Secondhand ?
English

Currently I have a Marantz 6000 Ose which I paid £40 for would a 1st generation Exposure 2010 at £80 be a worthwhile improvement? Rest of system rotel rc850 and 2 rb850 in mono bloc with mission 752 (not freedom)

RE: Secondhand ?

Gut feel says yes. And the price seems reasonable, so why not buy it and if it doesn't work out just sell it on - I doubt you'd lose on it.

RE: Secondhand ?

That was also my gut feeling also, although I seem to be acquiring a few things which I need to redistribute !

RE: Secondhand ?

Definitely worth taking a risk on I'd say.  I'm sure you wouldn't lose much if you sold it on afterwards.  Second hand does get you a lot more for your money.

RE: Secondhand ?

Second hand certainly does have benefits, being in the ring place at the right time is a bii of luck, came by some Epos ES11 £50 just got dedicated stands on EBay £11.50 (Exposure 2010, Rotel RC850, Rotel RB mono blocs, Mission 752's main listening / Marantz 6000 OSE, PM40SE, Epos ES11 second system) Less than £450 spent so far ..... Any advice on a weak link? I am thinking maybe better speaker cables and interconnects may be useful.
