    Due to a change in setup i'm selling my Arcam 550, it's in excellent condition with no marks and is in full working order. I have the box and all that came with the unit when bought from new. It was purchased from Nick at Hsound in January so it's roughly 6 month old.

    Price and currency: 2150
    Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
    Payment method: Bank transfer / Cash
    Location: Doncaster
    Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    Hi, I know it's less than your asking but I've seen them sell for less: assuming you have the original purchase receipt, I'd like to offer £1700? I'd have to arrange pick up. Thanks

    Fair enough, but I think that's probably my best offer. I only need it for the front end + Dirac, so I may end up going for the 390, which is apparently exactly the same pre/pro as the 550 (and 850) apart from the power supply. So, it's just a question of how much difference the power supply will make...Thanks anyway

    I spoke to Arcam regarding the exact same question when purchasing the 550 and was told there would be difference in the sound, hence the 550 purchase.

    Like I said, happy to work out a price with you.

    I'm sure there would be a difference between the frame and toroidal transformers, just how much is the big question. I'll sleep on it but I think I'm out at £1700.

    No sorry, £1700 is to low for what's on offer.

    No sorry,

    I would except £1800 but you would have to sort delivery/courier.

    That's £900 off a 6 month old unit and great deal.

    I take it at 1800. I can arrange shipping to Sweden by DHL myself or you can take care of it. I would prefer to pay by Paypal today.
