[WTD] Spare 555PS (no irony intended)

    I understand it's not something that one has put in a cupboard and forgotten it, but if someone has an unused 555PS, any age but cosmetically and internally in order and unmarked, I might be interested in it.

    Thanks for looking

    Don't you go over-committing Max. "I might be interested in it". Steady.

    By the way, if Scarlett Johansson finds herself at a loose end in Leeds anytime soon and wants a dinner date, I might be interested.

    May be worth contacting the ebay seller and making an offer. At the price he is advertising it should be dr at least, and possibly even serviced too. Two friends have bought used 555dr’s for 4k each, which were both less than 2 years old and both included a powerline. His price is way off.

    Thanks anotherdom, thanks Mr Happy: I think I'll contact the seller and see what can be done.
    stevec67, I see your point.

    That seller obviously has unrealistic expectations...I doubt he will go down to a fair price quickly..

    What is your idea of a fair price?

    Those sold on here recently were advertised at c£2200-2400, and the last one to sell by auction on eBay UK went for £2525.

    Doesn’t help that the Naim price for a new 555PS DR now looks to be £6599, and they’re still offering an attractive price for the DR upgrade (£1600) which is probably holding up used values.

    Then there’s the question of which sleeve finish any particular buyer prefers - at one stage the brushed anodised 500 series casework attracted a premium, then it wasn’t available...

    I see your point too.

    And BTW, if I had to be careful about plus or minus £200 – that could serve for food at home or shoes for my children – I wouldn't be such a moron to buy a 555PS.

    (Info: the Italian retail of the 555PSDR is currently €9500.)
