Further information: The KEF Reference 1 sits on a stand but is a 3 way beast of a speaker. It’s pretty extraordinary and once you’ve heard it you can understand the glowing reviews. The detail, the midrange and the incredible power these things deliver is quite mind blowing. 
(you can tailor the bass on these and I have them set to the minimum and they are astounding on that setting ....I have no idea how they get a speaker this size to sound like a full size speaker and yet they image way better than a floor stander ....go figure)


I am the second owner, I inherited these from a mate in the UK who just went up the food chain to the Reference 3.

he’s not short of a dollar and special ordered these in Gloss Rosewood, and if amazing looks are your thing, the finish on these will make you drool. These are a custom finish so limited edition. 
they were purchased in late 2017 from Seven Oaks HiFi and I have all the invoices and documentation. I have all the original boxes and packing and have the original KEF Reference stands which are spectacular (I think like $3k option - with the little liquid spirit level embedded in the feet)

 

the condition is amazing - as you would expect from a set of speakers that cost more new than all of our first cars .....and some .....

 

I can ship anywhere at buyers cost

The Ref 1 speakers continue to amaze and reveal more and more as I upgrade my other components. With the rosewood finish and Kef reference stands these ones look like an excellent investment.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information: For sale is this quality and compact streaming amplifier with many features.
       
      It is fully functional as you need it with the Yamaha Musiccast App. Streaming services, Bluetooth (2way) Airplay etc. Has optical input as well as analog in and out, subwoofer out and in and out 12v triggers. Very solid build, comes with remote. 
       
      I bought it new early last year and not long after switched to a Yamaha AV receiver for surround, so it hasn’t had much use. 
       
      All original packaging as new.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information: For sale is my Cambridge Audio Solo MM preamp in excellent condition. 
       
      I used it for a short time while before I bought an amplifier with a built in phono stage, so now finally selling this.
       
      It has been well reviewed and features a built in low noise power supply. You can upgrade the power cable. 
       
      This is an excellent phono stage for the money IMHO.
       
      I bought this on SNA after the original owner upgraded not long after buying it from Eastwood hifi. I have listened for about 10 hours.

      Item Condition: Good Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Perth State: WA Payment Method: Reason for selling: Too big for my room Further information:
       
      I bought the speakers just before the beginning of the plague last year from Old Bloke and shipped them to WA . 
      The were custom made for JB ( John Barbuto) in the late 70ies. The cabinets are walnut veneered and up to 60 mm thick which contributes to their immense weight of approximately 150 kg each. The built quality is way beyond any usual commercial product.
      the drivers are:
      2215 15” woofers
      2420 compression drivers
      2309 horns with 2327 adapter and 2310 lens and
      2405 slot tweeters.
      all drivers are alnico. 
      Dimensions are 58 cm deep, 73 cm wide and 118 cm high.
      Despite the physical appearance they play very civilised with loads of details and impressive room even in my way too small room with 20 quality valve watts. Especially at low volumes you will get a very satisfying complete sound. You can also crank them off course until the doctor comes but there is a limit for my room , it just gets a bit overload with bass at higher levels. 
      this and the size are the reasons why I’m looking for something else.
      They work well with valves but should also with good SS amps. The previous owner used Metaxas amplification. 
      Old Bloke gave them a nice Schellack treatment before they came to me so they are looking good if you like the look of big proper speakers. I kept the protective grill over the woofers for the occasional dancing kid in my music room but they would certainly look better without.
      I thought of getting an autoformer network for them from Werner Jagusch which should bring them even further but I decided for a smaller solution. 
      I cannot see any other speaker for that price with this sort of build and sound quality and you are welcome to come and listen. I don’t know whether they work with low powered amps although sensitivity is high but you can bring your amp to try. 
      Audition is possible after the lockdown!
