    My Modwright is 35 kilos. 250 watts into 4 ohms. But it’s current you need. Very quick current!

    I think that Anthony/Electric Cafe uses Class D - Nord from memory. R

    Hi Jobseeker, I have W8 speakers. Amp is Modwright LS36.5 pre into Modwright KW150SE power amp. They like power, I seem to remember Sven Boenicke has been quoted as saying a kilowatt is OK! Richard

    Hi Jobseeker, Glad you are as impressed with Boenicke as we all are on this thread. I have the W8 which replaced some Spendor S6E which I had used quite happily for 10 years. I was looking for a speaker of similar size but better quality. What was the clincher with the W8 for me was the soundstage and imaging. All the musicians are spread out in front of you and each can be discerned easily. I put the Spendors back in the system to demo them to the guy who bought them, I was back to listening to music coming out of two boxes. As Paul/Maverick says, give them time to run in - we’re talking months really. Then your gob will really be smacked! I’m pretty sure the Boenickes are my end game speaker. It would have to take something pretty special to knock them off their pedestal - and with the same WAF. Richard A

    Just received six LPs from Paul/Mellstock. Fantastic quality - like new vinyl. A great resource. Thanks Paul.

    Thanks Paul, Yes it’s the inners I want. Poly lined white paper is what I use. I buy them from my local vinyl shop when they have some available, which is not often! Thannks, may take you up on the Kegworth offer! R

    FS - Puresound L10 pre-amplifier

    Thanks Rabski, It has been provisionally sold on AoS which pleases me. I am not the hugest fan of the ethics of E Bay and wanted to sell it to a fellow enthusiast either here or over on AoS. It is a great pre-amp which I wish I had the space to use.

    Thanks Phil, I am taking a bit of a hit on this as I really don’t want to have to resort to E Bay!

    Price reduction. Now £895 plus shared carriage (I will pay half). I really dislike E Bay and would much prefer to sell it to an enthusiast on here.
