March 2011 Newsletter – Roksan, Pro-ject plus Bargains!

We’re having a clear out this month – read on for the bargains…

But first…

Roksan K2 Deal

Roksan have won more awards than we’ve had hot dinners when it comes to their K2 range of amplifier, cd player and speakers. Peaking at £900 per item, these are now available at £750 per item, making them even more special. We’ve taken it one step further than that so, if you’re in the market for 2 of these items (eg amp and cd player, cd player and speakers), we’re doing them for £1400 for the pair, saving you another £100. No wait, there’s more!! Have all 3 (amp, cd player and speakers) and they can be in your home (UK shipping is free) for £1999 (saving £251!!). The hotline is now open on this but be quick!


(offer applies to Roksan K2 amplifier, K2 cd player, K2 speakers only and for a limited time at our discretion).

Pro-ject Turntable Deals

Yes, more deals this month and it’s Pro-ject turntables and arms, together with superb Ortofon cartridges.

The Project Xperience X Pack includes the Project Xperience Acrylic turntable, Ortofon Rondo Red cartridge and a Project Speed box. The cost of buying these products individually would be £1275 but it is available as the X Pack for just £1050.

The Xperience 2 Pack consists of an acrylic Xperience with the Ortofon 2M Blue. At £775, you’re saving £155 against buying the items separately or, put another way, it’s like getting the 2M Blue for free.

Both the above mentioned packs come with the Project 9c tone arm which is included in the package. This alone has a price of £310 if bought individually so what a saving!

The final pack is the Xperience V Pack which includes the Xperience in acrylic, Ortofon Vivo Blue and the Project Evolution tone-arm. The individual cost of these items would be £1820 but this is available as the V Pack for £1000 so represents the best value of the lot. Wow!

Clearance Items

Spring cleaning time! We have collected a lot of demo kit, a few customer returns, the odd part ex etc. These tend to loiter about and don’t get advertised to the general public. However, there are bargains to be had, which is why it’s a good idea to sign up to this newsletter. If there’s anything here of interest, call asap to secure. Once it’s gone, it’s..well you get the idea.

Gershman X Cube (rrp £4700). Dem units, hardly used but about 3/4 years old. Gathering dust, which is a shame. Couple of nicks. In mahogany. Think of those Wilson Puppy type speakers and you’ll know these are big, big speakers. £2500 worth of 2 way speaker sits on £2200 worth of subwoofer beneath. Just £1995. Collection by sturdy men preferred. Inc boxes. Add £100 if you want them shipping.

Plinius CD101 CD player inc remote, box, instructions etc. (rrp £4100). Excellent condition in black finish. Our dem model. £2995.

SRM-Tech Arezzo Ultra turntable, inc Shelter 201 MM cartridge, Moth MkIII (OEM Rega RB301) arm with tungsten counterweight (rrp £2100ish). Our dem. The Ultra comes with the mega cover, isolation platform, power supply upgrade and kinetic (flywheel/pulley) upgrade. Excellent all round condition and sounds fab. Yours for £1500.

SRM-Tech Arezzo Basic turntable, inc Audio Technica AT95E MM cartridge and Moth MkI (OEM Rega RB251) tonearm (rrp £900ish). You still get the fantastic Arezzo but miss out on the power supply and kinetic upgrades (you can upgrade later of course). Great timing, rock solid performer. Pristine, £650.

Townshend Rock 7 turntable with trough, inc Benz Micro MC cartridge, Moth MkIII (OEM Rega RB301) arm with Incognito rewire and tungsten counterweight (rrp £2300ish). What a deck! What looks, strange but effective air bellows suspension system, heavyweight platter and the famous Townshend trough full of silicone fluid to act as a damper at the cartridge end. Oops, bit of fluid spilled on the body – my fault, nothing terminal. Otherwise excellent. £1500 only.

Firestone Audio Cute Beyond Class A Headphone amp. (rrp £195). Customer return, immaculate, inc box. £149

Firestone Audio Supplier Power Supply (rrp £118). Customer return, immaculate, inc box. £75.

Firestone Audio Spitfire MkI DAC. Note this does NOT have the USB input that features on the MkII. If you don’t need it, it’s otherwise exactly the same. MkII versions are now £259 but we have a number of MkIs here at £199. 5 stars in What Hi-Fi?

Lehmann Black Cube Linear Headphone amplifier in black finish (rrp £750). Customer return and immaculate with box, instructions etc. We let a customer try this for a fortnight. He did, then safely put it back in the box and returned it. V little use. £595.

Creek OBH21 Headphone amplifier (rrp £239). P/ex from a trusted source. Great condition, silver front. Includes power supply, box etc. £125 only.

Creek Destiny 2 Integrated amplifier in silver (rrp £1595). Our dem and what an amp. Active and passive pre amp sections, AV input, excellent headphone amp, full remote, can be used as integrated, pre or power amp, 100+w per channel. Very detailed, controlled, powerful. It’s only here cos we figure everything must go! Boxed, instructions, as new. £1295.

That’s all folks! Remember, if you’d like something here, get in touch fast. Don’t wait to ask the wife, just do it. You can always tell her later. Or not.
