"Sherwood AX-4050R amp + Sherwood CD-3050R...CD player."

I bought this amp from Richer Sounds along with the Sherwood CD-3050R cd player. I bought them in the late 1990s and I get incredible sound using a pair of Mordaunt Short MS20i Pearl edition speakers. The equipment has been boxed since I moved to Portugal in 2008 and when I set it up today, it still sounded superb. Sadly, I have to sell the amp, cd player and speakers as I don't have the room to leave it set up.

I bought one in 2000 from Richer Sounds and it has been a great amp. Sadly it has broken down. It shorts out, and there is a low buzz that comes out of the right channel. I have taken it to two repair shops here in Spain where I now live and they cannot find the replacement parts. I have a list of the parts it needs but cannot find them on E-bay.
Because of this I cannot use my Mission speakers that sound so good with it so I`m reduced to using a small speaker system for computers, which I plug into the headphone output of my CD player. I would have given it a 5 rating but as it no longer works I can only give it 3.
I also bought a Sherwood CD player the same year from Richers and that broke after a few years. The CD draw does not open.
It has been the first time in my life that I have bought hi-fi that has broken down. I was a loyal customer at Richers and would“nt normally go anywhere else, but they don“t deliver abroad and decent equipment here in Spain is very expensive. A similar amp here costs about 100 Euros more than in the U.K.

I purchased this amp for £149.99 from Richer sounds in 2000 and it still works in 2013!

This is a powerful amp pumping out 50 watts per channel.

This amp has a clear, powerful and wide sound stage with plenty of detail
especially if coupled with a high quality source and high quality speakers.

This amp beats a lot of amps twice as expensive!

A truly great buy.

I've owned one of these for about 15 years. It's just about loosened up. Coupled with a pair of Mordaunt Short MS202s, it's simply unbeatable, especially for the price. I am praying that it keeps going forever as I would hate to have to replace it! Just brilliant!
