    I liked the SBLs quite a lot.

    Is that a + or - for the wedding ring?

    The Little Dot CD Transport showed me that transports really do make a difference, and this one was so bad & slow to operate discs that I went back to using cheap, better sounding DVD players as transports.

    I would never buy a passive line stage for my amps again, they like active ones, and to be honest, I've always preferred getting my system balance right with an active in the mix (sorry Jez).

    To own again, maybe my STAX rig or Grado RS1 headphone setups, but I just didn't use them enough to justify it.

    I regret having a Nad 3020e amp for 30 years I didn't know what I was missing until Geoff recommended a Denon 350SE I now have two of them ! The sound stage is wide open so much more musical I know the Nad won countless awards etc but the Denon really is so much better and very well made indeed

    Never buy again: Sugden Masterclass integrated amp. It was a major downgrade, and I very soon got shot of it.

    Own again: Difficult to say, really. I know why I sold the things I did. Maybe my Music First passive pre, and buy a Quad 405 to go with it. That pairing sounded magical at the Bristol hifi show.

    I don't sell on my gear but am also not into box swapping other than turntables/phono stages which I accumulate. My house was burgled in the mid 90s and they got all my main boxes but did not take my LP12 or TT2 tables and HB1 speakers. I replaced the main boxes on a like for like basis and am still using them today. The lesser kit that went out the door included an Exposure X amp which I don't miss but it wasn't bad.

    I did trade in an Ittok for an Ekos which I regretted for a long time because I would have liked to try it on a couple of other tables including the TT2 but now have a Zeta on it and the regret has gone.
