Gumtree is a eBay owned business for some time now. Surprising when one hears it the first time but true.   As far as 300% profit which you call outrageous, it is not different to what super

A bit of a rarity. 

 

Tannoy 15 Inch Reds Dual Concentric Speakers in Custom made Cabinets,
https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/marmion/speakers/tannoy-15-inch-reds-dual-concentric-speakers-in-custom-made-cabinets/1268000325?

 

I see some very expensive components have been used in the crossovers for this Tannoy build.

Still not sure if they are worth $15k though.

"It's a deal, a steal .... the sale of the Farkin century" If I didn't already own 2 x OG 1200's I'd be all over this. No post though ..

The drivers are reds, not super reds. The market value on them is stratospheric at the best of times.

[VIC] Osborn Grand Monument Reference Pair.... $5K start bid

 

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Osborn-Grand-Monument-Reference-Loudspeakers/124579137452

 

s-l1600.jpg

 

I can't imagine that the owner ever got the best out of these huge speakers judging by the size of the room, the low ceiling and proximity to the room corners

It would be equivalent to listening on a large pair of headphones

Maybe they have moved into a smaller place since originally purchasing them and have moved them into this small room, hence the sale.

Very nice speakers, will be interesting to see what they end up going for.

actual photos didn't look like the Q950 :)

They are iq90 by the looks, great speakers and probably worth about the asking price but no Bargain to see here. 

Move along people

Amazing how the guy doesn't know what he owns.

When I looked at the listing, it was for a pair of Q950 with 1 stock photo of said item.

Shock horror when I looked at the listing now - a pair of iQ90 with a different (correct) stock photo and 2 actual photos. WTF!

Unfortunate!

but you have, today (?), realised the world we live in

take everything you are told/on the net as "make believe" until you have checked the details.

 

Fortunately this mostly (not always :) ) is not the case here on SNA .

While not a screaming bargain it's some what of a good buy. The original vertically aligned alnico L100. You never see the first iteration for sale and if you're a collector these are the ones to get.

This guy does a lot of business on Gumtree - I see his ads often. Gear ranges from okay-ish to "how the hell did he come across that"?

 

He's doesn't seem to be a flipper, though. I get the feeling he imports things through some connection he has, plays with them for a bit, and moves them on. They're never priced like he's in a hurry, but they're not ludicrous either. From memory he's had some nice Accuphase and Diatone in the past.

I spoke to him years back and he seemed like a good guy. I don't think you could import those speakers from the main markets, US or Japan for that money. The original L100 are doing nothing but appreciating in value and everyone knows it.

He has contacts in Japan. I've bought a couple of things off him. Just make sure you know what your buying and go through it with a fine tooth comb.

OK valve aficionados here is one for you. 3 x old skool Westrex / AE 240 KT66 units in Armdale WA available for auction on eBay. The grey coated KT66 toobs on the 3 units alone are worth more than the amps themselves. The iron is also worth salvaging.

 

Can someone please share the glass bottle pulls with me. 😁
