    A new toy arrives

    This is the spinny thing that will accompany the amp and myself into the foreseeable future. Now seeking a tuner to fit the pile.

    Sounds great by the way.

    Cheers James!

    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

    That looks pretty sweet.
    The old pickup only ploy eh? Buggers me every time as I either don't have wheels or when I do they are attached to something naughty.

    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

    Quite true James san, I don't think paper walls are going to work though. The neighbours are sure to object ;-)

    I'm hoping to bump into a glass tv/av stand at some point when I've actually got cas on me. They usually go for as little as a score and would keep the simple lines going.

    Very nice and just the thing but the price is the same as I've paid in total for the two ingots I already have. As I mentioned, rocking horse doodoo with a price to reflect that.

    Yeah thats a ridiculous price. I'll keep an eye out, have seen them go for 50 a few times.
