    I'm thinking of upgrading, and I know Arcam do upgrade the crystals. But would I be better off buying a new dac?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Avondale offer £125 to buy Arcam Alpha 5 !

    Interesting they say their upgrade is comparable to Naim CDS3, " pay £2500 for a badge, then another £2500 to make it work properly " , wonder how Naim feel about that comment !


    Think I'll keep mine until it plays up then offer it to them as a non-working example, instead of chucking it in the bin. If they are still in business.
    Might have gone for their upgrade but too late for me I already bought the expensive badge ! :eek:

    Any good reports about their expertise, or are they smoke and mirrors guys ?
