Now with a PC Specialist Quad Core i7-3770, 16GB RAM, 180GB SSD, GeForce GTX560 Ti Graphics Card, Blu-Ray & DVD R/W Burners and can't wait to set it up. Now up and running.  What a difference in Blu-Ray footage.

Interesting how nobody's remembered to mention anything about what's happened (and the auction) on their corporate website!! :D

Why would anyone do that? They've gone bust. It's over, done with. The company is no more. The administrators probably don't care. That website'll be there until the domain name or the hosting expires.

Maaaan! Why didn't you use the sarcastic smiley!! :) :p :) :o :D ;) :rolleyes: :eek:
Oh.
Hold on.
There isn't one.

Am off there tomorrow for a look, but what looked like bargains when the auction opened are looking less like bargains now.

We could start a separate thread about "what a sarcastic smiley would look like?"

I see the Fender Stratocaster in that list seems to have been taken out.

Just be aware I've found some of the auction items already listed on Ebay with an ending time BEFORE the Philip Davies auction ends :eek: (specifically lots 181,182 and 183)

hmm well dodgy!

Often the auctions on go-dove et al seem to be a little bit strange, when a company goes under it seems common that they sell off all their kit at auction, often much of it seems to close at top whack prices. Apparently things which do not get collected by the winning bidder are then resold by the auction staff at cut down prices to their mates or to people who have come to collect other kit from the auction.

I know of a case where someone was able to purchase "uncollected" video projectors that had reached £4000 each at the auction. They paid £800 for a pair of them direct to a member of the auction staff. which seemed very dodgy when i heard about it but now seems to be the way these things work (unless the people who are reselling these listings on ebay are actually making a loss on everything they sell!)

Kids broke in and nicked it! All that expensive high-end kit lying about and they nicked the guitar... they left their extension ladder, though, which may make it into the auction. The PC didn't seem too bothered about taking it away as evidence.

Oh, and I mentioned the fact that those mixers were already on e-bay. Showed them on my iPhone. A look passed between the chaps there, which I couldn't quite interpret...

Someone is going to make a nice profit - the Dell server is currently at £75 on the Philip Davies site but has one bid of £500 on Ebay, I bet the ebay seller is c***ing his pants that he gets it for £75 :eek:

As a matter of idle curiosity the mixers on eBay finished at just over £500 each and were all sold to the same buyer, with a zero feedback rating.

They were described as “Allen & Heath PA12-CP powered mixers” on eBay although the photo and the three lots in the Philip Davies auction are Allen & Heath PA12 mixers which do not have the built-in 500W per channel amplifier.

Interesting eh - well maybe not.

When I've seen that behaviour elsewhere, it implies shill bidding.
