    Overall height?

    107 cm including spikes and top shelf.

    Clearly you could change that a couple of centimetres each way by adjusting the spikes.

    bottom shelves also ideal fits for two naim nap 500

    Right, just to get things going, I will offer £100 - this is way below its value and I expect and hope to be outbid very quickly.

    Can you give me the dimensions of the unit (width x depth) please and would you be accepting of a man in a van style pickup?

    A search of the inter webs gives 19.5 x 15.5 of your post brexit inches. I’ll double check this evening, but that sounds about right.

    I’m happy to have it collected any way you like.
  9. Swamp Thing

    Right. In hideous EU centimetres (TAKE BACK CONTROL YOU TRAITORS!)

    40 cm deep x 50 cm wide at the widest i.e. the corners with the uprights
    39.5 cm x 49.5 cm along the rest of the rack
    36.5 cm x 44.5 cm of usable glass surface + a couple of mm of rounded edge

    The auction is hotting up. RaphaelSamad in the lead. Are we waiting for a last minute war of bidding on Sunday? The tension mounts.

    Pity, that i'm in Germany and you prefer not ship

    Marchbanks Golly, do I ever have a lot of soul!

    Would the top shelf be compatible with both a bowl of petunias (incorporating substantial earth) and a directly-coupled tankard in the shape of Sylvester the Cat?
  13. Swamp Thing

    When John Watson designed the Mana racks he ensured that they would be compatible with both Grandiflora and Multiflora petunias. At whatever stage of reincarnation. Along with olive Naim boxes and some kind of "fruit box" (???) made by Linn.

    Sylevester tankards are no issue. This particular rack has supported a Marvin Martian tankard on any number of occasions.

    (Not suitable for spontaneous creation of Sperm Whales in the ionosphere)

    Marchbanks Golly, do I ever have a lot of soul!

    Oddly, I was introduced to Marvin the Martian for the very first time only last week at the house of another pfm luminary. I was rather perplexed to find a member of the Looney Tunes roster had somehow flown under my radar for 60 years. The coincidence is obviously meaningful, so I bid £200.

    Got the ref. BTW, just in case you had the sinking feeling you were merely casting pearls before swine.

    I believe I have met that very Marvin Martin of which you speak.

    Bidding now at £200.

    Good on you!

    The game is afoot!

    (Oh no, not again)

    Just checking... if I win, do I get a free album of my choice from the rack behind?

    Mmmmm... I've goy a best of Toyah CD you are welcome to.
  18. Swamp Thing

    <gabbly gabbly gabbly auctioneer speak> ...any advance on £200?
  19. Marchbanks

    Marchbanks Golly, do I ever have a lot of soul!

    The inclusion of 'Best of Toyah' has upped the ante dramatically. I imagine all King Crimson completists have gone off to recalculate their bids. My index finger is poised, but I'm not going to bid against myself...

    No more bids? It's a mystery...
