Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#4154

I think I’ve got a pair of those and the MS10 (?) i’s in the loft.


#4155

we use a tiny pair of ms aviano 1 in our dining room and they are not bad at all


#4156

40 years young, weighs 12lbs and operates beautifully with silent controls. It started a classic look for Audio Research preamps which lasted until recently but as a solid state piece was quite notorious. I’ll just say I’ve been listening to it for four hours now and I don’t want to turn it off… and I don’t have to!


#4157

I think they’re great speakers - just missed out on a pair myself so bought a pair of B&W DM110i’s for the princely sum of £25 and love 'em. :+1:


#4158

So, whose Perreaux is going to turn up first today? Place your bets.

They haven’t even got my old amps yet. New 225i won’t be in post until mid week.
I’ve got holes at home…


#4162

You could always buy a pair of vintage and class A Marantz monoblocks to tide you over until then :slightly_smiling_face:


#4163

Need to sell first :smirk:

Need revyuzzzz


#4164

You could try my Stello - as in this review


I might even be persuaded to sell it


#4165

Disaster mate, don’t do it, it sounds terrible :confounded:


#4166

:pray:t2:

:confused: or :hugs:

Don’t mess with me. It’s not a done deal yet. My amps are still at home and they are coming by five


#4167

Hah I’m just kidding mate :joy:

Diffferent presentation to the class A Marantz so still trying to get my head around it.

You can output straight from the preamp stage so I’ll do a comparison later with it plugged into the MA-5s

Initial impressions, very low noise and clear sound, tight bass grip. Maybe give away a little in overall dynamics and vocals to the MA-5s but I’ll need to do a proper comparison.


#4168

All amplifiers sound the same.


#4169

So many words.

So few pictures.


#4170

But is it any good or not.

That’s what the world is waiting for.

(Well, maybe me and one or two causal observers)


#4171


#4172

Surprised there is room for it with all that vinyl you’ve been buying
