    Niiice ! If you want to go the whole hog I notice there's currently a champagne gold Denon TU-260L on eBay... Only a fiver at the moment.

    Sorry about City-Link [who shall henceforth be known as Sh*tty-Stink] I can't believe their incompetence

    Nice one Andrew - so great to see a pure, uncluttered set-up. Something rather special about a Champagne Sony too, sadly my ES is all black (still sounds more than acceptable though )

    Beautifully simple and elegant Andrew, has got me wondering whether I really need all the gear I own seeing as 90% of my listening is done via Spotify or lossless CD rips...

    Cheers, I do like a compliment! After nearly ten years in the motor trade I've just been told I don't have solid experience!

    Keeping my eyes open for something suitable, stylish and cheap to stand the gear on now.

    That may be it for a while as matching tuners are both rocking horse poop and pricey.

    I have a j2p lead for dab/mp3 type duties and just whack it into my phone as required.

    As far as a rack is concerned this might fit the bill. The seller says there are signs of wear but this doesn't seem too apparent from the photos. Pick up only from South Croydon though

    Might look a bit garish with the gold components though... Black stands tend to look better IMO.

    Of course, in their country of origin how you've got them would be 100% correct
