Sound Devices 788T 10 track, 8 input recorder. £3100 + VAT
This item is in good condition with a few minor scratches from normal use.
It comes with a power supply, C-Link cable, XLR to TA3 cables to plug mic’s into inputs 5 to 8, a battery and a 16GB CF card. It also comes with a CL-WIFI device for remote control from an iOS device (not iOS 11).
The 788 is a 10 track recorder, with 8 pristine, super quiet mic inputs. It also has 6 analog and 6 digital outputs, a feature lacking from cheaper recorders, allowing you to feed multiple mixes to cameras and other systems. It also has two headphone outputs, one on 1/4”, one on 3.5mm. It records simultaneously to an internal hard drive and to a CF memory card for dual redundant backup.
The LED rings around the 8 record level knobs give instant feedback that you are receiving signals into each input, and turn red when peaks occur. Channels can easily be linked together when using stereo or ambisonic microphones, to ensure each channel is recorded at the same gain setting. On0board decoding of MS and B-Format ambisonic recordings allow these to be monitored properly during recording.

Yamaha LS9-32 £2000 + VAT = £2400
In excellent cosmetic condition. Bought in 2008, this desk has been well looked after and has only seen occasional use. Comes in original packaging, i.e. cardboard box, no flight case! The desk has 32 XLR mic inputs built in, and 16 XLR outputs. These can be expanded using the MY expansion slot for up to 72 inputs (64 mono, 4 stereo return) and 27 outputs (16 mix, 8 matrix, stereo, mono). Three of the faders are failing calibration and need replacing - which i can sort, or you can if you prefer - £150 off the purchase price if you want to do it (replacement faders cost £20 each).
Sennheiser MKE44P £295+VAT = £354
A super-compact stereo mic, ideal for field recording. It is light to hold and has classic Sennheiser sound quality. Runs off phantom power or off an AA battery. This mic is in as-new condition. New retails at over £500 + VAT
Rode NT4 stereo mic £75 + VAT = £90
A nice stereo mic for field recording. However a slight design flaw (no basket to protect the capsules) means the capsules are easily banged. So the mic is fine for static recording on a mic stand, but no longer good for field recording as the capsule is a touch loose (the two capsules can make contact if you are running around for example). The nickel base is marked from spending a lot of time in my rucksack.

Persons Firestudio Mobile £45 + VAT = £54
This handy little sound card has 2 mic/line inputs plus another 6 line inputs. Two outputs and a headphone socket. Plus SPDIF input and out, and MIDI input and output. It works off Firewire so will need a Thunderbolt to Firewire adaptor to use it with the current MacBooks, which can be handy as it doesn't take up a precious USB port! It is bus-powered so can doesn't need a power adaptor, but one can be used if you have a PC that doesn't supply bus power.
