  1. Hi,

    RE your post about looking for a phono stage.

    I have an Aqvox Phono 2 CL that I will sell for £450.

    Its a very high quality and very versatile MM/MC stage that retails for 1900 euros , loads of info. about it on the internet.

    Please get back to me if interested.

      I read a little about that. My TT is a Kuzma Stabi which has fixed RCA terminated cable, so the cables may be useful. However, my integrated amp only accepts RCA so not sure the xlr cables will have any benefit?

      If that's the case you will need to use the supplied RCA to XLR cables as I do.  Whether there is any benefit going fully balanced who knows ? Some say there is , some say there isn't.  !  The unit sounds fabulous to me using the connecting leads. 

      Have to mention that a guy on pink fish media was interested in the Aqvox 3 days ago, I suppose I ought to let him have first dibs on it so have just messaged him asking if he is still interested in it.

      That's fine.

      I'm tossing up, been offered a Musical Fidelity MX-VYNL and a WhestTwo so have a bit of thinking to do.....


  2. Thanks very much for the input Jag.
  3. Sorry to hear your sad news Steve. Time is the only healer when this happens.
  4. I have for sale this pair of Slate Audio SE speaker stands in as new mint condition. I bought them new about 6 months ago from the manufacturer at a cost of £500 specifically to use with my Harbeth P3ESR speakers. I thought they were a perfect match for the P3's though some prefer stands that are taller - these are 600mm high which was perfect in my room. Top plate is 150mm wide x 170mm deep. Bottom plate is 270mm wide x 300mm deep. The Harbs have gone and now so must the stands. They can be easily dismantled and I still have the original packing so could be posted although as they are heavy collection from post code area LE15 would be preferred. They do look very classy IMO and being a very dense and non resonant material slate does allow whatever speakers are used on them to give their very best. Selling for half what I paid for them - £250 If you want more pics. sent via email please let me know.
  5. Definitely pocket springs, extra firm for me . Like loads of others I am a bad back sufferer and I tried a memory foam mattress a few years ago thinking it would help. Fact was it made my back condition worse plus I found that because the foam tends to mould itself around your body I had a job getting out of the bloody thing in the morning - felt like I was laying in a hole ! My wife said she felt as though she was stuck to it ! My sister on the other hand swears by her foam mattress , I just swore AT mine and quickly got rid of it.
  6. For sale is this 1 metre pair of the highly regarded Tellurium Q Ultra Black XLR cables. They are in as new , mint condition and come fully boxed. These sell for £540 new. Asking £340 delivered.
  7. SOLD

    Both pairs now sold. Thanks Kamil and Nick.
  8. SOLD

    One set of these with original box now sold. The other unboxed pair still available.
  9. Just like Hi Fi equipment its all down to a matter of taste and opinion. The Yamaha FG820 is a seriously good instrument especially considering the price, Taylors are ok, the older Martins are good but the newer one's less so , living on past reputation a bit. Lowden make a fine instrument , Stonebridge are as good if not better than all the aforementioned but Brook come out on top for me. All in my opinion of course .
  10. Thanks very much Jamie. Stonebridge make some beautiful highly under rated guitars IMO. Unfortunately I am left handed so am very restricted when it comes to choosing / buying any type of guitar as they are not nearly as easily available as right handed models.
  11. OK, so not really Hi Fi related but certainly Music related, I cant help but show off my early Xmas present from me to me , the [ other and slightly younger ] love of my life , a Brook Torridge small bodied acoustic guitar. Got her this week , she's called 'Anne' and there's a good reason for that which I wont go into here. She's all solid wood with a European Spruce top and Bubinga back and sides. Hand made by a small , very talented team of Luthiers at Brook Guitars in Devon. She sounds amazing , looks fabulous and all I wish is that my current level of playing ability could do her justice. I will just have to keep practicing .
