  1. Audience 70's still available. Will try Ebay soon and hope it's better than my experience trying to sell these on Gumtree, which was literally a long line of time wasters and scammers.
  2. Audience 40's now sold. Audience 70's are still available and now asking £300 collected, or arrange your own courier collection as they're double boxed ready to go.
  3. Or not, as PM isn't working for me... just keeps dropping me back to "Compose new" when I click "Send". Maybe you could try to PM me and I'll see if I can reply? Thanks. (tried with Chrome and Opera, same result, not working in either)
  4. <bump> Open to offers over £300.
  5. And some pics of the Audience 40's. I have the grilles and original boxes, but not the foam port bungs. There are a couple of small marks on top of one of them (see pic) and the usual spike marks on the bottom side of both speakers from when they were stand mounted. Asking £100 collected for the Audience 40's, or £80 if bought with the Audience 70's.
  6. <bump> and price reduction to £350. Also have a boxed pair of black ash Dynaudio Audience 40's (the small stand mount speakers) that could be included for an extra £80 if you needed matching surround speakers.
  7. It's extremely unlikely you'll be able to source this now, unless someone is breaking a 381i for parts. I managed to get what was probably the last digital input board supplied by Wadia for my 830 back in 2011 , but it took me about 6 months of chasing various Wadia dealers here and in the US. None of them including Wadia themselves had a clue about that stuff even back then as the company had already been bought over. I eventually got the input board from the US dealer (now closed) but it didn't come with the firmware chip required to make it work and they eventually just stopped replying to my messages about it. I managed to get a new firmware chip from the UK dealer (also now closed) but it hadn't been programmed correctly and didn't work! Luckily I know about that stuff and was able to work out what they'd done wrong when writing the chip and program another one myself that worked OK, but first I had to buy a specialist chip programmer to do it as they were using a quite unusual type of chip for the firmware.
  8. Black ash Dynaudio Audience 70 speakers for sale. Bought new by me in January 2000 for £1100, still have original receipt which will be supplied with speakers. These were quickly replaced with Dynaudio Contours for my front pair and these were used as surround speakers in the same system, so not used that often or driven hard. Still in great condition and working perfectly. Supplied with spikes, foam bungs for rear ports, also have original boxes + outer boxes for shipping. There are a few very small marks on bottom right corner of one speaker (pictured). Asking £400 collected from Glasgow or can meet/deliver locally. I still have original (double) boxes so alternatively buyer can arrange courier collection at their own expense and risk.
  9. Have a pair of black Dynaudio Audience 70's for sale. Bought new by me in January 2000 for £1100 (still have receipt!). Asking £400. They were originally my main stereo pair but were quickly moved to be rear surround speakers, so not driven hard and in great condition. I may have the original boxes, still need to check in the loft, otherwise collection or meet near Glasgow.
  10. Very nice, thanks for the pic. I think they do look nicer than my beech Contours, but I've already got front + centre so was looking for rears to be the same or similar. I've settled for these, hopefully picking up this week, they're maple but look fairly close to the Dynaudio beech.
  11. I could possibly be talked into a set of maple 1.8's if you decide to move them on. Just out of general interest do you have any better pics showing a close up of the wood? Thanks.
  12. Looking for a pair of Dynaudio contours, standmount (1.1 or 1.3) in Beech, Maple or Black, or the smaller floorstanding (1.8) in Beech only. Thanks.
  13. Really enjoyed this series for the 80's computer nostalgia and geek talk. Some of the technical stuff is far from realistic but I can forgive it that. Hope there's a second series but don't think it's been confirmed either way yet.
  14. Blue Ruin. Brilliant revenge thriller. Not out on DVD/Blu-ray yet but is available from streaming sites etc.
