For sale - Shahinian Arcs audiophile loudspeakers. £500

After many years of trouble-free enjoyable listening, I have recently replaced my Shahinian Arcs and so they need to find a new home. 

I was reluctant to list them on eBay as thought most users there wouldn’t know what they are looking at. A Google search found this forum where a Shahanian owners thread exists so seemed ideal. Rather than write my own amateur review of the characteristics of these legendary speakers, I advise anyone interested to do your own search - this will turn up several reviews, all of which positive. Retail price of the current model of these speakers is £6,500. 

I don’t know the exact age of the speakers but I have had them for about 20 years. They have had one previous owner, I bought them as pre-owned from New Audio Frontiers in Loughborough (no longer trading). The previous owner had the speakers sprayed black as you’ll see in the photos. The only damage is a small tear in the diaphragm of one unit which doesn’t affect the audio performance, I have provided a close-up of the tear. 

I am very happy to provide a listening demonstration at my house in West Bridgford on the outskirts of Nottingham.

I once had a speaker with a tear like that. I had some brown gooey glue left over from a foam repair I did and put it on the back of the surround to hold them together as inconspicuously ad possible. It worked a treat for as long as I.had them, only a purist would have been concerned.

With a Welsh name like that, I just wish you were nearer :) Always wanted to try a set of these and at that money if they suited my system I could quite easily give them a long term good home. But too many ifs there unfortunately :(

Hi trane, I think that shipping to Hungary might be unpleasantly expensive! They are pretty heavy as you'd guess. If you don't mind, I'll let this post run for a couple of days and if I get no interest elsewhere I'll get you a shipping quote. Is that OK?

I really appreciate your taking the time to let me have that tip. Thank you.

What did you replace them with out of interest?

sure, no probs. to note, though, I believe I have a private courier who does shipping most safely and at reasonable prices :notworthy:
