    Has anybody heard of this power and pre amp combination on sale in Richer Sounds?

    I cannot find any mention of them on the internet, apart from a website in Hong Kong.

    They are being sold under the Celestion Ditton name, but Celestion (speaker manufacturer) haven't heard of them.

    Thanks

    I have a feeling that the name is one of Richers own. There was a post a couple of weeks ago from someone who had bought one and he was pleased with it.

    DITTON DDP 5.1 PRE/DCA 5.1 POWER AMP
    i bought the new silver pre/power amp in november 2005
    and for 1600 pounds i can say it was money well spent.
    i had the older black version and that was one of the best pre/power amps i have ever had.
    well the new one in my view is better then the yamaha rx-v4600 and the arcam diva avr300 .
    i tested both these amps and and the ditton was better in every way.
    it is now
    2 x 200 watts in stereo
    5 x 100 watts in surround sound
    there is a waiting list for this amp at the moment and they take 2 months from the day you pay for .
    enjoy

    Friendy had that from Richer Sounds, looks great and sound quality good too. Has a nice backlit screen on the preamp/processor and good quality aluminium casing on both. The only thing is his backlit screen went soon after warranty ran out and it's a pain now to use.

    I bought some "Celestion Ditton" floor standers about three years from Richer Sounds, mainy because a mate highly recommended Celestion and of course I loved the sound of them, good bass.

    Trying to find out more about them Celestion said nothing to do with us! and Richer Sounds should not be calling them Celestion! because they are not our product! Tut Tut I thought.

    I forget now but I think Celestion bought out Ditton that is when the Celestion Ditton speakers appeared, after a while Celestion sold off the Ditton part, and Ditton carried on making there own speakers and other bits. This is where my Ditton speakers came from - so nothing to do with Celestion what so ever, so I am told.

    But absolutly FAB speakers, wanted others from the same AV set, but yes you've guessed it, only available in Hong Kong!!

    One other thing, the ditton power amplifier and digital processor is not by celestion, nothing says anything about celestion anywhere in the manuals and on the actual units.
