  1. 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
  2. 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).
  3. 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
  4. 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.

    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.
  6. These drivers were purchased with the intention of building a pair of FH3s however, I never got around to it and now is your chance to own them. No longer available, they are superb drivers and can be used in many full range designs. They are mint and boxed in their original packaging,and have never been connected. These can be yours for £50 plus £6 P&P (UK only please) If you would like any more information please drop me a PM. I am located in Northern Ireland. Many thanks,
  7. 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.
  8. Pair of black ash cabinets in decent condition. Plus 4x grilles in good condition. Driver mounting screws and grille fittings included. Be quick to say if you want them!
  9. 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
  10. FOR SALE £495 Spendor S5e floor standing loudspeakers in cherry wood veneer. One owner from new and in very good condition. Complete with Naim NAC A5 cable links and instructions. I have made a gallery of photos here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/2VVhF3p7X7msZ5QW7 What Spendor said about the speakers: The Spendor S5e is the ideal solution for everyone who demands superb sound from an extremely compact discrete floor standing loudspeaker. The S5e has two individual 140mm Spendor drive units. One driver handles the delicate midrange and upper bass. The second bass unit handles the very low frequencies and it is engineered to match the 3D linear flow port. The result is a small loudspeaker which delivers convincing punch and weight and a surprisingly 'big' sound. The Spendor S5e has excellent efficiency and an easy to drive load so you don't need a big powerful amplifier. With our linear flow reflex technology you can even place the cabinet very close to a rear wall and the bass will remain clean and controlled. The Spendor 'S' series loudspeakers feature many innovations. Linear flow port technology for non-turbulent low frequency air flow and predictable bass response, Spendor 'e' drive unit with stiff, light internally damped ep38 polymer cones for ultra low colouration, and dynamically damped cabinents which reduce energy re-radiation to inaudible levels. Each model delivers a balanced energy output to guarantee a consistent sound and a vivid seamless sound stage in a diversity of living environments. This technology is complemented by elegant modern styling. Whether you listen to music or film, stereo or surround sound, there is a Spendor loudspeaker system to match your individual lifestyle. There are a couple of marks to the cabinets which are shown in the last two images of the photo gallery. I also don't have the original boxes as they were thrown out (by mistake) after a recent house move. I'm happy to demonstrate at my home in Monmouthshire, Wales. .
  11. SOLD Nice pair of Impulse H2 in a darkish wood finish. This particular pair went down very well at Scalford in 2015, I am told, and have had several previous owners here on the wam (so you might recognise them). The original bass drivers have been replaced by the ones used in the later Ta'us model. They have rubber surrounds (as opposed to the foam surrounds used in the original drivers) so should be good for quite a few years yet. In very good shape for a 25+ year old pair of speakers. A few minor marks here and there, but nothing dramatic. Looking and sounding great. It took a pair of Zu Definition 2 to unseat them (and it took me a while to decide which ones to keep). Apologies for the rubbish photo - I'll upload some decent ones tomorrow. Price is £800 firm. EDIT: I could be interested in a swap/PX for a decent network player/streamer or some decent solid state amplification. Postage is out of the question, I'm afraid, so it will need to be either collection from Northumberland (in which case I will be very happy to demonstrate) or perhaps a meet up/wam taxi arrangement if we can sort it. I remember promising someone first refusal if I ever decided to sell these, but being the stupid old git that I am, I can't remember who that was. Jog my memory if it was you (and you are still interested) .

    New speakers

    My wanted ad was at risk of turning into a discussion thread, so thought I'd post here instead of bumping it again. My new Kensington GRs arrived yesterday, courtesy of hifiguy, and just wanted to say thanks for the comments and advice in here. So far so (very) good. I've not even put the spikes on yet while I play with positioning, and I gather they need a good few hours play to really open up, so I'm hoping there's even more to come. Sadly the grilles have had to go back on to protect from little fingers...
  13. 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

