Nice!

 

Beats me why they dropped this colour!

 

I've had the Rosenut but prefer the Cherry.

The Rosenut has always been more popular here,  but I think the Cherry looks great as well.

Black wins all. :P

 

If there were black I would buy them :)

 

Having heard Linn systems a few times, I can understand the attraction to the simplicity. At times I feel my own assortment of components becomes too complicated.

How big a room do you really need for these or the 802D2s? And do you take souls or body parts as trade?

The 800's need a larger room, we've found 802's can work in smaller areas brilliantly.

 

What size is your room?

 

They can be hard to move on!

 

Cheers

i had mine is a 6 x 4.5 mtr room and they worked brilliantly

 

had them around 1.7mtr from the back wall to the front of speaker and around 1 mtr from side wall to center of bass driver

slight toe in so tweeters were slightly wider then ear width apart

I do have the same dimensions as John for my room, but cannot get the speakers out as much else I will be sitting in the dining to listen music :)

 

For the price, I cannot believe these are still available, legendary speakers.

People demo systems with them at the Munich Audio Show.

And you don't find cheap crap at that show.

I don't have spare $$ to look at them seriously, I'll just have to battle on with my Ambience until I win lotto!

I'm just curious if something like a 6x4m room would be suitable, as I've been eying them off for about 5 years now, and eventually when I buy a place these will hopefully be joining :)

I remember being gobsmacked by these speakers as a school kid at Tivoli Hi Fi in Glenferrie Rd, in 1979

The Linn gear is all very interesting.

A mate has these B&W's (well, the same ones, not these), amazing speakers that seem to respond well to anything. His, in his room, like monoblocks but some jazz played through his valve amps is also blissful.

GLWTS Jamesy-babe and I hope all is going well for you. You need to find me a good PSA DSD some day soon.

      Item: ELAC BS 243.3 Bookshelf Speakers - black
      Location: Collingwood, Melbourne
      Price: 1,400, negotiable
      Item Condition: 10/10
      Reason for selling: Raising funds
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
      Extra Info:
       
      Picked up from Vinyl Revival in Fitzroy late last year (Nov), selling to raise some funds.
       
      I auditioned a few bookshelf speakers and found these to be the best sounding and looking of the ones I tried in the two weeks I spent in there auditioning! I've had these in my apartment and they fill the space beautifully, lovely to listen to in the background but can definitely deliver if asked to. I have had them hooked up to a Sonos AMP. The jet tweeter delivers a lot of detail in the highs and they sound like much larger speakers for the size.
       
      The build and finish are beautiful. Glossy black, and really cool looking under the grille. 
       
      Bought for 1,995, selling for 30% off: https://web.archive.org/web/20190407073809/https://www.vinylrevival.com.au/collections/elac/products/elac-bs-243-2-bookshelf-pair
       
      Comes with original box and packaging. Pick up Collingwood.

      Extra These speakers have been used in an Aktiv set up,  the amp of which I’m selling in a separate ad. 
      They sound great and haven’t been overdriven. I’ve owned the speakers since new
      and still have the original boxes so they will be well packed.

      Just got these babies from Mark at @frankprowse here in Perth. All I can say is... “holy wow!!!” The sound, the fit, the finish... truly amazing. I reckon they could ask 3 times the asking price just for the finish!! 
       
      I’ve used floorstanders almost all my life and forgot how accurate bookshelf imaging is and how wide their soundstaging is. 
       
      If u live in Perth, look for Mark at Frank Prowse and he will hook u up a great deal! U wouldn’t find a better person to deal with. You wouldn’t be pressured to buy anything. Super knowledgeable and a good bloke all around.
