    Hi cablecar

    I'll take the Rotel RB 993 at asking price of £200 if followings can be confirmed:

    1) Amp is in good working order and cosmetic condition (no faults whatsoever)
    2) Photos of the Amp showing cosmetic condition can be uploaded
    3) Delivery can be arranged to London RM9 if possible (can look into other options)

    Hi cablecar

    Thanks for prompt reply.

    This is one dusty amp :). I must say cosmetic condition isn't great. From what I can see, paint is been chipped off from front fascia and there are quite few other small marks.

    I honestly didn't expect it in this condition.

    I appreciate that this is in good working order but I'm afraid I have to revise my offer to £200 including delivery for amp in this cosmetic condition. I hope it'll be acceptable for you.

    Appreciate that if you can please.
    This will give a better idea of cosmetic condition.

    I have just taken another picture after a good dust, there is no cosmetic damage to the paintwork that I can see, I would have to say it's in A1 condition.

    This looks much better now.

    I'm ok to take it. Can I ask which courier you've got quote from. I hope it's not hermes. I had really bad experience with them more than once.

    Also is it OK if I can request you to arrange delivery towards end of next week. I'll be able manage payment by then.

    A friendly advice. Never upload photo of equipment you are selling without giving it a good clean in future. [emoji846]

    If all good we can take it to PM.

    The quote was from Hermes, I too have had mixed results using them, but the last couple of times they have been OK. Let me have your exact postcode by PM and I will get other quotes.
