    i think my best bargain was a peugeot 306 xsi for £80 with t+t,i drove it home and put a concrete weight from a washing machine (that the council wouldnt take) in the boot and then drove it to the scrappers to weigh the car in and walked away with £370 :D
    with the gov scrappage scheme i would prob only get 100 for it now ...

    Beware, many years back i bought a cheap set of creative 5.1's brandnew for about £35, it was good for a while until the wired remote that came with it started to play up. one moment the sound was inaudible then the next moment it was really freaking loud and i had to jam a guitar plectrum in the remote to keep the volume level. but on occasion it would still happen randomly.

    I cant remember what the model number was. but i still have them in my shed somwhere

    good to know, thanks mate. this one was a no reserve set, for some reason it didn't light up like crazy, guess it was an older set so it was not so sought after

    only 5 grand!
    psh pocket change,i might buy one for my deaf aunty
    that should be good for around 200 w/side with 4 6550s in push pull
    though swapping them out for kt88's would be sensible for a bit of weight in the low end.
    5 grand though!

    if youre looking to valves -- dont buy from Watfordvalves they are terrible. buy from hotroxuk instead. thats where i get all the valves from my amps from. all valves are tested before they leave the shop to ensure you dont get a duff one.

    the only difference here is your Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro breakout box was designed for use with a IR remote.

    the one on my cheap £35 speakers wasnt. the wired remote was just borked

    oh and huskie. when you get back to the UK i might have need of your electrician skills. so let me know when youre back

    Anyone got a nice/cheap soundcard lying around gathering dust?

    I think its more of a subjective thing.

    you wont know until you buy one and try it out. on the other hand it would save you trying to find 3rd party modded drivers to keep your Audigy working in W7.

    its only £20.

    I tell you what. buy one. try it out and if you dont like it i will take it off you for the exact same price as i need one for my friends system build anyway. YOU might not want it but he will.

    so youve got nothing to lose
