...an audio company that can hold it's head high for being honest in naming it's range the "(N)o (R)eal (G)ains" series....don't laugh Alleycat,Dean's called me thrice and wanted me to ask if you would consider a partial trade for his wife,plus he'll throw in some cash of course!

Andre, this is not my cable up for sale. I have agreed a special price (cheaper!) for Dean and holding it till he is ready.

Rupert, you are sooooo funny! :whistler:

DionWired is selling the NAD T557 BD player for R1500.
Upgrading is just as certain as death and taxes.

Somewhere in Bloem there's an old lady with this amp and the matching cd transport, connected to some big-ass pioneer speakers(nice ebony or some such veneer). She prefers to use the old silver pioneer setup to listen to rsg. lol

Except it is not class A but B, hence it is the B1 and not the A1. IMO price on the optimistic side. IMO no better then some of those arcam 8 amps that sold here for ar1k5 a few days ago.

I've had both, and this is cheap rubbish. The A-series are weird but very nice, worth about R1.5k. Look inside this thing and you will see Tedelex-quality components. Awful. Nowhere near the Arcams. :puke:
