerable margin.

However I no longer use the Quad power amps in my main system and I prefer the convenience of the Quad 34/405-2 combo  (which although NOT in same league sonically) sounds very pleasant for Radio 4 in my study system!

Oops, I meant to say the Quad 34 is NOT in same league.  It is now corrected.  How to shoot my sale in the foot...….. :doh:

Thanks for the comments Phil. Unfortunately no sale so its packed up again. It's not a very well publicised brand so I think I will need to advertise it wider.

all the best,

Graham

This is a giveaway price, the transformers alone cost more than this.

Tempted. Anyone know how would this compare to a standard Khozmo passive?

Would you be prepared to post this Graham (UK)?
