Sold for $350

Good god! Someone basically stole these

In all honesty I wanted to make an offer but I thought anything under $1k would have been flat out rejected (and I'm not big on throwing out lowball offers)

I'm still looking for a pair of the 202 Leadlined spkrs

But must admin, $350 is a steal!!

 

I saw these on Gumtree yesterday, too late, already sold...

 

I notice the tweeter in these spkrs is different to the one in the brochure?

Running change??

 

Not keen on those timber markings across the tops of the cabs & down the sides

But still a damn bargain!

@ bvuk2013, fyi, the tweeters on sold pair are later version than the shown in the broucher. And, the timbre finish is jarraha, shouldn't have worried you at all, it's just a grain pattern. When I had a pair, stands that came with had 4 legs each with 4cmx4cm thickness and top plate was tilted by 5 degrees. These stands maybe weighed 15kg each which improved overall sound further with very tight and deeper bass. My friend still enjoying the speakers running with ME amps.

Yes, I thought those tweeters were a later version

Also love those stands, the 5 degree tilt shows Whatmough's attention to detail

Ah well, will keep searching for the 202s......

The 202's were released in the early 90's with polyglass mid/bass replacing the polykevlar. 3 models, 202 with black vinyl wrap, 202 Export with Jarrah finish, both used kevlar tweeter and the 202 leadlined with better capacitors in crossovers and titanium tweeter. Some years later the 202 leadlines featured rounded solid wood corners. The crossovers were a 3 way design as the midbass drivers featured dual voice coils, how's that for high tech and attention to detail.

@@misternavi, I'll upload the brochure tomorrow

Maybe I should start a new thread in the Speakers section?

I'd say my material is mid to late 90s

Just reading it now & some other newspaper articles reviewing Whatmoughs

Ahh...bringing back the memories...

Did that price include the stands?

 

Are these stands available separately?

      Item: ELAC BS 243.3 Bookshelf Speakers - black
      Location: Collingwood, Melbourne
      Price: 1,200, negotiable
      Item Condition: 10/10
      Reason for selling: Raising funds
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
      Extra Info:
       
      Picked up from Vinyl Revival in Fitzroy late last year (Nov), selling to raise some funds.
       
      I auditioned a few bookshelf speakers and found these to be the best sounding and looking of the ones I tried in the two weeks I spent in there auditioning! I've had these in my apartment and they fill the space beautifully, lovely to listen to in the background but can definitely deliver if asked to. I have had them hooked up to a Sonos AMP. The jet tweeter delivers a lot of detail in the highs and they sound like much larger speakers for the size.
       
      The build and finish are beautiful. Glossy black, and really cool looking under the grille. 
       
      Bought for 1,995, selling for 30% off: https://web.archive.org/web/20190407073809/https://www.vinylrevival.com.au/collections/elac/products/elac-bs-243-2-bookshelf-pair
       
      Comes with original box and packaging. Pick up Collingwood.
