    For anyone interested there are a pair on 509 mk2 signature mono blocks for sale from hifi emporium no 75/250 5000 pounds. You just don't know when this equipment will become available. Someone is going to be very lucky. Cheers, Dave. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Sounds like me finding hens teeth. It's going to take a while. But I found my 859 in hifi for sale in wrong section. So you never know. Thanks to all again, Dave. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Think I'm going to just take my time with searching for an Acute mk1. Whatever I buy I'll send to be serviced. Just to be safe. A new laser mechanism is 50 quid, and labour is reasonable too, so I think it's worth the extra cost. I'm off to Scotland next month so will pop into Jordan acoustics and have a chat, you never know, I might be lucky. Thanks for information. I'll keep searching. Dave.

    I thought about 1200 euro for mk1. Similar price to wadia on ebay. Do you know of a dealer in my area? I live in Wrexham North Wales. Perhaps I may be lucky enough to get one through the trade. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Auction on acute mk1 ended. Very abruptly, back to the drawing board. Where are ear yoshino dealers based in North West, or North Wales? Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    I suppose so. But there must be a logical evolution to these players. What would a mk1 be worth these days? Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    What do you think a mk1 is worth money wise? Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Many thanks. Its an acute mk1 I'm looking at on flee Bay. It is currently at 730 euro and rising. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Another possibility is wadia 860, or 22. But no support, and old players you take a chance. With mk2 and mk 3 what is the difference compared with mk1? Thanks in advance. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Service costs from ear are another consideration. A transport for acute mk1 is currently 50 pounds. Priced it on 16/4/18 labour is 55 pounds per hour. I think that's very reasonable. I had 859 serviced about a year ago, the personal service and results were excellent. Timing of posts catch me out. Ear also gave loads of info including a build date in 2 week slot. So I know roughly build date. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Just because, it will match amp. 859se and is well supported. By ear. Cdx, naim don't have transports for these, so it would have to be whitchhat for repairs. I have oppo sonica and zen mk2 mini. But soon I am to retire, WiFi isn't always reliable, so an excellent cd player will be made good use of. Will I require an ear dac? Otherwise will dac in sonica do justice.?

    I currently have an 859se and possibly can acquire an acute mk1 I have spoken to ear yoshino and these are still serviceable. I was wondering if I'm best using a dedicated yoshino dac or for now use dac on oppo sonica, or would I be doing the acute school complete injustice. Thanks in advance. Dave.

    Baggawire. Can I ask what dac you use with the acute mk1? And does the mk1 have a remote? Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
