  1. These excellent sounding little standmount / bookshelf speakers are finished in satin black ash real wood veneer. They're in excellent condition with only one tiny mark to one rear corner. Grilles excellent with all pegs present. Fully functioning and a very good sound. All panels (except the bottoms) are shown in the photos which form part of the description. 75 GBP - can be posted at cost in the UK or picked up near Chester or at the Wam Show, Kegworth on 20 March 2020. If collected at the Wam show I will contribute the 5% charity donation for the bring and buy stall.
  2. B&W CDM1 mark 1 speakers In good shape overall - no issues and sound great. Grilles and tweeter covers are intact and not bumped at all One of them has been next to a door I think because it's got a couple of bumps on one side but they are cosmetic and not structural. Looking for £250 collected
  3. £995 (or £990 and a pint) to that man over there with too many speakers already. Most of you know the story; if not, you can do the search thing. "Spare" piano black ones now up for adoption, though I won't part with them until after they have strutted their stuff at the Kegworth Show on 15th March, most probably feeding off some Sugden goodness. Various photos here don't do them justice, must take some fresh ones: From original seller (I am the second owner; the first had them as his main/only speakers for 35 years...) Alongside Nick's Spendor Classic 200's Alongside my teak pair (bought from Manny of this parish, brought back to spec and now comfortably ensconced in Kendal apartment ) In Fanthorpe's demo room sucking on Sugden Not as imposing in the flesh as they can look in photos where the height is what attracts attention; in the wood, they are tall, slim and IMHO elegant. They also sound lovely; if I mention big soundstage you might think that is as much to do with upstream components but I'm going to mention it anyway. As @rabski reminded us some time ago: "Graham Tricker described them as "...probably the least compromised loudspeaker we have ever heard", which is quite something coming from the man behind Tron". Come along and have a listen. Bring your bulging wallet or Paypal details to avoid disappointment. I'll shake hands on a sale any time from when they arrive in Kegworth on Sat 14th but they can't be taken until 5pm Sun 15th. You know what to do.
  4. FOR SALE Vienna Acoustics Bach Floorstanding Speakers Beech Finish Fully working order Very refined and detailed sound Excellent grilles with all mounting pegs present Good condition but with a few light marks - please check the photos as these form part of the description Part filled with kiln dried sand as per manufacturer's instructions Heavy so collection only from near Chester Could probably bring to the Wam Show on 15 March Also possible meet up anywhere between Chester and Birmingham / Newbury / Reading as long as you're patient to find a mutually convenient date £325
  5. Royd Abbot floor standers in real wood veneer ( with scrapes !! ) the grill fabric will need replacing too ( I have some in brown) Please be aware that these are not mint cosmetically but I think quite presentable at the price . One broken grill peg . They sound bloomin lovely. collection in person only though. £150
  6. I am selling my Living Voice OBX RW3 Speakers - Santos Rosewood. The speakers are in excellent condition, the external crossovers are black and have a couple of small marks on them, one careful owner from new with original packaging etc. The reviews speak for themselves. RRP £12,000 asking £4,995
  7. *Edit - these are sold now*. For sale are my beloved ATC SCM20PSL speakers in Walnut. They are in absolutely mint condition and sound incredible! I am only selling them because I am moving, and now have space for the big boys - SCM50s! These are two years old and come with all packaging / manuals etc. They come with Track Audio 600 stands with inbuilt circular spirit level, and perform miracles isolating them from whatever they are placed on. I do not have the boxes for the stands unfortunately. New, the speakers cost £3,770/pair, for both I am asking £2,750. Please follow this link showing a bit more detail of them in my system. Manufacturers detail is here for the ATCs and here for the stands. I am based in Brighton, and would prefer collection, with payment by bank transfer or cash on collection. If postage was absolutely necessary then buyer would have to arrange and cover the full cost of that. If you are interested, or would like any more details, please let me know. Cheers, Bob
  8. On the look out for a pair of Quad 11L speakers. Must be in very good condition, preferably with all original packaging. Any colour/finish considered. Will need to be delivered to Bury St Edmunds or local collection. Many Thanks in advance.

