    After a few years with only the odd item appearing on eBay, there's been a rush of John Farlowe era Exposure amps recently. Plenty of VI and VII, the odd IV, even XI and XII. The Super XVIII Monos are one of the most highly rated and are as rare as hen's teeth. I had a single Super XVIII a few years ago and it was so nearly the end of the journey for me.

My guess is that if your mains did run at the published 230v "standard" it would be OK but the variation that you experience makes it a gamble. But I'm no expert so will await someone who is...

    getting a regenerator would allow 220v stuff to work safely as it outputs 230v, or the ones ive heard of do. other possible is a variac set up, which i have too.

    Lot of money to fork out for a development hack that clearly wasn't taken up as a product. Be interesting if they reappear having failed to sell as the amount they are at at the moment is about what you can sometimes pick up a pukka pair of Canterbury 15s for.
    Main: Speakers 'RFC' Tannoy Canterburys / custom crossovers with Tannoy ST50 supertweeters; Amp - Silvercore 833C monoblocks; preamp TBA watch this space; Vinyl: Schopper'd Thorens TD124 MkII + Ikeda IT345-CR1 9 inch and Ikeda IT-407 12 inch tonearms; Cartridges Stereo - Miyajima Madake, Miyajima Takumi, Ikeda 9TT, vintage Ortofon SPU GM and SPU Gold; Mono - Miyajimas - Zero 0.7, Premium 1.0, Miyajima/Edison '78' 4.0 conical, and Shure M44 strapped for mono with several Expert Stylus conicals for different eras of 78s; Phono stage Allnic H7000V used with Miyajima ETR-Mono and ETR-Stereo SUTs; Digital: Audio Note CDT2/II transport, heavily enhanced AN DAC based on kit but aspiring to DAC5 spec.

    Study: Speakers - Tannoy DC6; Amp: Marantz PM-4; Digital: CDP Sony CDP-X3000ES & Arcam rBlink; Vinyl: Garrard 401 with AT 1503 MkI broadcast arm, Ortofon SPU Classic GM, Ortofon 2-15k SUT and Puresound Tenuto platter mat

    I think you forgot to finish the sentence. More like "Bargain my arse!"
