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.

I have the older 803Ns and they are pretty fine units so would expect these to be the same or better.  [The 803Ns too are said to need a decent amount of power to be driven properly.  Not sure if it is therefore perverse of me to be listening to them now driven by a SET flea-watt amplifier of all 2.6 Watts; and thoroughly enjoying it.]  Good luck with the sale!

Used to have these, and these are amazing sounding units. Need to be driven by a good tube amp like jadis, or a big capable solid state.  I was driving it w 300watts class A/B and these guys can really sang. GLWS

      Klipsch  Palladiums P-F37's are a small brother of the famous P-F39F's.
      The speakers are high sensitivity so that a 10 - 15W amplifier  will work fine.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Taylors Lakes State: VIC Payment Method: Bank Transfer Cash Reason for selling: NLR Further information: Selling my Osborn Epitome Reference Elite Tower Speakers. Condition is excellent speakers are just over 1 year old bought brand new from Osborn. They have the Elite Crossover installed and sound absolutely amazing. I’m reluctantly selling due to personal reasons and also thinking of downsizing in future because I don’t have a big room. Pick up is preferred because of the size and weight 110 kg per speaker. The Epitome speakers don’t come up for sale very often and I think they are endgame speakers.

      Item Condition: Cosmetically good. Working as they should. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Richmond State: VIC Payment Method: EFT, cash Reason for selling: Upgraded Further information:   A pair of classic Proac standmounts.
      These are superb small speakers which I'm selling because owning 3 pairs of Proacs is excessive and recently I’ve scored a pair of 1SC. 
      They don’t need loads of power but they scale really well with quality amplification and aren't 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 good cosmetic  condition. There are a few scratches in the veneer on side on side of one speaker, which you can see from the photos. There are no structural problems or damage.
      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: Perfect, as new Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Hurstville State: NSW Payment Method: EFT, cash on pickup Reason for selling: downsizing Further information:
       
      I purchased these speakers brand new approximately six months ago. They are in perfect condition, without any scratches, marks, blemishes or defects of any kind. The speakers are still covered by warranty, they have been placed away from windows and have not been discoloured or exposed to the sun. They are in perfect working order, and are in as new condition. They have hardly been used. I have the original receipts 
       
      Regretfully, selling because I am moving to a smaller space.
