  1. Bought by myself not realising the 2 records spin at 45 rpm and I can't be a***d changing the belt on my TT every time I want to play it ! The record has had the shrinkwrap removed though is unplayed. £12.50 to mainland UK. Cheers.
  2. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Later-Years-Pink-Floyd/dp/B07WP7568V?ref_=ast_slp_dp http://thelateryears.pinkfloyd.com/ Now that's a Box set !
  3. I dream of hearing a Tron 7. I don't know what a Brinkmann Bardo is ! Quick edit - Just googled Brinkmann Bardo. Sweet Jesus !
  4. Careful consideration is needed on my part I think. I thought I'd been had with the Project Classic, it just didn't sound as good as I expected it too. It was however utterly transformed with the Goldring 1042. More reflection (and record playing) required methinks. Turntable bake off !

  6. I only recently spotted that the Eucalyptus and Rosewood finished of the P3ESR seem to have crept up to £2k. I'm not saying they're not worth it, but I'm glad I bought mine when I did, which is years ago. Having said that, I'm guessing most owners tend to keep them ? I suppose it saves the expense of moving to a bigger house for bigger speakers ! So, anyone hear box swapped Harbeths ?
  7. Sense as always Rabski. Frankly I wish I discovered this new fangled vinyl playback ages ago, it's awesome ! I've still not ruled out moving the Project TT and Radford 25 on and buying a f**k off mental turntable .
  8. Listing updated...………….. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Croft-Pre-Amp-All-Valve-Micro-25-R-with-MM-phono-input/193064536720?hash=item2cf38b0a90:g:s8kAAOSwASBdNx99
  9. Thanks for the replies chaps. The PS1 did seem to increase in price somewhat. If I did try one it would be used. I see a couple of MM/MC ones sold on ebay for £550 and £900, though the former was pick up only. I am curious to try an all valve dedicated phono stage, but wonder if there would be a significant improvement on the 25R stage. Just remember, it's all about the gear, nothing to do with music .
  10. Hi, I'm wondering about trying one of these (all over the place at the moment !). Any views on sonic improvements over the phono stage in a Croft 25R ? I've no problem having a vinyl only set up from time to time. They are pretty !
  11. His reply stated...……. Hi it is a micro 25 R pre amp with phono amp. sorry about the listing. If this is correct retail is £1400 (and the listing/description could be clearer !)
  12. Nice story Nick. I wouldn't spend that amount on a car but to hear of someone purchasing these sounds perfectly reasonable to me . A HiFi takes you to beautiful places. I shall keep my eye open for the bake off you mention, I've only ever attended one in the past but would dearly love to hear these speakers. I do admire the UK heritage brands (for want of a better word). Nice outcome this.
