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.

    I've bought some Quad gear from them, no problems and they didn't quibble about a refund on a non-functioning Quad CD player that I bought from them.

    Got some interesting gear on there. Could set up a nice vintage system for little outlay. Thanks for the heads up.

    10 doors down from my former accountant - not a lot of help really.

    I don`t think they`ve been there many years although they may be the same people I contacted once in nearby Old Coulsdon, about a Leevers Rich 16mm film recorder - if so they didn`t seem to know what they`d got.

    I've ended up several times on their website, but never bought anything because it's all priced at a bit of a premium.

    What kind of warranty do they have?

    I know the guys there and have used them for a number of things both bought and sold.

    Totally fair and decent. I’m in Old Coulsdon just down the round from them. Not an easy shop to spot if you don’t know they’re there

    I got a cd player from them once; very pleased and still using it. They were very prompt and were happy to discuss matters over the phone. Also, I am not far from them so they delivered it to me which was very convenient.

    I have bought drive units from them, with no problems.
    Realistically priced, well packed and fast delivery.

    I had a Kenwood 3020SE off them a few years ago. Looked hardly used and fairly priced. Fast delivery, amp was double boxed. Have upgraded since, but the Kenwood was working fine when I last played it a few months ago.

    I've purchased several Quad items from them in the past, and last year an RCD965 BX Discrete.
    They have always been straightforward to deal with and the items have always been well packed.

    Bought my Quad 405-2 from them last year. It works very well. Very nice chap that I dealt with. The amp was posted to me and the packaging was excellent.
