    FS: Posselt Albatross Speakers

    Hi Manny, Did you manage to sell these? I still look at them longingly lol O
  3. Continuing the sale of experimental speaker cables, I have this pair of Chord Rumour 4 cable. 2 connections for the Amp end and 4 for the speaker end. Nicely terminated with good quality parts. I'm looking for £90 Delivered (UK) £80 Collected. No price drop on these. They are very keenly priced.
  4. After hearing the effect the Chord Epic had in my system, i decided to try a few items from the Chord range. Here we have a 5m pair in good, not quite perfect condition. A little nibble on the heatshrink is visible on one plug but other than that, they're good! Complete with matching jumper cables. Here's the Marketing blurb: Chord Odyssey 2 The Chord Odyssey is a very similar design to Chord Rumour but features larger conductors. This brings real improvements to the dynamics of sound and music, particularly in the bass. Cymbals are shimmeringly realistic, acoustic guitars and pianos have natural weight and realism. The Chord Odyssey speaker cable is almost identical to Rumour. It features 19 strands of silver plated oxygen free copper per conductor surrounded by Teflon insulation and twisted together; the major difference being the overall gauge of the conductors. Whereas Rumour uses 16 gauge conductors, Chord Odyssey has altogether more substantial 12 gauge conductors and will carry significantly higher currents. Chord Odyssey is available in a two (Odyssey 2) and four core (Odyssey 4) version. Like Rumour, The Chord Odyssey is extremely compatible and is used across a wide range of systems. Because of its compact construction, Odyssey is a great favourite with people installing high-end audio and home cinema systems. As a point of interest, for reasons of cost, people who need extremely long runs of speaker cable tend to fit cheaper cables because of the cost involved. Better quality cables can really come into their own when the lengths required are longer than average. The Chord Odyssey brings real improvements to the dynamics of the sound, particularly in the bass, both in terms of weight and attack. This is also true of the mid and treble as well. Cymbals are noticeably more realistic and have greater weight and authority. The same is true of acoustic guitars and also pianos. The lower resistance of the Chord Odyssey also makes it a particularly good choice for longer runs. Heavy gauge silver-plated oxygen free copper conductors Twisted pair configuration Teflon insulation Silicon outer jacket provides outstanding mechanical vibration damping Priced to sell: £165 Delivered £155 Collected Very close offers on these will be considered.

    SP10 advice

    For plinth recommendations, I'd go for Panzerholtz. Phonomac build my SP10 the plinth is a revelation. Incredibly dense, inert and I get no nasty vibrations through it. It's wall mounted but even so, it's a fantastic material. Tonearms...... I had the Alphasson HRS100 and really didn't rate it. It got mushy on the detail with tracks that pushed the envelope. I was never convinced by it and again, Phonomac loaned me a modified AT1010. The Alphasson was sold and I bought a Phonomac AT1010. I'm now on the MK6 version of the arm and I can honestly say it's the best arm I've come across. I have been told multiple times that there must be been a problem with the Alphasson if an AT arm beat it. It passed a full health check when I had a din connection fitted to remove the "dull as ditchwater" VDH captive cable. The AT in standard form was better than the Alphasson. That's my view on it anyway, and that of two other people I know, who have sold an Alphasson in favour of the AT1010. We must all of had a dodgy Alphasson 😉 oxide symbol

    It developed a much more defined mid band. Bass had very tight "kick" to it and cymbals really shimmer. It's a very good sound. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For Sale - [FS] Mission 774 wand

    Wired with silver tonearm wire. It's not perfect in looks as it was my first attempt at a rewire. It does work perfectly and was great to compare the benefit of silver v copper wire. It's now surplus to requirements as I have rewired my other wand so I don't need two silver wired wands. Bargain £80 inc P&P Also worth mentioning is on of the cartridge clips is out o shape slightly so I'll include a new set of silver clips with heat shrink. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
