Hi my son is just a setting up a system on a budget. He's been offered a arcam alpha 9 amp for £120. The speakers he got are Wharfedale diamond 220. Do anyone know if this amp is any good. Thanks

The Arcam Alpha 9 in it's day was regarded as one of the best amps. If it is working well it's probably a reasonable buy but because of it's reputation it is not cheap for it's age. Try it out first. Crackles when changing volume is a common problem but usually nothing serious. Also switching between inputs can produce crackling. Spraying contact cleaner may cure this problem.
