Re: Second hand / refurbished macs

G5s - Probably your best bet is Ricardo/Ebay - most of the firms I know still with G5s are hoarding them as spares for such things as image setters and drum scanners which no longer work with newer Macs. Avoid the models with liquid cooled processors as they have a habit of leaking and by the time you notice it's too late.

Mac Pro Dustbin - You'll be lucky to find these second hand, unless it's a firesale from a company that's gone bankrupt. Again Ricardo/Ebay may be your best choice

Mac Mini - Specs? If you want the 2012 core i7 model then these often go for more than a new Mac Mini.

Apple displays - avoid like the plague. They look nice but their reliability, or lack thereof, is legendary. There are way better and cheaper options, and also bear in mind that Apple have stopped manufacturing displays.

Anyway you could try these places.

By the way I wouldn't mind popping down to your Batcave again. I've done quite a bit since we last met, and I've got a few bits and pieces that I'd like to try out on decent monitors, and perhaps get some feedback from you as well.

I have same problem, except my vice is headphones - I've just picked up a pair of Beyer DT1990 Pros.

Genelecs - nice. That's even more of an incentive to get my butt to your Batcave. I've been eying up some Genelecs to replace my Rokits for some time now.

Rokits - throw them in the bin straight away

Speak to me before you buy the Genelecs. I had the guys from Genelec in the batcave for 2 weeks testing their entire range from the small 8020's eggs right upto 1238A's . With widely varing results between products. Some amazing, some utter dog poo.

I know - I've already got DT1350s, DT880 Pros, DT1770 Pros, and now the DT1990 Pros. Their in-ears are crap though

Oh come on, they're not that bad as speakers, they're just not well suited to the task that they're marketed for.

I most certainly will do. I'm looking for something no bigger than a 5 inch woofer as I work really nearfield, and possibly a small sub as well, which can be kicked in and out as I need it.

Thats a bit like saying 'this vauxhall nova is not bad as a car, just not well suited to the task.....
