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.

There really is something special about these speakers.  They sound good with most genres due to that magical midrange.

 

I lusted after one after I heard a pair at andrei's.  When I finally got mine, it remained my main pair for 3 years.

 

Good luck with the sale, you shouldn't need it :-).

daym I had a clone 1s and it was awesome.  I sold them just last week I was hoping to test it with the real one but I waited for a while with no luck.  The clone I have is very musical so I assume this will even be more special than the clone.   This should be gone quickly! :)

Not sure where bnew but I got mine here and spent about 500 on the crossovers. I would've loved to test it against the real 1s.   I woudve jumped on to these speakers it was 2 weeks ago

Only a couple of pairs of these 1s or 1 sc have come up the last decade. People just don’t sell them. Amazed they’re still here actually.

      Item Condition: Vgc Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Cronulla State: NSW Payment Method: Cash eft paypal Reason for selling: Too many speakers You are looking at a really nice pair of Phillips 9710 fullrange alnico drivers
      these are among the top end of vintage speakers, if you’ve never heard a pair then you’re in for a treat, they need a good solid box, you can use a vented enclosure, but many have used open baffles and even horn enclosures
      they are in fantastic condition, one cone is a different colour from the other
      this was not unusual, it is not from sunlight!as these have lived behind fabric their whole life until recently 
      I am loathe to let these go! But I need to raise some funds, if they don’t sell I will build them up in some nice cabs and flog em, I have a nice pair of boxes to suit these, front hole not cut yet as I have many fullrange drivers that will suit the boxes.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Narangba State: QLD Payment Method: EFT , Paypal , Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Moving up Tannoy ladder Further information :
       
      - Speakers are only 12 mths old and I am the sole owner , these would be only just broken in.
      - I have in the past month applied the supplied wax to the cabinets which has enhanced the timber finish , remaining wax will be supplied with the speakers along with the other Tannoy goodies.
      - At this point the sale is collection only as a recent medical procedure inhibits my ability to pack and freight.
      - Pricing is firm ( these are around 13K new ).

      Hey folks,
       
      I just upgraded to LCD-4z and these amazing cans are not needed anymore and looking for a new home

      They are amazing headphones and the drivers are literally new (upgraded to Fazor by Addicted to Audio) and the new carbon fibre headband really makes a difference in terms of wearability and comfort.

      They also sport brand new pads.

      As you can see from the pictures, they're literally perfect.

      Hi l’m selling my Ayon CD- 07s
      Tube CD player and dac. Player functions perfectly, really lush analog tube sound to this player.
      Comes with remote control and all original packaging so courier interstate sale not a problem.
       
      Features & Design

      Full-featured Tube Top Loader CD-Player
      Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage for single-ended & balanced operation

      Signal Path
      We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our pre-amplifiers to date have used single-ended pure class-A circuitry. The shorter the signal path is, the less possibility of sonic degradation from various sources, including the wire itself. Even on the circuit boards, the copper traces are kept to a very minimum length. The completely redesigned circuit board provides a more straightforward and direct approach to the signal paths. 
      Logical sequenced soft-start power up for extended tube life Warm up function 0dB negative feedback  (of any kind ) Ultra short signal path Simplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability Low output impedance for driving long runs interconnect to an amplifier, and any tube or solid state power amp No solid state devices in the analog tube output (signal path )     Minimal discrete wiring for optimum signal propagation No followers or buffers in the signal path No DC servo that degrades the signal High quality parts throughout Fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship Separate analog output stage for left and right channel Burr Brown D/A converter Upsampling 24bit/192kHz USB input 24/192kHz asynchronous Digital output & input - S/PDIF (RCA) Power Supply
      The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration. Separate power transformer windings and filters provide total isolation between the input and output stage which makes this a pure power source and it is a critical attribute for a 5687 output stage. We also use electrolytic capacitors with much larger storage capacity to make up for the loss in filtering when using resistors in lieu of inductors.
      R-Core / Low noise – insulated power transformer for digital & analog Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification Regulated DC filament supplies with soft start for 5687 AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit. 8 separate voltage regulators Components
      The type of parts used therefore must have a synergistic relationship to the circuit they are placed in. It is this relationship of which type of part to use where, that ranks our products apart from the mass.
      Selected, premium quality passive components used in all applications High speed  & high quality audiophile grade coupling capacitors High quality Special tube sockets with gold pins MKP capacitors High quality – RCA & XLR jack Gold-plated industrial grade PCB Mechanical Construction
      The high grade aluminum chassis impart a richer, more lustrous tonality with a cleaner back-ground and less hash and grain. All brushed anodized anti-vibration-resonance and non-magnetic chassis’s are fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship.
      Modified suspension system to isolate the CD-transport from mechanical  vibrations Anti-vibration magnetic integral CD-clamp system combined with dark acrylic CD-cover AC phase polarity control indicator The aluminium feet are resonance absorbing types Metal remote commander Chassis finish: black / chrome   Specifications

      McIntosh, the Rolls Royce of amplifiers. This brand brings you the finest manufacturer quality, stunning looks and ear drum blowing performance!
       
      The C2300 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier is the long-awaited replacement to the C-2200 valve pre-amp. It combines a suite of potent engineering enhancements with smart, user-programmable features to deliver a truly extraordinary audio preamplifier. Each input may have the bass, treble, and mono/stereo mode adjusted and stored in memory. When individual inputs are selected, these settings will engage as preset by the listener. All adjustments may be made either from the front panel or remote control. Two 12AX7a Vacuum Tubes are used for each of three sections: the Moving Magnet phono section, the Moving Coil section, and the high-level preamp section. Its phono sections are fully adjustable on the fly, so the listener may change impedance or loading settings as the record plays. A high performance headphone amplifier with a 1/4" headphone jack is included.
