    Default Sellers with rose tinted specs

    I guess we have all seen examples of sellers who are deluded/mistaken about the condition of the gear they are trying to sell.

    Here is my current favourite. The condition is described as “v good CONDITION -just minor splitting of the wood” Its a 5000 amplifier.

    SW1X Universal Music Server UMS I Signature with Power Supply Unit PSU I Signature
    SW1X USB I Signature
    SW1X DAC III Special
    SW1X Open Baffle Speakers containing both vintage and modern alnico drivers and paper cones. All silver wired and crossover-less where possible - 4" vintage Siemens Klangfilm tweeters, 8" SEAS exotic W8 midrange drivers and vintage 15" Altec VOTT 416 bass drivers
    DRD 45 single ended, 45 triode, monoblocks,
    Silver mains cables, interconnects and speaker cables by SW1X

    Cracks encourage ecological diversity, why should a wildlife friendly designer's vision be realised cheaply?

    Probably caused by too much heat - either not enough rear ventilation or a nearby radiator.

    Looks like an Italian job. Tektron?
