    Hi Gang,
    My AV9 has died for second time in a year, so i think im going to move on - as a result, i'm on the immediate lookout for an AV888...

    Would prefer silver, but frankly it doesnt matter.

    If anyone has one in good working order and can move quickly, please let me know !
    Cheers,
    Kev

    Hi mate
    I have a Audiocontrol maestro m4
    Aka av888 3d boxed with less than 1 hrs use just opened to check it works
    As it was in storage for 3yrs also comes with Arcam cr102 remote control. I compared it to my marantz av8802a and for music it showed it a clean pair of heals. It also has a proper volume control on the front facia. I believe the Audiocontrol processors are assembled in the us and cost some what more than the Arcam equivalent.
    £1100 if you are interested
    Cheers

    curious, how come it's only had 1 hrs use? Can I ask where you bought it from, I think my only real concern is who would service/support it...

    Hi
    It was bought for a setup that was going to be installed in my old place. I then ended up working in Holland for a few yrs so it sat in storage along with other av equipment. All I have done is set it up to check it works properly along with some power amps and other bits. As for ever needing service contact PulseCinema uk

    kevshed I was speaking to Rickyj from Kalibrate and he might possibly have what you are looking for. Best to give him a call on his mobile. I might be wrong but Im sure he had an Arcam processor.
