  1. I have for sale my Usher Be-718 loudspeakers. In gloss piano black with wooden side cheeks. Immaculate condition and with all original boxes and packaging (soft cloth bags for each speaker and so on). They’re very well reviewed speakers with a very good reputation. Fantastic, well-controlled, bass for a speaker of their size. Lovely treble and midrange too. £800 including courier to UK buyers. Which is a steal considering their original RRP and the cost of transporting speakers that weigh more than 17kg a piece. https://6moons.com/audioreviews/usher2/tinydancer.html https://www.stereophile.com/standloudspeakers/508ush/index.html http://www.soundstagenetwork.com/revequip/usheraudio_be718.htm Thanks for looking! (apologies for the sideways pics!)
  2. £995 (or £990 and a pint) to that man over there with too many speakers already. Most of you know the story; if not, you can do the search thing. "Spare" piano black ones now up for adoption, though I won't part with them until after they have strutted their stuff at the Kegworth Show on 15th March, most probably feeding off some Sugden goodness. Various photos here don't do them justice, must take some fresh ones: From original seller (I am the second owner; the first had them as his main/only speakers for 35 years...) Alongside Nick's Spendor Classic 200's Alongside my teak pair (bought from Manny of this parish, brought back to spec and now comfortably ensconced in Kendal apartment ) In Fanthorpe's demo room sucking on Sugden Not as imposing in the flesh as they can look in photos where the height is what attracts attention; in the wood, they are tall, slim and IMHO elegant. They also sound lovely; if I mention big soundstage you might think that is as much to do with upstream components but I'm going to mention it anyway. As @rabski reminded us some time ago: "Graham Tricker described them as "...probably the least compromised loudspeaker we have ever heard", which is quite something coming from the man behind Tron". Come along and have a listen. Bring your bulging wallet or Paypal details to avoid disappointment. I'll shake hands on a sale any time from when they arrive in Kegworth on Sat 14th but they can't be taken until 5pm Sun 15th. You know what to do.
  3. Hi all, with the advent of the Karousel upgrade to the LP12 I read a lot of good stuff. I collected a few clips kindly shared by a member on the Lejonklou forum, and also my trusted dealer sent me a comparison of Akurate LP12s with Cirkus vs Karousel. Auditioning these files leaves me puzzled, as the difference is much smaller, than I had expected from the chatter in the forums, and my dealers words. But I had a similar effect, when auditioning clips of KRadikal vs ARadikal on my system. The difference appeared more pronounced, when I played the same files on my Pono player into my Beyerdynamic T51p cans. (Can't test this with the bearing clips now, as the Pono and cans are in my 2nd home 420 km away from here.) So I wonder if my amp, or speakers are holding too much back, and if spending into a Radikal to get the Karousel is the best investment for me. My current chain is: LP12 - Cirkus - Lingo2 - Kore - Ekos2 - Krystal - Uphorik - KRDSM - AEXBOX6/K - C6100/D - AV5140/EspekT I'm using SO+ which my trusted dealer and I finetuned applying tunedem. Any experiences / opinions? Cheers, TMC
  4. Hi all, Changing work circumstances force a sale of my lovely Falcon RAM Studio 30 speakers. These terrific full range speakers have been used in a non-smoking and pet free household, and are absolutely mint/as new. I've been driving them (lightly) with a Luxman integrated. They come with dedicated Falcon plinths and the original packaging. I'm based in London but currently staying near Cheltenham, which is where the speakers are. The speakers are less than a year old and I’m the first owner. They are in the Burr Walnut finish, which is the best looking and most expensive finish option Asking £2500 excluding delivery (which is £2k off the RRP). Delivery would be by courier only, cost tbc - there are 3 boxes altogether, weighing close to 100kg all in. Exceptional reviews for these speakers: https://www.hifinews.com/content/falcon-acoustics-ram-studio-30-loudspeaker https://www.hifichoice.com/content/falcon-acoustics-ram-studio-30-0 From the manufacturer: The Falcon Acoustics Studio 30 is a 3 way floor-stander, offering outstanding sound quality and a specification rarely seen at this price level. 2 Custom OEM woofers especially made for Falcon provide effortless bass, merging with a dedicated 2” dome midrange especially incorporated because it makes the midrange quality and sound balance so much better than the usual 2 unit solution. High frequencies are provided by the custom Falcon R.A.M. modified tweeter. This is a speaker of the highest quality and balance. Falcon Acoustics R.A.M Studio 30 Drive Units: 3-way vented: 2 no. custom made 170mm (6”) Polypropylene Cone bass units (exclusive to Falcon Acoustics); Custom 50mm (2”) Dome Midrange; Custom 25mm ( 1”) soft dome tweeter Freq. response: 20Hz-35kHz Impedance: 8 ohms Sensitivity: 89dB/2.83V/m Power handling: 15-250W Connectors: 4mm Custom-Designed nickel-plated binding posts Dimensions (HxWxD): 1100 x 215 x 300mm (+12mm for grille and binding posts) incl. 60mm Plinth & Premium Falcon Audio Engineering Spikes. Finish: Wrapped natural Black Leather Exchangeable side panels in real wood veneer. Walnut, High Gloss White, High Gloss Black, Burr Walnut. Weight: 35kg each, 74 kgs per pair shipping weight. 15 Kgs Plinth x 2
  5. Quad 11L bookshelf speakers in gloss black. Immaculate condition. No original box but I have a suitable box and can post. Please ask for a quote. £180 plus postage.
