FS: DIY Zigmahornet Horn Speakers (4x Fostex Fe126en Drivers)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Item: DIY Zigmahornet Horn Speakers
Location: Melbourne
Price: $300
Item Condition: Very good
Reason for selling: itchy bug to fund sth different
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: Purchase from another SNAer a few months ago, putting in my bed room since then, same condition as when I took them. And hopefully he doesn't mind I stole his description and pictures below. The speakers are very easy to drive, I have been using a Mcchanson 6EM7 (2w set amp) to drive them and I rarely need to turn the volume pot beyond 12 o'clock. 

 

About 1.5 meters height, base panel 450mmx285mm.

 

Pick up only.

 

"I believe these were built by someone in USA and then imported into Australia by the previous owner. They contain 2 x Fostex Fe126en full range drivers (4.5") in each cabinets (1x front, 1x back). Sounds very good for relaxed listening. Very efficient drivers so very easy to drive."

These sound great and I wish I had space for them. What would it cost to buy the four Fostex Fe126en in these speakers??? They’re an excellent deal. 

 

GLWTS!

      Item Condition: good

      Extra Info: an ebay purchase a few months ago from a guy selling many custom made combos from the 80s (seller oz038).
       
      I finally took the advice to run these with a small tube amp 2.5w and wow.. I get it. Surprising bsss but obviously not massive.
       
      I love my corals but I must say that for voicing and imaging these things are excellent, and go plenty loud.

      Cones have a very light coating of artist damnar solution to control resonances -a very usual japan audiophile practice .

      Item: Toshiba Aurex SS-30 Speakers
      Location: ACT
      Price: $750 . PRICE REDUCED TO $650
      Item Condition: Pretty damn good considering their age they do have some marks veneer chips which I repaired to the best of my abilities they don't detract from their looks they are actually in pretty good nick I think the photo's will show their overall condition, the Alnico drivers are all in very good condition work perfectly I added some velcro so the grills sit even, very easy to remove if that is needed sticky velcro and staples.
      There are no issues with these speakers for their day they were a quality build I've had a couple of SNA mates over to have a listen they were suitably impressed.
      Reason for selling: Have had a lot of fun listening to these sweet old ladies paired up with the Weston Topaz but I'm of the opinion one set of speakers in the cave is enough and my Spendors are very good at being all rounders.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: So these are highly efficient full range golden oldies made by Toshiba/Aurex when they actually had some pride in making audio gear they are said to be rated at 99/100DB very revealing lots of detail but also musical, pair them up with a nice tube amp high or low powered and you're set simple as that very easy to drive, if you expect lots of bass you'll be disappointed these excel at vocals instruments and lighter bass recordings beautiful with jazz and classical even country the Dixie Chicks are sounding very nice this afternoon quality recordings will shine through.
       
      @Steve M talks about these in his massive audio blog which is such an interesting read by itself it was the main reason I searched for a pair to try them out glad I did I'd like to think I'm experienced enough to also be able to say that these are a bit of an audio secret I have tried a lot of speakers (not as many as Steve) these are worth it.
       
      Inspection is more than welcome at my place/cave, postage wouldn't be that easy they are quite big and if someone wants the stands they would be included in the deal for pickup.
