Yes. He has posted here he is leaving Meridian and has been running Trinnov for some time. The stuff he is going to buy is not shabby either. You can find him in the Trinnov threads pretty easily.

DSP5200SE Speakers listed on Audio Europa.

Anyone know anything about these? The price is too good to be true.

If this is legit, I’ll buy them despite the shipping and wrong voltage... But I recently ran across a similar ad which turned out to be a scam...

Looks about £3000 too good to be true to me...

I've noted cheap largish active ATCs listed via the same site - at a low price for the spec - so can only assume too good to be true. Not that I am in the market for more speakers or kit!!

Is this a good price for an 861v4 or is it too good?

Hi JamieB
By UK standards this is a very low price. Take great care.

While it is a low price for a v4 it looks pretty good. The seller has excellent feedback for the last 9 years. It comes with a black MSR plus which would not be original to this machine that apparently started life as a v3. I honestly would not have issue with buying it based on the ad if I was in the market. I would however clarify which power supply was installed. While a linear power supply would improve the sound it is also a $1100.00 upgrade.

ID40 would also be a valued enhancement.
As stated by Bruce, linear PS upgrade is very desirable.

The price seams good, but still reasonable. The picture of the back shows that it has no LPS because it supports multiple voltages.

It could show that the person who changed the power supply didn't apply the appropriate labels as well. Only cracking open the case will tell for sure. However, it is bargin priced if it includes the $1100.00 LPS. Plus it has a headphone output.