  6. WITHDRAWN FROM SALE. KEF Chorale loudspeakers. £125 Have had new high voltage crossover capacitors fitted by me (big fat yellow things, not electrolytics !), new 4mm binding posts, new internal wiring. Cabinets have been lightly sanded and given 4 coats of linseed oil. A few very minor dings and surface marks commensurate with age, but nothing serious. No front grills, but I can supply the cloth that was on them plus the front grille badges. Sadly the wood that the cloth was on had broken in several places. Beautiful vintage speakers, they sound rather sublime, they have the classic B200 and T27 pairing. 47x28x22cm. My usual efforts have gone into these, so Im after £125 collect Northampton, or I could ship if I can find a box big enough
  7. Revel M105 speakers with matching stands in very good condition New these are around £1800 with stands, asking £650 Collection from North London N17 only I'm afraid, no boxes
  8. On the look out for a pair of Quad 11L speakers. Must be in very good condition, preferably with all original packaging. Any colour/finish considered. Will need to be delivered to Bury St Edmunds or local collection. Many Thanks in advance.
  9. B&W CDM1 mark 1 speakers In good shape overall - no issues and sound great. Grilles and tweeter covers are intact and not bumped at all One of them has been next to a door I think because it's got a couple of bumps on one side but they are cosmetic and not structural. Looking for £250 collected
  10. KRALK AUDIO TBD12 STEREO STUDIO MONITORS. Black ash veneer with dedicated stands and magnetic front covers. I have fitted heavy duty castors (lockable) to aid manouvering but these can be removed very easily. I purchased these direct from Alan at Kralk, these are his original pair, I took them last April. Enormous power handling and high sensitivity , 3 way design with attentuation of MF and HF drivers. Reluctantly for sale. My room just can't do them justice, they need a medium sized room as a minimum, mine is too small and whilst I could do something with room acoustics I think its kinder to set them free with a new owner. Have a look at Kralk Audios website for full specs and reviews etc. These need to be collected as they're big and heavy (very). Bring your own amp or I can demonstrated with a musical fidelity integrated (M3si). Im in Belper, Derbyshire M1 J28 / 25 £650
  11. Happy new year to you all. One of these beauties has a fault in that it makes high pitched noises ( like a radio out of tune ) I tested the other quickly on a crappy micro Hifi and it appears to work properly. The original quad stands are included, cosmetically they are in very good condition except for one small hole on the side of the cloth cover . long power cables are also included. I will post photos once I get a chance and if there is any interest. I’m hoping to get back what they owe me . £350 NOW at £200, COLLECTION BEFORE SUNDAY collection from Milton Keynes
  12. These excellent sounding little standmount / bookshelf speakers are finished in satin black ash real wood veneer. They're in excellent condition with only one tiny mark to one rear corner. Grilles excellent with all pegs present. Fully functioning and a very good sound. All panels (except the bottoms) are shown in the photos which form part of the description. 75 GBP - can be posted at cost in the UK or picked up near Chester. I will bring to the bring n buy at the Wam Show, Kegworth on 15 March 2020. They will be £65 of which £5 will go to the charity.
