  3. Bit odd to put an ad up and then disappear. Been waiting since Friday for a response.
  4. Two wonderful articles...thankyou so much for posting!
  5. Yes...certain classical recordings of the late 1950s and early 60s can have eye watering valuations. Many criteria have to be meet however. The right conductor and orchestra for that composer.The quality of the actual recording producer.. etc Copies must be in absolutely perfect condition. Tiny sruffs clicks and hisses can be tolerable with much popular/contemporary music. There is no place to hide during a quiet solo piano passage! I expect to see a steady increase in the value of good classical vinyl recordings during the next decade. GLWS
  6. I suppose you need to know whether you were first...often folks just pm direct. And alas...was not me. There will be more bargains in the future.
  7. I can only go on what I have been told ...and now in a few private PMs. The guy had serious wealth (apparently!) and that stuff can talk. Were Aranmar around in 79/80? While I understand where you are coming from(and appreciate your input) I am hesitant to break them up as I like their historical connection to two pioneers of Australian Hi fi industry.
  8. This has been a most rewarding and informative thread and I thank all those who have contributed. I do want to respond to the idea that the best value is obtained by breaking the speakers down and selling the individual components as the cabinets have no real value. Firstly...if you read QUIET PLEASE LISTEN he confirms the provenance of the speakers from JB. They were made by JBL. A private commission. I suggest the veneer and construction of them is superior to their retail range. Also ...if you just sell the components..well you will need to build cabinets to house them. Doesnt really make sense to me. Having said that I would like them to go where they are appreciated and used. It is important to focus on on the most important aspect...they sound truely stunning. In light of what has been revealed I think a price of $5000 is a reasonable but I need them moved so would take $3500
  9. Oh no! Have screwed it al back together again! However I do recall a gizmo there. Sort of spool with copper wires wound around and maybe a few transistor thingies (You can see the extent of my electrical knowledge here!!!) It was a ittlle oodd in that it looked glued to the carcass/front panel with this waxy looking substance.
  10. Hi...would you mind having a look at the pics of the components I have put up so as to give me an idea of what I have so I can get a better estimate f a fair price. Be much appreciated..
