    Having seen recent prices for the Chord Signature 1.0m RCA/RCA Digital Interconnect I have reduced the price from £250 to £125.

    Cable Clear Out

    Its a stage of life thing. In the past I have been an active box swapper with three systems plus helping children set up their first proper systems, so hanging on to spares made a lot of sense. Now I am down to just the one system and don't plan on making any other changes, hence the clear out.
  6. A beautiful pair of external crossovers for Tannoy 15" Monitor Reds built by Paul Coupe at Reference Fidelity Components. Details of Paul's build and pictures can be seen on this thread here, post numbers 926 to 927. https://theartofsound.net/forum/showthread.php?26397-RFC-News/page93&highlight=monitor+red+crossovers Full Specification: External crossovers for 15 inch Tannoy Monitor Red 15 drive units; Oak veneered sides with smoked acrylic tops, A4 in plan size by about 110mm height, equipped with rubber feet, captive input and output leads (on same end) and oil finished to fine furniture standards with a final wax buff; Input to be a 0.5m captive OFC 2 core copper cable, terminated with 4mm banana plugs. Output to be 2.0m captive OFC 2 core copper cable terminated with a 90 degree XLR plug Circuit topography to be as per RFC’s “Reference” standard crossover with discrete signal and ground rails for LF/HF built onto solder tag boards, point to point wired Components to include high quality Mundorf capacitors in the signal path, high quality Pathaudio resistors within HF signal path, custom wound Janzten Air Cored low distortion low DCR bass inductors; Jantzen air cored HF notch filter inductors, Claritycap LF capacitors and solid enamelled copper rails. Whilst this crossover has been designed to closely mimic the factory crossovers, it improves on the factory supplied crossovers by introducing a discrete topology for reduced crosstalk/noise plus uses higher quality audio grade components built on high quality point to point copper rails. Importantly, it also introduces something the factory ought to have done by providing a switchable notch filter targeting the area of increased HF distortion and a spike in response at just over 3 Khz. Price £600 plus postage.
  7. In superb condition. Clean and untarnished enamel. Crossovers are original and have not been used or tested by me and will need servicing before use. I have used these drivers daily for the past two years using a pair of modern external crossovers and the sound is outstanding. Serial numbers 045884 and 046554 which makes them early 1960s production. Will be safely shipped in purpose made packaging or collection from Lymington, Hampshire. For international postage cost please enquire. These are currently on eBay for £5,000, but Wam price £4,500 including UK mainland postage. No offers, they are worth every penny at that price for a pair in such good condition.

    Yes it is. I think I have been a bit lazy in culling my surplus kit, but getting stuck in to it now.
