  1. The color looks very nice, rich and deep. Don't know why wife don't like it.
  2. Item: 2 x Rola 12Ux 12" full range driver Location: Melbourne Price: $300 Item Condition: Immaculate, 9.5/10 for the age Reason for selling: not able to commit the project Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I was fortunate to acquire a pair of vintage Rola 12Ux full range drivers. These were made in 1966 in a Richmond factory, yet still in top nick condition. Very rare to find. It was either meticulously maintained, or meticulously restored in recent years. No sag, no rubbing, the dome, center cone and woofer cone are in perfect shape, no tears, no cracks, just as new. The spider is also like new. Absolutely no rust in any of the metal parts. If not looking at the date stamp, you hardly realize it is almost 50 years old! I even salvaged the front baffle where the drivers were mounted. These are still in reasonable condition, with visible defects though. I played with some ideas, such as build a proper box (but can't find a good design), use it as an open baffle setup (but need to restore the paint and defects on the baffle), or build into the dry wall as infinite baffle. All require big commitment so I'd better leave it to more capable hands. Currently I just erect them to use as open baffle speaker. Of course the bass is weak in this setup, and the extreme highs are non-existent. It only rated to 15000hz anyway. Right after I switched from a modern speaker, it felt missing both ends, but quickly you get used to it and addicted to its mid range performance. They sound so sweet and so room filling. Very balanced, very easy to listen and never tiring. Sensitivity is quite high too. They shine on vocals and jazz, and female jazz in particular. I'm quite sure if driven by valve and feed from vinyl, it will be even sweeter. A bit of vintage Tannoy traits? I have no idea how much they worth now, but I feel for this condition and rareness it demand some respect. Any offer welcome. Will make a donation if sold on the price.

  3. That bass driver is passive, isn't it?
  4. Guys, do you realize this thread is 3.5 years old? And these drivers have in my hands once and has been moved on since.
  5. You put up the ads in the wrong time/season. In 3 month time 200km picnic trip and come back for a bargain is quite worth it for this price. (but not today!)
  6. Does it support AAC decoding?
