  1. Musical Fidelity KW DM25 DAC Excellent Condition in Original Box (Great Yarmouth) This DAC needs no introduction. It really is a magical piece of kit. The only reason for sale is that I also have an upgraded unit which I am keeping, and I do not need both units. Asking £895 The famous review for those who haven't read it: Thanks for looking.
  2. Anti-Cables Level 3 XLR Balanced Interconnects (Great Yarmouth) In good condition. Selling as surplus to requirements. Asking Price £140 Level 3 "Reference Series" Analog XLR Interconnects: A stereo pair of balanced Anti-Cable Interconnects which will enable line level analog connections between components. Highlights: Fully Balanced design Ohno Continuously Cast solid Silver signal conductors Sound Improvements over Level 2 Performance Series: More resolving of textural and tactile information Additional top end "sparkle", so recommended for systems that may sound a bit dark and/or need some life added (not recommended for systems that already lean on the bright side) Additional Features: No thick plastic jacketing, which adds dielectric effect distortion and smears the audio signal Double shielded option is available for use with turntables and includes a Ground Wire Sound less like a cable and more like real music than cables costing many times more (see Testimonials) Design Concept: Typical interconnect cables usually have a signal wire surrounded with a thick plastic dielectric material, which is then surrounded by the ground conductor to shield it from EMI/RFI noise, and then more plastic dielectric material. This typical approach has the usual drawbacks of accumulating a lot of dielectric effect distortion, and an accumulation of shunting capacitance. The Anti-Cable Analog XLR Interconnects use a different approach. Since air is a near perfect dielectric, no extra insulation dielectric material (beyond the thin red coating) is used, and the wires are suspended in free air. Eliminating dielectric effect distortion is what allows these interconnects to sound like music, (not a cable).

  5. Hi Nigel, Thank you for the kind comments. It's nice to speak to a fellow Townshend fan. I'm not bi-amped at the moment, but I have KEF reference 205s and so had them bi-wired. I agree, they are incredible cables, and I wouldn't buy anything else now. I used to think the more you spent, the better it ould sound, but that's just not true. These cables really are incredible for the money. I have given some thought to bi-amping in the past, but never quite understood how to make it work. I'm assuming you have a pre amp with 4 outputs? Otherwise, how do you make the connections, because surely a splitter would interrupt an otherwise decent signal? Don, thank you very much. I didn't notice there was a dedicated cables section
  6. Townshend Isolda DCT Speaker Cable 3m x4 with Banana Plugs Bi-Wiring in Original Reel Case (Great Yarmouth NR31) In good condition and in original packaging. These are the best speaker cables I've ever owned. Since using these I have replaced all my Chord cables for Townshend ones. Amazing sound. Only selling as I've upgraded to slightly newer ones. Asking £595From the Townshend site: Townshend Audio DCT (Deep Cryogenically Threaded) Isolda Speaker cables have an enviable reputation as being the best cables you can buy. They are a natural and satisfying component for the discerning listener, neither adding or taking away anything to or from the sound, while never becoming fatiguing or irritating. They are just right! We even recommend the use of our Isolda speaker cables in un-equal lengths as the sound is virtually the same, regardless of length. Townshend Isolda DCT Speaker Cable use very closely spaced insulated flat copper conductors in a polyester braid sheath. Unlike the majority of speaker cables this cable’s close spacing means it is virtually immune to RFI (radio frequency interference) and presents an impedance which closely matches that of the loudspeaker. The result is bass with a solidity and power that is truly seismic, accompanied with genuinely silent backgrounds and incredible 3D imaging. One astute audiophile remarked that utilising the Isolda speaker cable “ended his Alice-in-Wonderland experience with high-end cables” and he is now able to sit down, relax and listen to music.

    Hi Graham, No I haven't, but it's a good idea! Will Email them now Phil @ Lotus HiFi, yours are the right width, but (only just) the wrong springs. Are you able to get the correct springs for these? Thanks.

    Thank you Chris. I fully agree, after speaking with Andrew himself, and owning this lovely amp setup.
  9. I'm looking for a set of seismic bars or podiums at the right price. Must be the right size withe the right springs (my speakers are 28.5cm wide, and weigh 33kg each). Also, must be in good, as new, condition. Thanks.
  10. For sale are my Rothwell Reflection Mono Amps & Indus Pre-amplifier (Great Yarmouth NR31). Only selling due to an upgrade. This Rothwell set served me very well indeed. Handmade in England by Mr Andrew Rothwell and his team, back in 2002/2003. There were only about 50 sets made. The amps are transistor amps, delivering circa 60Watts into 8 ohms (although we all know that output power should never be taken as any guide whatsoever to musical performance). The pre-amp is a passive pre-amp, using a 24 way stepped attenuator. You'll be hard pushed to find another set of these. They are in great condition, the only cosmetic flaw being the letters 'CD' missing from one of the sets of decals around a selector knob. Hardly noticeable unless you're looking for it. Retail price for this setup in 2002/2003 would have been £2100. Asking a mere £1200ono for this great (rare) set.
