    I was very fortunate in finding an 'open box' Nagaoka MP 500 at a bargain price and it was shipped without delay.
    Excellent all-round service and John was very helpful over the phone.
    I felt I'd actually been served in the store as opposed to the usual clinical online transaction experience.
    I'm sure that when my next attack of 'upgrade-itis' happens , I shall be checking out Audio Affair.Well done !
