    Typical with vintage units......
    Recapping is easy to do for me and I listen to only one radio station so should be okay. :cool:

    I’m a big fm fan, and have owned many, everything from trio and Sansui to Cyrus and magnum dynalab.
    104 on radio 2 is excellent, but the new psx r2 makes fmx awesome, got psx r2 really cheap as last owner had just bought it in a old unpopular. shade of black. So I got brand new one for less than a 10 year old mk1. Bloody heavy, has lifted fmx into a different league, and I’ve always had soft spot for Cyrus.

    Nice little gadget. Love the red led numerals - reminds me of a 1979 Casio school calculator :)

    Truvox LS120 speakers.

    Know the company but never heard of the speakers before, but they were cute and impressively weighty, so I took a punt for 50p the pair! All Celestion drivers it turns out, including HF1300 tweeters.

    A Denon 2900 as cd transport . Works really well , is chunky and feels brand new. My old Revox is too unreliable

    pair of vintage Tannoy Cheviots as donors for a RFC Rutland build, sounding quite nice as they are :)

    Just moved into a new (to me) flat. Wanted to introduce myself to the neighbours gently so upgraded my headphone amp from Topping L30 to Topping A30pro. Excellent upgrade, more bass weight & definition & more detail & separation. Can listen for hours with my HD600s with no listening fatigue.
    Whilst researching the A30pro I also came across the D30pro DAC. Wasn't looking for another DAC but I was sufficiently intrigued by the fact it uses quad Cirrus Logic DAC chips rather than the ubiquitous ESS or AKMs that I've taken a punt. Early days yet but so far it does seem to have a sweet, organic quality to it.

    Quad Vena 2 to accompany some Quad 10L bookshelf speakers, making a compact and really decent sounding office setup to ease me through the working day.

    A new (to me) Hana ML with 80 hours on the clock. It's very nice.

    Finally didn’t work ! The seller forgot he sold this unit and it was no longer available. He suggested me a Kenwood digital tuner instead so I asked him a refund on my PayPal. Too bad !

    Some lovely almost mint Rega RS3s in piano black. I had these in Cherry, sold them 5 years ago and kept wanting them back and now happy as Larry - for now!
