  1. Ah yes, I see that! The stock photos also show a single wire set of connections. The speakers for sale are bi-wire connection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hi, The woofers are the same, but the first pics are stock internet photos that show the finish on the cabinets better than my potato phone pics. The ones that are outdoors are the actual speakers. If you are interested, I'm more than happy to provide more pics of the actual speakers. I can use a proper camera if that helps to show how nice they look. Cheers Alex Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. tem: Swans D2.1se+ bookshelf speakers Location: Brunswick, VIC Price: $1250 $1150 $1000 OBO - I want them gone! Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: I have my eye on something else that I want, and need funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have owned these speakers from new (about 5 years). They are a very high quality bookshelf speaker by Swans (the speaker brand of HiVi loudspeakers - one of the large OEMs that make speakers for a number of well known brands). They have a silk dome tweeter, and a 6.8 inch midbass driver. The speakers like a bit of power, and definitely prefer to be out from the wall a little bit to perform at their best. Last time I saw these for sale in AU they were $2600, so this represents good value. Their build quality and performance would embarrass a lot of brands. The cabinets are a piano lacquered rosewood finish, and are really spectacular. The pictures don't even come close to showing how nice they are (I put a couple of generic internet pics in as well, which show the finish and colour better) In the interests of full disclosure, a few years ago, I had an amp malfunction, and the chokes in the crossover were damaged. I took the speakers to Total Recoil in Thornbury for repair. The speakers were tested and no damage had occurred to any other components, so the chokes were professionally replaced. The speakers have performed flawlessly since. I don't think anyone would ever know, but I want to be totally honest about everything that I sell. When I picked the speakers up, they remarked that they were one of the better built speakers they had had seen. As always, I prefer a local buyer that can inspect and hear the speakers, however I have the original double box and packing materials, and could potentially ship interstate (insured) at the buyers expense and risk. Please note that the box is very large and weighs 28kg, so it would not be cheap! If you are interested in an audition, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
  4. my brain already hurts

    Welcome! Just remember that it's all about listening to and enjoying the music. It's easy to get caught up on needing the newest and the greatest toys. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have heard this system too. It's spectacular! Also, a second comment about Malcolm - you could not hope to meet a nicer, easier to deal with person. His equipment is pristine, and every interaction I have had with him has been a pleasure. Buy with confidence! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Item: Cambridge Audio 651P Phono stage (silver) Location: Brunswick, VIC Price: $160 (RRP $320) Item Condition: Excellent. Includes original box, etc. Reason for selling:Upgraded. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Well reviewed, budget phono stage. Can be used for MM and MC cartridges, with separate inputs for both. I've owned this from new for probably about 2 years. It has served me without any faults, and sounds far better than you would expect for the money. Please excuse the photos. It's still in the rack, and its hard to get a good shot. Stock photo also included to show connections at the back. It basically looks as new, no dents, scratches or marks. If anyone wants, I can pull it out and get comprehensive photos to show the condition. Prefer local pickup, but will consider posting (insured) at buyer's cost and risk. Pictures:

  10. Item: 1 pair of grey coloured Gecko brand speaker stands with spikes and cable routing Location: Brunswick, VIC Price: $70 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: 90cm tall speaker stands. Matt grey colour. Very solid 3 pillar design with spiked bases. I bought them second hand and used them in an office system. I work from home now, and don't have a need for all of the extra gear. The stands have nice heavy bases, and are very stable. Very good at keeping speakers off the ground. Pictures:
  11. Thanks for the kind words guys! They are a really awesome speaker. I'm having a bit of a battle with myself as to whether I should keep them or not. I've put up a stock photo from the internet as well that shows the quality of the finish a little better than my pics.
  12. Item: Very boring looking 90cm tall spiked speaker stands Location: Brunswick VIC Price: $80 Item Condition: Solid, with scuffs, one knurled nut replaced with standard nut Reason for selling: downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: No name, solid, 90cm tall. Three spiked feet on each stand, three pillars. One of the knurled nuts was replaced with a standard nut (see pics) before I bought them. They are totally unexciting, but do an excellent job of keeping speakers off the floor. I've got another pair of silver coloured Gecko stands as well that do not have spiked feet. They are also 3 pillar, with cable routing but a different design to the ones in the pics They are in a cupboard. Happy to get them out for a photo if anyone is interested. $70 for these ones. Also extremely effective at keeping speakers, or other speaker shaped objects off the floor. Pictures:

I'd also be happy to include a pair of solid and effective (but generic and unbranded) stands with these if the buyer wishes.

  14. It's almost worth it just to hear Thom Yorke crying. If it was the sound of him gasping for his last breath, you would have a sale! Great ad. Thanks for the laugh. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Item: Epos ES11 bookshelf speakers Location: Brunswick, Melbourne, VIC Price: $350 $300 Item Condition: Good for age. Reason for selling: clearing out unused gear Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I bought these speakers second hand. A real classic. They were originally black ash, but they looked tatty. I stripped the original varnish and revarnished them so you can see the wood grain. Makes the speakers look much nicer. Very happy to demonstrate to prospective buyer. Pick up only at this stage.
