    The reissue Ardens are just shy of £7K, don't know how they'd compare to the originals.

    They won't compare.

    The 'new' Arden uses a tulip waveguide driver. These are in my opinion, inferior to the Alnico magnet 'pepperpot' drivers.

    The nearest real equivalent to the 15" HPD Berkeley is the current Canterbury GR and they are a whopping twenty grand a pair!
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Off topic I know but what is this latest fad for living room rugs that look like bath mats from the 'Seventies? There was a red one the other day, and now this.
