Description

Whatmough S33i 3-Way Floor-Standing Speakers

Overview

The Whatmough S33i floor standing speakers are the ultimate speaker in the Whatmough Signature series. Their design and built quality are up to the audiophile standards.  The S33i delivers truly spectacular sound.

The Signature S33i are based on the Performance Series P33i, with significant improvements to bring them up to Signature Series status.

Cabinet

This cabinet design offers more than just great looks – they also offer improved sound quality.  By eliminating internal parallel surfaces, the curved surfaces offer clearer and cleaner sound by minimizing internal standing waves.  Even more significantly, the curved panels are inherently more rigid and less resonant than the flat panels of a conventional speaker cabinet, which further helps to minimize coloration.

Tweeter

The Signatures S33i uses the same Ring Radiator tweeter that is used in Whatmough’s flagship speaker, the Paragon. This ultra-expensive tweeter sounds incredibly fast and detailed while also sounding extremely smooth and open. It has a very flat response extending to beyond 40KHz.

Midrange

The Signature S33i uses a 100mm cellulous fibre coned mid-range driver. This driver has the speed and transparency no bass/mid driver can match.

Bass

The Signature S33i uses two 170mm fiberglass/nomex hybrid drivers especially developed for these speakers. The cone for this speaker is made of Nomex with a skin of fiberglass. This long throw driver uses a 33mm high temperature voice coil and a large double magnet system.

This driver has very high power handling as well as a very transparent detailed sound quality.

Crossover

The S33i uses high grade audiophile film and foil capacitors in critical positions.  Air cored coils are used throughout, wound from a heavier grade of high purity Australian copper.

System

The perfect partner in the Signature Series system featuring the S8i in the centre and P12i or PFX3i speakers in the rear for a truly exceptional home cinema surround sound experience.

The S33i is fully made in Australia.

      Item: Richter Wizard Mk II speakers
      Location: Rowville, Victoria
      Price: $190 negotiable
      Item Condition: Good. Tweeter and mid-range drivers replaced-details below
      Reason for selling: These were my parents speakers-selling on their behalf. They have moved into a retirement home and no room for them. Unfortunately also too big for my house
      Payment Method: PayPal, Cash - Pickup
      Extra Info: As mentioned, these were my parents speakers - they bought from new in 1996. They had problems with them in the early years of ownership, with the tweeter and mid-range drivers replaced on each by Richter under warranty. The original drivers may not have been available as they are different. The tweeter in each is a Vifa TC20TD05-06. Mid-range in each is a Vifa P17WJ-00-08. The Woofers weren't replaced and still original Audax HT170G2. The speakers are fully functional and the cabinets and covers are in very good original condition

      Item: Neat Mystique floor standing speakers 
      Location: Inner city Melbourne
      Price: $600
      Item Condition: Very good
      Reason for selling: downsizing
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: I am the first and only owner of these speakers. 
      These are very accurate UK manufactured two way speakers. They  are very balanced and have a surprising amount of bass. They sound great with solid state or valve amps.
      I have really enjoyed listening to these speakers over the years but financial controller says they must go.
      Comes with a spare neat tweeter that is brand new and never used. (This is due to a young child pushing in a tweeter which was professionally replaced.
      I bought two tweeters just in case)
      Also comes with a set of spikes.
