    Horsham / Brookwood to York? Taxi!

    I think it's Brookwood I will ask the seller, he has two items for sale and both have different places Horsham and Brookwood thanks
  2. I don't suppose anybody lives in the Horsham / Brookwood area and travels up north regularly? I wanted to bid on a power amp on ebay and seller is in Horsham area and I live in York and he won't post! Worth an ask..thanks
  3. Hi anybody want a single Bryston? I have a buyer for one if i can sell the other? £1500. Drive your hi end centre speaker?
  4. Any Bryston 4bsst owners want more power?
  5. A pair of 19 inch with handles Bryston 7 bsst. A beast of a power amp and totally transparent and with all the grunt to drive any speakers you may own. Can be subtle with finesse and then next minute it grabs your speakers with a vice like grip. Maybe your last quest for perfection? They retail around £12,000 a pair now I'm downsizing and going more AV than hif and my new speakers are 97 db sensitivity and need around 32 watts to drive them to reference levels so I'm thinking the 600 watts into 8 ohms or 900 watts into 4 ohm might be a bit overkill? Excellent condition with original boxes and with warranty until 2024. I'm in York so would prefer collection or could deliver or meet half way etc and at a last push would post but would have to be fully insured. £4000 for the pair Reduced for quick sale £3000

    Wanted - bloody good speakers for little dosh

    I have a pair of mint kef reference model 2 with original boxes. The bass drivers were refoamed about three years ago. If I told you they were 2 weeks old you would believe me they are in that good condition. They are in Santos rosewood finish. Which has a zebreno type of grain which makes it a bit more modern looking than the other finishes. I may sell?

    Deciding on two sets of speakers ?

    But speakers placed near a wall start to have boundary effect, the bass will increase? If they are passive speakers there is no way to turn the bass down as in a sat /subwoofer

    What levels does it produce 37hz? I've heard "full range speakers" that produce bass but as soon as you turn up the volume the bass volume lags behind?

    Full range as in 20hz to 20,000 or down to 40hz?

    But bigger full range speakers need space around them? You can not put them up against a wall? Even more so if they are rear ported. Try telling the wife you need your speakers 3 foot from a wall? I think speaker manufacturers have missed out not designing speakers that are more accommodating to where they are positioned? Or more flexibility in where they can be positioned

    They are not many full range speakers around? If we are talking 20hz to 20,000hz and the ones which can do that are not suitable for English size rooms....hence a subwoofer

    It was designed as a home cinema speaker really, I'm trying to work how good they are with music? They are very impressive, they look massive in the flesh and all the components are over engineered and heavy. The designer is an American who started the whole thing off on the mainly American AVSforums web site. I think they were sold as a no profit venture They work out around £300 each after delivery and all vat and import duty. If they were £3000 each I think your brain would be saying they are fantastic. But because they are so cheap you keep having doubts.

    They were designed to be used with a subwoofer even though having a 12 inch driver. I think speakers nowadays are designed to look pretty and be wife friendly, small footprint. In the 1960 speaker seemed to have bigger drivers and gradually they have got smaller and narrower in design. I listened to Daft Punk on them today, never listened to Daft Punk in my life not my type of music but I played the full album and the speakers produced a hypnotic sound I was impressed...
