you move two resistors inside an 8000a to separate the pre/ power sections.

I'd run the 8000A into the Linns with the 753 off the 8000P with both on at the same time.

But thats me.

The Quad 34 'Black' (like Mercedes) went for £205 so all the time head scratching and parts investment was worth it :)

The chap's replacing a tired 33 with it, worth a small part ex?

Got a few bits for sale here:

Sound Organisation 5 tier hifi rack, my dad threw away 3 of the shelves and replaced them with some home-made ones which are more substantial but look shit. - £10 collected.

Yamaha KX-393 cassette deck - £10 collected.

Audioquest speaker cables, fitted with plugs for bi-wired connection, but only very short, about 1.5m each I think. These cable were hella expensive when new. £10 + postage cost.

If anyone wants all 3 they can collect for £20! Here are some terrible out-of-focus pictures...

I read a NAIM brochure today which stated that cable (wire) is directional. I've always regarded NAIM as a company who build extremely well engineered, if a bit overpriced kit, but as far as I'm concerned, if NAIM really honestly expect me to believe that wire is directional (and aren't just stating it for marketing reasons - ie. audiophiles are deluded), they've lost any credibility in my view.

But this is superb...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BEST-valve-am ... 485a35e965

Apparently, their system is worth £120k (yes, a 3 bed detached house in some areas) because they have a crossover which directs bass to the loud bass speaker and treble to the smaller one! They must be working on the 'audiophiles are deluded' principle too.

I'm in the wrong job...
