  1. Where exactly in Bucks are you?
  2. The MA50’s were very highly rated in their day. I had a pair in the late 90’s, fed direct from a Wadia 21 player into some LV Avatars - absolutely superb.
  3. All three models were bargains at their rrp’s (this one was well over a grand by the time it was shipped and through customs). I’ve just boxed it up and it is so beautifully made with a very tactile nature and a surprising heft to it.
  4. Auralic Mini in black. Boxed in perfect condition. Will be reset and removed from my Auralic account. Fabulous streamer - this is the 4th one I have had. Upgrade to Aries forces sale. I bought this from a seller in Germany so the wallwart psu has a 2-pin plug. I can include the travel adapter I have been using. Asking £250 (firm) collected from Northamptonshire NN6 or UK delivery £10 Europe delivery £20
  5. Fabulous sounding and beautifully made integrated amplifier based on the 47Labs gainclone style. 55w per channel and will drive most speakers with a very clean neutral sound. I had particular enjoyment from both Proac 1SC and Tablette Anniverary and can imaging it being superb with Living Voice, Harbeth, Audio Note etc. I have owned this particualy amp twice and have also had the original 25i and the 25ir - there are loads of amazing reviews of these versions on the net. This is the most powerful version he made, before he sadly stopped making amps to concentrate on mains stuff (presuambly much higher margins!!). The pre and power sections have their own power supplies. The preamp and front display come on as soon as you switch the power on at the wall, but the power amp only comes on when you flick the green switch on the back by the IEC inlet. In superb condition with remote. Although there a few buttons on the remote it only controls volume up and down and input change only. The other buttons have no effect as per the designers 'less is more' philosophy. Asking £450.00 firm. Happy to demo (I'm in Northamptonshire NN6) or can ship to anywhere in Europe. UK £12 / Europe £20.
  6. I bought one on Sunday so this thread is now dead.
  7. Ok will sort that Simon. Just deleted loads of stuff so should be loads of space in my inbox now.
  8. Looking for an Auralic Aries Femto version. Must be in excellent condition and preferably boxed. Happy to buy with or without the linear power supply as I already have one which I use with a Mini. Looking at recent ebay sales I’m willing to pay around £650 with the linear psu or £500 without. Shipping to Northamptonshire will be required if you are more than about 30 miles away.
  9. I was just giving batteredhaggis the contact details of someone on PFM (who isn't a member here). I'd love them but not currently in the market for new speakers.
  10. I had one for a while. Very decent DAC though the massive blue display was annoying and I had a very weird electrical issue which meant whenever I turned on anything else electrical (desk lamp, light switch, heater etc) the DAC would stop for a second or so. Never had that with any other component before or since??
  11. Had mine for two months now - just do exactly what it says on the tin. My days of box swappingg are over. Really good sound (equivalent to a decent £1-2k amp and £1-2k speakers) plus all the digital gubbins and streaming built in. The Tidal part of the app isn't as good as the one from Auralic or Oppo yet but hopefully they can continue to improve it. The DSP really helps you tune them to the room / taste. I did try a nice Rel subwoofer with them but preferred the sound without it - more than enough bass, I actually have it turned down to the minimum setting.
