    Floor stander Virgin

    Several pairs in the classifieds. Here's just 2 examples A bit over budget but we'll worth considering.
  2. Plenty of old mattresses littering bathrooms and corridors that could be used on the floor as acoustic wadding. 😁😁
  3. Maybe the top floor could be the classical and plinky plonky music floor?

    I'm not technical so may be way off track, but is it possible that the ferro fluid in the tweeters could do with a refresh? (that is of course if they actually have any in them).
  5. Why not, them EU kettle leads can be forced into a shaver socket so atleast there's a power source 😱😱
  6. How about the double 5 challenge. System must weigh less than 5kg and be able to be stripped down, passed through a fixed sized aperture (size to be determined) then reassembled and working inside 5 minutes.

    Charity Sale - £415.25

    Yeah the OL did go to cheap but hey ho, I'd been trying to shift it on and off for 6 months and was fed up tripping over it so thought sod it let it go. So in the end I shifted 3 TTs, (PL12D, Rock & OL) an amp (SA-500A) and the atacama stands. Will be putting the Ditton 15, Maxim2s, Pioneer 400X & Sony CDP-791 in the classifieds somewhen in the coming Week's.

    Looking for advice on bookshelf speakers that can be wall mounted

    I have a pair of Goodmans Maxim2 here you can have for £50 delivered (assuming your in the UK) they are surprisingly good, and the pair used by Bencat at Keggy this weekend got great feedback from punters.

    Arcam 2 speakers

    Okay just read through the 2+ review (I had the 2+ until 2003) and the drivers are Cobex units. 2+ upgrades: Bi-wire Xover had some component changes but not stated, also better layout + thinner tracks. Internal wiring was changed from stranded to 1mm² solid core. Bungs not supplied. Internal wadding reduced Original Arcam 2 review was Hifi Answers 1985 & the 2+ from which I got the above info was May 1988.

    Arcam 2 speakers

    Just checked the 1988 sales brochure I have and it says for the Ar am 1,2, & 3 use Arcam own proprietary polymer coned bass/mid units and also a proprietary dome tweeters. I will have a quick skim of the 1988 Arcam reviews brochure I have to see if there's more info.

    It's not people in general I want to ignore, it's tedious threads that go round in circles or drone on with overly technical content, that I want to clear from the next unread link, so they don't keep coming up.

    Guide to price for a second hand Michell orbe

    If you ring planet hifi who have an ex dem Orbe SE with SME V AND Koetsu black on eBay for £6.5k, they will let you have that Orbe with around 100hrs on it for £2.5k as a bare deck (I asked about this option a couple of weeks back) you could pick up an arm (Rega/OL) & a cart for £400 ish.
