    Its' a real bargain Eddie. I'm listening to a Marillion comp CD and have fallen in love with Neverland from the Marbles album. I'm going to enjoy this current setup.

    The 590ES was collected on Monday, midday and was delivered to a Berlin address today. Good going that.

    I've added a UDR-F88 tape deck to my Denon F88 system. It has horizontal loading and auto reverse, which are both new features to me. It works fine and hasn't had much use.

    This was an expensive system when new. I just need the UCD-F88 CD player now so if anyone sees one let me know please.

    Someone has offered me a 'F88' Mini Disc player but it wasn't part of the four unit set. The manual only contains the four units, not a mini disc player.

    The minidisc player may have been a later addition, if you have minidiscs then why not? was it expensive?

    I've never owned a mini disc but a matching player is tempting. The seller is going to send me pics on tuesday.

    Many thanks to Henry for sorting out the cd player here in this complete stack. It was occasionally reading discs and when it did, it would stop playing mid-track, so I bought a new laser assembly for it but Henry found that part wasn't causing the fault. It was simply the transport mechanism that needed a clean and some lubrication. It's now reading all discs perfectly and sounds very decent too.

    At the speaker end is a pair of Tannoy F1 Custom blutacked to a shelf.

    The system is all connected as per the manual now so the remote operates all units and I am looking forward to having a choice of three formats to listen to while I do some work in the small bedroom/studio.

    It won't be from this range - the F88. There is a matching MD player available, as mentioned in a previous post.

    Managed to bag another one of these. Hopefully this one will read discs.

    Don't know why but I've got a speaker itch. There's nothing wrong with the set up I have.

    I don't really know but I keep watching really old Technics linear phase boxes from the late 70s/early 80s. There's a pair of SB-R3 local to me right now. I hardly switch on the sub these days as the Concept 20s are fine on their own but maybe I crave a fuller range without a sub?

    The Denon UCD-F88 reads discs fine so that's a relief. Funny how the front panel shows signs of wear yet the unit that only reads discs when it's in a good mood, looks brand new. I guess they could be swapped over but that's tempting fate.

    It will be easy enough to do. I purchased a second Teac transport as a donor for that very reason.

    Hi Henry, I'm going to leave things as they are. I'll probably put the other one on ebay as spares or repair. It did work the once after you cleaned it but the next time it would sometimes read a disc and play the first track, then judder and skip through the next track before giving up.

    These arrived today - Denon SC-E313SE. The standard version was designed to go with one of Denon's better quality mini systems. I don't know how this SE version differs. They are large standmounts measuring 357 x 224 x 215mm. I think they were made for Denon by JPW as there are styling similarities. JPW and Mission made speakers for Denon. They have a 6.5" Peerless bass/mid driver and possibly an Audax tweeter. There isn't a manufacturer's name on the rear of the tweeter. The Peerless driver was used in several award-winning speakers.

    For the time being they have made my sub redundant. The dust caps were pushed in but I managed to rectify them with sticky carpet tape. Normal sellotape wasn't sticky enough because the dust caps are quite thick and of a good quality. They have a real wood veneer which has cleaned up well. The grilles are a grey cloth on a heavy wooden frame and are in excellent condition.

    Someone had got candle wax down the back of one speaker. Well I hope it was candle wax and not a bodily fluid! It left a smeary mess behind which took a while to remove completely. They are rear ported and have single binding posts, which I prefer.

    These must have slipped under the radar because they sound amazing. I've only listened to a few tracks but early thoughts are I'm going to enjoy these. They have a measured response of 35Hz to 30kHz and are 6 ohm nominal. Other specs - 88dB, 5.5 kg each

    Having great fun with speakers bought for beer money. I now have the JPW mini monitors blu-tacked on top of the Denons and using the amp's A/B speaker outputs I can swap between the two in an instant. The little JPWs are a true gem and will not annoy the neighbours.

    A pair of Sonata I have with matching serial numbers - I weighed one speaker and it's 4.1 kg; the other is 4.4 kg. Prison workers eh?