    Thiel CS 2 2

    https://www.stereophile.com/content/thiel-cs2-2-loudspeaker-john-atkinson “From the very first note of the very first record played via the Thiels, I was bowled over by the ease of the speaker's sound” ”It was in the area of midrange and treble transparency that the Thiel perhaps scored its most longlasting impression” “Normally, the critic ends up with a shopping list of faults that he just has to assemble into some kind of logical order. In the case of the Thiel CS2 2, however, it seemed that the longer I listened for flaws, the less I heard—an enjoyable task for the music lover, but a frustrating one for the professional reviewer. At its price, the CS2 2 is a sonic bargain. Beautifully finished, with a sound that is smooth, tonally well-balanced, and extended at both extremes, it is musically one of the most satisfying loudspeakers I've heard” ...... .......... I dug out that review when I spotted a pair for sale, even though it's more likely than not they will just be passing through. Intriguing design, fabulous cabinets, with binding posts underneath giving a smooth rear to the cabinet. Installed in the lounge this morning alongside the ATC SCM40A's. I expected them to be slightly smaller than the SCM40A's but as you can see they're not. Obviously sub-optimal positioning so I won't be commenting on soundstage! I've only listened to a couple of Jesse Cook tracks but they're really rather nice. Crisp and clear in the highs and mids - to the point where I'd need to listen longer and more analytically to spot weaknesses vs the ATC's, which was a surprise. Very nice shape to the bass though this is the biggest difference from the SCM40A's: it's strong, possibly too strong, but (a) I've yet to isolate them from the oak-on-concrete floor and (b) I know some people and some types of music which these would suit fabulously. Will report back further. Windows make geting a proper photo a pain. The rear shot makes the wood look lighter than it is, side shot is accurate.
  10. Pair of spendor A6 award winning speakers. One careful owner in smoke, pet, child free home. Excellent condition, small ding on top of one speaker - see photo- can only see close up. I bought new from Sevenoaks around 8 years ago. Have original packaging, grilles etc. Fantastic sound, only selling as going active. Looking for £800 ono pls
  11. Good condition considering their age, only a couple of marks to one foam surround, wear on some edges of bases and missing one logo. Just cosmetic and only noticeable on close inspection. Cloth recently replaced with new. Functionally, they sound great, no rubbing on drivers and tweeters in good nick. Looking for £130. Happy to demo when collected, bring your favourite music! Cash on collection only from Dagenham, East London. Could post at a push, anticipate ~£20 for an insured courier (a decent one like ParcelForce, not MyHermes who'll wiggle out of any insurance claim...)
  12. Happy new year to you all. One of these beauties has a fault in that it makes high pitched noises ( like a radio out of tune ) I tested the other quickly on a crappy micro Hifi and it appears to work properly. The original quad stands are included, cosmetically they are in very good condition except for one small hole on the side of the cloth cover . long power cables are also included. I will post photos once I get a chance and if there is any interest. I’m hoping to get back what they owe me . £350 NOW at £200, COLLECTION BEFORE SUNDAY collection from Milton Keynes
  13. Helping a friend to sell his Mission QX-2 speakers. They are in walnut finish. They are just a few weeks old and, as such, are in mint condition with all original packaging. Brilliant speakers for the money. £275 but open to sensible offers. Prepared to deliver but please ask for a quote. Alternatively, cash on collection or prepared to deliver close to Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
  14. We have recently moved to a small townhouse and the listening room (lounge) has been drastically reduced in size from 8x4x3 metres to roughly 4x3.5x2.3 metres with the speakers firing across the 3.5 approx 1.5 metres apart. My current Rogers LS6 on Atacama SL stands have been banned on the basis they are too big, fair enough they do dominate a bit... I was thinking of a small pair of floor-stands that would work well with my QUAD 34/405 setup, they would have to be able to cosy up to the rear wall as there is limited space so probably no rear firing ports. Budget wise would ideally keep it under a grand and more than happy to buy second-hand, any suggestions greatly received. Oh yes, nearly forgot... have to be Wife friendly, ideally nice quality veneer.
  15. Inherited these but want to sell them as they are not my style. Others may find them lovely. Unused but open box. We wired them up for a quick listen. Lovely, warm, retro sound. Beautiful condition. Like new. Comes with original box, packaging and documents. Will deliver for free. £300 or nearest offer. Thank you.
  16. Revel M105 speakers with matching stands in very good condition New these are around £1800 with stands, asking £650 Collection from North London N17 only I'm afraid, no boxes
  17. Good evening all, Wonder if I could ask for some recommendations, please. I've recently bought the Audiolab 6000a and the accompanying 6000cdt. I've been running it through some KEF R100s - which are great little speakers - but I need a bit more scale, insight and separation in a 4.5 metre squared room. Has any body got any recommendations to add to an audition list. As I said, room is 4.5 x 4.5 metres and well-furnished. I listen mostly to classical, chamber, choral and acoustic music so booming bass is not required. A natural, airy and neutral tone is. I like to hear every instrument and voice in its own well-defined space but without harsh metallic highs. I've tried floorstanders but the room simply isn't big enough or suitable enough. Initial thoughts are: KEF LS50, Dali Opticon 2, B & W 606 Any other suggestions or views on the above are very welcome. Thanks in advance for your help.
