  21. Item: Paradigm S8v3 - C5v3 Location: Melbourne Price: S8’s v3: $8000.00 (RRP $15,595) SOLD C5 v3 (including Stand): $3000.00 ($6995.00 RRP) & ($699.00 RRP) Item Condition: Excellent (with full packaging) Reason for selling: Regretful sale Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It is with great regret that I am selling these speakers. They are without doubt the best I have ever owned for home theatre and stereo listening. But due to circumstances beyond my control, a regretful sale is now required. I would prefer to sell all 3 speakers, but will consider selling the C5 separately depending on interest I guess. The C5 also come with the stand, which on its own is RRP $699.00. The C5 is packed away as I turned my room into a dedicated 2 channel listening zone, but it is in excellent condition, however happy to take snaps if there is a serious buyer out there. I am more than happy, actually I would recommend a demo to any serious buyer so you can check the excellent condition and the amazing sound. Please do not ask for postal information as these are very heavy beasts. If you wish to purchase them unheard, then please do your own research and organise a courier yourself. S8 v3: ($15595.00 RRP) Height, Width, Depth 123.2 cm x 21.0 cm x 52.1 cm Weight (unpacked) 45.3 kg / 100 lb each C5 v3: ($6995.00 RRP) Height, Width, Depth 24.1 cm x 95.3 cm x 44.4 cm Weight (unpacked) 36.7 kg / 81 lb each J-18C Stand: ($699.00 RRP) Height, Width, Depth 43.0 cm x 67.0cm x 32.4cm Weight (unpacked) 30.07 kg These speakers are exceptional and sound as good as they look! Designed, engineered and crafted in Canada they have superb build quality and exquisite styling. Their curves are balanced by the rugged ISO shock mounting that couples the super-Neodynium mid range drivers and 4 mineral filled polypropylene bass drivers. Finished in a top quality Cherry, they exude class (and make taking photos really tricky to avoid selfie reflections!). They reveal immense clarity and detail across a wide sound stage with a sense of space and ease. At 92dB sensitivity they work effortlessly. I found the bass dynamic, crisp and punchy. The S8’s were Paradigms top of the range reference speaker which I purchased for 14,095.00. This honour now goes to the Persona series that reach upwards of $50,000 I believe. Paradigm WebSite: https://www.paradigm.com/en/floorstanding/signature-s8 https://www.paradigm.com/en/center/signature-c5 https://www.paradigm.com/en/stands/j-18c-stand They were rated in the top 25 speakers of all time by http://audiophilereview.com/audiophile/the-25-ultimate-audiophile-speakers-of-all-time.html “When it comes to audiophile grade floorstanding loudspeakers, names like Revel, Wilson Audio and Bowers & Wilkins are often dropped – but at one third the price, the Paradigm Reference Signature S8s hang right in there with the 800s and WATT Puppies of the world.” There is no shortage of outstanding reviews for the S8 (and their slightly smaller brother, the s6) Here are just 2: http://hometheaterreview.com/paradigm-reference-signature-s8-v3-loudspeakers-reviewed/ “You could talk about the S8 versus other loudspeakers in the $4,000 to $10,000 price range but the Paradigms simply wipe the floor with nearly every player in that part of the market on most levels...the Paradigm Signature S8 is possibly the best value in high-end loudspeakers period.” http://www.avrev.com/home-theater-loudspeakers/speaker-systems/paradigm-reference-signature-series-review-2.html “Their effortless sound created an extraordinary sense of space like very few dynamic speakers I’ve heard at any price. In many ways, their sound reminded me of the Revel Salon speakers, but for less than half the cost.” I know my photo skills leave a lot to be desired!

  22. Item: Pair of 2014 Tannoy Prestige Kensington SE loudspeakers. Designed and made in the UK (Relisted. Price reduced). Location: Melbourne. Pick-up only. Price: $8000 (RRP $16999). Item Condition: As brand new with original spikes, stands, and receipt (no packaging). Reason for selling: Upgrading to larger size speakers. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal. Extra Info: I bought them brand new in June 2014 from the distributor in Melbourne with original boxes and packaging. I have compared these Kensington speakers side by side with many other speakers within a price range of 9K to 25K: Focal Utopia 20K+, PSB Synchrony, Acoustic Zen Adagio, as well as a few other famous 15K-20K models I can't recall. Surprisingly, Kensington trumped them ALL by a BIG margin. I used Kensington with the appraised Elson Silva's Southern Star 35W tube amp. Used rarely for music, mainly at low volumes for TV. Kept in stable temperature, in smoke and pet free room. You are welcome to bring your speakers and your amp to test them out and appraise the true magic of the Kensington. The Tannoy Kensington SE features a 10-inch Dual Concentric driver with an AlNiCo magnet system and the Tannoy PepperPost WaveGuide, mounted in a 1100 mm tall, 406 mm wide solidly braced cabinet constructed of lacquered mahogany veneer with solid walnut edging and trim detail. Front panel crossover controls allow the unit to be fine-tuned for musical preferences and listening environment. Tannoy Prestige speakers are designed and built like fine musical instruments, producing startlingly immediate, dynamic, and utterly captivating sound, rich in tone, as close to a live performance as anything in audio. No matter what your musical tastes, whether jazz, reggae, electronic, classical, hard rock, or whatever, the Tannoy Dual Concentric design is a magical antidote to clinical high-end loudspeaker alternatives. The Kensington works magnificently in spaces ranging in size from an average sitting room to substantial halls, and in all interior decors, from traditional to contemporary. It can be powered by low-powered valve amps, including single-ended triodes, or high-powered solid-state monoblocs, with both bi-wiring and bi-amping options. Specifications: Recommended amplifier power: 50 to 225 W Frequency response: 29 Hz to 22 kHz, -6 dB Sensitivity: 93 dB, 2.83 V at 1 m Nominal impedance: 8 Ohms Dimensions: 1100 x 406 x 338 mm Weight: 37 kg each Finish: lacquered mahogany veneer with solid walnut edging and trim detail Reviews: Acclaimed Australian Hi-Fi audio designer & repairer Patrick Turner, put this in his blog (in my opinion, a truly trustworthy reviewer): “The Kensington SE might be too much of a good thing. It’s Technicolor rich, contrastier and flat out more delicious sounding than any box or panel speaker I’ve heard in ages. If I’ve made you curious, here’s my advice: Listen to your favorite music first on other speakers, and then audition the Kensington SE. I’m betting you won’t want to go back...” "What astonished me at once was the sheer transparency of the Kensington rivaling the Quads in the precision of its soundstage and in the depth and effortless layering of the image. I've not before heard anything quite so coherent from a box loudspeaker.... The Kensington is one of a very small number of loudspeakers that I would say have truly graced my listening room in the quarter century that I have been writing about audio equipment. Set up carefully and driven with a top quality power amplifier and front end components, it is capable of coming within a whisker of emulating that 'open window on the event' which, for me at least, is what high fidelity is all about." (Ivor Humphreys) "The Kensington's biggest strength lies in the delicacy and transparency of the mid-band, and this has an enormous influence on voices in particular. On 'Indoor Fireworks', the plaintive, breathy quality of Elvis Costello's voice has never sounded more effective or expressive. Likewise, when I slipped Jim White's wonderfully bizarre Wrong Eyed Jesus CD in to the player, this speaker seemed particularly effective at peeling back veils and revealing both the essence and the lyric of this quite complex and densely layered mix."
