  1. I have finally been pushed to move on my beloved Musical Fidelity KWP/KW1000 Tri-Vista system. It comprises the much rated KWP preamp with a separate powersupply and two KW1000 monoblocks with their own powersupply. This is 1 of only 50 units ever built and I would possibly claim that this was the best ever made by MF. Recently services by MF and huge cost and in great condition. Velvety and smooth delivering the best music to ones ears. The units are very heavy(50+ kg each) and no longer have the crates. Costed over £21k when they were brand new. Very rarely come up for sale and had this one come in from MF after a customer downsized. I think £8250 is a fair price to ask for the system and an appreciating solution that really play music the way it should, very relaxed.
  2. Rare opportunity to purchase a Caspian M Series Dual Mono Pre-amplifier and a pair of matching Roksan Caspian M1 Mono Block Power Amplifiers. I have owned the equipment from new. It is in immaculate condition, coming from a pet and smoke free home and installed in a custom made rack. (The rack is not part of the auction.) I have the original Roksan boxes and packaging, instructions and Remote Control. £1395. I am in Bromley, Kent. See photo's for full specifications. What Hi fi 5 Star Award Winner – Best Pre/Power Amp under £5000 Review from What Hi fi: "The preamp is built for performance. It's a dual-mono design with complimentary, symmetrical layout, and a lot of attention paid to power supplies; there are separate power supply provisions for the left and right amplification, the buffer section, the control and logic system and even the optional phono stage. In fact, everything possible is done to maximise performance. The result is staggeringly transparent. “Those expecting a slightly uprated Caspian M Series Integrated performance will be shocked. Capable as that amplifier is for the money, this pre/power’s breadth of talent is on another planet, particularly when it comes to midrange performance and overall clarity. You get clean, crisp and insightful presentation that captures every vocal nuance with class leading skill. There are no weaknesses. At this price level, qualities such as dynamics, tonal balance and imaging have to be spot on, and they are. This amp is special because it never draws attention to itself – the recording comes first and it refuses to colour the sound to make it more exciting or more pleasant to listen to. You get what the original sound recording produces. The sound is staggering. An excellent buy that puts the opposition to shame when it comes to sonic ability.”
  3. Gato Audio PWR-222 Monoblock Amplifiers, RRP: £11,180 Ken Kessler of Hi-Fi News recently got his hands on the Gato Audio PWR-222 Monoblock Amplifiers. After a thorough review and a lab test from Editor Paul Miller, the Class D amplifiers were given the "Outstanding Product" award. The full review can be read in the June 2017 issue of Hi-Fi News. Here are some highlights; "I had them up-and-running in three minutes flat once out of their boxes". "The title track from At Last...oozed with warmth, and the space around Rawls and Dianne Reeves was deliciously tube-like". "...I turned to the raunch of Led Zepplin's Celebration Day...and was rewarded with what I had hoped for: something grandiose". "It was a seductive sound, and I had no trouble listening for hours on end". "I'd say the Gato PWR-222s delivered some of the silkiest sounds I've heard in recent times, wrapped up in a (non-magnetic) suit that would do Savile Row proud". As well as an "Outsatnding Product" award, the Gato Audio PWR-222 Monoblocks were given a remarkable Sound Quality score of 87%. Elite Audio is the official UK distributor of Gato Audio.

  5. VAC Auricle Musicbloc Valve monoblock amplifiers. Fully serviced, and boxed, in superb condition. £1550 plus postage or collected from SE London.Wonderful sounding 70W per channel valve monos designed to get the clarity of 300B amps with the power and authority of KT88s. These can use KT88, KT90, or KT120. And they really look fantastic.The great thing about these amps are that they are powerful enough to use with insensitive speakers (I've used them with 86dB Harbeths) but they are so subtle and quiet they work superbly with very sensitive speakers. The clarity is exceptional, and whilst they have better resolution and clarity than any amp I've had before (valve or solid state), they have all the magic with voices and instrumental tone that we look for in valve designs. I've also used them with Vaughan Cabernet 1, which is very much a full range speaker, and they had gripping live dynamics. This review is a nice summary.http://www.positive-feedback.com/Iss...ac_auricle.htmThe current VAC amps are extremely expensive, so these are an ideal way of tasting the magic of Kevin Hayes' designs at a relatively affordable price. I will supply them with 4 x Philips ECC82 input valves and a virtually new matched quad of KT120s. Input Impedance is 100Kohms, which gives most preamps an easy ride, but they are not very sensitive so do like a reasonable amount of gain from the pre-amp. I used them with an Audio Research LS26, which was a very good match. I also briefly heard them with a Shindo Aurieges, which sounded great; a very seductive pairing. Biasing is done manually by the easily accesible dials on the front panel. They have taps for 2, 4, and 8 Ohms, which makes them extremely flexible.They are reassuringly weighty, due to very substantial output transformers, but they don't get hot (except for the valves) and they run quiet.The service was done by the peerless Graeme at Ampregen, who made some subtle improvements, such as extra damping to make them even more quiet.Finally, VAC are one of the most helpful companies I've come across; the designer, Kevin Hayes, is very patient with any questions and an all round good guy of the industry.http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/...m/IMG_8199.jpghttp://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/...m/IMG_8197.jpg
