    Wow, that's a beautifully put-together system. There is some info on the speakers here: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/r.../roadtour.html - they look like amazing VFM here.

    Hope your issue resolves itself Jim, I've been here a couple of times so wish you the very best. Somebody that buys this gear might give you a first refusal if ever they choose to put it back on the market, I've asked with stuff I was particularly attached to.

    Personal issue

    Really sorry to hear your need to sell .... have been to the brink myself .... and may yet still have my hand forced.

    I wish you the best with the sale - that's a fine system you have had.

    Jesus Jim, I hope things come together soon again for you.

    For anyone thinking about buying it, the Remyio is amazing and the Cafrae's are brilliant too.

    It is a Lowther DX4.

    There's also an active bass unit, a Peerless 10" XLS.

    If I had the funds available, I'd not hesitate to buy these.

    Again, thanks for the comments guys.

    Graham is correct on the drive units in the Carfraes.

    re the Carfraes, i bought this pair from a chap in Devon about 3 years ago who turned out to be a close neighbour of Jim Carfrae and this pair were one of the very first, if not the first, commercial pair that JC built. I contacted JC directly before buying them and he confirmed their provenance and was very hepful.

    The speakers are about 10 years old which I guess means the DX4s are about nicely run-in! The bass units each contain a JC bespoke amp with variable crossover and volume controls.

    There are pictures here taken at the June bakeoff : http://www.hifiwigwam.com/showthread...8th-June/page4

    Each speaker is about 145cm tall, 95cm deep and 38cm wide. They split into two for transportation - the horn assembly weighs about 40kg each and the powered bass units about 60kg each - you will need a large van to move these! Still for sale at £3750 for one of the best speakers, let alone horn designs, ever made.

    Hi Jimbo,
    Re speakers: I currently use Posselt which at 93db don't quite cut the mustard with my 845SE amps but have the advantages of small footprint and being (relatively) both room and position insensitive. I could be tempted to your speakers .... Can please you advise whether the LBH's came with any room sizing and position advice? I've Googled all relevant search terms and come up with nothing of any use to me.
