    i have an arcam avr600 in black, with original setup mic,remote control and manual. It's a non 3D version so no hdmi passthrough.
    Fully working, being honest the transformer on it does buzz a bit if you get up close, but with a film on i don't hear it.
    Location is brighton and looking at £425.

    Thanks for the offer. It's a shame about the transformer hum. If it's loud enough to mention I guess it is likely to be quite loud so I'll probably give it a miss. I've had that problem with other amps before and know the only solution is usually to get a new transformer which would be pricey.
    How far away from the amp do you have to get for it to not be noticeable?

    Ok cheers let me know if you have any luck. The first thing to try is probably to do up the main central holding bolt on the transformer more tightly. It might not work, but is worth a go.
