As usual in "retro-gaming" price has nothing to do with fun.
Yeah, I did think right after writing that that it was probably a stupid comment, on my part. Given the nature of the retro scene these days, someone was probably buying it just to stick on a shelf and complete their PAL NES set :lolno:

Re: exA-Arcadia

The most amusing part (given the price of that auction), is that the Japanese version is way better, anyway ;)

Re: YAJ Proxy Services - Head to Head!

They did this to me too (order was from China). They kept sending me warning letters about not paying the bill. I told them that I'd be happy to pay the bill, but 20% of £30 total is not £25. Took a month, but they finally calculated it correctly. I haven't paid yet, so maybe that should be my next...

Re: YAJ Proxy Services - Head to Head!

It’s not the import charges, it’s the handling fee I have issue with. If one of them allowed you to pay the import charges up front, that would be the perfect set imo. You can get around this if you select Fedex shipping. Fedex will waive the £12 handling fee if you use this template: http://blog.a...

Re: Roksan K2 Kandy Amplifier

Yeah, I'm really happy with my Arcam - just on the hunt for a new DAC now.

I've never auditioned a K2 myself, but it was the power that partly put it on my wishlist. The KEF's I have aren't the easiest to drive, and I've heard they pair really nicely with the K2 :)

Re: Roksan K2 Kandy Amplifier

Bummer, I was after one of these a few months back to pair with my KEF LS50s :( I ended up with an NOS Arcam FMJ-A29 instead.

I really don't know...I must admit, I haven't been following it especially closely :oops: But I couldn't see any mention of a physical release. Hopefully, there'll be one at some stage.

Re: You've Got Grail! The Valuation Thread

I'd say $1400 is pretty kerching for a Japanese Night Slashers, personally. Perhaps I got lucky, but I got a similarly pristine one last November for 88k yen. So, allowing for even a bit of inflation, I'd say $1000 is closer to being the price for a nice one :) I was always under the impression it's...

I'm no expert, but isn't this issue related to the super cap in the A board? Probably need to replace that.

You may feel differently with your Exa having been dropped off by Shou and heading out business class. That is fine.
