Hi everyone! 

 

I've got a mate who's happy to sell me his old speakers for $500. 

 

Just wanting to know what kind of amplifier would need to drive these well? I'm still happy with my Audioengine A2+ powered speakers but this offer seems too good to turn down! 

 

Help me out! There's all this mixed information about Mission and whether their Made in China status has negatively influenced their products! 

 

Thanks anyone and everyone in advanced

Hi there,

I assume you mean a pair of 796 SE (special edition)speakers ??

They are made in China by IAG.

Excellent speakers in my opinion and a bargain for the price.... they were only made in gloss black or rosewood

Just make sure the drivers and tweeters are undamaged and all will be fine. Any amp over 60watts per channel will drive them fine    :)

Hi, 

 

Those are the ones! I've got an elementary Marantz 7.1 that probably does 100 WPC at best. 
2 Floor standing and a centre for $500 does seem pretty elite hahah. Might have to upgrade to a bigger power amp! 

Cheers @hififan

      Item Condition: Working as they should. Cosmetically good. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Richmond State: VIC Payment Method: EFT, cash - price is firm. Reason for selling: Upgraded Further information: 
      A pair of classic Proac standmounts.  These are superb small speakers which Im selling only because I’ve scored a pair of 1 sc. 
      They don’t need loads of power but they scale really well with quality amplification and arent embarrassed by fancier partnering equipment. They are particularly well suited to tubes - I’ve had them on a Weston Topaz and they were wonderful. On my Magtech they sang. 
      They are in reasonable cosmetic  condition. There is no structural damage but you can see a few scratches in the photos. Never worried me but they aren’t in perfect cosmetic nick. 
      You probably know their reputation - it’s very well deserved - but there are plenty of reviews on the net.

      Buyer must audition to confirm condition on pick up.

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Ryde State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on Pickup, Paypal Reason for selling: Not using Further information:
       
      A pair of KEF LS50 speakers with stands, ready to go to a good home 
       
      Both items are in very good condition as pictured, stands have couple of minor marks on base. 
       
      Not sure as to the model of the stands - they are half-filled with sand so are heavy to lift!

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: NSW Payment Method: Cash, PayID Reason for selling: Need a smaller system B&W 803s floor standers. I absolutely love these speakers. Close to full range, they are very tight in the mid and bass and have an airy side to them. These are good size speakers. You get that enveloping sound with high sound pressure levels. Again, great for movies, but also excellent with music. They do need some power to be driven properly, but most modern, decent amps will do the trick. 
       
      These have been very well cared for and are like new. Stunning cabinetry from B&W in the cherry finish with the famous yellow drivers. The pics don't do the cabinets justice really. 
       
      Regrettable sale, but moving to a smaller room/setup.
