    Certainly his stuff moves rather slowly ...many years ago - I think about 7-8 years ago - I made what I thought was a very fair offer on a pair of Pamphonic 2001 KT66 monoblocks. Not only are they still there, the price is exactly the same as it was back then (which I would posit tells us something about whether £2800 is the right price or not!).

    Unless he paid stupid money for them (unlikely I would think) surely turnover in stock is more important in business than having stuff sitting around waiting for a mug prepared to pay top whack and then some?

    Some ebay Hi-Fi traders are, as Shane suggests, idiots. I recently had an inexcusable experience with 'planethifidotcodotuk' as he calls himself. I shall elaborate on a dedicated thread later once I've compiled the data.

    No, but I'm led to believe there may be some Dalek in the family bloodline.

    I've never actually owned a PLC-590 myself but Noel Keywood had two that we used as workhorses during my time at Hi-Fi World. Fine decks!

    Tannoy DC200 speakers. Don't be tempted. They are the worst dual concentrics I've heard.
