You may be right there, cause it's almost 2yrs since mine was taken to Arcam for repairs. Still don't get why no response when I corresponded with them late March this year.

It also begs the question if Arcam as a brand now taken over by Harman still provides a good after sales service.

I use a fairly old arcam amp which you would be utterly shocked if you heard it ...I just keep a spare one in case it packs up !!! Mind you it has got a 1500 quid dc blocker plugged into it Which makes a fair old difference

Hi, I’m the seller - It doesn’t have missing foot, just a rubber bit on the bottom. Some owners use felt pads which I can install if you want, others use something else (as I did - 3 feet under the amp’s base rather than original 4 feet that are just standard metal feet with some rubber pad under)

Hi pav, I apologise that I lazily made that tiny defect sound worse than it is. I was simply recalling its distinguishing feature.  It’s a great buy at your asking price.

AV Forums just published a review of the Wireless 2 version (he previously reviewed the passive).

The link to the Hifi News review from a few months back in the magazine itself is now available:-

The July 2021 Hifi + also has a glowing report.  That will presumably appear on their website in due course. Alan Sircom suggests the improvements over the original ‘are marked and noticeable’.

I agree with most of that - and I too have always found a pleasant, though slight, warmth to the sound....and also noticed the difference from the original, almost immediately. It confirms my view that there was output at 40 Hz, which gives them outstanding scale for their size.
