FS: KEF Reference Series Model 105 Series II w/ Spare B110 Mid Drivers

Recommended Posts

Item: KEF Reference Series Model 105.2 with spare B110 midrange drivers (matched pair)
Location: Sydney
Price: $2,300
Item Condition: Drivers, Excellent. Mid and tweeter housing, Excellent. Wooden cabinets, Some blemishes but generally good
Reason for selling: Downsizing
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
Extra Info: Beautiful example of top end British 70s laid back HIFI sound. I have had some wonderful moments with these speakers. Need a lot of juice to get those massive bass units under control. Had it paired with McIntosh MC7300 which I have also listed for sale. Found a pair of brand new old stock mid drivers which I had installed (drivers alone cost me $400). Will include original matched pair of mid drivers. To my ears I couldn't tell the difference when I installed the new mids. Bass drivers were rebuilt by previous owner just before I bought them. Ordered a crossover kit upgrade but to my surprise found that the crossovers had already been upgraded so will include all the new caps from crossover kit. These speakers sit on removable casters which are in perfect working order but I would recommend removing the casters and placing on low stand. I have also used sorbathane half spheres instead of casters on floating floorboards with great results. Also have a thin layer of sorbathane between the Mid and tweeter housing and bass cabinets which I will include which I feel help give more clarity. One mid dustcover is missing. Have enough original spare dustcover cloth to redo bass covers if you ever feel the need.

I had a pair of these from 1988 to 2002 and loved them. Rich sound, great for LP as not too prone to showing every bit of surface noise!

Used to run them with Phase Linear Pre-power.

      All totally silent with SSDs running the latest version of ROON ROCK
       
      Small enough to fit on a bookshelf and use far less power than a full PC or laptop so you can really leave them running. 
       
      Your wife/girlfriend/dog/cat wont even notice.

      Extra Info: 
       
      Pure Class A  2x35 Watt PSET (Parallel Set) which is used in the very high end tube
      amplifiers like Aries Cerat $30K USD. This gives you uncompromising power to run in pure class A almost any 89+ db speakers.  Lack of power is Achilles weak spot of most tube amplifiers and I believe PSET is the best solution used by the very high end manufacturers. Legendary Mastersound brand - makes PF100 tube amplifier $50K USD. Fabulous musical EL34 tubes. To my knowledge, this model is absolutely the best value for integrated tube amplifier in that price range; made in Italy but priced similarly to comparable Chinese models. Includes very good phono pre-amplifier - same as in the flagship models.  This is Box R version with remote control (cost $330 AUD extra).

      Item Condition: Excellent, Used
      Reason for selling: New Project/Custom Build
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This is a complete custom build from the ground up based on a Rega P series design. Raw cost of materials and items was over $6000.
       
      Plynth milled from single block of billet alloy on CNC router (around 15kg) Finished in red automotive paint Followed same dimmensions as a Rega P3 plynth. 5x Maglev feet (tried with 3, 4 and 5 configurations and 5 was the best) IsoKinetic IsoDrive Power Supply with 33/45 speed selection IsoKinetic 25mm Acrylic Platter IsoKinetic IsoSub Groovetracer Machined Subplatter IsoKinetic Phosphor Bronze Bearing Sleeve IsoKinetic Ruby Bearing + Spindle Oil (lifetime supply left in bottle) IsoKinetic Puck/Stabiliser IsoKinetic Red Thing Silicone Belt + Spare New One in Packet IsoKinetic MTB-D Motor Thrust Bearing + Motor Isolation Mod for Premotec Motor Premotec 50hz Synchronous Motor Audiomods Series 4 Tonearm with Series 5 bearing, lift and arm hold. Full VTA Adjustment - no VTA adjuster.  All original weights and headshell weights/spacers included to adjust to any cart. Custom Acrylic Dust Cover to accomodate arm height No cart included, but I did have an Ortofon MC25e on it and it was stunning.  
      *I have covered the hole bottom left corner where a power button would have gone if I didnt use the external motor PSU and controller with a samurai silver coin from WA mint. So the turntable is dubbed "The Samurai"
       
      For interstate buyers, it will be professionally crated and foam lined for shipping with tonearm back in original transport box. Shipping Australia wide with insurance included.
       
      For those that want to know where to from here - my next build will be in the similar vein...but using the MK6 Audiomods tonearm for primary, 200mm monster delrin platter,  ceramic bearing sleeve, larger billet plynth with 2 armboards for future arm addition and external motor and controller.
