Brilliant speaker, bargain. I used to sell these in my shop (quite a while ago!) and found them very well built and sonically tops.

Have to agree I have the mini bookshelf version from the same era, bought from Audio Synergy 10 years go too for 500 bucks or so but still use in a background system, lovely speakers for the price, glwts.

Cheers @Eagleeyes, nice to hear from a few of you who have had first hand experience with Axis speakers. I have had many years of enjoyment from these and couldn't have made a better investment for the money at the time IMO. I'm hoping these will find a good home with someone getting into hi-fi, not a bad place to start that's for sure..

I love my Axis speakers. Lovely sound. I have the LS88 and LS28 still in mint condition after nearly 20 years. Only change the midrange foam of the LS88 recently through Lens Wallis. Drivers are as good as new and John Reilly had a look at them when he came to my place.

Nice setup @Odyssey, thanks for sharing..  I did try to find some second hand LS88’s at one stage but gave up as there isn’t a lot in Perth obviously, the whole LS line was great in any case. 

 

I actually stayed with Axis upon upgrading (and not due to blind brand loyalty) I bought the Axis VoiceBox S after auditioning them at Wyn’s listening room (Simply Hi-Fi). They made product of the month there and it was obvious to see why! Great to see Reilly and Serhan collaboration on this design, brilliant result. I should note these puppies do

like a powerful amp behind them to bring out their best. (No pics as my system is packed up currently 😑)

I bought and sold a pair of Axis Voicboxes too, I loved them but they helped take a chunk out of a trade on a bigger item so off they went. They were very good again from Wyn. I still get shocked when I lift up my old Axis small bookshelves (no idea of model presume LS28 on size of numbers only) as they weigh age least 10 kilos each, anyway we are diverting thread from sale to a degree or maybe reinforcing to potential buyer.

 

buy them they are amaze balls for the price.😁

@Nicolai , I have the Axis Voicebox S too. Very revealing monitor without the glare. Very engaging to listen to. I drive my Axis speakers with Redgum Rgi120enr, Sansui au alpha 907mr and Sansui au-717.  All powerful and enough grunt to drive those speakers.

 

GLWTS. Your LS38 seems in very good condition and the price is pretty cheap. 🙂

Also got the Axis Voice Box S. Driving it is my Bryston 4B3 with a Tron 7 Preamp and Cary CDplayer. Very honest speakers.

Wow @arthurp..that’s some seriously nice gear behind your Voiceboxes with that setup 😃 must be a real joy.

I got the PS Stellar 700 mono blocks driving mine controlled by a PS DirectStream as a pre amp and DAC plus a few other bits n pieces...including a Rhythmic Audio 12inch servo sub, can’t wait to set it all up again!

Nice choice, great speakers. Looking at your setup there I think your speakers are just begging for some iso accoustic speaker stands to get them off that table.. I tried it with some other monitors I own and was super impressed with the result

Thank you. I hope I haven't derail your sale thread too much but your LS38 should have been sold by now.  GL. 🙂

      I am more than happy to demo for anyone that is interested in buying and I can deliver Melbourne Metro at no charge
       
      Overview
      As the larger of the two LCR speakers in the Ultra2 family, the KL-650-THX features a front-firing port for low bass extension dual 6.5-inch Cerametallic™ woofers and a 6- by 10-inch Tractrix® Horn Tweeter. The tweeter driver is a 1-inch titanium-dome compression unit designed specifically for use with horns to provide high output with low distortion. The clarity and distinction of this LCR can also be attributed to its top-of-the-line internal wiring.
      The KL-650-THX enclosure has the same dado and rabbet construction used in Klipsch professional speakers ensuring cabinet integrity in suspended applications. The Omni-Mount suspension points on this loudspeaker facilitate wall or ceiling mounting using standard hardware.

      Price: $2300 Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: 2113 State: New South Wales Payment Method: EFT / PayPal / Cash Reason for selling: No Longer Required Further information: 
      Purchased this from a fellow forum member late last year.
      Made an immediate improvement to my system, but I'm only using it as a power amp via HT bypass so the pre amp section is going to waste.
      I have played some music via USB and love the sound with my KEFs, but 90% of the time I'm watching a movie so want to move to a multi channel power amp like an Elektra.
       
      Is in mint condition.
      Comes with all the original packaging and accessories - bag, white gloves, remote, manual and polishing cloth.
      Still has warranty on it and can send original sales receipt from the first owner.
       
      Will be triple boxed if shipping is required.
      I will cover courier and insurance costs.

      The SubSonic 5i has more power and a larger bass unit than the SubZero i. It also has a very different Class H design for its power amplification. Class H is a special high efficiency amplifier design. Briefly, audio amplifiers are inherently inefficient because they are designed to have the capability of delivering great output power yet spend most of their life delivering fairly low power. Their output devices must deliver current while withstanding the high power supply “rail” voltages needed for peak outputs. With a Class H design the rail voltages are not constant. They swing high when the music demands it and stay low during quiet passages. This is achieved by a sophisticated high frequency switching power supply. Power dissipated as heat is greatly reduced and more power is available per dollar of cost. A second benefit is that they tend to have high peak power relative to their steady state power. The SubSonic 5i, for example, has 150 watts continuous but is capable of 450 watt peaks. The result is a subwoofer capable of the great transients required by dynamic music and explosive sound effects.
