  1. Pair of the newer Larsen 4.2 speakers in Satin Black finish. Designed to work up against rear walls if you need some discreet but big sounding speakers. In great condition. Few smudge marks shown are fingerprints due to the satin finish. One has a very small scratch as I've tried to show but only shows in certain light. Comes with the original boxes and packaging etc. Looking for £550. Courier Delivery £25 or can deliver locally.

  2. No worries, good luck with the search!
  3. I have a pair of R9s if that is of interest 😀
  4. Just to add, I would be interested in a Bryston BCD-1 or similar CDP in Part Exchange. (long shot I know...)
  5. They are excellent, my only real reason for selling is I have a very strong ~33Hz bass peak in my room and these have deep bass extension so unless I used DSP they don't work as well as they could. In my old flat, the room was a little bigger and L shaped, they worked a treat. I've bought a pair of little Larsen 4.2s, while my DIY open baffle project will be resurected in the Spring.
  6. Having a bit of a rationalisation so my Rega R9 speakers are up for sale. I bought these back in 2014 and they had been out on long term loan with a few people as I can't quite get them to work well in my room(s). They are a '3-way design' with an external crossover mounted to the rear of the cabinet. The 8" bass driver has no crossover, and used in a transmission line enclosure. The classic Rega RR125 mid bass is used along with a Morel 1" tweeter and an additional 19mm Scanspeak tweeter. The crossover has a bass attenuation option to help room integration. I would describe them as grown up versions of the smaller R-Series. I have had the R1, R3, R7, Alya & Jura, which were all great but generally lacking in bass depth and treble smoothness. These R9s are a step up, superb fast bass, still easy to drive and reasonably efficient at aroun 89dB. They are in great condition, in Cherry veneer. One has a small chip on the top rear corner, the other a smaller ding on the same corner. I don't have the grilles to hand but I'll dig them out. There are a few marks on the outriggers, the original spikes will be supplied. These don't come up often but I'm looking for £1300. Collection only from Faringdon, Nr Swindon. I can delivery locally, if needed.

  7. I have had two Bryston B60Rs now, which you can separate the pre and power sections. This was useful for me so I could use the Pre side, into a MiniDSP for Active Crossovers and then a pair of channels back into the Bryston power amp side. really useful design feature. I am now using it as a straight integrated amp as the DIY speakers are packed away for the Winter.
  8. Only 220V and no CE marking....
  9. @newlash09 Yes Open Baffle, its a 6" Wide Range driver and 12" Bass, so they are quite small for OBs. There is around 0.5m from the back of the drivers to the rear walls. The room is around 3m x 5m I think.
  10. Cheers, I would keep it but It would only be gathering dust as I have gone down the DIY route once again.
  11. I have the EXR version, in hindsight probably should have gone for the full 'XR' model as for the frame on its own, only about £50 more. I saved some money by not buying the shelves with it and just getting some 20mm plywood cut to size and used that. I'm very happy with it though, nice and flexible with the shelf configuration and I like the industrial but lightweight look (not too oil rig). System by Robert Seymour, on Flickr
