    Yes, some interesting bits and some tat.

    The Richard Allen Class A amp is really a Sugden under the skin and quite rare. The Teac A-450 cassette dack was a beast and a competitor to the Nakamichi stuff, it also is rare now. The Larson Pyramid speakers were well liked in their day, same drivers as the Dynaco A25 I believe.

    The only item I'd really like is the grey Leak Stereo 20.

    So do I! They really are rara aves.

    Also there is quite a lot of interesting test gear up for auction - some of it I used to use myself when I was working!
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    It's the completely dismantled set of Wharfedale Diamonds that gets me. I mean what exactly was occurring there?

    'Hmm... I'm bored and have a few hours to pass, I think I'll spend them reducing these speakers to their constituent parts. Then when I've done that I think I'll nip out and buy some more Leak amplifiers and test gear.'
