  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.

[FS] Arcam Alpha 8R & 8P

    Both working fine, have got the remote for the 8R somewhere (only does volume and mute, which actually just puts it into standby). Both in nice condition and only the usual small marks. Power cables, non foo, also included.

    Prices are all over the place for these, the 8R seems to go for between £100 and £150, and the 8P between £120- 200, so:

    8R - £125
    8P - £150
    Both - £250

    Willing to post at cost (probably about a tenner each) but will have to find suitable boxes. Obvs pick up or taxi is welcome. Located in glorious Wigan.

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    My first proper amplifier the 8R, excellent bit of kit and worth every penny of your asking price... it’s still in the family 20 years on, I’m listening to it right now through a pair of Wharfedale Diamonds in my parent’s (home) bar!

    Lots of love for these lovely amps, but they’re languishing on the shelf of despair, won’t someone please give them a new life? All they want to do is pump music out to you, and they’re so, so sad because they can’t fulfill their mission in life...

    And I found the remote for the 8R, I’ll put new batteries in it and post a picture of it, probably with a cat, tomorrow.

    I already gave mine to my parents and an Alpha 9 to my cousin... and I have another four unused amps at home. Happy to endorse them though, they’re lovely sounding amps, warm but NOT soft like some people make out. The guy looking for a £100-£200 amp earlier should snap the 8R up!

    That would be fine. I need to sort out some packaging so I’ll PM you when I’ve managed to find something suitable.
