    No, it was probably over 25 years ago - but some memories linger!
    I haven't a clue now what the rest of the system was.

    I have a similar problem like Jerry. Only difference, is that I'm more scaled- down

    Come on Jerry, you know you love it. I'd be in the same frame of mind but being in France has certain advantages.

    The price of 2nd hand gear is ludicrously expensive, generally.

    Well, I only have 4. 6 including preamps. 8 if you include a monoblock as being an amp

    I have only 11 poweramps:

    Mark Levinson ML-2 monoblocks
    Radford STA15 Mk.III (Mullard valves fitted)

    Quad 50E monoblocks
    Quad 303 (x2), one fitted with XLR connectors
    Quad 405, heavily modified
    Quad 405-2 lightly modified
    Quad 405-2 NET modified edition 3
    Quad 405-2 heavily modified and 'monoblocked' by Duncan (Tubehunter). This will be a recent acquisition (they're arriving tomorrow)!
    Quad 510 monoblocks
    Quad 520

    And 8 preamps:

    David Hafler DH101
    Sugden C51
    Quad 33 (unmodified)
    Quad 44
    Mark Levinson ML10A (used as a phonostage)
    Mark Levinson ML25 headamp
    Mark Levinson ML26
    Mark Levinson ML28 (in current use)

    Methinks I ought to thin down the inventory.
