No longer FS: Snell E/ii Speakers

Edit: It turns out my new place will be larger than expected so there’s a fighting chance my Snells will work there, so I’m withdrawing for sale for the moment. They might be back up in a couple of months, but I hope not !

 

I'm about to move to a smaller house and will need smaller speakers than these - so sadly they have to go. I'll add some pictures tomorrow.

They are in good condition - only a very few small marks which aren't really noticeable, and one ding to a corner which was actually done when new (the original owner bought them at a discount from Snell due to it). 

The woofer foams are in good condition. The tweeters were replaced 3 years ago with a set imported from Atomic Hifi  in the USA, along with properly hand matched crossovers to retain the matching from the original tweeters. 

They sound truly fantastic, I'm really sad to let them go, but needs must.

I'm based in Northamptonshire - about 5 mins drive from Junction 18 of the M1 (i.e. close to the M1/M6 junction). 

I'm looking for £500 for these - you are of course welcome to come and see / listen.

Let me know if you're interested !

Mark

Another day, another temptation :?

The E II normally have a rear facing tweeter, but this was not wholly successful so many that came into the UK were specified without by the distributor, hence the version seen here.

Believe these used to be Phil’s @nut at some point. I already have Phil’s old type A’s, seems a bit like stalking someone’s hifi past  to go for these too. 

Decisions, decisions...

Yes - youre right - these were sold from Nut to Simbo, then to me. If I wasn't moving they would be a keep-for-life set of speakers, as since sorting the tweeters out (the originals when I bought them were degraded) they sound as close to perfect as I can imagine.

Yep, tney were mine.

Luvly speakers.

The ding on tne edge near the corner was very small, and i was quoted £50 to fix by a local furniture restorer. I never bothered as very small.

With new original matched tweeters,  i bet these sound great.

Hi Tony,

Yes, they have - before I had them and they’re very neatly done so are good for many a year to come.

Thanks for your interest and help everyone.
