Location: Parramatta NSW
Price: $1900
Item Condition: excellent restored
Reason for selling: Too many speakers
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only


Extra Info: Hi Putting up for sale beautiful pair of Tannoy 10 inch Monitor golds in original cabinets from the 70's. These sound excellent.

I put them as excellent for age please consider these are nearly 50 years old same as average Tannoy user I would think.

The person I purchased from had them restored with some work to cross overs, modern terminals, cabs re polished etc, they do have some repairs to some corners, some veneer chips as would be expected I think photos make them seem worse than they are.

My original idea was to have new cabs made for a 10  incher similar to modern Glenairs etc and like most people never got around to it. 

In the end my interest has dwindled so putting them up for sale.

 

The sound is great to my ears.They easily bested the Spendors SP2/3R2 I had being rich, detailed and dynamic. 

They wont reproduce like 15 inch speaker, but remember they are still 10 inch driver so still have more bass than most stand mount speakers.

These were my first intro to Tannoys , which I remained converted ever since and would make a similar buy for someone else.

Happy to demo or drop off at a Pack and Send for interstate.

Looking at the cloth and the binding posts I reckon these used to be mine several years ago.

Yep they sounded good then.

I moved on to 15s after this.

Any pics with the covers off...

sorry I'm not terribly techno minded so I don't have pics of drivers as I would need to unscrew the backs., if i get a buyer who wants them subject to final inspection then I can do it if not for the moment I prefer to leave them alone.

 

Any other questions pls contact me

Hi Anthony

I think you are right thanks its clears things up i wasn't sure whom i purchased from.

They have been a great speaker, can you update me on who did the work on them I'm sure it would give confidence to a potential buyer.

Hi Seb

 

They were smaller than yours, the SP2/3R2 not a bad speaker very natural, but a bit polite and sluggish in comparison and these seem more expressive at least to me.

I would love to hear the SP 100 one day but they seem difficult to drive and placement  compared to tannoys which fit against the wall plus i would say more tube friendly, although the sugden power amp drives both well but the tannoys worked with a variety of tube amps even as low as 12W pc , the best I thought was the Mac 225 at 22W pc

      Location:Perth
      Price: $3000
      Item Condition:As New
      Reason for selling: No longer required, change of direction, keeping separates.

      Extra Info: Purchased from Audio Trends on the 23/7/19 with a view to streamlining my home set up. I've decided to keep my separates system. Able to convince the girl 🎉 that the box's aren't that bad.
      I set the NAD up in my system on the 29/10/19, had it powered up for less than 5hrs, I would consider it as brand new. Has been boxed away since.

      Item: Linn LP12
      Location: Perth
      Price: 1600 ono
      Item Condition: good
      Reason for selling: small child is now almost ready to destroy everything I own. Best it go somewhere safe.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Early Linn LP12 for sale equipped with Rega RB300 tonearm and Linn Asak moving coil cartridge. I am told that I am the third owner of this beauty with the original owner having it for many decades. The second owner got a newer Linn rather than upgrade. The fluted plinth is in pretty good condition with a few small nicks as seen in the photos. Lid is crack free with only minor swirling. Hinges replaced by myself so are almost new. No idea about the hours on the cartridge but it plays without a hitch and stylus looks very straight. I've put on less than 50 hours personally having only got it right before our child was born. It has been well looked after by all owners and I even have the original documents. Bonus shim for the tonearm in case you need to raise the height to accommodate a different cartridge. Happy for inspections for anyone in Perth.

      Item: peachtree MB3 speakers
      Location: Melbourne 
      Price: $50
      Item Condition: some light scratches but not too bad
      Reason for selling: not using
      Payment Method: Pickup only
      Extra Info:
       Was part of a set with the peachtree music box but am hanging on to the amp. The speakers would make good computer or background speakers for someone. They don't completely embarrass themselves and sound pretty decent, and solidly built but they are little compact things after all.

      Item: alpine pdx m12 sub amp
      Location: kingaroy 
      Price: 400
      Item Condition: good used
      Reason for selling: no longer running sub
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      bought a while ago and has had about 2 years  of use. 
      top of the line model, Rrp $999.
      compact class D so runs cool and fits anywhere, will drive any sub.
      have a new baby so don't need a sub in the car now.
       
      good condition but some writing is rubbing off the Top, I used some sort of cleaning polish that stripped the printing a bit. Sorry. 😢
       
       
      Amp is about the size of a decent hardcover book by the way, so could be posted for $30 odd just about anywhere.
       
      also have a Type x subwoofer (driver only, box got damaged) I'd do for $250 with the amp (their best dual voice coil sub) or $300 separately. Currently have the driver in storage so can't take pictures of it at the moment. Here's a link for your perusal though.
