    For sale I have an Arcam Solo Music. It has hardly ever been used and is in excellent condition. THe only minor points I can see are a couple of small marks on the bottom of the remote, and a tiny tiny little mark on one of the speakers. It comes with two Arcam Alto speakers and 2x3m of QED cable with (banana?) plugs on the end.

    http://www.arcam.co.uk/products,solo,music-systems,SoloMusic.htm

    Great all in one system with cd, fm, dab, am and inputs for whatever you want to plug in.

    Both are in their original boxes, with all the packaging and both manuals. However, it does not come with an fm/dab aerial.

    I would like £500 cash on collection.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the interest. I'm selling it for a friend, and he has told me a few more things about it. The speakers have been used briefly, but hardly at all, and the main unit a little more. He sent it in for a service/firmware update in 2010.

    I asked him about your offer and he would like a higher price if it's including p+p. They are heavy and in two boxes, so would be expensive to post, let me try to price up postage. The speaker cable is QED anniversary cables with airloc at both ends (so about £60 of cable).

    Regards,

    lmaolmao

    Hi, I have spoken to the owner and he would be willing to go to £460 inc p+p as there are two boxes so postage is quite high.

    Hi there I'm genuinely interested if you would accept £460.00 delivered?

    Also would your friend sell the Solo separately?

    Theses questions relayed to me from a mate of mine.

    Cheers..

    Yep. £460 delivered (to the mainland uk) is the price. But I'm trying to sell it as a single item.

    I'm a bit confused.

    I offered £460:00 delivered for both the Solo and the speakers but you seem to imply now that the Solo is being sold separately.

    Could you clarify please?

    I've been watching this for a while (as I'm still tempted, but really trying to double my budget & get seperates)

    The offer from pzblues was for the Unit + Speakers (no cables)

    The OP said:
    £460 + P&P for everything (Solo, speakers & cables)
    £450 inc P&P (Solo & speakers)

    You then asked if he would sell the solo on its own, thats why the OP has said he wants to sell as a package.

    The seller wrote on his last reply,"But I'm trying to sell as a single item"


    That's why I'm a bit confused.Maybe he forgot to put the word 'Not' in with the sentence I presume.

    Hi, sorry for the confusion. It is £460 for everything posted. Or £450 without the QED cables. I hope that makes sense.

    Regards.

    Hi. Thanks for posting back. I'm afraid the seller won't go any lower on the price so they are fixed now. Regards. Lmaolmao

    Ok, if there were to be a problem with the solo/speakers, ie; not working or not as described etc, who would take responsibility? You or your friend?

    I have it here. I took the photos and I tested it the day I made this thread. I'm treating it as if I'm selling it (I just don't get the money afterwards!)

    It would appear that mr paws has pulled out of an agreed deal! I am interested but at my original offer, if the price is firm as you have stated then i too wish you good luck with the sale

    I will have a chat with the owner tomorrow to see if he will consider £440 posted. But I doubt it. I think it's fairly priced at £460 and I think we'll have to try somewhere else soon. Thanks for your interest and ill confirm tomorrow.

    Hi,

    just wanted to update and apologise for the delay, this week has been unbelievably hectic and I haven't had a chance to catch up with the owner. I'll try to catch him tomorrow.

    Apologies.
