Looking for reviews for this interesting looking piece of kit, anyone heard it? or know anyone who has bought one, specifically the 640p?

TIA

The 540P gets a good review in this month's Hi Fi World

"This £40 gem acquitted itself admirably in a high end review system showing few signs of its budget origins"

"Its very musical sound was especially good in the low frequency regions making for a warm dynamic and vibrant acoustic"

cheers for that, will have a look, have a slee era gold V atm, but trading it in, may give this a go as richers let you get money back if not satidfied, never bought anything from richers so this will be an eye opener.

Don't expect a cup of tea;) Seriously though, my local Richer Sounds is quite good. I bought the Cambridge Audio Av stuff from them and I am very pleased with it and considering I only spent £600 (DVD,AMP+Speakers) they bunged in all the cables for free (About £90-£100).

Bear bought one recently off Ebay (on my recommendation) and I tested it out for him in my systemwhen it arrived. I'd say for the price, it's probably the best one on the market - performance wasn't hugely inferior to my Gram Amp 2SE. Not quite aslively or detailed as the Sleeand a with a generallywarmer presentationbut good bottom endand certainly listenable. As I say, for the money, you can't go wrong.
