  1. It certainly is, and the pictures don’t come close to doing it justice. I had the pleasure of auditioning Boon’s speakers when he still had his system intact. The TT performance is just sublime, the plinth is a work of art and gives the unit a commanding presence in any room. Cheers, Rohan.
  2. I had the pleasure of listening to this setup this evening, just before I walked out the door with the amp. After paying for it, of course?. Superb sound across multiple genres. The Zu’s are quite striking in appearance - they have a real presence. Buy with confidence - vendor is a thorough gentleman. Cheers, Rohan.
  3. Further information: Owned since new ~2001. Used sparingly, ie < 20 CDs were ever recorded. A superb quality player in its own right. Trouble-free and deserving of a place in a rack rather than in my cupboard. I am unable to locate the instruction manual. I don’t have the original packaging, so local pickup is preferred. A donation will be made to SNA if sold here.

  4. Further information: Owned since new ~2001. Unmarked and good working order. Spent the first half of their life as fronts in a 5.1 HT setup, then sparingly in a stereo system driven by Denon AVR 1801 also for sale on here. Original packaging long gone, so prefer local pickup. Donation to SNA will be made upon sale.

  5. Further information: Owned since new (2001), long consigned to stereo duties. Has been happily driving a pair of B&W 602 S2’s advertised separately. Never missed a beat and in good working order except for volume (-) on the remote.

  6. I had the pleasure of listening to Chie Ayado on this unit last week. Stunning!
  7. Hi Neil, I approached your challenge from the opposite direction, ie I already had the Elex R and was looking for speakers to match. I tested the MA Silver 200’s at Carlton AV and the pairing was impressive...much better than the (overly warm) Marantz PM8006 / MA combo that was already set up when I went in. The Elex R is essentially a beefed-up Brio with trickle-down tech from the Elicit. At 72 watts into 8 Ohms / 90 watts into 6 Ohms should be up to the job. Go talk to the people at Carlton AV and have a listen for yourself (no affiliation). Cheers,
  8. I have a first world problem. I am using Focal Clears out of a Schiit Asgard 3 headphone amp. The standard Focal cable is 3M long. My preferred listening position (ie my armchair) is ~4M from the amp, and thus out of reach. A 5M cable would solve the problem, but as best as I can determine, after-market headphone cables max out at 3M. I presume this is due to signal degradation. Anyone here have experience with longer cables? Should I invest in a custom-made 5M option, or would this reduce my listening experience to something akin to wireless Bluetooth. Not to mention o