  15. Hi everyone, I'm generally happy with the sound of my system, the problem came when I walked into a B&O shop and heard the Beolab 50s. The mids and highs were so much clearer and didn't get nearly as "screechy" yet sounded much more crisp at very high volumes. I'm just wondering what I could do to replicate their sound (short of paying £26k). Any thoughts appreciated. Picture of setup (listed below) attached: Speakers: Focal 726V Amp: Nad C370 (cleaned up about 2 years ago) Dac: Irdac 2 Sub: Homebuilt, 2x peerless xls10, 2x 300w rms digital plate amps. Ported, tuned to 20hz. I'm thinking something like 2nd hand Adam Audio Gamma / B&W 802d s2/3 but would be very open to suggestions. Budget is as low as possible to replicate / rival the sound, max probably 10k including electronics. Thanks in advance!
  16. Hi all Has anyone tried these speakers out or had experience of them? I would be interested in feedback as I know of a demo pair for sale but they are 100s of miles away and would like to hear your opinions as to whether its worth the journey. cheers
  17. I have a pair of PMC GB1 speakers for sale, the cabinets are Light Oak. Collection from Rochester,Kent. £950 ono Speakers are in very good condition with floor mounts but no boxes.
  18. Hi there. For sale is excellent pair of Kef R100 bookshelf speakers. In rosewood finish. Great condition with only few minor dinks and scratch on front as per pictures but this is under the grille. In rosewood finish which is not for sale anywhere anymore. Dont have original box but will pack safely for delivery. Want £250 by bank transfer ideally. Collection from eastbourne or can post for £15
  19. For sale, good condition pair of ProAc Studio 148's in Cherry. Sold with all packaging, instructions, spikes and terminal links. Buyer collects from Fareham, Hampshire. Now £800
  20. £850 Audio Physic Sitara 25 loudspeakers for sale in very good condition with original boxes and accessories. Comes in piano gloss white. Original price £1,950 + £250 for the white gloss option. Typically offered for £1000+ on eBay. New they are going for £2,760 see: https://www.audioemotion.co.uk/audio-physic-sitara-25-loudspeakers-443-p.asp Bought new in 2008, but only used for around six years. I bought them in Barcelona at Style Sound, an official Audio Physic dealer. Unfortunately these floor standers are a bit too big for our little cottage lounge, so had to go for little box speakers without reflex tunnel at the back. I have had them paired with my Naim amp and later with my Croft amps which were both very good combinations. The white piano gloss is a beautiful finish (imo!) and repairable when scratched or chipped, where a wood finish would be damaged forever. I have had a few small nicks repaired, but this is very difficult to see, especially on the photos. 980mm/38.6” (H) x 147mm/5.8” (W) x 220mm/8.7” (D). Weight of 17Kg each. The speaker has a minimum impedance of 4 ohms, sensitivity of 89 dB, and frequency response of 36 Hz – 40 kHz, with a recommended power handling of 20 – 120 watts. I am happy to demonstrate at home when picked up. Amersham area, Bucks. Please feel free to PM me with any questions or to request more photos.
  21. £800, £700, audition/pickup in Brighton welcome. Will meet halfway in SE/London. No packing so reluctant to send even by courier. Wilson Benesch Actor loudspeakers in cherry. The first grown up speakers I ever had were S/H WB Orators and when these big brothers became available I had to have them. On Wammer advice they were replaced with Audionote AN-E 3-4 years ago and they have sat essentially unused since then. Spikes, terminal connecting plates and photocopied manual included. 88dB sensitivity. 110 cm tall (with sloping top), 23 cm wide, 37 cm deep. Approx 48 kg. Huge WAF (sample size n=1). Some dings and imperfections, nothing noticeable from listening position. Black bases could do with touching up (see terminals photo). Some historic love from the 'Wam:

  23. Bang & Olufsen Beolab 3 speakers Pair On Ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bang-Olufsen-Beolab-3-speakers-Pair-Excellent-condition-Worldwide-Shipping/132880970722?

  25. JIM ROGERS JR150 LOUDSPEAKERS, in Immaculate Condition I am relisting these as I am now including a beautiful pair of custom made stands. These were made for me by Russ Collinson of Layers of Beauty at a cost of over £300 and perfectly compliment the 150's. The side cheeks are 22m thick solid Indian Rosewood and look just gorgeous These have been my pride & joy for many years and I NEVER thought I would sell them but a house move means they have to go. Not my main speakers and so rarely used apart from the occasional swap when I have changed my main speakers. These still sound wonderful even after all these years and as you can see they are in exceptional condition. Even the leather inlay to the tops is still pretty much perfect. Collection from Berkhamsted HP4 (cash only if collecting) £599 collected. On ebay for £699 I will consider shipping at buyers risk