  13. FOR SALE Vienna Acoustics Bach Floorstanding Speakers Beech Finish Fully working order Very refined and detailed sound Excellent grilles with all mounting pegs present Good condition but with a few light marks - please check the photos as these form part of the description Part filled with kiln dried sand as per manufacturer's instructions Heavy so collection only from near Chester Could probably bring to the Wam Show on 15 March Also possible meet up anywhere between Chester and Birmingham / Newbury / Reading as long as you're patient to find a mutually convenient date £325
  14. Royd Abbot floor standers in real wood veneer ( with scrapes !! ) the grill fabric will need replacing too ( I have some in brown) Please be aware that these are not mint cosmetically but I think quite presentable at the price . One broken grill peg . They sound bloomin lovely. collection in person only though. £150
  15. I am selling my Living Voice OBX RW3 Speakers - Santos Rosewood. The speakers are in excellent condition, the external crossovers are black and have a couple of small marks on them, one careful owner from new with original packaging etc. The reviews speak for themselves. RRP £12,000 asking £4,995
  16. *Edit - these are sold now*. For sale are my beloved ATC SCM20PSL speakers in Walnut. They are in absolutely mint condition and sound incredible! I am only selling them because I am moving, and now have space for the big boys - SCM50s! These are two years old and come with all packaging / manuals etc. They come with Track Audio 600 stands with inbuilt circular spirit level, and perform miracles isolating them from whatever they are placed on. I do not have the boxes for the stands unfortunately. New, the speakers cost £3,770/pair, for both I am asking £2,750. Please follow this link showing a bit more detail of them in my system. Manufacturers detail is here for the ATCs and here for the stands. I am based in Brighton, and would prefer collection, with payment by bank transfer or cash on collection. If postage was absolutely necessary then buyer would have to arrange and cover the full cost of that. If you are interested, or would like any more details, please let me know. Cheers, Bob

    Thiel CS 2 2

    https://www.stereophile.com/content/thiel-cs2-2-loudspeaker-john-atkinson “From the very first note of the very first record played via the Thiels, I was bowled over by the ease of the speaker's sound” ”It was in the area of midrange and treble transparency that the Thiel perhaps scored its most longlasting impression” “Normally, the critic ends up with a shopping list of faults that he just has to assemble into some kind of logical order. In the case of the Thiel CS2 2, however, it seemed that the longer I listened for flaws, the less I heard—an enjoyable task for the music lover, but a frustrating one for the professional reviewer. At its price, the CS2 2 is a sonic bargain. Beautifully finished, with a sound that is smooth, tonally well-balanced, and extended at both extremes, it is musically one of the most satisfying loudspeakers I've heard” ...... .......... I dug out that review when I spotted a pair for sale, even though it's more likely than not they will just be passing through. Intriguing design, fabulous cabinets, with binding posts underneath giving a smooth rear to the cabinet. Installed in the lounge this morning alongside the ATC SCM40A's. I expected them to be slightly smaller than the SCM40A's but as you can see they're not. Obviously sub-optimal positioning so I won't be commenting on soundstage! I've only listened to a couple of Jesse Cook tracks but they're really rather nice. Crisp and clear in the highs and mids - to the point where I'd need to listen longer and more analytically to spot weaknesses vs the ATC's, which was a surprise. Very nice shape to the bass though this is the biggest difference from the SCM40A's: it's strong, possibly too strong, but (a) I've yet to isolate them from the oak-on-concrete floor and (b) I know some people and some types of music which these would suit fabulously. Will report back further. Windows make geting a proper photo a pain. The rear shot makes the wood look lighter than it is, side shot is accurate.
  18. Pair of spendor A6 award winning speakers. One careful owner in smoke, pet, child free home. Excellent condition, small ding on top of one speaker - see photo- can only see close up. I bought new from Sevenoaks around 8 years ago. Have original packaging, grilles etc. Fantastic sound, only selling as going active. Looking for £800 ono pls
  19. Good condition considering their age, only a couple of marks to one foam surround, wear on some edges of bases and missing one logo. Just cosmetic and only noticeable on close inspection. Cloth recently replaced with new. Functionally, they sound great, no rubbing on drivers and tweeters in good nick. Looking for £130. Happy to demo when collected, bring your favourite music! Cash on collection only from Dagenham, East London. Could post at a push, anticipate ~£20 for an insured courier (a decent one like ParcelForce, not MyHermes who'll wiggle out of any insurance claim...)
  20. Helping a friend to sell his Mission QX-2 speakers. They are in walnut finish. They are just a few weeks old and, as such, are in mint condition with all original packaging. Brilliant speakers for the money. £275 but open to sensible offers. Prepared to deliver but please ask for a quote. Alternatively, cash on collection or prepared to deliver close to Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
  21. We have recently moved to a small townhouse and the listening room (lounge) has been drastically reduced in size from 8x4x3 metres to roughly 4x3.5x2.3 metres with the speakers firing across the 3.5 approx 1.5 metres apart. My current Rogers LS6 on Atacama SL stands have been banned on the basis they are too big, fair enough they do dominate a bit... I was thinking of a small pair of floor-stands that would work well with my QUAD 34/405 setup, they would have to be able to cosy up to the rear wall as there is limited space so probably no rear firing ports. Budget wise would ideally keep it under a grand and more than happy to buy second-hand, any suggestions greatly received. Oh yes, nearly forgot... have to be Wife friendly, ideally nice quality veneer.
  22. Inherited these but want to sell them as they are not my style. Others may find them lovely. Unused but open box. We wired them up for a quick listen. Lovely, warm, retro sound. Beautiful condition. Like new. Comes with original box, packaging and documents. Will deliver for free. £300 or nearest offer. Thank you.
