1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Perhaps the seller has been told by the significant other to get rid of some stuff....

    This fulfils the brief to keep the partner happy, whilst reveling in your cleverness and getting to keep your kit.

    All explained by the simple fact that the seller is based in St Helens.

    Could it be that the original owner of the amp has recently passed away and family are trying to sell off the hi fi ? My family wouldn’t have a clue about the value or knowledge of various amps etc around my house. Perhaps I should start making a list ?
