    Denon DL110 cartridge.

    Hi Mike, is this still available??
  3. Weekend bump. Now all boxed up and UK shipping is included.
  4. I’m listing these for a friend who isn’t a forum member but have seen and heard the speakers personally. He is selling the speakers as he has just purchased a pair of Spendor A7’s. For sale is a set of Dali Opticon 6 floor standing speakers in very good condition and working perfectly. These are the lovely walnut finish and have original boxes and packaging. One speaker grill has a crack but it is not visible and it obviously functions perfectly, as can be seen in the pictures. Asking price is £600 including UK shipping, personal delivery within 50 miles or they are available for demo’s and collection from Oldham (just outside of Manchester) The speakers are now all boxed up and ready for shipping. Any question fire away and I will answer as best I can.

    Mordaunt Short MS400 floor standers or stand mounts?

    We’ll they arrived safe and sound and look just as good in the flesh. The full wood cabinets make them feel really sturdy and well made. I lashed them up with some new Van Damme blue studio grade cables and they sound great. As MartinC said, on their plinths they appear to sit a little low, with the tweeter at roughly shoulder height to my seating position. However, they present a very good central image and wide sound stage. They have a sweet midrange which is crystal clear, the highs may be a tad forward or bright, but they have plenty of bottom end in my small room, you can feel the extended low notes in your belly! I may try an additional plinth to raise them slightly or maybe try tilting them back slightly. Not keen on the old screws for connecting bare speaker cable so I will likely look to install some quality binding posts to take bananas and check over the crossover at the same time. Personally, I think they are screaming out for some lovely tube amplification..... the wife disagrees! 😳
  6. Just picked up a lovely looking pair of these speakers on a whim, anyone familiar with them? Are they supposed to be floor standers or are they best raised off the floor on some sort of stand?

    WTD: 5" & 7" Reel to Reel Music / Tapes

    Hi Allan, Do you know what is recorded on them? Thanks.
  8. I originally post this in the "music for sale" section but thought it may get a better response here......... forum gods, if this is not allowed, please remove the post! I have just bought my first reel to reel deck and I am on the look out for any tapes and music that may be going for a song, just to get me started. If anyone has any old tapes / music / albums that they are wanting to part with, please PM me! Thanks.

    Anyone Compared PMC Twenty 21 / 22?

    Evening all! I am interested in hearing any experience members may have of these two PMC standmounts, particularly direct comparison of the two? I’m also interested in the positioning of the speakers, whether their transmission line design really does allow close placement to a wall? Thanks in advance

    WTD: 2 Pairs (4) Matching RCA interconnect Cables

    Thanks all, I have a couple of new Mark Grant cables winging their way to me courtesy of @Iceman 16 heads up.

    Help identifying component!?

    Thanks, I think you are correct. According to the BOM, CP702 is listed as: Encapsulated Component 0.1uf + 120ohms So it’s a surge protector.

    Help identifying component!?

    I opened up my new reel to reel deck (Sony TC-377) this afternoon to check its condition and noticed a component that has bubbled and leaked. The component is connected to the voltage selector and is branded NCC but some of the markings have burnt off. One pin of the component is connected to the red 240v pin of the voltage selector and the other is connected to the pin of the voltage selector that is connected to the white wire from the transformer and a white wire that runs to the power switch on the front of the deck. See pic attached along with the circuit diagram. can anyone tell me what this component is? Thanks
  13. Bump & Price drop.

    WTD: 2 Pairs (4) Matching RCA interconnect Cables

    Hi John. Thanks for the offer, the Thors are too long and I really do want matching cables as it is for use in a bi-amp set-up.
