    Three years ago I paid £120 for a secondhand one. I hope this helps.

    Not a bad player to keep and can be improved with a bit of work

    http://www.users.zetnet.co.uk/avondale/ and scroll down to Arcam modification, interesting. £375.00 gets you a machine that plays in the big boys park. I have witnessed Avondale modded machines at HiFi shows, one being the very first Philips machine and it was amazing.

    The 5 uses the same chip and transport as the Naim CD3 player. The TDA 1541A crown dac, do a search......... :smashin:

    If you want to sell, they will take your machine of your hands (provided its mint) for £125.00

    I want one so I can get it "Avondaled" The idea of no upgrading my source appeals to me as much as the improvement on the sound quality does:D
