    Musical Fidelity Titan Reference Power Amplifiers

    Hi DZ The only way I’d consider shipping it outside the U.K. would be for the buyer to arrange the shipping and insurance. Of course I would take off the shipping amount I would spend shipping to U.K.... PM me to chat further....... Cheers Tim

    These are so heavy that they will have to be shipped via pallet delivery, which is fine but quite slow. I'd prefer to meet up for collection ideally....I'm in N. Ireland but could do a round trip on the boat and meet within c.100 miles of Scottish or Welsh border areas...

    Speaking to John Sampson he says this is the best British amplifier that was, or probably will ever be made.... Apparently they were were built totally without compromise and only by special order. There’s only around 20 in existence.

    Loads of interest from elsewhere...particularly the States but it’s UK delivery only.

    Apparently (after speaking to a former MF employee) these were only made as a special order and c.20 only ever made.....

    Hi Rob N. Ireland, right beside Belfast.....so it'll be a shipping job. Expect delivery to take up to 2 weeks, these have to be strapped to pallets and freighted, no air mail for these puppies :P

    Hey R Well I wouldn't have ever sold them, but I can't justify them for tv duties. They are superb; truly an end of the line amp, there's no point trying to upgrade them. And you've never heard your speakers until they've had 2000 watts up their chuff, the bass control is just plain silly. I haven't found a bass heavy track yet that the Titans don't just laugh at.....
  9. A house move means my Boulder, Titan, Revel Salon system is going to be relegated to the TV room, so of course it doesn't warrant keeping. Only c.20 amplifiers ever made they are a collectors piece, I haven't seen a set for sale before. I bought the amps power amps c.5 years ago as an open box but never played. They wiped the floor with the Boulder power amps I had at the time. One of the quietest power amps ever made, you won't hear a better power amp below £50-£60k, and even above this price point the amps I have auditioned were different rather than better.They are immaculate in every way, without any scratches, scores or dents. The only issue is that the rear two mesh grills (on both amps) have discoloured from the sunlight (they have gone to a colour between black and brass). Taking the lid off, popping them out and some matt black spray would easily sort this but I don't want to open them up. They come with all original packaging, boxes, paperwork etc. £8500 including shipping but I will have a look at reasonable offers. I would also a swap for a valve preamp of similar cost and quality for my valve system.....WHY?

    What forum changes do you want guys?

    Maybe change the forum title - ‘2 channel debate’ to ‘2 channel discussion’. Seems like it sets the wrong tone from the off....maybe it’s just me being my usual over sensitive self

  13. The subject of my massive speakers came up not long into the ‘we’re an item phase’, only a quick convo required though - There’s the hifi. There’s the door. You can choose either. The hifi was there long before you arrived and with a 40% divorce rate there’s a fair chance long after you’ve gone.... No need for a drama 😉 Then she tried to win little consolation prizes like a scented candle or flower vase on top of the speakers, but quickly realised the flowers and candles in the bin was just a waste...

    I'm selling this for a mate. This ole thing blew my K-01 into the dust a couple of years ago destroying my faith in 'hifi has moved forward'.....I'd have kept it but my dad got all my CD's a couple of years back. Completely mint too... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wadia-WT...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
