Further information: Needing no introduction, these one owner 800 D2 Diamonds, finished it glorious Rosewood, where sold by us in 2014. They've just been traded and present in excellent secondhand condition. We've got these in-store for 15K but they are $13,500 for a potentially lucky StereoNET member. Put simply, they are superb. It's always subjective, but it's hard to think of a speaker that could match these at this price.

This was a tough call, and we apologise. There is no way that we can guarantee that they would arrive undamaged without the original cartons. Regards, Len

I wasn't being sarcastic, it just means I don't need to searching for money :D

 

Good luck for the Sydney buyers.

Still very happy with mine, purchased from LWA in 2013. With the right amplification they really sing.  

At the advertised price and in excellent condition, an absolute bargain. 

 

Heck, I'm almost tempted to buy them for a second system.

These speakers love plenty of current. The best I have ever heard them sound was on a 100watt Class 'Á' Musical Fidelity. Regards, Len

Electrocompaniet are well regarded with these beasts. Beautiful speakers (and I don’t even like B&W that much!!!). GLWTS.

I agree. We are no longer an EC dealer, but I still believe that it is one of the most underrated brands in the industry. Regards, Len

Lovely.  These hardly ever come up for sale and are a bargain at this price - IMHO.

Hi Len,   They are shown with their adjustable "feet".   Do they come with the original accessories kits and castors?
