SOLD: FS: Proac Future One Floor standing speakers

Recommended Posts

Item: Proac Future One Floor-standing speakers
Location: Bendigo, Victoria
Price: $2900
Item Condition:  Good condition.  These have been well cared for.  LHS speaker does have small damage to veneer only at the very bottom of the rear corners (see photos, not noticeable unless up close).  Comes from non-smoking, no pets environment.  All drivers are in mint/as new condition.
Reason for selling:  Part of a second system that I don't have the time to use
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal.

 

Extra Info: 

A rare find, as these remarkable speakers don’t often come up for sale.  They were a departure from the usual Proac design, with open baffle and ribbon tweeter.  When new, their RRP here in Australia was $18,999 and $10K USD overseas.  After owning many speakers over the years, I have a distinct preference for the high end Proac sound.  These speakers have been part of a second system, however I rarely get to use even my primary system.  Primary system includes Proac D80’s, which are amazing.  These speakers are the next closest I have heard to them, but it’s time for them to go.  After years of trying out many speakers across brands, I have not come across anything better than these used for even twice the amount of my asking price.   The birdseye maple finish is stunning, and is by far the best finish on any speakers I have seen or owned.  The birdseye looks almost multi dimensional from different angles and in different light.  As with all Proac's, these speakers are built to a very high standard and the sound is exceptional.  Stereophile review here - https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/1000proac/index.html   It is rare to find these in Australia for sale.  For reference, overseas sales are typically in the $5-$6K AUD range

 

I would encourage local pickup, with a chance to audition, and with payment of your choice.  Bendigo is only 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne.  I currently have them setup with a pair of Red Wine Audio Signature 70 mono-blocks, and they can be auditioned for as long as you wish (in a separate room from rest of the house).  Note that I’m prepared to sell the mono-blocks to the buyer at a very reasonable price if interested.  If not, after the sale I will be looking to sell the mono-blocks for anyone interested.  If local pickup isn’t practical then I’m happy to look at delivery options.

 

Questions welcomed.  Thanks for looking.

Wow interesting design, wedge shaped.

 

Will read up on these as I am unfamiliar with model or that type of design.

 

was about to ask would a child easily push these over, but saw the extended legs out the back.

 

whats the weight?

Thanks for the comments all.  Yes, they are beautifully made and sound great.  If I didn't have the much bigger brother D80's then I would be keeping them (shame that my D80's aren't finished in birdseye maple, but rather the standard cherry.....).  75 lbs sounds about right for the pair.  Spot on regarding their stability and small children - the legs at the back make for quite a wide overall footprint, and combined with a significant portion of cabinet weight at the bottom, these are probably harder to push over than an average floor stander.

Let us know if ever you decide to sell the D80’s.

Thanks, but those are staying with me until old age :)

      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 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.
