    • I'm from the UK, I just used the terminology that I'd seen used for the HK990 - I too would have described it as an integrated amp. I'm a bit surprised by the pricing history of the HK990 though, as the completed ebay listings that show up are all over £600 (maybe call that £550 once you adjust for Brexit currency fluctuations), so I'd assumed that they'd never gotten quite that cheap. Good to know though.
    • and a few poor screen shots Ronnie
    • Welcome on board. Might you be from the US perhaps? These amps would be referred to a Integrated Amplifiers here. Receivers would be amps with built in tuners (i.e. radio receivers). These are good amplifiers that enjoyed a fair degree of time in the sun, so were popular for a while. Early iterations did have quite a few QC issues though. I seem to recall that these were being offered ex-dem, clearance, etc towards the end of their model life for £600-£700. Dependent on the age, condition, etc of yours, plus the currrent poor state of the market, yours would probably realise maybe £350-£380 on ebay. Maybe more. If you're selling on here, you need to offer at around 15-20% less than you might achieve on ebay, so as to tempt buyers (who all know that it'll cost you around 13% in fees on ebay) Emotiva used to have a UK dealer, but I think they disappeared some while ago. As they're direct sales only now, with the asscociated VAT, duty and carriage costs from the US (not to mention servicing/repair difficulty), they aren't very common. Having said that, quite a few would recognise that they are good performers. Value would be very difficult to judge. Perhaps around £170-200? I'm assuming that your kit is suitable for use in the UK (where it's 240V 50Hz). Q701s can be bought new for around £150. So, £70-90 perhaps for those? You'll probably be aware that this forum has recently undergone a major upgrade/change. The classifieds aren't currently as effective as they once were, but changes are underway. So, if you don't need to sell urgently, I'd wait until things are sorted out on here before listing. Having said that, if you offer at a very attractive price then the vultures here will soon swoop! You also need to take some time and make the effort. Provide provenance information. Be clear on the physical and functional condition. Do they have original boxes? Remotes? manual? Come from a smoke and pet free home (important to many)? Provide some good, clear pictures.
    • Wow, kudos to you all looks and sounds a fantastic time was had by all How a bake-off should be fun, informative, its a hobby!!   Looking at eddie-babys photos im now by no means enveyous..... Ok a bit  Well done 
    • Apologies for the last minute notice, I am going to have to pull out, I'm not feeling too well, I was really looking forward to meeting some fellow wammers, and the chance of purchasing some vinyl. If by some miracle I return to full health by morning I'll give you a call Tim. Apologies Craig.
