Official launch date is Monday guys, so you are not wrong and I'll tell you more then, as I promised to say nothing but, someone evidently has taken a leak! FYI. I was invited up to the factory last month and I tell you it's bloody fab IMHO and I hope to have one on demo later next week.

Numbers for sale... Mmmm well remember the Kandid availability initially............... :smt018

Presumably there is a bit of price hike on the Klyde?

It would be funny if they had followed my suggestion and based it on the Delos - but in any event the Klyde had been showing its age for a while - and I have never heard a (mythical beast and/or owner's wishful thinking perhaps?) really good one.

Anyway - more exiting news for lovers of music on vinyl :D
Currently Cymbiosis LP12 Woodsong Wenge, Klimax Radikal/Chord Sarum T, Keel/A, Khan, Tranquility, Urika/Chord SSA, Aro, sKale, Lyra Kleos SL - Sondek owner since 1982 - the rest is Naim, Chord and Kudos 8)

Based on and improved, now that would be good :D Pricewise, I would think that it would need to be somewhere between the Delos and Kleos to be competitive and for it to be a real option to the Kandid, IMHO.

I can plenty of Adikt and even K9 people about who couldnt afford the price of a Klyde. This could venture them into the MC world if there are great deals around. 8)