  23. Good evening all, Wonder if I could ask for some recommendations, please. I've recently bought the Audiolab 6000a and the accompanying 6000cdt. I've been running it through some KEF R100s - which are great little speakers - but I need a bit more scale, insight and separation in a 4.5 metre squared room. Has any body got any recommendations to add to an audition list. As I said, room is 4.5 x 4.5 metres and well-furnished. I listen mostly to classical, chamber, choral and acoustic music so booming bass is not required. A natural, airy and neutral tone is. I like to hear every instrument and voice in its own well-defined space but without harsh metallic highs. I've tried floorstanders but the room simply isn't big enough or suitable enough. Initial thoughts are: KEF LS50, Dali Opticon 2, B & W 606 Any other suggestions or views on the above are very welcome. Thanks in advance for your help.
  24. Immaculate pair of the superb Contour 30's in rosewood gloss. Purchased new from Audio T in Jan 2019 - RRP currently £5,750 These have been meticulously cared for and are in immaculate condition. For example, I carefully air dust the cabinets to prevent scratching of the beautiful gloss finish and keep the grills on when not in use to prevent dust accumulation on the dome tweeters. This pair are as exactly they shipped from the factory - there is not a single mark anywhere on these speakers! All packaging, materials, documentation + original wooden shipping crates included. Covered by transferrable 8 year Dynaudio warranty. Collection preferable as boxed weight is ~100kg £3500
  25. Zingali Zero Otto floorstanding loudspeakers, satin black finish For sale due to upgrade to active speakers. The Italian Zingali Zero Otto speakers are a high efficiency design (93 dB / W) using an Omniray horn tweeter and two 8” bass / mid. Very rarely seen for sale on the used market. In great condition, no obvious marks on the cabinet, some very discreet scuffs near the feet where they have been moved. New owner will not be disappointed. I have the original cartons. I am the second owner, having bought three years ago. These were new in 2013. They are ported on the bottom face which makes room placement easy. These are fine in a modest sized room; previous 2 x 8” speakers boomed badly in my room whereas these Zingalis do not. Their sound is gorgeous, dynamic, deep and fast bass with detailed and open mid / top; natural and musically satisfying. Sounded great with my 70W valve amp and would probably be happy with either smaller SETs or monster amps. Biwire terminals, original links included. Current model (Zero Evo) retailing at £4,995. Asking £2,350. £1,950. Zingali manufacture some seriously high-end speakers. But I believe they do not enjoy playing the usual hifi ‘game’ having lower dealer margins and no fawning to the press. Hence reviews are very hard to come by. Some links which I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpWZZhKp-q8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYBoEWyzLpo http://musicroomnewsdesk.blogspot.com/2013/07/a-visit-to-zingali-acoustics.html http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/manufacture/zingali.htm https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/83177-anyone-heard-zingali-sei-or-otto/ Some bumf: ZERO OTTO Zero point Zero marks the starting point of the Zingali loudspeaker range - and of everything for that matter. However, Zingali's Zero series is anything but the typical "entry-level" product, as it incorporates a full-blown Omniray implementation along with premium crossover/cabinet materials, supreme craftmanship and the same maker's devotion sensed as one comes near a flagship model. What sets it as the entry point is the fact that it's designed to fit a significantly more home-oriented audio/cinema application, where not everything has to evolve around the audio setup. Zero loss In essence, you get everything that Zingali is known for; playfulness, highest crest dynamics, shockingly natural tones, true-to-life dispersion of the projected soundscape, looks that's hard to beat... The exotic, the eccentric, all those attributes that grow in harmonic fusion as we are reaching for the upper (no) limit of the Zingali range may be what you are missing; or are you? TECH SPECS Enclosure type: Ported, bass reflex Compression driver: 1” - Coil 25 mm Woofer: 2 x 8” Coil 50 mm Horn: Omniray GZ 8” Power RMS: 300 W (AES) Nominal impedance: 6 Ω Frequency response: 32 Hz – 20 kHz Crossover frequency: 1200 Hz 12 dB/Oct Sensitivity: 93 dB (1W/1mt) Dispersion: 110° (-6 dB) Dimensions (H x W x D, mm): 1160 x 250 x 380 Cabinet: mdf 19 mm, mdf 30 mm Finishes: Cabinet/Panel: Satin Black – Lacquer White – Lacquer Black Piano Horn: (Cherry–Walnut–Wengè–Natural) Lacquer – Satin Black – Lacquer White – Piano Black Net weight: 28 Kg each Collection and demo welcome near Tewkesbury. I could post after cleared funds but these are very heavy and large, and with full insurance could be expensive. I am in need of a pre-amp for my new active speakers. I’m really after a balanced valve pre (e.g. Modwright) but may consider something else to tide me over until the right one comes along. So, I may be willing to consider something in part exchange. Also selling Octave V70SE valve amp, see separate advert. Sorry the photos aren’t great, I missed the last of the daylight. I may try to take some better ones soon.
