    I know a lot of foreign people and they invariably end up asking why we're so obsessed with WWII and I have to admit I have no answer for it ..
    It was a pretty big deal, in fairness.

    Nice OTT reaction there.

    There is haggling/bartering and then there is the traditional "low ball" offer that always seems to offend.

    Your offer may be correct based on the UK market value, but there is a very lucrative high end HiFi market in Germany.

    If you think German prices for British gear are high, check out those from Japanese sellers. They are monstrous.
    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!

    Calling Japanese sellers monstrous isn't going to help this thread

    Oh, I have a sense of humour.
    What you originally wrote is just no longer funny in this day and age....
