Again, I always assumed those 'winning' bidders who defaulted would be reported by the sellers and their bidding rights would then be withdrawn.
    You can only withdraw a bid BEFORE the auction ends, it has been this way for years, so no it's not a new thing, one the auction ends and you have the highest bid you CAN'T withdraw it, I thought you were talking about prior to auction end

    The bid that was withdrawn on the Matisse Pre Amp was done BEFORE the auction ended.

    If anyone offers a next highest bidder deal then they might have more than 1 of the same item, OR they had a mate shill bidding to boost the price and it backfired because they 'won' it.

    It's cheaper to shill the bids than put a reserve on an item

    The Ascot tends to be 'below the radar' as far as Tannoys go, but actually sounds pretty damn good. It has the real 'pepperpot' DC magic.

    Yes. I've got a pair!
    Ending in a minute. 398 at the moment. May get more bids. Has to be a record for these. I normally expect them to go at around 200. Tannoy stuff is going loopy these days.

    Not sure if it's much of a bargain but may be of interest to folk here, it's in Edinburgh:

    Thought by some to be the Holy Grail of direct drive TTs. The asking price is more or less typical for a "BBC" EMT 950.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Old EMI speakers. Model 350 units in boxes at a ludicrous 400!! Take a zero off the price and you'd be about right.
