Further information:

 

These classic 3 way British speakers were built in the mid 70's and were widely regarded as highly efficient and musical.  

 

Original specs:

  • Impedance 4-8 Ohm
  • Sensitivity 90dB
  • Frequency response 20Hz - 40kHz
  • x2 HF1300 mid-range, HF2000 dome tweeter, 12" bass driver, 12" bass radiator
  • 360 x 810 x 280mm teak veneer enclosures (W x H x D)
  • 19.5kg each

 

These lovely speakers have only had one non-smoking owner.  In 2007 I had them fully re-built by Total Recoil in Melbourne (including recapping, reconing of the bass drivers and radiators and new tweeters) and had the cabinets French polished.  They are very easy to drive (I have been using a 25W IA) and are In pristine condition given that they are around 45 years old!  They should appeal to the collector or vintage speaker enthusiast. 

 

* 'Covid- safe' auditioning is possible.

 

29/10/20:  Please note the price reduction.  I am keen that these lovely speakers find a new home.  Local pickup is preferred.

The drivers themselves weren’t replaced, just reconed. They had paper cones that were starting to perish after more than 30 years.  I reckon the restored version is better than the original!

      Item Condition: Mint, As New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Central Coast NSW State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Getting out of vinyl Chord Huei MM/MC Phono Preamplifier
       
      Barely used, perhaps about 5 hours of use in total so its in mint condition.  Has 2 of its 3 year warranty still remaining. Comes with all of the original packaging .
       
      I bought this along with a Rega P6 (also for sale) to give vinyl a try but I dont think vinyl is for me.  Tried it with my Rega Ania MC and it sounds great.  I wanted a phono that had a lot of control for the gain so I could eliminate as much noise as possible and this certainly gave me that.

      - Revel M106 Pair in Piano Gloss Black, with geniune Revel M series stands
      - Perfect mint condition
      - 5-10 hours use only
      - Purchased in Sept 2019
      - Factory protective film still on sides of speakers, which makes them appear marked/scratched on photos. Film has been removed today and not a single mark on them.
      - Arguably the best bookshelf speaker on the market. Pair them with a sub and you will have a setup that will rival speakers many times the price.
      - Used with a Benchmark HPA4 + AHB2 combo and sounded fantastic! 
      - Retail Price $3,495 for speakers + $799 for stands.

      Item Condition: New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: SURRY HILLS State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, cash, EFT Reason for selling: Not needed A few months ago I decided to turn the great-sounding but ugly and complicated DIY 3 way actively EQed open baffle speakers I've been enjoying for many years into almost-as-good sounding, simple, WAF-friendly speakers I could maybe sneak into the living room.
       
      I was using a couple of MiniDSPs and a big ugly 8 channel amp. 
       
      My initial thought was buy a couple of MiniDSP PWR-ICE125 plate amps and build them into the cabinets with a hybrid passive xover.
       
      When they arrived it became obvious that wasn't much more simple, so I switched to a passive crossover for each speaker with one PWR-ICE doing amping and EQ for the pair.
       
      This is working well.
       
      So I don't need the second PWR-ICE125. 
       
      It is brand new in the box and comes with the optional backbox so you can use it free-standing or as a plate amp.
       
      The amp section is B&0 Icepower. The DSP section is the usual MiniDSP but with digital and analog inputs, and best of all wireless control.
       
      https://www.minidsp.com/products/plate-amplifiers/pwr-ice125
       
      Pick up in Surry Hills or I can ship.
       
      The pic is the amp I am using. The one you are buying is still in its box.
