Richer sounds have been doing, what seems to be a good deal but is it?

CA Azur 640c V.2
CA Azur 640a
Mordaunt Short 902i

All for £499.95

Budget for 3 pieces is £500 – so is this the best I can get? Anyone got excellent quality seconds of the same/better spec they want to
sell?

Cheers
JK

Unfortunately, Richer Sounds only supply "basic" interconnects and speaker cable with their hi-fi bundles. I would therefore suggest that you haggle them for a £20 or so lead to go from the CD Player to the Amplifier, you should be pleased that you did. You could try and get some chunky speaker cable too, but tbh I am not overly impressed by any of the Richer Sounds speaker cable, so it may be as well to go elsewhere.

Sound-quality wise, it should be pretty decent. The components have all been very well received by the hi-fi press, the only question is whether they sound good together (a demo could be in order, though check that the components have been thoroughly run-in or it is of little worth imo).

sorry mate - can you explain - if they are new they wont be run-in at all right? :confused:

Run-in basically means to have been used continuously for a decent period of time, a total of 24 hours is popular. Gives all of the electronics time to settle.

Out-of-the-box equipment will not have been run-in and thus shops must make a conscious effort to do this for their demonstration equipment. I suspect that a lot of people will be demoing the Cambridge gear, so it shouldn't be too big a concern.

Also ideal is if the equipment is powered up for a couple of hours before you demo to get it up to temperature. Would have to call in advance for this though.
