Don’t want to hijack this thread but as a sidestep, what is a decent price for a used SCDR? There is now a 2013 one for sale here for € 4000 asking price,about £ 3400. I am interested but looks a bit steep to me.
It seems expensive . New it costs 5700 euros. As it’s from 2013, the good price should be 2800 approximately.
If serviced one year ago, 3500 max.
That sounds high. I have two 2018 Supercap DR (i.e. 5 yrs newer). One I paid about $4500 but it was almost brand new and barely used. Another I paid close to $5k but it included Burndy and HiLine DIN4 cables I needed for my Superline. New they are $7500 in the U.S.
You are the lucky star mate !
My demo one ex Hong Kong dealer at £3700 with 2 years warranty
Thx guys. These prices sound more reasonable. I made an offer more in line with the what you guys mentioned. I’ll wait for the response. Again thx, and back to the original subject of the thread.
When the SC is deployed with a Superline how much of it (the SC) is used?
Supercap will bring more and if you feel the need for upgrade the 252 will not disappoint you. Go for it.
No doubt others know - the fact that a Burndy is used suggests a significant number…
Just the right amount Lindsay, i.e. all of it, and unfortunately you will hear the difference too over a Hicap…
Prepare to be severely tempted.
Best regards, BF
hi, I had a similar system except I had a 250 at that time. The move from Hicap to Supercap is a big step forward. It will also set you up very well for the inevitable move to a 252.
ScDr 2.5k to 3k for an earlier one.
I’d be thinking about a source with 555 somewhere in the name before preamp upgrades, considering the way your system is heading. Assuming that’s your next plan?
Next target piece 252
Likely will draw a line !
Enjoy your music mate
chance to grab a set of 2013 (252/supercap non-dr) at £6200 early May however, a bit wishy washy and it gone !
Do you have Fraim or something else?
Yes I am using Naim fraim
What’s in your mind mate ?
Just that it’s overdue if you weren’t already using it.
