Whatmough 202i lead line with steel heavy duty stands

Recommended Posts

Item: Whatmough 202i lead line with steel heavy duty stands

Location: Pacoevale 3044
Price: $1250 

They also come with the extra old tweeters.
Item Condition: Very good condition
Reason for selling: I prefer my rethms speakers but always wanted a 2 way book shelf speaker. 
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: I bought these as I always wanted a pair as I was a good friend of Colin Whatmough.

 

These have the upgraded focal tweeter which kills the old tweeter. I have added a picture of the new tweeter below. If Colin Whatmough was alive rest his sole he would have used these tweeters. These are in excellent condition only one mark on the top of the speaker cabinet in the first picture left side. These speakers have also been polished. They come with the original whatmough heavy duty steel stands that are a back breaker in weight. They tilt back so you get a better transparency in the sound stage. 

 

They sound amazing deep bass very transparent with the new tweeters. The first to hear them will be all over them.  There in excellent condition and sound to match. They are also very easy to drive.

Weren't these sold last month by MCavallo who had them in storage for 15 years?

Yes from the same guy but when I took the speakers home one tweeter was not working.

 

Funny story: I offered him more than his asking price on sterio net because I wanted them real bad but he except from gumtree my offer which was his asking price... Now I know why but never the less bargain. So I could have had one tweeter fixed but then decided to up grade them with a brand new pair of tweeter that are way better in every way. I also do have the old pair to the new buyer depending on price. All I wanted is break even.

Are you contemplating buying them?

Given audiohifiaudio's impressive hifi equipment listed for sale over the years I'm a 100% sure if he says he he has upgraded the tweeters with much better focal tweeters he knows what he is doing and they would be compatible.

As I used to own 201 leadline, I can vouch how good these 202i speakers are! 201 uses Ti inverted dome tweeter (shiny), but 202i tweeters are more tamed (mellow) in sound that you can listen longer. As audiohifiaudio mentioned that TC90TDX even better than TC90TD, then I only can assume how good sounding these speakers are from 201. If my memory serves me well, I believe Colin used Hovland capacitors for his speakers.

If I am in the market for a bookshelf speakers now, I would have snapped up these already. GLWTS

  • If your a local and want to try these speaker in your house on your system we can arrange something no problem.
  • If you try them you will not give them back.
  • These also come with the old tweeters one of them needs repair quoted around $50 to $80 to repair but a waste of time as the new tweeters are so much more better.
  • The brand new upgraded tweeters are from Focal Australia and they are a replacement to the old ones with the only difference they sound way better.
  • Hard to find a better speaker at this price 100%
  • I'm open to offer as long as I break even.

Of course not expecting all will agree, but these are fabulous speakers. In late 90s, a friend of mine was listening to 201 with ME combo driven by 750 and to my friend's ears this combo trashed B&W 800 series driven with Krell.

Back in the day I had a pair of 201s driven with VTL tiny triodes - nice combination and alternated with my ME 200/240.  Both were great combinations...In fact I think I had it for about 20 years.

Correct way of positioning these speakers, tweeters sitting inwardly to minimise the reflection from side walls.

      Item: Linn LP12
      Location: Perth
      Price: 1600 ono
      Item Condition: good
      Reason for selling: small child is now almost ready to destroy everything I own. Best it go somewhere safe.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Early Linn LP12 for sale equipped with Rega RB300 tonearm and Linn Asak moving coil cartridge. I am told that I am the third owner of this beauty with the original owner having it for many decades. The second owner got a newer Linn rather than upgrade. The fluted plinth is in pretty good condition with a few small nicks as seen in the photos. Lid is crack free with only minor swirling. Hinges replaced by myself so are almost new. No idea about the hours on the cartridge but it plays without a hitch and stylus looks very straight. I've put on less than 50 hours personally having only got it right before our child was born. It has been well looked after by all owners and I even have the original documents. Bonus shim for the tonearm in case you need to raise the height to accommodate a different cartridge. Happy for inspections for anyone in Perth.

      Item: peachtree MB3 speakers
      Location: Melbourne 
      Price: $50
      Item Condition: some light scratches but not too bad
      Reason for selling: not using
      Payment Method: Pickup only
      Extra Info:
       Was part of a set with the peachtree music box but am hanging on to the amp. The speakers would make good computer or background speakers for someone. They don't completely embarrass themselves and sound pretty decent, and solidly built but they are little compact things after all.

      Item: alpine pdx m12 sub amp
      Location: kingaroy 
      Price: 400
      Item Condition: good used
      Reason for selling: no longer running sub
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      bought a while ago and has had about 2 years  of use. 
      top of the line model, Rrp $999.
      compact class D so runs cool and fits anywhere, will drive any sub.
      have a new baby so don't need a sub in the car now.
       
      good condition but some writing is rubbing off the Top, I used some sort of cleaning polish that stripped the printing a bit. Sorry. 😢
       
       
      Amp is about the size of a decent hardcover book by the way, so could be posted for $30 odd just about anywhere.
       
      also have a Type x subwoofer (driver only, box got damaged) I'd do for $250 with the amp (their best dual voice coil sub) or $300 separately. Currently have the driver in storage so can't take pictures of it at the moment. Here's a link for your perusal though.
