Sadly due to an incompetent plumber, I have to move out of my house for three months while the place is dried out. Most of my kit is going into storage, but I'm running out of space. For this reason my retro hifi collection, starting the R-Rs. So if anyone is interested, I have some Revoxes, a G36, two A77s one high speed one low and a PR99 plus a second one that needs some work. If anyone is interested, let me know.

That sounds pretty bad Paul. Hope you get it sorted out soon. Good job the weather is warming and things stand a chance of drying out.

Sorry to hear that Paul, hope it gets sorted soon.

If you are willing to ship, and the price is right I have long had a hankering for a Revox G36

Thanks guys I'll sort out pic etc at the weekend all the kit is in dry storage. The contractors have admitted liability but it's still a total ball ache. To save one piece of copper pipe, he used the hot water tank expansion pipe to feed the shower. This caused a siphon from the system and 85k litres have leaked under the house. They are paying for the destroyed oak floor my electricity and water metre bills to. A holes of the first order.

Who, me or the plumber? :) Yep saving on 1.5 metres of 10mm copper pipe = 5.00, cost of new floor, hire of de humidifiers, accommodation, storage, power, drying channel dug round house and gravel filled, etc now running at circa 16,000.00 and rising daily, more like utter tosser.... :steam:

How longs piece of string Geoff :( Once we have found a place to rent and moved out of our place, They have to rip out the floor and put de-humidifiers in to run 24 hours a day, they say this could take three months, they then have to redecorate, and lay the replacement floor and move us back so 5-6 months, if I live that long :steam: :steam: :steam:

Best chance to sell them Paul was to put them in Private Exhibitions (would have got lost here), so I took the liberty of moving them.

Thanks Neil, you're probably right, I just thought the R2R thread was a good place to start :)
