    I just read your post about something i don't remember exactly, but in which i saw a long list of website address for ex-demo and sencond hand hifi kits

    Although I have spent more than 4 hours tracking down a huge number of posts, I failed to relocate it

    It is a bit fustrating to request your help. But if you have bare time, please send me a long list of the web site address.

    Please accept my apology for disturbing you.

    Thank you in advance

    Yours Sincerely,

    Julio

    Just thought I'd let you know that I've made a custom Google search engine tailored to searching for 2nd hand hifi within the UK, including classified ad sections of forums like this one. I did it for myself (in my quest for ATC Active 50s! :) ), but thought it might come in handy for other folk too.

    Find it here: www.2ndhandhifisearch.co.uk

    (The actual URL is http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=016871463489058191226:asc9p4ueebk but I've registered www.2ndhandhifisearch.co.uk to make it a bit more memorable!)

    It allows volunteers to submit new sites to be included in the search, so if you know of some juicy sites, go ahead and volunteer (or just PM/email me about them). I want to keep it as well targeted as possible, so you get reliable 2nd hand hifi results back, and nothing else.

    It mostly seems to work well (though maybe not perfect). I've used www.exdem.co.uk before and it's okay, but I'm hoping this Google one will be better, particularly if I can get folk volunteering to contribute.

    Let me know what you think.

    Cheers,
    Dunc

    P.S. - I've cross-posted this on other forums - please don't be offended!

    Hi Folks I am new here, I recently bought some bits (amp and speakers) from a guy in Bracknell, his site is www.greenhomeshop.co.uk, he had loads of a/v stuff in when I went to pick my stuff up. Cheap too.

    Here's a silly question for you all :thumbsup: can someone among you help me with a tuner problem? I bought a Ariston THX 510 from eBay, it works fine, apart from no manual!!
    Every time I tune in a station it detunes when I try to tune/programme in another station on a different button on the presets. Can anyone tell me how to programme the presets permanently or point me in the proper direction

    heres hoping :lease:
    TZY

    Can I add my my site to this list: Hi-Fi Hunter - Second hand, used or ex-demo hi-fi and home cinema bargains.
    Its another second hand / ex-demo search engine, (similar vain to Dunkyboy's site he listed above, but more up to date). It covers lots of forums, classifieds sites, ebay and Hi-Fi dealer ex-dem/clearance pages.

    Mods: if you feel this is too much self promotion, apologies in advance, just seemed no worse than Dunkyboy's post about his site earlier. :)

    help for ex-demo/second-hand/preowned website addresses

    Sorry, but this has been rattling around in my mind since the Post first appeared. And admittedly it is the most pointless comment one could make.

    But it sounds like you are looking for Used Websites, not websites for used audio equipment.


    Like I said, a pointless comment, but I found it amusing.
