  1. i appear to be the owner of some ex-demo Larcs! Only had a couple of hours on them at the dealer and only just arrived with me so need plenty of running in. Any thoughts on how long run in takes? Any Larc users here? How have you got them positioned. I read a coupe of threads where guys had them on stands! Mine are driven by a Naim Supernait 2 with Naim speaker cable. I have some Mogami speaker cable ordered that should be here in a day or so.
  2. Open to offers for this fabulous Phono stage. Review here http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/vertere-acoustics-mg-1-turntable-sg-1-arm-and-phono-1-phono-stage/
  3. I have a Vertere Phono One in the classifieds. Up there with the very best £1k stages and second hand comes in well under the bottom end of your budget!
  4. Will do, I’m working away until Thursday evening so will do it on Friday if ok. I realise it says i’ve only had one post, I’ve had to reregister for some reason, over the years had plenty of posts and sales on the Wam.
  5. I have been playing all weekend with a new Phono Stage and comparing it to my Vertere Phono One and there’s not a lot in it, I could happily live with either, but I’ve made my mind up to move the Verter on. It’s a fabulous piece of kit, lots of very positive reviews on the web. Thought to be up there as one of the bench mark products in the £1000 bracket. Masses of configuration available for any cartridge. In good overall condition with a slight mark on the bottom right front corner, hard to see unless you pick it up to look. Also forgot to mention this is the mk2 version with the dip switches on the underside of the unit rather than inside the unit Hard to price this but how does £650 delivered.
  6. Obviously advertised too low, now sold.
  7. Gloss black Rel T7 sub for sale, in good condition, just not getting used. I do have the box but i’m Sure postage would be pretty hefty, just like the sub. Collection or I’ll help with delivery in central Scotland. Not sure what these are worth but how does £120 sound?
  8. Try Dave Fitton at Audio counsel (north Manchester) good guy and very knowledgeable and very helpful.
  9. Hi Nick is this still for Sale? If so could you do £300 delivered?
  10. Hi Spider i have a couple of cartridges that i'm looking to move on (I have settled on a Transfiguration), all low hours and excellent condition. a) ZYX R100 H, a stunning cart, i bought with low hours and have only added no more than 20 more, looking to get near what i paid for it which was £400 b) Audio Techinia AT33ptg/ii i bought this new last Sept (I use this as my reference when comparing all others, a great cartridge), had less than 50hrs looking for £300 if any of interest drop me a PM, cheers steve
