Worth upgrading?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone i noticed some speakers on gumtree recently. They are JPW ML-1010 floorstanding speakers. Rated at 150w, English made. $200

 

I was thinking, would they be better than my current set? which is a pair of Energy XL-25's.

 

Thanks

For $200 i would just gab them (if you can afford to) and take them home to compare. If they are no good you can always resell and get your money back. That can be the beauty of buying second hand sometimes.

I have  ML-610.  I  use them in my office system with a Denon amp and Rotel Cd player.

 

I upgraded the capacitors in mine and it made a small improvement.

 

Unfortunately I don't know the Energy speakers.  Can you go and listen to them?

I could, but they are a fair drive away and i want to be sure they are worth getting.

I am not sure that they will be better than your existing speakers. Hope some other members can help.

      Hey guys,
      I've got a bunch of things to get rid of as I may be leaving the country for work in a few months!
      That and I need a bit of a shift in my system due to the way I use it.
      If you guys see issues with my prices please let me know! I'd prefer pick up, however postage can be arranged as I have almost all of the boxes.
      (Will post pictures tomorrow evening!)

      Incredible sub for small rooms! Great reviews!
      5- Sennheiser RS-120 $120.00
      http://www.sennheiser.com.au/au/home_en.nsf/root/private_headphones_hifi_wireless-headphones_504779
      It's some great gear! With the speakers I'll include a pair of 5m (?) Tara Labs Omni speaker cable with Banana plugs for convenience!
      With the sub I'll include my 5m Tara Labs coax lead (I think it's a higher end video one, but can't remember)
      Anyways, would prefer pick up, you can also come and have a listen providing we set up a time!
      As I have sold my amp, you'd probably have to bring yours.
      Cheers!

      Location: Adelaide
      Price: $500 Pickup
      Item Condition: Great
      Reason for selling: Too much for small bedroom, Small stereo set up better in hindsight

      Extra Info: . Energy Connoisseur C-7 Front Speakers

      Excellent Condition except bottom of mains have been modified as pictured... will need some rubber feet to be placed on wooden floor now.
      Selling due to being too much for small room (just using small pair of speakers now with less range) The full range was too much for house with frequencies below 30hz.
