  1. Hello there I was holding the stands back for someone but I haven’t heard back so, yes, they are included. Best wishes ANut
  2. A short tunnel from the front of your house to your place of listening should do the trick.
  3. AUDIO NOTE AN-K SPe SPEAKERS Bought new from an authorised AN dealer. Bi-wirable. Fantastic sound with low-power valve amplification. They are finished in a beautiful Russian birch burl veneer and are totally unmarked. Gloss black AudioNote matching stands now included. Very light use. Original packaging and paperwork included. .......... Was seeking £1,750 ONO, will accept £1,650 Location: South Coast between Portsmouth and Southampton. Collection only, but will consider delivering to a mutually convenient location on the M4/M27/A3/A27. Inspection welcome.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion, I listen to all sorts so will investigate further.
  5. Q Acoustics are a new one on me, I will investigate further - thanks for the suggestion.
  6. Gee, I remember the Pioneer SA500A! It was my first serious amp and I bought one for about £32 from an emporium at the Centre Point end of Tottenham Court Road c 1972. It fed a pair of Goodmans Havants, from memory. Thanks for the offer of a listen in Chichester, leave that one with me to organise.
  7. To keep the story short and sweet, I am in the process of getting off the rather expensive SET merry go round and reverting to my first love, a Quad based vintage system. Call it old age, but this is the kit I was brought up on and various impending life changes dictate that I have to watch the audio pennies somewhat. So, without further ado, I am appealing to you good Wammers to help me draw up a short list of speakers which will be happy on the receiving end of all that my Quad 303 can throw at them, but further down the line, will give me the scope to have a play with, say, some Quad IIs. In the frame are: Spendor BC1s - Pros: plenty around, are an easy load for valve and solid state amps, can be repaired, relatively inexpensive at £400 - £500 the pair SH. Cons: difficult to audition, on the large side for my smallish listening room, plug ugly although that’s not a deal breaker...... Harbeth P3 ESRs - Pros: quite a following, beautifully made, can be serviced for the foreseeable future. Cons: mixed reviews (lack of bass), expensive at £1,000 - £1,400 SH Any others? I’ve had ESL57s and ESL63s but must reluctantly rule these out on the grounds of space - or rather the lack of it. As you can see, I have already shot myself in the foot by shortlististing the P3ESRs, which are contemporary and not vintage, so I haven’t ruled out considering a moden alternative. The HECO Elementa 300 has been mentioned by a dealer I know and whose opinion I trust. All suggestions welcome. ANut
  8. Now bought a mint pair offered by a fellow WAMmer.

  10.

Asking £450 for the set. NOW WITHDRAWN FROM SALE Collection preferred, but can courier or post if required.
