  1. How about an Elektra Ref HD - there's one in the classifieds.
  2. Like all things, if you want to get the best out of a source you have to put real effort into it. The question of which is best is moot as far as I’m concerned and only down to the level of love you’re prepared to dedicate to it. In my system the various files - ripped CDs and hi res downloads - are now my preferred choice over cd and vinyl and are a result of the effort I’ve put into improving dac, streamer, software etc. i still listen and enjoy cd and vinyl and Im sure I could get the vinyl up to scratch again but I really can’t be bothered and really only have the energy to maintain one source to its optimum.
  3. Yes, I reckon these softer ones might be better isolation for your Dyns. I use the small ones under my floorstanders - I think they might be a bit too solid for anything lighter.
  4. Let’s hope you’re right.
  5. That’s unlikely to happen again in the near future.
  6. Unfortunately my upgrade fell through so I've withdrawn this from sale.
  7. Sorry folks - this is withdrawn for now.
  8. An Expression of Interest only at this stage - depends on availability of upgrade. As you can hear from the picture this is an excellent amp with enough power, grip and finesse for most speakers. its in very good condition - no scratches or dents. I will take better pics if there is serious interest - don't want to take it out of the rack until necessary. Photos:
  9. Further information: I upgraded to a Giesler Gros in my main system last year. I didn't want to part with this but what's the point in it sitting in a cupboard? Its not the latest thing in dac terms but it still sounds terrific. I'm also amenable to a swap with cash either way for a decent CD transport - something like a Cyrus CD T Pick up only.

  10. I’ve been really happy with my 805 d3 since I got them a couple of years ago, and I’m completely off the merry-go-round. I loved them without subs - I was never a fan of subs - but recently added a couple of small SVSs which not only subtly reinforced those lower octaves but made unexpected improvements on top. After owning a series of speakers from Vienna Acoustic Mozart, Proac d18, B&w cdm7, and Maggie 1.7 I’ve become a convert to standmounts with subs and it’s very unlikely I will go to conventional floorstanders again. my little Proac 1s also sound fantastic with my small subs. a pair here
