    OK, it just rang a bell...sure fidelity used to use the Argyll name as well....used to love those old radiograms. often had decent valve amps in as well..and we used to fling them in the bin...doh!

    My missus has said she's worried shell come in one day to find me shagging a speaker or something, so they could be multipurpose ha ha!

    @Grant, that's a fair point mate.

    Have you ever dabbled in upgrading some of the smps units you've got there to linear versions? Relatively small outlay for some real benefits to the sound

    you can see my SMPS ??? ...now thats going some.....

    but to answer your question; yes, and no...I would probably like to but think the research and possibly cost might be beyond me....the Beresford dac would certainly benefit, as would the dino downstairs.....not sure if it is feasable to do summat about the laptop ps....I get some internal signal noise through the valve amp when the laptop is plugged in...something I dont get with solid state amps....it is coming through the m2tech dac line.. so am having to use the battery.it is not noticable when the music is on mind but now I know it is there, I am paranoid about it...lol
