Avondale Arcam Alpha 5+ CD Player

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Arcam Alpha 5+ CD player masterfully modded by Les at Avondale

The mods cost £350 on top of donor player. I believe Les puts in a whole new Non oversampling DAC and chose this player as the base for his mods due to great transport it uses as standard.

It will compete with players that cost very much more money and rarely come up for sale.

I would prefer collection as postal system is not always kind to CD players but will post at the risk of the buyer.

£200 + postage costs if needed

I'm told that Les retains the DAC chip (it’s a 1541), but removes the upsampling and then most of the mods are to improve the power supply.

Potentially interested Spider but to complete sale will need to hopefully arrange help with Wam Taxi!

Any one coming south for hols or visits? I'll be in Essex Thursday and could make payment before; obviously. PM on the way. Otherwise I'm in Dover.

Are you close to Speedracer?

He is picking something up from me for NSM soon, perhaps the AAA5+ could get closer to you with him.

Super Wammer

Speedracer also pops to mine occasionally or NSMs, so either  Chichester or Lancing is a possibility for a pickup location.

It would be perfect if I was able to make your bakeoff! Alas I'm away that day and according to the map Speedracer isn't really that close to me.

I'm booked to be in Braintree Essex on Sat 11th August if anyone is close that day possible?

Can you give me a ring Wed please and if it's a go, I'll pop up a Wam Taxi thread. Hopefully the spirit still lives on and a solution is found... :^
