WITHDRAWN OR RELISTED: FS: Magnepan 1.7 speakers MAGGIES

Recommended Posts

FS: Magnepan 1.7 (relisted)
Location: Richmond, Victoria 
Price: 2100 - offers invited (I would also consider a trade for other interesting speakers)
Item Condition: very good 
Reason for selling: down grade.  I'm selling because of limited space, certainly not SQ. 
Payment Method: Pickup preferred - Cash, COD Only
Extra Info:  The bass ribbon/voice coils were recently replaced in both speakers and new socks were added by McLeans. They look and sound brilliant. I don't have space for them so they have to go. 

And they now have nice individual timber boxes for storage/transport.

Audition invited for serious buyers.

Who cares - they have been restored to tiptop shape and are a no brainer at this price!

Nothing whatsoever to spend and peace of mind is priceless.

Honestly tempted myself to wearing a flat earther badge! [emoji51]

Oh yes I'm not questioning the price at all. I'm just curious because I own the same speakers. By the way, they sound incredible.

one of the voice coils was damaged while moving them - they're quite delicate things. The other speaker was fine but Bill still recommended replacing the coils in both speakers. So new ribbons and new socks. They're only just run in.

I helped crate these for shipping last week in 2 heavy duty ply "coffins".

So interstate buyers can be assured of a safe delivery.

Some might get say.....

 

These seem like an extraordinary bargain at the price asked.

Maybe it's time for me to do another GTG for the MG 20.7.  Always space for Maggies.

      Item: SHERBOURN PA 2-250 POWER AMPLIFIER 
      Location:PORT MACQUARIE, NSW - MID NORTH COAST
      Price: $750
      Item Condition: VERY GOOD 8/10
      Reason for selling: NO LONGER REQUIRED - TOO MUCH GEAR
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, DEPOSIT
      Extra Info:
       
      Up for sale is my Sherbourn PA 2-250 power amplifier.
      For those who don't know, this was the predecessor of the very popular Emotiva XPA-2.
      2 x 250w @8 ohms, 2 x 500w @4 ohms
      XLR and balanced inputs
      Trigger inputs and outputs
      Huge torodial power supply
      Weighs in at 22kg
       
      I was using this amplifier with a set of magnepan mg12's I recently rebuilt the frames and crossovers for.
      I was previously using a Harmon Kardon citation 12 for the Maggies with no compliants, but after the recent
      modifications , the Maggies dug that much deeper into the bass region that the HK was having a hard time,
      and got quite a bit warmer than it normally did when a bit of Dire Straits was played......
       
      I found the Sherbourn had a very similar sonic signature to my lovely old HK, but boy could it dig lower without even a hint of breaking a sweat.
      So much so were the new crossovers, frames and amp working together that well that the lower register was at the point of being detrimental.
      I made the Maggies into a three way system, put the HK back into the system to cover the mid and top end, and run 2 x 12" sealed subs for the bottom end.
      And with that, the Sherbourn went back into the box.
       
      Would make a great home theatre front channel amplifier, stereo amplifier, or another Maggie owner wanting 500w x 2 @ 4ohms without breaking the budget ( or marriage ).
       
      Prefer local pick up as the weight is above some freight carriers limits, and once they know it's second hand audio gear, they won't cover for damage......
      been there and done it a few times in the past.......unless you're wanting to pay hundreds of dollars extra ( TNT won't cover for loss ??? only damage )
       
      My username on ebay is also rawcraftwood, so you can look on there for an indication of my feedback. I'm not a trader or seller of audio gear, I'm just like the rest of us,
      bitten by that darn upgradeitus bug......continually looking for that audio Nirvana.
      Fleabay is no longer what it used to be 5 years ago, too many crazy people......so I don't sell on there anymore. 
       
      I have a few other amplifiers to list over the coming weeks....same thing, am happy with the current setup/s and no need to change anymore.
      I can put the funds to other projects.
