  1. They're gorgeous! Local lad! I'm in Portchester, my workshop is in Segensworth/Whitely
  2. Incredible sounding speakers these, far bigger than their box count. Some of the most complete midrange/3D imaging I've ever owned.
  3. Apologies, not quite sure how I've missed the images out, it's in lovely condition. M1Dac (mk2, although notoriously there is no mention of this on any of the mk2 shells, just the appearance of the asynchronous USB port that the mk1 doesn't have) I hope that helps. Carl.
  4. I'm around pretty much all the time should anyone want to inspect/listen to any of this kit. Cheers, Carl.
  5. My apologies, I actually thought that price was per unit, I'm certainly not suggesting that's what they owe me. I'll amend that now. No phono stage in this pre, maybe an addition to the amp from Plinius or one of their own Koru Phono stages. Edit - Also, Joolz, I didn't get time to check them when I got home last night, I'll have a look this evening. Carl.
  6. Hi Joolz, I don't know how old the Plinius pair are, and I wouldn't like to say they've had any work done, certainly not by me. I will have a look this evening if there are any tell tails on the boxes for dates etc and let you know. Comparison wise, they have everything the Hautonga had but in a larger dose, more space, higher grip on whatever speaker you couple them with. I love the Plinius house sound and these pair are a definite step in the right direction, It's hard to explain really. What I find common with Plinius equipment is the way they just get hold of a speaker and make it sing to their tune, each speaker I use with them has responded fantastically. /fanboy I hope that helps, you're more than welcome to come and experience them, although my living room is dire at the moment, a bare-walls-wooden-floor nightmare. Bring rugs. Carl.
  7. Evening all. To start the shift out of most of my kit, I'm letting these four go. B&W 803 Diamond - SOLD Brand new boxes from B&W - These are 8/10 at the moment, the only reason I say that is because the previous owner obviously let their kids run wild with food/hand prints. They're currently in the detail bay having a full machine polish and possible PPF protection, either way, they'll be sealed and tip top. I'd much prefer collection, however, the boxes are brand new and more than capable to be shipped. PLINIUS M8/P10 COMBO £3500 Bought these to upgrade my Hautonga, which they did, by far. As with the bowers above they just aren't getting used and I can't really see them being used in the next 2 years, so they're off. Price is an absolute bargain compared to their new price, pretty sure one is still a current model. All have their respective boxes, billet remote, paperwork with matching S/N etc. Best amps I've had. Spotless condition. Again, I'd much prefer not to ship, but all original boxes etc are present so it isn't out of the question. Musical Fidelity M DAC mk2 £375 This is one of the newer version with asynchronous USB input. Brill DAC this, I've not had it long (6 months) and I spent £450, Take a look online for reviews etc but all the usual support, USB/COAX/SP-DIF etc. Balanced output also, this is how I used it. Peachtree Audio Nova 300 £1250 Big little integrated with DAC, looks killer and 300w to drive anything, very well regarded piece of kit this, especially at its price point. No box but can still ship, I do have the remote etc. I'm willing to do deals on multiples, I also have various cables I can chuck into deals, like Chord Co Epics, Balanced cables etc, I'll get round to listing more stuff individually if there are no multiples sold. Hope you've all had a great weekend, do yourself a favour and by my stuff so I can blow it on drugs, strippers and fast cars. Cheers, Carl - Portsmouth/Southampton. <3
  8. Did you figure out why 9/10 fuses had blown?
