    I thought I would start this new form off with a discussion of what kind of British gear AKers have. I'll start:

    Spendor SP-1/2e's
    Target stands and rack

    I have a Cambridge Audio C75 pre, and A74 power. Love it, but I have a feeling it's starting to get on in years, and will need a full re-cap soon.

    Target Wall-pro turntable shelf and Atacama speaker stands, in my primary system.

    Harbeth SHL-5 and Quad ESL-63pro speakers. NAD isn't British anymore, is it?

    I drive a Land Rover and there is a stereo in it, does that count?

    I do have a rotel cd player, that I think is British. Or at least has British influences.

    Nothing in my main system is British. There are a few British components in my spares stock, including an NAD 7020 receiver, a Garrard Zero 92 turntable, and a Garrard MRM 101 Music Recovery Module (an MM phono preamp with a built-in click and pop suppressor).

    Linn LP12 and Cambridge DacMagic. Guess you could say I like the British sound since its in both of my main sources. :)
