    You must have amazing patience, Steve. I'd have been getting a full refund from them after six weeks, max!

    What on earth was the reason for that ridiculous delay?

    I have the patience of a saint lol. Up to a point. I had gone down the line of 'full refund' but as I had no receipt of purchase itemising all components the card company said I effectively had no contract.

    So I had a Turntable and Arm fitted with an Ortofon Quintet black cart. No receipts for any of these nor was there any serial numbers or packaging for the cart which I found very suss! The RCM arrived ok. The HR power supply was conspicuous in it's absence.

    Eventually I agreed to call it a day on delivery of missing items, full itemised receipts, cart packaging and serials as well as a little compensation for my trouble in the form of a credit note.

    I sent a workmate in with the credit note and he picked up a pair of Bluetooth Headphones for me.

    So at present I have all items and am happy with the sound.

    I have to say that Michell were polite, truthful and professional each time I called them and have kindly offered to deal directly with me in the future if necessary.
    Henley Designs were also very helpful in sorting me out with my worries re cart registration and warranty.

    The world is a smaller place these days and it is very easy to be a detective lol.

    I'm guessing the dealer had not paid his previous bill with Michell and they put him on stop?

    TBH I could care less about that particular dealer and doubt they'll last!

    I'm currently loving the setup though I now have a hankering for a go with a Sugden amp and possibly an upgrade from my current ProAcs .....it ever ends.

    No, it's good stuff. Some nice Romanian guys sold it to me from the back of a van.

    MCRU doesn't morally judge you, he just wants your money.

    Well, someone needs to stand up for audiophile mains cables.

    I likes them - and hear differences. Some differences are good, others are not to my taste.

    These days, though, I have ditched the more expensive stuff and have been happy for a couple of years or more now with Belden 19364 cables suitably terminated. Typically around £40 a shot.
