*** UK only for the time being ***

Having upgraded to an 861v4, I am selling my cherished G68. It is an original, non-SpeakerLink, silver ADV model without the USB audio input, and with more analogue and digital inputs and outputs than you can shake a stick at! Perfect for digital, analogue or mixed speaker systems.

I bought it as an essentially unused ex-demo item from Sevenoaks Swiss Cottage (which was ceasing its Meridian dealership) and it is still in excellent cosmetic and functional condition:
  • When not being used, it has been left in standby (i.e. minimal power cycling) and I have seen no symptoms which are associated with a failing PSU.
  • The rotary knob (and main display which is on the same board) was replaced under warranty and has barely been used since. I have the receipt for this work.
  • The latest (1.5) firmware is installed.
Cosmetics are at least 9/10 having been racked for most of its life. Having gone over it with a fine toothcomb and being truly pedantic:
  • There is a very small (3-4mm) scratch on the glass top, hard to spot and easily mistaken for a small bit of dust.
  • A few scratches on the back plate.
  • Slight rubbing on the rear left hand side (which must have been acquired when I put it into or removed it from my rack at some point). I think this can probably be cleaned up.
IMO, none of these "issues" detract in any way from what is essentially a processor of mint appearance. I just like to tell it as it is. TBH, I doubt you'll find a better original ADV out there.

It is being sold with ALL original accessories and original packaging:
  • MSR+, used but in good condition, boxed with all original spare source keys (inc. 4 blanks), manual, and some batteries.
  • 5C comms lead.
  • AM antenna loop.
  • FM wire antenna.
  • FM antenna adaptors.
  • Power cord.
  • USB cable (for MConfig)
  • Installation Guide.
  • G Series System Guide.
  • Configuration Program Guide.
All in all, I'm looking for 1,250 + insured courier costs. Offers welcome - try me. Pickup could also be arranged in the Aylesbury or Milton Keynes areas.

UK sale only for the time being. Bag a bargain!

Thanks for looking,
Joel (VK)
