    Guys - can you settle an issue for me please. :lesson:

    The avantguard stuff appeared when the silver F3 type units arrived, then eventually on black units after TMA ran out of F3 printed black facias.

    The point is, has anyone ever seen an avanteguard black CDT20R-T2L transport? I haven't and I don't think any were ever made, but as ever, I am open to alternative trains of thought.

    Any takers? Anyone out there actually got a black T2L Avanteguarde unit?

    AvanteGarde was always meant to signify silver products

    Thanks Mark :thumbsup:

    Any other takers on this thread? I have been asked why my F3 transport is not an "Avanteguarde" buy a potential buyer, and would like confirmation that my answer is correct. :lesson:

    If I just scrape the mould off my brain - there were to be 'F1', 'F2' and 'F3' products.

    The F1 and F2 electronics were dropped with just the F3 products remaing as we know them. The AvantGarde bit was originally for the silver stuff. In the end everything was designated 'AvantGarde'. So, theres a bit of both out there.

    I guess older fascias still have 'F3' - but like I say, its been sometime now so dont shoot me if I'm wrong.

    As far as I am aware it is just a name, no functional differences exist at all between a F3 badged unit and an Avantgarde badged unit. I seem to recall the units were re-named from F3 to stop people asking and assuming that there would be an F2/F1 unit and therefore putting off the purchase and waiting for the better units to come along..... As we all know F2/F1 never made it...... Avantgarde badged units are newer that is all...

    My CDT20R-T2L Transport (Black) has the Avantegarde badge.

    Small world if you are the same Spencer who sold me a power amp (Chistmas two yrs ago), hope your pals liked the whiskey.
