    Not sure what Nima arm's are worth these days (excellent arm) however the Radius 5 are one worse solution, in my book I'd much rather have a Rega.

    The price you're paying though for arm & deck is OK. All I was trying to say is that for some reason the Radius is being marketed as if its in the same sort of bracket as the Gyro when its not. I downgraded from a Gyro to a Radius to raise a bit of cash and I regretted it. That's not to say the Radius was a disappointment, its just not a Gyro.

    I did enjoy the Nima though, and its still the only unipivot I have owned so far. Takes a little time to setup, but its OK once you've got your head around the general principle of the thing. A really simple arm that people go nuts for, its just seems to work when there really isn't a lot there. Aluminium tube with a bit of perspex glued on the end and yet somehow it sounds great.

    There was a nice new in box 5.1 on eBay at the weekend: I asked the seller to confirm what finish it was since it was a stock photo on his listing and got such an angry and rude response I abruptly changed my mind about buying. Would have been a bargain, but I lost interest...

    Ah, the power of marketing (not).
