  1. there you go bearboy https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/194941022121?hash=item2d6363efa9:g:SNUAAOSwrIxiQID0
  2. fingers crossed for a well done on that kevin
  3. drive main body is no good now, once thyat clip at the back is broken it is fubar'ed you will have to send it back also you have the kit to make a good one out of the pair of them choices choices
  4. the difference is between analogue and coaxial, the jb's dac is better than the marantz i believe, and when used this way it shows, bye the way a cd63se is a good choice aswell. ive also used a denon dcd 825, the results were a little closer with that one as they use burr brown dac's, they are decent price just now, they have variable output adjusted with the remote, if thats missing you would need to use a programmable one as the default volume is not the loudest position. these are old but good girls and now are getting age related issues eg laser, which are cheap and plentiful, denon used a sony and marantz uses a phillips type, the 5v regulator can go bad an the marantz, easy fix, symptom of that is no switch on. they dont make them like they used to, these are better built than todays rubbish.
  5. got the marantz cd63 ki connected to a jb930 via coaxial, made quite a bit of a difference, with marantz players you could have either option, coaxial or optical have you liberated the 480 from the combination thingy you got a bit back kevin
  6. watch that space, he might be going for the full set, 920 and 930 next then he is going to take out a mortgage to get a 980 !!!!
  7. the 980 was 100 quid years ago, the other jb's were 35 to 60 quid all bar one spares or repair, well it was but in the end nowt wrong with it, a 940 owes me 100 quid as thats the one that was first and i learned what not to do with that, and the other shall i say more basic models were 15 to 35 quid again spares or repair including a 520 and s50 that i broke for spares as both were knackered on the outside. and around 250 quid for the 930 that i bought new 20 odd years ago which was sold to buy the 980 in around 2009.
  8. nice but another mortgage required or for the seriously rich https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/144229389976?hash=item2194bdd698:g:LuUAAOSwnFBhWI6f
  9. another bank loan item https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203630204674?hash=item2f694e5702:g:6yIAAOSwdxFhUvOB
  10. 909 is a good quality portable. brushed aliminium and all that, got mine when they were cheap about 15 years ago, came with all the bits and some discs and i dont think it was much more than 20 quid for the lot. as for 940's kevin a guy bought a remote for one on ebay recently for 50 quid, gives you an idea where they are at, but quality machine non the less. ive bought 440/470's for 30 quid spares or repair, mostly its just the belt, a 980 for that is a total steal and still cheap even if you bought one of those (4), i mean 980 drives that are popping up, as 980's can go for lots of cash
  11. nope seems ok just now
  12. having said all that i missed a total bargain here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/294421039472?hash=item448cdc8970:g:BowAAOSwSNFhUG5t
  13. and 470's also not far behind, the only cheap ones now are dare i say it the old not much cop ones, kevin has been quiet, wonder if he has been to the bank to take a mortgage out on that 555es, and use all of his other kit as collateral, you could buy a half decent car for that
  14. and the the previously said about one with the guy selling drives for 980's for a ton a pop, as we all know he wont be scrapping 980's to do that
