  1. Looks like the "Mark I", as the "Mark II" has "Mark II" written in red next to the model number, and this item doesn't seem to have that annotation.
  2. I read your post, and then re-read the title. I thought you wrote "I just sold my wife." Glad I got that wrong.
  3. "I build concrete furniture." Now there's something you don't hear every day. Love your work.
  4. If you can make an insurance claim, would you not be getting a replacement 250i or, perhaps, a 340ix?
  5. Okay, I'll bite. Why are you replacing the Holton? Are the options you mentioned in your original post really that much better, or is it really an integrated that you want?
  6. I can see why you are disappointed. Have a look at this shot from Elac's website. No sound insulation and the drivers are not even connected.
  7. I think I resent being described as "diseased".
  8. The top one is from pbnaudio - https://pbnaudio.com/custom-turntables/
  9. Item: Two Antique Valve Table Radios Location: Perth, North of the river Price: $25.00 each Item Condition: The tecnico seems to be in pretty good physical shape. The Kriesler is pretty good except for the cracks as shown in the photo’s. See below please. Reason for selling: No longer required. Payment Method: Cash Extra Info.: I had the Kriesler serviced some years ago. The guy who did the work added the short, skinny antenna, and I think changed the knobs, because the originals were damaged. I am including what I believe to be the original knobs in this sale, even though they are broken. It had been working until I tried it today. For some reason it does not pick up any signal. I must have had the tecnico serviced at some time, as the long, skinny red aerial is not original. I tested it today, and it worked and picked up signals just fine. BUT, once the tuning indicator got to the far right, it would not go back to the left. There seems to be a problem with the tuning mechanism. As a consequent of the problems, I am asking only $25 each, expecting that there is someone with the requisite skills to bring them up to snuff. My apologies for the lousy pictures - I had to cut out some parts, and I have no idea how to do it properly. Please note that the price is $25.00 for each radio, and I would prefer, if possible, to sell them together.
  10. I've seen pictures. Some show single standard posts, and some show dual posts for bi-wiring or bi-amping. There is nothing to indicate that they are odd, or that they don't take banana plugs or spades, or even bare wire. And I've not read that they are anything but normal. What's odd about the binding posts? Has someone changed them?
  11. I'll bet you were - that's a nice system. The "mood lighting" is great, and with the main lights off, even better I am sure.
  12. Colin, I can't help with regards to the hi-fi, but I wanted to offer my condolences to you and your family.
  13. No, I didn't - not yet, anyway. It is an itch at this time, which hasn't developed into a disease. I've love to hear them, but it isn't worth the bother and risk due to the distance involved. Thanks for the responses and for the information, everyone.
