    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking Adrian. Six CD players in there, and I never play CDs anymore... Two cassette decks and two VHS players and don't own any tapes for either! And not had a surround system since 2002!

    A lot of it is junk really, but it is fairly pointless it just sitting in a garage not being used... Brings it into perspective when you see it all in one space!

    Well to me ignoring what each box is you have I think 20 (excluding speakers) and 2 TT's. So say each one is on average sells for £75 then that is quite a chunk to put to a bit of an upgrade for your existing system. I suspect you may get a a bit more for some of those items.

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes


    Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm, Benz Micro LP-S & Michel Cusis MC cartridge, Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable, LFD MMC special phono stage, Rothwell MCX SUT, RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi to Beresford Caiman SEG DAC, Sony 3d blu-Ray for CDs to Caiman SEG, ALLNIC T1500 MKII SET 300B amp, Tannoy Legacy Arden speakers and JBL L100 Century's , Chord Epic speaker leads, & signature links, the Eccose Conductor CA1 cd to pre, I think I am at audio nirvana, but don’t tell anyone
