WTB: Upper mid-level / lower hi-end floorstanders


Recommended Posts

Item: Upper mid-level / lower hi-end floorstanders (see below for examples)
Price Range: Depends what's on offer and value for money 
Item Condition:  Used
Extra Info:

 

Testing the market for what might be out there in terms of upper mid-level / lower hi-end floorstanders (see below for examples).

 

I'm ready to buy if offer stacks up and you don't want the hassle of going through the advertising process (I've got gear here that I'll simply keep rather than go through the painfulness of selling - I suspect there are other people out there in a similar boat).

 

Generally I'm pretty open regarding sonic signature and can find something to "love" in most speakers (at this price point it shouldn't be a huge issue).

 

Not looking to get ripped (if you're offering something at 80% of retail I'm probably not your guy).

 

Preferences but not essential:

 

  • Prefer nice wood grain (but black would be OK);
  • East Coast preferred (just for ease of transport - but not essential for right gear);
  • Willingness to ship (but depending on location - AND LOCKDOWN STATUS - I'm be prepared to travel to pick up the right speaker);
  • Open-minded audiophile happy to talk things through and help me make the right choice;

 

Examples of speakers I would have investigated VERY STRONGLY if I'd been ready / quick enough are as below (suspect I'm not alone on some of these).

I am going to list my Duntech Princess' soon. It's the Crown Prince in a nicer outfit.

Throwing my own into the mix:

 

Rrp has since bumped to $10,999 - they are sort of Dyn-ish and less than 12 months old.

I've never heard the Rubicons but I did like my Dali 400s back in the 90s. I'll PM shortly.

2 options I have for sale for you.

 

 

 

I've been eyeing the WARs - but I'm a long way away and audition would be near impossible... :(

 

They certainly short-list on "interesting" and "uniqueness"

Well ask anyone who has commented on them who has heard them, they are so very very good and only bettered by a set of Wilson Benesche Chimeras with matching subwoofers . 


For the money you cannot lose, I could set them up and video them but agin thats still not very realistic.

Update: Still looking but this COVID lockdown thing is making looking nearly impossible - I'd only drop money on a speaker I've heard before "unseen" - certainly can't justify buying something unseen and never heard (almost certain to end in tears) apologies for the frustration this creates....

Hi Jason. Though not strictly floorstanders, I've got a pair of Harbeth SHL5 Signatures, with shot loaded stands, that may tickle your fancy? In Melbourne though......

Cheers,

Brian

      Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Canberra State: Australian Capital Territory Payment Method: PayPal or bank transfer Reason for selling: Upgrading Hi everyone 
       
      I’m listing my pmc twenty5.23’s for sale as I’m upgrading.
       
      I won’t be able to post them until next week but thought I’d throw them up now. I’m happy to take a small deposit and the full amount just prior to me sending them. Hopefully this gives people a little time to get cash together or sell other things to finance them. 
       
      These speakers changed the game for me. They aren’t big but sound massive. I’ve honestly struggled to find any speakers under 10k (even some over 10k) that even come close. The sound staging is wide and pin point accurate, the sound is extremely balanced and rich and the lower frequencies are more than covered. They are also not fussy with amps or positioning so you can put them anywhere and get a great sound. These are widely regarded as the sweet spot in the pmc range. They also have a 20 year warranty from pmc. 
       
      The speakers present in mint condition and have been well looked after. I have all the original packaging and happy to ship. 
       
      I also have a matching PMC centre speaker if you’re keen on the bundle. Add $1500 if you want it. Otherwise I’m happy to keep it.  
       
      Notes:
       
      - free shipping is only to metro locations. Country or international buyers will need to pay difference between the cost of shipping to metro & their location - clause added as I got caught out with someone from Jakarta a few months ago.
       
      - take 10% off for local pickup in Canberra. 
       
      - buyer pays PayPal fees (+3%) or I’m happy to accept cash, bank transfer or trusted PayPal payment. 
       
      Thanks.
