  1. No mods or changes to either the TT or PSU. No idea on servicing though
  2. All the gibbon series are bamboo in either mink, cherry or mahogany. Mine are the cherry finish which I prefer as mink is almost black and mahogany is that funny American red stain they like.
  3. It's a rather fitting name for Southampton (I'm actually about half way between Southampton and Portsmouth)
  4. Howdy, have updated the profile or does it need to be in the ad as well?
  5. Line Magnetic LM-518i I purchased this from China and will include a 240v > 220v step-down I purchased for it if collected. Comes with Psvane HIFI 845s, Gold Lion KT77s, EI 12ax7 and a Gold Lion GZ34 (plus the original valves that shipped with it if you collect) Has a small dent on the back bottom corner. Has the ultimate warm valve sound with 22 Watts of power. £1400 cash on collection preferred as shipping is possible but will be very expensive as it weighs 40kg IMG_20181120_173943 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0191 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0189 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0188 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0190 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  6. Purchased last year from the first owner and is now around 3 years old. I've fitted some nice Mullards which cost me £500 and will be included: NOS MATCHED QUAD OF MULLARD BLACKBURN EL84 RX1 SQUARE GETTER 1958 2x NOS CV4004 MULLARD MITCHUM R1A3 BOX PLATE 1x NOS CV4003 MULLARD I have the original box but would prefer cash on collection so the buyer can see it working, if you want to arrange your own courier I'm happy for it to be picked up. £2500 IMG_0051 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0052 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0053 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  7. Purchased this a few years ago from the original owner. It is an early 90's one and has never been rebuilt or messed with. He told me he had put around 300 hours on it so I'll say it has 1000 hours to be on the safe side. £750 inc RM special delivery IMG_0047 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0046 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0045 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  8. Really want to sell this as a package as the plinth was cut with the mounting hole for this arm. Technics SP10 mk2 with power supply Acoustand plinth with 30mm mounting hole cut at 304.5 mm Groovemaster II tonearm with titanium armature and silver wiring. I'll throw in the arm cable I got and an FR headshell if someone buys as a package. SP10 mk2 - £1000 Plinth - £200 Arm - £1000 (I have the original box and tools etc with it) As a package I'll let it go for £1,900 cash on collection.

  9. Purchased last year from BD Audio, the cart was Jack's own and the SUT was new. The cart probably has around 200-300 hours on it now as I upgraded fairly quickly to the gold as I like the Io1 so much. Io1 - £1100 (inc RM special delivery but insurance is £500 max) ANS2L - £300 inc RMSD If you buy them both I'll do it for £1200 IMG_0042 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0043 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0044 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr
  10. Purchased these last year from the US and had them imported. House move forces sale otherwise given how rare they are and good they sound I'd love to keep them. I have the original boxes but would prefer cash on collection so the buyer can hear them working. If you want to arrange your own courier I'd be happy with this as long as they are collected before the end of September. £1800 IMG_0041 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0040 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr IMG_0039 by The Biglebowski, on Flickr

  12. Because none of the mods had the bottle to stand up and say it was wrong. Well done for cherry picking, what you fail to understand is that of your 61,000 members, 60,800 joined to sell or buy something and haven't posted since. I haven't posted in the 2ch where I was previously fairly prolific. This stopped because it is now just people applauding cables and reviews for £20k Linn DACs. I don't despise anyone but as above, the demise of the classifieds is patently obvious to anyone with an ounce of common sense. In your bid to monetise the wam with subscription benefits the classifieds have died a death and I am now one of the 60,800 who only use it for the classifieds. Or what, I get a PM saying my previous post has been hidden for an insult I fail to see yet you are free to throw about veiled threats? If it is a threat PM me and we can discuss it face to face when I am in London next.
  13. Flounce? you banned me, you need to top up the fish oil supplements as your memory is degrading. If you look you'll see I haven't posted in months and only now because of this rubbish, you sign up for a viglink service and then use it as an excuse to slag off the competition and promote your own shop, pretty poor morals if you ask me. I did rejoin in case I wanted to buy something from the classifieds but you have messed those up so badly that it's dead now. If you don't want me here (because I don't suck up like the other sycophantic members) get rid of me, I don't see anything of merit on the wam anymore anyway.
  14. Not true, you signed up to Viglink and they were trialling a new redirect service for 3 weeks. Slagging off the competition with untruths is very unbecoming of a professional business, beat them with better prices and service not misrepresenting the facts.
  15. If you can stretch the budget a bit I may be selling my 3 month old (made Jan 2017) Whest PS.30 rdt Special Edition for £2000
