  1. Some better news here ... https://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2020/01/sonos-backpedals-says-all-products-will-work-past-may/
  2. You could have some fun with these ... how about a Cain and Cain super Abby clone!?
  3. I’ve spent a couple of afternoons at Robs listening to this amp and it’s really good. Good bass, not always a given with EL84, and all the mid range beauty and top end sparkle that is. A lot of sound for the pound.
  4. For your consideration - my rather special Phase Style monoblocks and matching Pre amp. I’d been on a bit of mission to source these for a few years after being strongly recommended the brand by a Russian audio acquaintance. I was delighted to secure these and I’ve loved owning them but they aren’t really the family friendly amp I’ll need for the coming years and I may as well sell them rather than store them. Phase Style Company was founded in Lviv Ukraine in 1998. It’s main focus of activity is to design and manufacture high quality pre and power amplifiers. These amps were factory serviced and upgraded in 2014, and the preamp is just back from another service from the excellent Graeme/Ampregen. Some specs here. PhaSt Preamp Specifications Weight: 6.2 Kg Dimensions (cm): 6.0 H * 42 W * 30 D Circuit Type: Full pre-amplifier (no feedback) Inputs: 4 Line Levels (150mV) Outputs: 1 Main Out Input Impedance: 100 kOhms Noice (CCIR): <100 dB Frequency Response: 10 Hz to 50 kHz ±1dB Consumption: 24 Watts AC Power Requirements: 220-240V 50/60 Hz PhaSt 6C33C Triode Specifications: Weight: 14.5 Kg Dimensions (cm): 17 H * 21 W * 42 D Power Output: 18 Watts Circuit Type: Single-Ended Triode in Class A Input Sensitivity: 450 mV for full output Input Impedance: 100 kOhms Noise and Hum: -85 dB below rated output Frequency Response: 10 Hz to 70 kHz @ 1 Watt Tubes: 1 x 6C33C; 1 x 6SN7; 1 x 6SL7 Consumption: 150 Watts AC Power Requirements: 220-240V 50/60 Hz Warm-Up Time: 15 Minutes They are in good condition but they aren’t perfect. There’s a ding bottom left on one of the power amps, under the Facia, and a previous owner has glued one badge back on badly, so there’s residue. There’s also some scratching to the Facia of the pre. None of that bothered me, but the fastidious need not apply. Some photos here. https://www.ebayphotogallery.com/zdjecia2/phast-6sn7-preamplifier-with-phast-6c33c-triode-power-amplifiers/10461832/1#zdj3 £1200 firm collected from GL5. I can’t post these, but, as a sweetener, will include, free of charge, a DIY Jean Hiraga power amp that works fine and sounds great but needs a new plinth.
  5. Another vote for Prima Luna. I’ve just picked up a Dialogue 2 for £750 and I’m a bit blown away by it.
  6. Edit - Answered my own question I think!
  7. As per title - anyone got a set they’d be prepared to move on? thanks, Jake
  8. Haha - As well as I ever manage Richard! Silly bloody hobby
  9. Watching with interest, as this arrived with me yesterday ...
  10. Another vote for the genalex red lions here. The 12ax7s are superb too. Adams offer price of £20 per new valve is excellent, I wouldn’t be looking much further than that personally.
  11. @volante .... could be just what you’re looking for?
  12. Pro-Ject RPM 10 Carbon?
