SOLD: FS: Shindo Petite Latour Loudspeakers

Recommended Posts

Item: Shindo Petite Latour Loudspeakers
Location: Brisbane
Price: $9,900 
Item Condition: 7/10, some minor marks, second owner
Reason for selling: Upgrade to full size Shindo Latour
Payment Method: Negotiable
Extra Info:

 

This is a somewhat unique opportunity to purchase a pair of Shindo "Petite" Latour Loudspeakers, rarely available on the second hand market, even more-so in Australia.

 

These are the "Alnico" version using modified Altec 1" HF and 12" LF drivers, Western Electric/Altec horn, proprietary adjustable crossover networks, and hand tuned resonate cabinets. The cabinets are finished in beautiful Pau Ferro (rosewood) veneer with trademark speaker legs. Sound is as good as they look, rich, coherent and open. The ideal compliment to any full Shindo system.

 

The cabinets are approximately 45cm wide x 45cm deep and 120cm tall, the legs add around 6cm to the width at the base of the cabinets, weight is unknown but I estimate around 30-35kg per speaker, so not exactly 'petite' by modern standards.

 

I have rated them 7/10 due to not being the original owner, there are some minor hairline scratches and small marks from previous shipping. There is also some fading of the cabinets from sunlight exposure, visible in the attached photographs around the grill area, otherwise they are in original condition. They are approximately 5 years old (2007). Reason for sale is the desire to upgrade to the full size Shindo Latour.

 

As above I am located in Brisbane, but will ship Australia wide, or even international, freight costs will be quoted on an individual basis to serious buyers. Approximate crated dimensions are 120cm (L) x 66cm (W) x 145cm (H), and ~100 Kg if you would like to obtain your own estimates.

 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions, or would like more pictures.

Do you have any specs on these?  I can't find any on the 'net.

There are no published specs that I am aware of, you could email Shindo, use the larger Latour as a guide, or infer them from similar Altec drivers (414 and 802/806)

      Item: JBL Authentics L8
      Location: Sydney, Alexandria (or office at Greenwich on weekdays)
      Price: $500 (prefer pickup but happy to ship at buyers expense)
      Item Condition: Perfect used condition
      Reason for selling: No longer used
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Used as my office speaker before purchasing the Naim Mu-So i also have advertised. Has been sitting in storage for about a year finally gotten around to clearing it out. No issues at all with the unit and the sound is great for a smaller room or even as a sound bar. The amount of bass is also quite surprising for the size. Comes with all original accessories and original packaging.

      Item: Klipsch La Scala speakers 
      Location: Perth metro
      Price:  $3500
      Item Condition: Great for their age, 1978 ish Alnico 
      Reason for selling: Told to shed some gear
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash,  Bank Tranfer COD Only
      Extra Info: East coast buyers, can do live video demo via FaceTime 
      These have the favoured Alnico Magnets, serviced X Overs and updated Mundorf Capacitors, some body bracing to tighten bottom end.
      All drivers work spot on.
      Sound wise, these have a uncanny ability to project a very large wall of sound with fine detail and dynamic authority.  Impressive as I am normally into Electrostats, Planar and Ribbon speakers. Very versatile and allow use of Set Valve Amps due to their 100db efficiency.