  18. Immaculate pair of the superb Contour 30's in rosewood gloss. Purchased new from Audio T in Jan 2019 - RRP currently £5,750 These have been meticulously cared for and are in immaculate condition. For example, I carefully air dust the cabinets to prevent scratching of the beautiful gloss finish and keep the grills on when not in use to prevent dust accumulation on the dome tweeters. This pair are as exactly they shipped from the factory - there is not a single mark anywhere on these speakers! All packaging, materials, documentation + original wooden shipping crates included. Covered by transferrable 8 year Dynaudio warranty. Collection preferable as boxed weight is ~100kg £3500
  19. Zingali Zero Otto floorstanding loudspeakers, satin black finish For sale due to upgrade to active speakers. The Italian Zingali Zero Otto speakers are a high efficiency design (93 dB / W) using an Omniray horn tweeter and two 8” bass / mid. Very rarely seen for sale on the used market. In great condition, no obvious marks on the cabinet, some very discreet scuffs near the feet where they have been moved. New owner will not be disappointed. I have the original cartons. I am the second owner, having bought three years ago. These were new in 2013. They are ported on the bottom face which makes room placement easy. These are fine in a modest sized room; previous 2 x 8” speakers boomed badly in my room whereas these Zingalis do not. Their sound is gorgeous, dynamic, deep and fast bass with detailed and open mid / top; natural and musically satisfying. Sounded great with my 70W valve amp and would probably be happy with either smaller SETs or monster amps. Biwire terminals, original links included. Current model (Zero Evo) retailing at £4,995. Asking £2,350. £1,950. Zingali manufacture some seriously high-end speakers. But I believe they do not enjoy playing the usual hifi ‘game’ having lower dealer margins and no fawning to the press. Hence reviews are very hard to come by. Some links which I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpWZZhKp-q8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYBoEWyzLpo http://musicroomnewsdesk.blogspot.com/2013/07/a-visit-to-zingali-acoustics.html http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/manufacture/zingali.htm https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/83177-anyone-heard-zingali-sei-or-otto/ Some bumf: ZERO OTTO Zero point Zero marks the starting point of the Zingali loudspeaker range - and of everything for that matter. However, Zingali's Zero series is anything but the typical "entry-level" product, as it incorporates a full-blown Omniray implementation along with premium crossover/cabinet materials, supreme craftmanship and the same maker's devotion sensed as one comes near a flagship model. What sets it as the entry point is the fact that it's designed to fit a significantly more home-oriented audio/cinema application, where not everything has to evolve around the audio setup. Zero loss In essence, you get everything that Zingali is known for; playfulness, highest crest dynamics, shockingly natural tones, true-to-life dispersion of the projected soundscape, looks that's hard to beat... The exotic, the eccentric, all those attributes that grow in harmonic fusion as we are reaching for the upper (no) limit of the Zingali range may be what you are missing; or are you? TECH SPECS Enclosure type: Ported, bass reflex Compression driver: 1” - Coil 25 mm Woofer: 2 x 8” Coil 50 mm Horn: Omniray GZ 8” Power RMS: 300 W (AES) Nominal impedance: 6 Ω Frequency response: 32 Hz – 20 kHz Crossover frequency: 1200 Hz 12 dB/Oct Sensitivity: 93 dB (1W/1mt) Dispersion: 110° (-6 dB) Dimensions (H x W x D, mm): 1160 x 250 x 380 Cabinet: mdf 19 mm, mdf 30 mm Finishes: Cabinet/Panel: Satin Black – Lacquer White – Lacquer Black Piano Horn: (Cherry–Walnut–Wengè–Natural) Lacquer – Satin Black – Lacquer White – Piano Black Net weight: 28 Kg each Collection and demo welcome near Tewkesbury. I could post after cleared funds but these are very heavy and large, and with full insurance could be expensive. I am in need of a pre-amp for my new active speakers. I’m really after a balanced valve pre (e.g. Modwright) but may consider something else to tide me over until the right one comes along. So, I may be willing to consider something in part exchange. Also selling Octave V70SE valve amp, see separate advert. Sorry the photos aren’t great, I missed the last of the daylight. I may try to take some better ones soon.
