  1. I have had numerous Apogee models in the past. If these had been in the West they would have been in my room by now. If I though they could be transported over here safely, I would be tempted but I don't know of any way that could be done. GLWS they deserve to be loved. Ken
  2. Item: Kef Reference 107 Speakers Price Range: Market Rate Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I am looking for a pair of Kef Reference 107 Speakers. I would prefer a Mk 2 model and with the Kube Equalizer if possible. Ken
  3. Thanks, I was aware of QSR, I just thought that $11.99 for postage was a bit of a rip off for a single paper dust cap. Ken
  4. Does anybody know of a supplier of Speaker Dust Caps (preferably in Australia). Ken
  5. This UK book shop has various versions, starting at £45.00 + PP https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30563914014&searchurl=kn%3DTannoy%26sortby%3D17&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp1-_-title27 Also, this different book, I guess you would have to confirm what language it is I; https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30053479767&searchurl=kn%3DTannoy%26sortby%3D17&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp2-_-title10
  6. Item: Technics SP10 Arm Board Price Range: Market Rate Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Arm Board for Technics SP10 Turntable wanted. Looking for both the Aluminium surround and the mounting insert, either a blank insert or cut for a Technics EPA-100 Arm. This what it looks like (Borrowed Photograph)
  7. Of the speakers listed above I have previously owned Wilson Sophia 3, Quad 2905, Duntech Crown Prince (not Sovereigns), I have also regularly heard Acoustat's and have heard the latest version of the ML CLX, IMO none of them could compare with my old Apogee's, so yours must be in a totally different league. Your comments re Sgt Peppers, it sometimes does my head in when I think that music like that, that I have listened to all my adult life and I know that it is still a fact that I have not heard it all.
  8. Hi Tony, Yes it was also known as the "Full Range", released in1982. I found this on line; https://skyfiaudio.com/products/apogee-acoustics-full-range-aka-the-apogee-speakers-completely-refurbished-and-spectacular Ken PS I did not mean for this to hijack your thread.
  9. Congratulations Tony they look magnificent, as does your setup. I know Graz quite well as I used to be an Apogee owner, please give him my regards when you are speaking to him. @colinm1 is quite correct the original Apogee speaker which became known as 'The Apogee' was configured to have the bass ribbons in the main frame with the mid and treble ribbons on a separate 'wing' which was hinged.

  10. Hi AuDrew, The Rogers I have are 11 Ohms built by Swisstone in England in the 1980's. The Audiomaster were genuine speaker builders licensed by the BBC they only made the 15 Ohm version of the LS3/5a as far as I am aware, I think they did make some of the larger BBC designs. Stirling Audio LS3/5a V2's are 11 Ohm versions according to their literature. In total there were 8 builders licensed by BBC that actually brought commercial versions to the market place. The HiFi News Shoot out was a good look at the LS3/5a models. A fascinating little speaker but not to everybody's taste. Ken
  11. I have a pair of Rogers LS3/5a's (the black lacquered version) and a pair of Stirling Audio LS3/5a V2 Signature Editions in Rosewood, I would rate the Stirling higher than the Rogers. They just sound 'so right' on everything. I have owned many variants of the LS3/5a's probably the best IMO were by Audiomaster, hand made by Robin Marshal, who also designed for Monitor Audio among others before he started Epos, I understand that audio memory is fickle but I would say that the Stirling's are ahead of Audiomaster. I have known Doug Stirling for a very long time, I even have one of his Technics SP10 Corian plinths. Ken
  12. A little bit different, I have a pair of Stirling Broadcast LS3/5a V2 Signature Edition plus the AB-2 Extenders. They are in unmarked Rosewood. All original boxes and literature.
