    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 II
    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" Supravox 215 RTF64 vintage midrange drivers and vintage 15" Altec VOTT 416 bass drivers
    Hi fi Collective twin mono ladder stepped attenuator, with Charcroft Z-foil and silver wired.
    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?
