    Would like to hear one, could be a bit marmite like the well-tempered I suspect. Seems a lot of money for what it is ... you could have a jolly nice Garrard 401 or even at TD124 plus an FR64S for that sort of cash.

    I agree. it probably is overpriced, but the Continuo are offered for sale so infrequently, there is no real quide as to its worth.

    I've only heard one once, at a dealer in the Kingston area, who's name escapes me, but I was impressed.

    Could be up for a demo by the sound of it, although he s taking a bit of an abrasive attitude on that !. Probably the shop by the bridge Geoff, hi fi infidelity ?
    been there myself many years ago. Morch t/arm will raise a few eyebrows as well of course

    More lunacy. Another pair of Goodmans Maxims. These are bid up to 403! Why? It's just a crummy little pair of ancient bookshelf speakers. They really are nothing special at all.

    This is more like it. Denon PMA-350SE at 50, no bids and ending very shortly. Best fifty quid's worth you'll find. Great sounding amp and punchy too.

    I had one of these for many years, partnering an LP12 and my very first (Denon) CD player, into Tannoys. Very musical.
