RE: Older Hi Fi items

So you've ended up with that gorgeous Leak amp & TT plus a pair of Tannoy 611s that I would have absolutely killed for 20 years ago when I could only afford the 607s, and you actually want to chop it all in for that BOSE Accousticrap?  Ugh doh!, why is it so often the case that free gear ends up in the wrong hands? Wish someone had given that kit to me!

Anyhow if you really are daft enough to want shot of that great-sounding kit in order to replace it with a lump of expensive designer-plastic which will sound infinitely worse, eBay is probably your best option. List the items separately as it's unlikely you'll get the best price as a job lot.

RE: Older Hi Fi items

I would love to keep the whole set up as i also have over 200 LP's from the 60's and 70's but i do not have the space for it hence why im looking for the best small unit that I can use.
