  1. I might offer £650 shipped or collected... If anyone is interested.
  2. Price drop to £675 UK shipping via UPS is £14 and fully insured £52. International shipping might be possible, so it's best to get in touch. Surely, local collection is still available or I might deliver personally within the (relatively) close proximity.
  3. This is superb bundle by highly regarded Matrix Audio and rarely available for sale. It represents complete audio system, consisting of Matrix Mini-I Pro 2S DAC and dual Mini-I Amps configurable in either bridge or single mode, depending from user requirements. It's rather low profile audio system with exceptional sound quality and power at hand. The DAC itself was the best I had at the price (based on ESS Sabre ES9026PRO) with excellent Bluetooth aptX implementation and really reach feature set, including controllable pre-amp gain, PCM filters preset and DSD DoP on all available inputs as exclusive features set of Pro 2S model. I was also using headphone output with great results. Mini-I Amps are based on IcePower 125ASX2 modules and offer great value and performance for the price. Some much more expensive amps (namely Bel Canto) are using the very same modules. They are consistent, highly reliable amps with overall smooth tonal reproduction and balanced signature, paired with great dynamics and speaker control. It's typical example of rather good ClassD implementation. This was really lightly used in great condition with original bundle packing. For more information about each device/model, please follow: https://matrix-digi.com/en/products/315.html https://matrix-digi.com/en/products/316.html Thanks for reading! £990 + free UK shipping
  4. Back to Millennium now, as it seems that I misunderstood him. He will have the first refusal, so if anyone else is interested please let me know by this evening.
  5. Just a few notes. Sadly, I can't offer audition as this is at my storage space in Brentford. I've never had a chance to compare the version with the new modules, but they should be sonically equal as they are based on the same baseline technology.
  6. Reason for the sale is fairly simple. My listening space is compromised at the moment (as my daughter is moving in), so for the last few months (sadly) I'm doing a bit of the clear-out and downscale of the main audio system.
  7. Any takers at £1550 ? as I've just got an eBay offer. Would need to know by tomorrow afternoon, the latest.
  8. Bump. Forgot to mention that free UK shipping is bundled in the offer.
  9. Buyer mysteriously disappeared, so there you go. Offer still stands I've been asked some frequent questions and might be worthwhile to answer them in a public way. Compared to the standard designs readily available (ladder type with resistors upgrade), this is a completely redesigned passive-pre design, custom ordered and relay based with shunt + Vishay Z-Foil upgrade and with a single resistor on the path. This design is fully integrated with already superb Hypex NC500MP dual mono power amp modules. They are the latest revision from Hypex as I've sourced them separately and within the warranty period. Interesting to mention, I had (previous to this) ladder type version with Tekman REX and prefered this one on sale. It's very transparent but extremely clear pre. Speaking of the amp itself, speaker control is exemplary (you shouldn't have an issue to drive highly demanding/difficult loads) and neutrality combined with excellent dynamics and transparency is very difficult to achieve at this price level. Among other benefits, passive pre-amplification is contributing to the extremely low noise floor (and you have that pure black background emerging from the speakers). This was bought from new ... only tested a few times by me, hence I'm offering the 1-year warranty from the point on purchase. It's a very reluctant sale, but my listening space is compromised (my daughter is moving in) so I have to scale down my audio system and clear out the components. This is at my storage space at the moment. The remote is included. I have the silver version as I thought that it looks nicer :-) For the last two years or so. I was mostly involved in custom made amps as my new stance is that if such tech is packed inside the well-branded case with the badge price will be 2x-3x ... as more often then usual one is paying a premium just for the brand. In that respect, value is unbeatable. Hope this might help someone in decision making!
  10. Anyone could offer £1750? as I have an ongoing offer outside of WAM?
