    Contact details for Weston Acoustics

    Thanks, That’s helpful to know I hope all is progressing well. David
  2. Does anyone know if Earle's contact details have changed from the ones on the website? I have tried emails, phone and text on several occasions with no success. I have ordered an amp that was due to be completed in December. I know these things can blow out but haven't been able to get in contact with him. Is all well? thanks

    SOLD: FS First Watt Clone F5

    Thanks, the SA 103
  6. Item: Elektra 4 channel amplifer Location: Adelaide Price: $800 Item Condition: good Reason for selling: no longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I believe this to be 4 by 100 watts although not entirely sure. I have been using it to drive the bass units in my Tikandi speakers. A very slight hum from the transformer is noticeable when music is not playing. I didn't find it a problem but I think I have priced it to reflect this if it is an issue for a prospective purchaser. I'm happy to ship at buyers expense but it is quite heavy. Pictures:

    SOLD: Quad ESL speakers

    Item: Quad ESL57 Location: Adelaide Price: $1500 Item Condition: Average, consistent with age Reason for selling: No room and not used enough Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Extra Info: I bought these a couple of years ago from a lady in England on Ebay. I first heard Quad ESLs when I was a Uni student nearly 40 years ago. It was probably the start of my audio journey. Living at home and being a student meant that they were not an option. I ended up buying a pair of Stax SRX3s. Have been a fan of electrostatics ever since (I have a pair of Whise speakers in the other room). As many of us do as we get older, when the opportunity arises we revisit things that we out of reach in our youth. I was keen to see if they sounded as good as I remembered, I think they do. I think they are in good /average condition for their age. The performance is good enough for my wife to tell me on a number of occasions you really don't need to sell them. We have a pair of Tikandi's in the same room. I think the Tikandi's always sound better but the Quads are fun too. I use them in active mode and crossover to a JL Audio Sub. There are some cosmetic blemishes but nothing that seems to affect the sound. For me, they remind me of the sound that captivated me years ago. So much so that when the children all finally leave home post University and space allows I will probably buy another pair. Most likely from Quad Musik or One Thing Audio. Prefer to sell locally as while I think they sound great would much prefer any purchaser to be comfortable themselves with the performance. I will ship if the buyer is comfortable to accept the transport risk and that my assessment of them is genuine. Packing and shipping at cost to purchaser. Pictures:
