  1. That's great news re your son, it sounds like he is progressing well and I wish you all the best for when you go to your first class. Try and get your son to show you some fundamentals before you take your first class, you won't feel so lost as a result and please update us as to how you get on.
  2. Slowly, very slowly Mr Tarzan. I was on the mat three times this week after yet another lay off due to yet another injury. In fact I have spent more time off the mat than I have on due to injuries. That said I still love it and although my progress has been slow I am still committed to the life long journey. I play a completely different game now. I roll simply to survive and use defensive techniques to try and slow the roll to a pace that is more suited to an older grappler like myself. Due to the lack of mat time I am still a white belt and will be for the foreseeable future but my game is coming on and I can't imagine giving it up. I have made a lot of new friends, I have lost weight and I am physically much stronger now (despite the injuries) and without a doubt it has improved my life considerably.

    WTD: network streamer for use as a transport

    I have a silver Onkyo C-N7050 CD + Streamer with remote available if that suits you. It is unmarked and the cd player section has had very little use so plenty of life left in it. Unfortunately I don't have the box or manual. Looking for £150 + postage. LINK here to 5star What hifi review.

    WTD floor standing speakers

    What about a pair of 'like new' B&W 683 S2 finished in black ash. Bought new in 2015 then stored in their original boxes for nearly 3 years and only recently brought out to check them over. The bases have never been used as they are still in their original packaging. Looking for £700 + postage. Good luck in your search.

    Help on renewal of turntable platter.

    I have used Autosol metal polish on an Ariston RD40 and it came up a treat. Beware though that this method may make things worse with some alloys/metals (early Linn LP12 LINK: and ) It would be good to see a before and after shot. Good luck.
  9. I am looking for a Sonic Impact T-Amp. If you have one available please PM me. Thanks. Now no longer required as I have bought a new one. Cheers.

    Class A SS with Monitor Golds???

    I used an old but fantastic Marantz PM94 MK2 with a pair of 15" Tannoy Monitor Golds and it was a very good match. Unfortunately my other half (at the time) hated the look and size of the Tannoys and they had to go. I would have been very happy to keep the combo but SWMBO ruled otherwise. I hope this helps and good luck with your search.

    Hi Nigel, PM me your info/price re your A85 and I will have a think about it. Cheers.

    Arcam P85 Power Amplifier **SOLD**

    I will probably get someone to look at it as it appears totally dead and might be a simple fix. If it is repairable without costing to much I will go down that route then sell it on probably. I bought a Yamaha based system as another temporary stop gap in my search for a suitable amp for my ARTs, hence moving the P85 on.
  13. This Arcam P85 Power amplifier (80 Watt) is in a superb unmarked condition. There are no scratches, dings or dents and it is working perfectly. I have been using this with an Arcam A85 amplifier driving my Art loudspeakers with ease. LINK to Arcam page. I do not have the original box or user manual (available online) but it will be very well packed for safe transit. Looking for £200 all in. This includes postage to most places in the UK. If you live somewhere that has extra postage costs please let me know. Any questions please just ask. Thank You.

    CD player no display

    Have you opened her up and checked for any obvious signs? I had a similar problem with a Musical Fidelity CD player and it turned out to be the ribbon cable between the display board and the main board. All I did was remove the main board ribbon, blew in some compressed air and re-seated the cable and all was well again. I know it's a long shot. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    Hi Andy, If you are looking for stand mounts I would recommend you consider a pair of Monitor Audio GX50. It just so happens that I have a pair of GX50's (a1 condition, no boxes) that are now surplus to my requirements and I would offer them to you for £395 + £15 posted. Good luck with your search. Cheers, Rory.
