  1. Thanks Phil, as I say I am open to sensible offers, and £1450 is quite close.
  2. I am amazed that I still have these for sale as they are really great speakers win exceptional condition. I am open to sensible offers, I am happy to answer any questions you may have, so feel free to contact me.
  3. Bump. As I said I am open to offers as I wan these sold so I can move on. Thanks
  4. Back for sale due to time waster. Please feel free to make sensible offers and negotiate a final price, but only do so if you really intend to purchase, a holding deposit will be required. Price reduced to £1750.

    Vincent SV-234 amplifier

    Yes, it is extremely good, in fact as I have it at my home I have been listening to it quite a bit and to be honest unless you spent quite a lot more, and I mean 3 or 4 times more you would not get much benefit. It gives my rather expensive 300b mono blocks a run for their money, and comes a close second. Surely someone wants to upgrade to something rather special?
  6. These are truly a great pair of speakers, don't miss the opportunity to get a really good pair.

    Vincent SV-234 amplifier

    Whilst the SV-234 is solid state it is designed to lean towards a valve sounding amp, I can vouch for this having compared it with the £9K pair of Renaissance RA-01 300B mono blocks. For the price the Vincent SV-234 it is an extremely accomplished amplifier and I suspect would surprise quite a few on it how musical it is. It produces some lovely lower end as well as great mid and top. Whoever buys this will get a great amp.
  8. I have amended the advert as above to make it clear where these lovely speakers are located for viewing and collection.
  9. Yes, just down the road from Lyme Regis in Dorset, I’d be willing to meet a buyer within 150 miles with them.
  10. I am selling on behalf of my best friend his Vincent SV-234 solid state amplifier, he has owned it from new and used it for about 18 months before purchasing a valve amplifier. It has not been used for about 3 years until I tried it in my systems last week. The Vincent SV-234 is an extremely accomplished amplifier and is designed and voiced to give a reproduction as near as possible to a valve sound from a solid state amplifier. I can vouch for this having compared it directly with my pair of valve 300B mono block amps. The sound it produces is extremely good and punches well above its price tag, as reported in several reviews. It has its own remote control as shown. The unit is unmarked and looks like new, and comes with its original packaging as shown. I am more than happy to demonstrate it at my home. It is class A up to 10Watt, which is what you are likely to be using most of the time. Technical Specifications Frequency response: 20 Hz - 50 kHz +/- 0.5 dB, Nominal Output Power RMS / 4 Ohm: 2 x 289 Watt, Nominal Output Power Class A / 8 Ohm: 2 x 10 Watt, Total harmonic distortion: < 0.1 % (1 kHz, 1 Watt), Input sensitivity: 400 mV, Signal-Noise ratio: > 90 dB Input impedance: 47 kOhm, Input: 4 x Stereo RCA, 1 x Stereo XLR, 1 x Stereo RCA Main In, 2 x 3,5 mm Jack sockets (Power Control), Outputs: 2 x 4 Speaker Terminal, 1 x Stereo RCA Rec Out, 1 x Pre Out RCA, 2 x 3,5 mm Jack sockets (Power Control), Colour: Black or silver, Weight: 22 kg, Dimensions (WxHxD): 430 x 142 x 450 mm Price is £1300 and collection can be arranged either in East Devon near Lyme Regis or near Dorking, Surrey. This unit is very heavy and if you require it to be courier then this cost, insurance and arrangements are up to the purchaser. Please PM me to discuss or arrange a viewing.
  11. Price reduced to £1550. I may regret this but I am selling my lovely Impulse H2's as my best friend has offered me his Acoustic Vienna's that he has had sitting around for 3 years. Unfortunately I cannot keep the H2's as well as the Vienna's and so the H2's have to go up for sale. Plus my better half certainly will not entertain 3 pairs of speakers in the house. A bit about the H2's, I purchased them about two years ago from a professional musician, he had two pairs as he previously had two residences, one abroad, and when that changed sold these. When he purchased them he had the mid-range and bass drivers professionally refurbished, I think about 8 years ago, which involved having the driver ring foams replaced. I believe that the only other thing that has been done is the front speaker cover cloth has been replaced with a much thinner one than original, it is an excellent black match and is not noticeable, it probably improves the sound as well. The speaker cabinets are both in extremely good condition with no obvious scratches or damage to the oak veneer or the carcass, there are some minor cosmetic marks to the rears. The photos show clearly how good they are. Any body who is a keen on musicality from a HiFi system will probably know about Impulse H2's, they are a highly respected Horn loud speaker, with a mid-range horn at the top, a very good tweeter below and the Bass driver below that which is a horn and is ported out the bottom of the cabinet. They are a very, very musical speaker and I have found them to be very good on all types of music, and I listen to most genres. They have very good controlled low end bass, are well balanced and produce a very good soundstage. In my experience I would say they are more sensitive than stated below and I have easily driven them with my 24W mono block 300B Valve amps (and I use a passive pre-amp). Below taken from http://www.acoustica.org.uk/impulse/impulse.html "Impulse H2: Arguably the best of the lot. A derivative of the H1 which appears to have superceded it. Mostly handmade cabinet, same driver complement as H1, but a simplified bass horn folding leads to reduced cabinet volume with negligible loss of sensitivity and extension. Capable of stupendous bass quality and extension - although specified for cutoff at 40Hz, in-room measurements at home show extension flat down to 30Hz, -6dB at c.27Hz. Positioning close to the rear wall is recommended, but this speaker is remarkably unfussy about siting. Tractrix midhorn with driver open to rear and top, inverted-dome tweeter Sensitivity 95dB/W, 8ohm Drivers: 8.5" Seas bass; 4.5" Seas mid; Focal tweeter. Crossover ponts: 800Hz; 4Khz; 2nd order summed response. Size: 1160mm H x 270mm W x 480mm D Finishes: Rosewood or Oak with cloth inserts Weight: approx 65KG / 140lb a Pair" they weigh around 30kg each so postage would be very expensive hence pick up only, from Seaton Devon, just down the road from Lyme Regis in Dorset, I’d be willing to meet a buyer within 150 miles with them. I am very happy to demonstrate at my home, if you see and hear them then you are likely to buy. Please note these have not been played around with and are as described. The price is £1750 (please note this does not include the Chord jumpers in the photos, I will supply high quality jumper speaker cable) I am also selling, on behalf of the same friend his Vincent SV-234 solid state amplifier, advertised on AOS, which works very well with the H2's, in case you are looking for a complete high end system. Any question please PM me. Note they are stood on platforms on rollers that I use to make it easier to move them, the purchaser is welcome to have these.
  12. Well I am nearing the end of my second day with Pete's suspension upgrade on my Gyrodec with Orbe platter and have listened to 5 records and I am beginning to realise that its not just the clarity, detail and soundstage that have improved greatly but also the timing is now very stable. By this I mean that as wow and flutter has obviously been reduced it has resulted in much greater stability, thus everything feels snappier with more punch, it makes for a lot of toe tapping. Obviously this is more evident with certain types of music. Piano and organ are greatly improved, this was very clear on Genesis - Foxtrot(a big favourite of mine), the organ being clearly defined in the mix, and no longer slightly fuzzy(for want of a better description). So I am a happy bunny. Back to the music
