Hi Guys,

Been away for a very long time, pursuing other expensive interests :rolleyes: .

Anyway, to cut a looooong story short, I'm moving house soon and am sadly going to have to sell my system. Everything is in naturally perfect order. Here is a more comprehensive list of the equipment. I can get you more detailed specs or pics by email upon request:

Amphion Xenon MkI floorstanders. Maple. Perfect condition. No boxes so pick up only (SE London). Virtually identical MkII RRP £2.5k? Bought from Central Audio for £1400. Asking £SOLD

Marantz SA-KI Pearl. Immaculate. Box/remote/ishiwata sacd etc. Bought from Jordan Acoustics new with extended 5 year warranty. Amazing player that miraculously manages to play the 50 odd SACDs in my collection without turning its nose up. Will be sad to see this rock solid player go. SACDs can be a nightmare to read. I should know. Owned about seven players over the years. RRP £2.5k, Asking £SOLD

Acoustic Signature Analogue One MkIII + SME IV. Bought from the Emporium. No box, so collection only from SE London. Comes with additional rega armboard and 5mm Funk Achromat. Also comes with the power supply and one motor + all accessories. Amazing rock solid plays that once calibrated, stays calibrated. Bass is incredible as you can imagine from a 44kg TT. SME S/N 432XX. Perfect with box & all accessories. Optional Pro-ject Ground-it isolation platform also for sale with eight sorbothane pucks & spikes. TT RRP £4.5k I think. SME RRP £1.6k(!). Asking £2k for the TT, £1100 for the SME and £100 for the platform.

Ortofon Rondo Bronze. Immaculate. <100 hours. Classic Ortofon - very neutral presentation playing only what's in the grooves with no romantic embellishments. RRP £550, asking SOLD

MF A308cr pre-amp. Box/manual/remote. Underrated pre amp from the days when they made gear in England with better quality control. Nice smooth treble. Rock solid bass. AMAZING MM/MC PHONO STAGE. Seriously. I had an £2k ARC PH5 phono stage and sold it because the MF delivered 95% of the performance. I think you'll be very impressed upon demonstration. Asking £SOLD

Usher Audio Reference 1.2 Power Amp. 32kg Class A beast. More domestically acceptable (haha) brother of the monstrous R1.5. Very hard to find now. Runs hot but not stupidly so. 65 Amperes of current, if you can handle it? :JPS: Asking £SOLD

Cheers,

DT

Have to go through some picture hosting site like Photobucket to upload photos. There is a stickie, by Tel, in 'Questions about this Forum' section. Failing that, go to www.hifiguy.co.uk as he is a dealer for A.S. and has piccies. Nice bit of kit, btw.

Ha! No, not yet. I'm using an old universal dvd player as a go-between for the moment, until I buy the SA-KI pearl back when finances allow.

Anyway, anyone who collects SACDs know that there are only a handful worth owning. Pretty mediocre catalogue really. Unless you like classical or jazz (yawn).