  20. Kralk TDB - 10 professional 3 way speakers in black , suitable for all music types designed for large rooms. Heavy duty stand are included. These speakers are hand made and dimensions are H 99 W32 D 29 weight 20kg each unit. 150 watts RMS into 8 ohms no covers with these as it would spoil the look imo. These speakers are in flawless condition and boxed in original packaging. Unfortunately they did not suit the small loft room I currently use and no room to keep long term. I am based in St Albans in Hertfordshire They are currently £850 new and made to order new. £600 or very close offer thanks
  21. Reluctantly selling my beloved EgglestonWorks Rosa's which I've owned from new. These are superb Hi Fi speakers with fantastic, tightly controlled bass and powerful overall presentation. The layout of the drivers is straightforward with a single tweeter, dual midrange drivers in individual quasi-transmission line enclosures. The low end is handled by dual 6” drivers mounted in a shared bass-reflex design, with rear-firing dual ports. Sides are solid black Italian granite which reduces cabinet resonance and provides an unsual and beautiful look. 2x6" Bass drivers, 2x6" Midrange and a 1" Fabric Dome Tweeter These speakers need a good quality amp to drive them, preferably 80+ watts per channel. With the right amps and quality cables they're hard to beat. Read the review by Hobomoto here: http://www.audioreview.com/product/speakers/floorstanding-speakers/egglestonworks/rosa.html They come with removable mesh covers, not shown in the pictures. SPECIFICATIONS: Tweeter: Single – 1” fabric dome. 
Midrange: Dual – 6” Bass: Dual – 6” 
 Frequency Response: -3dB @30Hz – 24,000Hz
. Efficiency: 87dB. 
 Impedance: 8 Ohms nominal, 5 Ohms minimum. 
 Footprint: 9” x 18” x 38” H
. Weight: 110lbs each. Owing to the size and weight of these speakers I cannot ship. However, I will deliver within a 50 mile radius of Leatherhead (POA). Or buyer may collect from Leatherhead Surrey. These speakers are a steal at £2600
  22. ProAc D18 Maple Floorstanding Speakers - £1100 ONO I'm retiring and going travelling so it's time to sell the "stack" This ad is for the ProAc D18 maple speakers that you probably don't need an introduction to as they were WhatHiFi Speakers of the Year for £1500+ in 2011 when I bought them. I loved them then and I love them now for their sweet crystal-clear sound. They are in excellent condition with only the tiniest micro-scratches that you would expect from a pair of speakers that have been looked after and not moved since the day they arrived. The only issue is a slight colour difference with the one that was closer to the window being a smidge lighter. They will be packed safely back into their original boxes - collection only please from near Banbury
  23. This is the most recent Studio SM100 speakers of UK's speaker manufacturer Proac. Speakers are as new and where bought March 2019 and Proac gives a 5 year warranty period on its speakers. Comes complete with all packaging, manual and proof of purchase. The speakers were used in a smoke free home. Speakers are sold without stands. Reason for selling is that I'm moving to floorstanders. Speakers will be shipped with tracking (I am based in Belgium) Speaker specifications - Proac SM100: Colour: Black Ash 2-way, 8-ohm 1 x 165mm bass/midrange driver / 1 x 25mm soft silk tweeter Sensitivity: 88db/W/m. Amp power: 30 - 150 Watt Frequency range: 35Hz-30Khz. Dimensions (HxWxD): 41 x 20 x 25 cm Weight: 12 Kg Date of purchase: March 2019. Current listprice: 2700€ (2000 GBP) My price: 1200 1150 GBP (incl. shipping to UK or EU country).
  24. For sale is a mint pair of Spendor D7 Speakers in cherry. They sound great, purchased from new during 2016 Can obviously be heard and seen before purchase, clearly these will be collection only from southampton as very large and heavy. These truly are an awesome set of speakers Will be boxed in original boxes. Looking for £1600 for these but all reasonable offers will be considered
  25. I recently completed this pair of SB Acoustics 16 MTM speakers, from the kit available from Jantzen Audio in Denmark. The cabinets are made from 22 mm MDF, veneered with Birds Eye Maple, lacquered and polished. The footprint is 22 cm x 27 cm which is about the same a a stand mounted pai would be. They sound superb, deep tight bass, mid is very transparent and the tweeter is about as good as it gets - just my opinion, of course. HEre is a link to the Troels Gravesen web page: http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/SBA-16-MTM.htm I have measured the frequency response using REW and got the same result as Mr Gravesen so they work as expected. I have pictures of the build if prospective buyers are interested. I am happy to audition them, I live near Bedford. Price is £1850 and pick up only.
