    Phil Pm'ed you.
  2. Jack I replied to your saturday PM on saturday night - in case you didn't see it .
  3. Nice classic sansui/akai/wharfedale system - looks like something out of the classic hifi section of the props department. Model numbers of the amp and tuner unclear from the pics but might be of interest to a classic Wammer. (I have no connection with seller). https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Hi-Fi-with-Akia-Open-reel-Sansui-Amp-and-Warfdale-Dovedale-Speakers/223280603772?hash=item33fc8fa27c:g:LIAAAOSw8kVcECCF
  4. I bought one DIA-250S to drive a pair of Gallo Reference 3.5s and liked it so much that I bought another to drive a desk-top pair of Gallo Strada 2 Satellites. Very happy with the sound and the compact nature of the Gato and the numerous features - build quality and aesthetics are excellent as well as one would expect from Denmark. Have spoken to Gato a couple of times and always received excellent service and advice. So far the system has performed faultlessly. I discovered that one can by mistake (by pressing the standby button for too long) put the unit into "SP OFF" mode which disables the speaker outputs. He (Frederik?) explained that to re-enable the speaker outputs one simply prssses and holds the standby button for 4 secs. All worked perfectly - a great compact integrated amp.
  5. I have one of Gordon's very old pre-amps (possibly a prototype) that needs sevicing. Anybody know Gordeon's current contact deatils? If so please PM me. Thanks, neil
  6. Another pair on Gumtree - Loughborough £400 (I have no connection) https://www.gumtree.com/p/speakers/2-x-rare-early-imf-vintage-1972-large-floor-standing-transmission-line-speakers-wood-cased-/1269141939
  7. I might be selling my Viva Solista MkI soon - single ended 845/211 Class A integrated with remote, four inputs and useful sub-out - sublime. No onboard phono stage but you only need to add one box (pno stage) and you 're done.
  8. Funky DIY version of M-S pageant II's. Look quite well made. Wonder what they sound like. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MORDAUNT-SHORT-CUSTOM-LOUDSPEAKERS-SUPER-FUNKY/322566951135?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20140122125356%26meid%3D9fac6540296b493697cf458420cdc014%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D192201409766
  9. Have you considered the Tsakiridis Aeolos Super Plus KT120 valve integrated amplifier for sale on this site - not too far from your budget? I have no connection with the seller
