    Yes it is but I am so please Molly asked me to do this, thus in my tiny small way I can help the family of the man that helped me get though a crap time a few years ago. I was going to see him the morning he left us. (BUGGER)

    Colin, I sent James my valve dac to borrow just a couple of weeks ago. Doesn't have a top on it, but it is the prototype of the Longdog Audio dac, and it's seen off many a dac over the last few years. Please sell it and give James' family the money.

    I'd say a fair price would be around £400 or so.

    It has a valve output stage with Bud Purvine transformers, which are not cheap!
    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?

    Perhaps we could extend this further, maybe if anyone has unwanted gear that could be sold to add to the pot?

    I dont know if its possible but is there a way to "retire" the user name - Sovereign ? Wouldn't be nice to have someone sign up under his tag.
