Hi Andy. I saw that one. Brand new. Business seller. Bit wary TBH.

Anyone else suspicious?

Re: ATC SCM40 vs Focal 1028be

[quote="bigfish"] [quote="Dan1502"] It has the potential for a great listening room however the trouble is two people have already offered over £25K over asking price and over £10K over what I'd had in mind we wouldn't over - the market's gone daft here.  Fun and games! [/quote] World is mental...

Re: German hifi magazine in English

Apologies. Old age. I'm getting mixed up with reviews as I've been reading so many. I'm picking up the PS Audio PWT tomorrow. I'm getting the PS Audio DAC that's reviewed in the mag as soon as I can find one at a decent price. No way I'm paying full whack. I've found one at a good price but it's bac...
