Not a Bake-off but we don't have one for shows. Hi-Fi and electronics jumble sale, I went today, didn't buy anything but sold my Rek-O-Kut. Audio Gold bought a van full of stuff to take back to the shop and triple the price of :x

Just looked at the price list for Audio Gold and spotted an Exposure 10 for sale.

I once had an Exposure 10 which I bought new in the late 80s or early 90s. I think I paid around the same for new, what Audio Gold are asking for a 2nd hand item which is 25 years old or more :o . I'ts hardly a collectable item like Lecson for instance. (Reminds me a of a well known company in Cumbria :mrgreen)

The Exposure 10 was a very good amp though, if rather bass shy (with ES14s) and for this reason I swapped it for an Inca Tech Claymore, which I preferred. I remember HiFi magazines at the time recommended both amplifiers as a minimum requirement for EPOS ES14s.

Inca Tech also made a very good gold-plated mains extension block, which I remember took some time to be delivered. I telephoned the company only to be greeted with: 'Raving Loonies!' I think the poor fellow (obviously very stressed) did not realise I was a customer at first! Anyway, I received a profuse apology and thought the whole episode hilarious!

Audio Gold are shockingly expensive! They run their shop in North London. I've been there 4 times in the past. Nice enough shop, but way too overpriced!

I'd rather spend my money buying from places like Hi-Fi Hangar for example.
