    More loony pricing from Hart Audio.

    What looks like an i8 Tannoy driver (or derivative), matched to a few quid's worth of Chinese ABR's in a box. I don't see the 14k+ asking price there in value.

    Decca Mk.I FFSS tonearm with rather 'optimistic' pricing!

    I had a couple of perfectly serviceable ones and sold one a year or so back. It fetched 89 on ebay. (still got one though)

    I paid 30 for mine, complete with magnetic bias compensator and the (very) rare adaptor for Mk. V and VI cartridges . The item listed does have an aftermarket non-Decca lift/lower arm, which adds some value, but nowhere near enough to justify the asking price.

    I've seen Mk.I ffss arms complete with a Decca Mk.II cartridge and mounted on a Thorens 124 armboard going for the same amount.

    Maybe fifteen years ago, I sold a pair of FFSS arms and three Mk.I heads for around fifteen quid on ebay. There was no interest in them back then. Things have changed.

    Around 1980, I bought a beautiful sounding 4RC for a fiver. I used it for years!

    The 4RC is one of the pre Mk.V/VI Deccas that I have not heard. I do have an SC4E that I could modify with the RC network, but it's not something that is high on my "things to do" list.
