Great Buys On Ebay, Gumtree, Marketplace etc.

Recommended Posts

I'm unsure whether the price is decent or not, but these headphone amps are pretty rare and very well reviewed:

Look a little knocked around and the woofers have been reconed with non JBL parts.

 

The tweeters are worth $600-$800 all day.

had a pair of these a fabulous vintage jbl,
kelossus is right there is something not right with the woofers and yes the 077 slots bring big money these days.

Nice compact speakers but in this market his asking price is too high. Could be wrong though.

Not absolutely sure of the heritage rumoured to be Jelco--some mentioned Audiocraft/etc in the Mix

 

--but at the time-the ARM was proving a stellar performer.

 

Dave Fletcher based it on the Swiss Breuer 5a/8c--I've owned 3 Breuer Arms

 

--as good as the ARM it is not as detailed nor able to reveal macro dynamics as the Breuers.

 

But Kudos to Dave his product comes much closer to the Breuer sonically than say the "Breuer based" Brinkmann Arms

 

--I've heard those and can say, they aint no Breuer!😏

 

Good listening,

Unbelievably there is someone on eBay selling a pair of audiosphere speakers for $170 on eBay

They are round concrete speakers made in Canberra using coral flat 5’s. Pretty efficient, need about 6-8 watts, a 2A3 won’t move them but an el84 will

Like a lot of Canberra audiophiles I already have a pair

They normally sell second hand for $350 so even at the buy it now price they are a bargain

Oh, and they are heavy, but not as heavy as the big model

Surely a discussion of "really cool" speakers need pictures!

How tempting is this? But being in Vic I really don’t want to pay for and risk postage. Appears an exellent price.
