    SB Acoustics 16 MTM speakers - Troels Gravesen design

    Hi Gordon, Thanks for your reply, apologies for not picking it up until now. Fantastic hobby you have, very jealous! I've looked through your flickr, I'm also a flickr user ( Mostly work stuff ). If you dig deep enough you'll find some of my refurbishment speaker projects. I'd love to hear all of these builds, I especially like the illuminator 4 build you've done, not to mention the space shed! Do you document your builds anywhere online? Thanks for sharing! Carl.
  2. Oh, yes it is, I didn't realise you were after that coming. The pair together are lovely, for me at least.
  3. Special 40's it is then. No valves for these though, just brutal A - A/B power if we have it coming?
  4. Ironically I have a thread in the classifieds looking for one at the moment, I may have one by then.
  5. I don't think I've got a CD player. You know what it's like John, I don't know whether I'm coming or going at the best of times! Although I'll take a look at the Kegworth thingy. Current kit if you want to hear anything - Dynaudio Special 40 Dynaudio Contour 60 Bowers 803 Diamond Bowers 805S JBL L112 Yamaha ns1000 Plinius Houtonga NAD S300 (just come back from a snaz up) Yamaha CA1000ii (Again just come back from its second snaz up, my favourite amp) Naim Unity Nova So amps and speakers mainly, I only use a computer source so I can be of no help there.
  6. Let's go! Anything you would like me to bring? I've got kit coming out of my bloody ears at the moment. Carl.

    SB Acoustics 16 MTM speakers - Troels Gravesen design

    I’d love to hear these I bet they sound fantastic. SB midbass’ are amongst the best I’ve heard, so effortless. Is this something you do do all the time? Be nice to see any of your other work Finish looks incredible! Carl.

    Do we know the seller?

    Yes they’re quite ridiculous, I love them. Was hoping we could catch him outside of Ebay as it’s a little ambitious with fees on top to boot.

    Rel Q200E

    Great piece of kit, had it ages. Thinning out my home cinema stuff. Stomps along, aesthetically its a little used, a couple of the little white directional arrows from the rear knobs have been eaten, not needed, functionally it's perfect. £150 collected, I've not got a box for it.

  12. As per my other thread - "Truth be told, the house is all sorted and we move on Friday! But it's smaller than our current house, so time to just go two channel and run the TV through that to save space. I'll build something dedicated to stereo/cinema when I get time and I'll get a little more serious. For now, I'm going to move on most of my Home Cinema set up." So these I've had for what feels like forever. Great speakers in my home cinema set, I actually part ex'd these with my first set of 802d for a system downsize. I've always had different speakers for Hifi, I think because my wife prefers these to any others I've had so I've kept the systems separate, usually in a different building altogether. On the subject of my wife, she's kept the remotes on top of one of them, it's faired quite well but being gloss black you can expect marks, trying to keep anything gloss black "mark free" with two horrifying kids and a ninja-star remote throwing wife is impossible. I'd give them an 8/10 close up, 10/10 from a seated position. I have the boxes although they aren't in incredible condition, I've not got the original jumpers but I'll keep the little leads I've made up with them. If I were a potential buyer I would be wanting to collect, if not postage/ins etc is at buyers risk/expense. Heres a few pics, I've taken pictures of marks etc - Note - Swirl marks on top of the speaker That white dot is a tiny chip, likely from a hotwheels toy (probably a shit one) or a bite mark. In the very top left corner of the right-hand grill is a pull, they can be sat either way up so this only bothered me for a few days. Just under it that little brown mark will come out, it's likely a baked bean or human faeces, maybe some sick or even a cocopop, who knows? All in all, they're cool for considering the onslaught they've sustained. They regularly sell for £1,000/£1,200 in gloss black, I think to a whammer I'd let them go for £800 considering you never know when a child's lightsaber might come flying out of one of the rear ports. All joking aside they're a great bit of kit in good nick, ready to go as they're a little in the way, I'm not in a rush but would prefer if they were to be going that they go soon. I am absolutely open to trading, swapping, trading up etc for other cool stuff. Thanks, Southampton / Carl / Cash/bacs/paypal gift

    Yamaha Aventage RX A840 + BD S677

    Truth be told, the house is all sorted and we move on Friday! But it's smaller than our current house, so time to just go two channel and run the TV through that to save space. I'll build something dedicated to stereo/cinema when I get time and I'll get a little more serious. For now, I'm going to move on most of my Home Cinema set up. So, I've had this pair for a year or so, I bought them new and they've been perfect. Brilliant, actually. I'll miss how good they are together for Bluray and movie sound and the fact they netwrok so well, meaning our whole family could stream to them, play music wirelessly, video wirelessly, musicast etc. Yamaha App does a brilliant job of controlling the pair as a remote also. Tech nonsense - AV Amplifier Bluray Player Pics of my actual pair - They're in pretty good nick. I think they cost me around £700 for the pair, I bought them at different times but they can't be two years old really. Anyway, that doesn't matter, I'm after £400 for the pair, or £325 the amp and £125 the player. ALTHOUGH... I have a dire weakness for old amps and old speakers, 70's and the bigger the better, also happy to trade up etc, whatever interesting, I just have no use for these guys for a long time. Let me know!

    WTD - Double width rack

    It seems a decent double width rack is near on impossible to find. I would like it to be black, doesn't have to be fancy just not awful to look at. An Atacama Equinox TV stand (3 shelves ideally) would be perfect. If anyone has one to sell, send me a picture and sell it to me Much love. Carl.
