signing in with my cousin's sp16l preamp which i helped him source here in sg and presently in my care while he's away... i might end up owning it as he's now chasing a used ls26 or ls27 (for balanced connections)

arc boxes are so sexy, especially those rack/grab handles hehe

If in SG, I think Audioline in Yishun Central is selling a used LS26 for S$4500.
We just listened to an SP16L last week matched w/ an EMO XPR1, the Cremona Auditor sounded so good.

are you in sg bro? i asked audioline about that ls26 just the other day, too expensive for me hehe. the sp16/sp17/ls16/ls17se are more attainable for me... did you get your ls17se brand new? care sharing the damage?

i saw a used ls17se in xp awhile back, should have pounced on it

I'm from Manila, but will be in SG by end of this month.
I'm trying to source out some pre-loved ARCs and have it hand-carried sana on my way back to lessen the damage.
But decided to cut to the chase and buy what I really wanted.

You mean that LS17se that was sold last January? Yep, missed that one too :D
Sent you PM.

grats bro! so what's on your shopping list for this upcoming trip now that you've secured the ls17se? :-D

yeah, the same one. hehe, i hesitated that time and when i looked it up again after a week or so, already sold. :-( anyway, i asked the seller how much he got the ls17se and subsequently, the ref 5 se and it seems like you got a very very good great bargain from sensible.

Thanks! Not sure yet, wala na yata ako budget naubos na pang-cables na lang. :D
Was surprised about the price bro, Marantz na lang yata ang mura dyan.
