Cosmetically looks perfect and very low hours, I am the 1st owner.
Statement from designer Richard bews: “NCSE III has PSU capacitor upgrade and different speaker wiring (the earth wiring for the speaker uses a large silver conductor and copper). This produces a more powerful sound compared to the Mark II, but I still wanted to preserve the “nice” sound of the mark II within the new mark III.”–Richard Bews.
What have you found that is better than this? I have tried several power amps to replace it since with a Mytek Manhattan dac/pre I don’t need an integrated amp any more.However Musical Fidelity and Bel Canto power amps have not been better than my 6 year old LFD NCSE MK2.
Just passing thru here, but if you ship in a box that’s already been used, double boxed or not, the driver can even run over the package and most shipping firms will not cover the damage, insured or not.
@Slim_Fishguttz, @Richard_Moore1, I believe FedEx will honor the insurance if it is damaged during transit. To protect myself and Richard (if he decides to go for it), I will take pictures in and out before shipping.
