I've got some nice kit put aside for me ready for when I get the house finished.
They belong to a mate (fair few years older than me) who has owned them from new, but replaced them about 8 years ago with more modern stuff as he's moved on to cds and wanted things to integrate more easily with his 'home cinema' set-up.
The things sound amazing and I really should have picked them up off him by now before he changes his mind...
• Lecson AC1 pre-amp
• Quad 405 power-amp
• Linn Sondek LP12 with a diamond tipped Ortaphone cartridge
He made his own speakers BITD too, but these have past it TBH - too many years of abuse from kids and vacuum cleaners...
Will get some pics up of it soon, as it will probably be appreciated by a few on here by the sounds of things...
The Lecson is a collectors item
I would sell the Linn while they're still worth a lot, they wont hold their value for much longer (they were always overpriced.)
The 405 is a good start - pretty happy with most speakers. From the list, this is from the late '70's early '80's.
A good recent pre-amp and a decent CD player will get you sorted.
