Location: Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, NSW
 

Price: REDUCED TO $400 $520 ONO. I'm not offended by offers, so please don't hesitate to message me. That being said, you may not want to miss out on these, as they don't come up for sale very often in this part of the world.
 

Item Condition: Great to Excellent condition
 

Reason for selling: I need money. Money is good. I have many speakers. Speakers are also good, but money is slightly more important right now.
 

Payment Method: Pickup - Cash after full demo/inspection. This process will likely be accompanied by the old obligatory lengthy conversation about hi-fi gear. In light of this, do set aside additional time! If you're interstate and particularly keen on these, you'll need to PM me and convince me of your Sony fandom. 
 

Extra Info:

 

Really hard to find this Sony ES speaker line in Australia, and in such great condition at that. Can't even remember the last pair of Sony ES floorstanders for sale here on SNA. You'll find that on the used market, the greatest number of examples of this line come from Germany and the Netherlands, where it seems to have been not only made, but more widely distributed. I found this particular model listed in a German 1995/96 Sony catalogue of high-end components ( hfe_sony_es_high_end_hifi_components_1995-96_de.pdf ). It's quite clear from the catalogue that this was one of Sony's top-of-the-line speaker offerings at the time. Two snippet of the specs listed in that catalogue (which, naturally, is in German) are included here:

Though it can be hard to interpret the German info I've come across in learning more about these, I believe they are of German design, made in Germany with all Danish Vifa drivers. The frequency response is rated at 32-20,000 Hz , and each cabinet weighs 22.5kg. Not your standard Sony speaker by any means!

 

These are in really nice shape. Cabinets have very, very minimal wear, as is the case with all of the drivers and the grilles. The foam surrounds on the mids have some light wear, but there is no tearing or deformity: they still seem to be going strong, which is why I haven't felt the need to replace them.  

 

The speakers sound great: get them off the floor!! Whether you isolate/couple them or use small stands, getting these babies off the floor really opens up the mids and takes any boominess out of the bass. I use 60-80cm stands with them, which makes them look absolutely ridiculously tall but seems to hit the spot for me in terms of sound-stage (BIG).

 

Once correctly set-up, you end up with a performance marked by control and clarity.

 

The CD player is in good shape, with only light wear, and comes with a remote. 

 

If you have any questions at all, or would like to set-up a demo time, feel free to message me. I have plenty of other hi-fi that I'm looking to sell, so please do let me know of what things you're looking to add/change within your own setup.

      Item: ELAC BS 243.3 Bookshelf Speakers - black
      Location: Collingwood, Melbourne
      Price: 1,200, 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 Info:

      These are the top of the line model, above the pro model and come with DSP, digital and an analogue (A/D card) for turntables etc.
       
      They are incredibly dynamic! They sound just as good when theyre shaking the house or playing whisper quiet. 
       
      I have all original packing so transport is not an issue
       
      As im going to need a complete new system Im happy to look at trades
