Good news analogue lovers, UK FM switch off has been postponed indefinitely. As we've all known all along, DAB just doesn't cut it.

I'm pleased to announce that Hi-Fi Hunter has now been extended to cover Canada. You can now use your favourite used HiFi search engine to find the best pre-owned bargains in local to you in Canada. Just like the other local versions of Hi-Fi Hunter, all the main forums, classified sites and ebay are included in the index and all searched concurrently, to save you time visiting every site manually.

Royd Audio were famous for their Minstrel speakers, a fun, musical and cheap little miniature floor standing speaker. However the Revelation range were Royd's swan song. The culmination of years of experience and fine tuning of a winning formula. Here we have the RR1, the Minstrel's beaters from the Revelation range. Extremely rare, very good and beautifully hand made in Shropshire. A final piece of craftsmanship from Joe Akroyd before going into retirement.

Here we have another rare pair of speakers for you. These are the Kef Reference 105 speakers, first produced in 1970 and continued to be built until 1987. They are a no holds barred high end design, not just the best speakers Kef had produced, but the a landmark in speaker design across the industry. Highly regarded for tonal accuracy and stereo precision, their 3 way design places each driver in a separate cabinet for optimal frequency response. With those huge 12″ bass drivers these 105′s reach down to 38Hz with ease – many average subwoofers on the market today can’t even do this!

And now for something completely different... Here we have a gem of Sony electronics from 1983, the PS-F5 or 'Flamingo' as it was affectionately called in Japan. A portable record player, with a funky direct drive, record clamping and linear tracking cartridge setup. It will play 7" and 12" discs, 33.3 or 45, flat or vertically! It will run off batteries or external PSU and sports a couple of headphone sockets.

There's been some big changes behind the scenes at Hi-Fi Hunter lately. We've been moving to a brand new server, with more power at our disposal, which should provide much quicker site performance all round.

A good DAC in your system can be a great investment, perfect for getting top quality sound from your PC, MAC, streaming device, or just eeking a bit more from your CD player. But which to choose, stick with a well known brand (Arcam, Cambridge Audio, Musical Fidelity, Audiolab etc) or maybe try one of the unknowns from the far east that is flooding ebay? If you choose the latter option, it can be a minefield ascertaining which are well designed and implemented bargains, and which are just cobbled together rubbish...

This monster AV receiver was released by Rotel in 2007 and is one hell of a jammed packed box of tricks. You've got full 7.1 surround support, 4 HDMI inputs (1 output), video upscaler, 4 zone multi-room options, loads of digital and analogue inputs and 75W of output per channel! Rotel are a proven name, with a reputation for quality kit, a clear step up from your cheaper Onkyo's and Sherwood's  receivers. Arcam gear may have the edge on sound quality and musical presentation, but the Rotel's tend to trump on spec.

Quick! quick! Just stumbled across this pair of Royd Ela Mk1 transmission line speakers. Sharing the same design and drivers/tweeters as the Royd Apex. They were a joint venture between Joe Akroyd at Royd Audio and Rega. The biggest differences being the crossover and cosmetics of the cabinets.

Heybrook first introduced this Quartet speaker around 1990 and continued it's production throughout the '90s. Universally highly regarded and although out shone by the Quintet and Sextet speakers higher up the range, it still sold well and regularly crops up second hand. There presentation is on the side of accuracy and detail, ideal for classical music and softer acoustic/vocal tunes. Metal heads should look elsewhere.  Sensitivity is high, making them easy drive and perfect for low power valve and class-a solid state amps.

Find the best Hi-Fi second hand and exdemo, with this unique search engine
Introduction
A lot of new Hi-Fi and home cinema equipment can be very expensive to buy. However, by searching the second hand and ex-demo markets it's possible to find items much cheaper.

Quality high end gear is built to a very high specification, so will last many years, possibly even decades, thus used items need not be a risky purchase.

The second hand value of items, will often reflect more accurately the true value of an item, regarding its sound quality and reliability, with less being spent on brand premium.

Hi-Fi Hunter is a unique search engine, that indexes numerous HiFi and AV forums, classifieds sites, ebay and Hi-Fi dealer exdemo/clearance pages. This provides a one stop shop to find the item you want, whether its something specific, or opportunist browsing the latest kit to hit the market.

The site also contains many guides on buying and selling second hand Hi-Fi, tips and advice to get the best price and avoid the common scams that are out there.
