Further information: 

I've owned this pair of Tannoys for about 3 years. These have the DC386 drivers/crossovers, also known as Arden's mkII or 3828, built into beautifully crafted Arundel cabinets with the cork finished front baffle.

The cabinets have a square cross section which achieves the same volume as the original Arden mki including the bass reflex port, I know this as I measured both for comparison purposes.

The roll surrounds were replaced by Tom Manning from SpeakerBits in 2018 with the correct, genuine surrounds as can be seen from the pictures, you won't have to worry about it for a long time. 

The finish of the cabinets were a bit dull when I got them so I have cleaned them up with 0000 steel wool and lightly sanded before applying Howards Restor-a-Finish which really brought out the stunning book matched timber veneer finish. Lastly the veneered cabinets were treated with Howard's Feed-n-Wax treatment. 

 

For those considering these speakers, they are a lot more space friendly and less intrusive than the Arden cabinets due to their square footprint with no compromises in their classic big Tannoy dual concentric sound.

 

Power handling: 10-200 Watts @ 8 Ohms

Size: 49 x 49 x 100cm (W x D x H)

Weight: 46kg each approx.

Great pair of speakers ! Offering that large scale tannoy sound that now costs about 3 times this price , due to the lower production numbers I doubt we will ever see another pair of arundels for sale any time soon  !

I've let the seller know that I can pack these safely in a solid crate for safe shipping and can load with a forklift at this end to save on costs, though I am aware the preference is for a local sale.

Ive got the original tannoy Arden mk2 and they are amazing speaker. There like quality headphones. These speakers listed are the same drivers. They sound really good with low powered amps in big rooms but in a smaller room you can use a high powered amp to control the 15 inch bass driver. When it comes to dual concentric tannoys are the best. Also they are known for there 15inch drivers.

Having listened to this speakers many times in person, I can guarantee that the new owner is going to enjoy them and fall in love with Tannoys.

The Audiophilliac posted some videos featuring the large 15" dual concentric Tannoy speakers, including an interview with Nelson Pass showing his Listening room.

 

Mr Pass Labs referred to Tannoy as "the reference standard speaker at Pass Labs" - I thought this was pretty cool.

Eventually I might step from my dual concentric ‘wannabes’ (Beyma’s) to some MG15’s, but these cabinets are truly lovely piece of carpentry. GLWTS

      I have always wanted to try this cable.
       
      It didn’t work for me because I wanted it for my turntable to phono-stage and its noise rejection in my environment was not adequate.

      Fitted with Kimber Ultraplate™ RCA type connector.

      I purchased some secondhand Contour speakers a few years ago and the bases were a bit knocked around, so I purchased new ones from Denmark.

      This is one of the old bases, I discarded the other one but I kept the base inserts with the spikes.

      If you have some Contour S3.4’s with bases that need refurbishing you could swap them out one at a time and not lose the use of your audio.

      Alternatively, if you wanted to make bases or outriggers for any brand of speaker, these inserts and spikes would be an ideal and cheap way to start.

      If the wooden base isn’t needed and you want to just the inserts and spikes, I would be happy to remove them and ship just the eight inserts and spikes.

      The inserts and spikes look to be the same as fitted on the Dynaudio Confidence speakers that I have now.

      Item Condition: 8/10 - Connectors show obvious age, rest is mint. Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Vaucluse, 2030 State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal Friends & Family, Cash Reason for selling: Too many cables Further information:
       This is a 1.5M Accuphase RCA interconnect cable. Honestly accuphase are the best sounding cables I have heard.
      Crazy detail, sparling top end, deep and tight bass.

      These cables are from the Kensonic/Accuphase era and aren't easy to find these days.
      Market value for the 1.5M version floats around $180 AUD. After shipping costs during COVID, taxes and the free Aus-wide delivery I'm offering, this is priced a lot less than what I paid.
      Connectors show some signs of age but a NOS pair of these in the 1M version is currently available for $410.
