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.

    Cherry veneer with metal bases. I bought these a couple of years back from another pfmer. They have a few small knocks here and there, but for £650 they are AFAIK at the peak of the value vs performance curve. They have been edged out of my system by a pair of Avalon Avatars that cost me £1100 more. The midrange of the Ruarks may even be better than the Avalons.

    PM for pics

    Hi there!
    I currently own a pair of Talisman II and might be interested in upgrade them.
    Would you mind sending some pics (Ironmark2010 at

    eventually, could you ship to Italy?

    Shipping could be a problem as no boxes and they are very heavy.

    Up again. Had these back in my system last night, they really are a crazy bargain. Midrange is just wonderful

    Yes they are great. And quality construction too. I had a pair and lost them. Yes 'how?' is the obvious question!

    Hi Dan

    Sorry to sidetrack this sightly but ....

    I have crusader 2s with naim amps which I really like

    My friend had Avalon Avatars with Karan amplification and I really really liked this combination.

    What amplification are you using with your Avalons? (And do they gel with Naim???)

    Might be the same Avalons, which TBH are not much 'better' than the Crusaders.

    Crusaders still offered for sale

    Sold mine a few years back and bitterly regretted it. On the look out for a pair but I am many miles away and do not want to pop Alan to the post here. Glws.

    Hello Dan, thanks for reply. I'll buy them off you, had a pair not so long ago and sold them to help fund buying a motorcycle- big mistake ! I am near Lancaster, will have to think about how to get them up here, may be able to come down and collect..
    All the best
