  10. Item: Bowers & Wilkins CM8. Location: Sydney Price: [No Longer Available] Item Condition: 9.5 Perfect working conditions. Reason for selling: Thinking of upgrade. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only I am sorry I have decided to keep the CM8's.

  11. I'm looking to buy a pair of B&W DM602 bookshelf speakers to use in my bedroom 2ch vinyl setup. I'd probably just consider the S3 version in black but would shy away from S2 and S1 versions. So if any of you fellas has got a pair in good condition please let me know and we can work out a deal. Cheers, Willmax
  12. Cherrywood 803D floor standing speakers. They are very close in performance to the 802D2 that I have also listed but half the price. Great clarity and soundstage, the Diamond tweeter is bright without being harsh, and the bass generated from the triple drivers is epic. I am downsizing the number of speakers/systems in the house, so these have to go to a new home. They are in great condition which I hope comes through on the photos. They come with the accessory pack containing the spikes and the rubber feet for hard floors and the bridging cables. They look better without the main grills in my opinion, but the grills are included. There is a mark on the side of one of the cabinets - hard to see unless you are inspecting them closely - but I would like to know that if I was considering buying them and it’s highlighted in the pictures below. I do not have the boxes and I borrowed packaging from the dealer when I bought them so a local sale would be preferred. Interstate can be arranged, with shipping, packing, and insurance arranged by you. Interstate shipping from Perth is actually pretty reasonable - about a third of the cost of bringing gear this way. Specs: Type: 3 way, 5 driver loudspeaker system Frequency Response: 28Hz to 33kHz Recommended Amplifier: 50 to 500W Crossover Frequency: 350, 4000Hz Impedance: 8Ω Sensitivity: 90dB Bass: 3 x 180mm rohacell cone Midrange: 1 x 150mm kevlar cone Tweeter: 1 x 25mm diamond dome Enclosure: bass reflex Finish: black ash, rosenut, cherrywood Dimensions: 1164 x 306 x 457mm Weight: 45kg Any questions, just ask.

  21. Further Information: Selling my Bowers and Wilkins 705 speakers finished in gorgeous ROSENUT, this version of 705 speakers was released prior version to S1 model - MADE IN ENGLAND quality. I've been using them for a year or so, prior to that these speakers were stored in the original box in the ventilated garage. Great sounding speakers if paired with the right gear, I found these incomparable to current B&W 705 lineup, which are brighter and more analytical sounding and can be quite fatiguing to listen. These 705 speakers have more soul and body than modern ones. I'm only selling as I've bought another pair of speakers and due to limited space can't keep both. Speakers are in ideal as new condition, only one small mark on a rubber trim, virtually invisible and not affecting the performance. Speakers come with the original box, manual and bass port plugs in case you need to place speakers closer to the wall or using sub. Full spec of the speakers are on the picture below. I'd prefer local pick up from North Ryde or Central Coast, but can post at buyer's expense.
  22. If you know the brand, then you know the reputation! Beautiful pair of vintage B&W DM1400 Reference speakers in stunning walnut cabinets, standing nice and high on matching stands. These are a 3-way closed box design, nice and heavy at over 20kg each and rated at 8ohms with 86dB sensitivity. Very unique drivers, with inter-unit electronic time delay correction, which implements an auto shutdown protection prior to the occurrence of distortion. These same drivers were used by Bowers in the famous Signature Powered Model 1 design, and produce an incredibly natural and musical soundscape. B&W have always been revered for their exceptional quality and attention to detail, and a quick search will reveal an array of positive reviews about the DM1400. This pair is in exceptional condition, and look just as good as they sound. Grilles are perfect, with no rips or fraying. A perfect addition to any setup, or for someone looking to put together a vintage system with quality units. This is an incredibly regretful sale, and i will gladly hold on to them if they do not sell. However, i’m tying to downsize my collection and therefore these are the first on the line. Sorry, no interstate buyers (unless you are willing to come to SA to collect) as they are just too big and heavy.
  23. Further information: For sale are a pair of mint as new highly regarded Bowers & Wilkins 705 Signature standmount bookshelf speakers in the stunning Datuk Gloss finish valued at $4999 and with a bonus pair of the matching Bowers & Wilkins FS700 S2 valued at $899 by themselves. That’s a total RRP of $5898. The sound is clear and refined due to the combination of the isolated tweeter, continuum driver and optimised crossover. This is an end game speaker for some. Speakers were bought brand new in December 2021. Speakers come with the original packaging and documents. Selling because I am moving and have no more space. Pickup from Glebe NSW 2037 preferred. Signature Version of B&W 705 S2's Significant Crossover Upgrades Bring A More Refined Sound Bright Metal Accents & Signature Badging All The Best In B&W Audio Engineering In A Stunning, Unique Finish The B&W 705 Signature bookshelf speaker is the new top-of-the-range model that adds a beautiful high gloss Datuk ebony finish as well as substantial crossover upgrades to take this already wonderful sounding speaker to new heights. We look forward to demonstrating these superb new speakers from Bowers & Wilkins. About The B&W 705 Signature Speakers The new 705 Signature and 702 Signature models share a common philosophy with their predecessors: like previous Signatures, the new models are carefully upgraded and lavishly finished loudspeakers that represent the apex of current Bowers & Wilkins design, engineering and manufacturing processes. A huge amount of care and attention has been paid to improving their acoustic performance via an upgraded crossover design, and also to carefully crafting the luxurious new cabinet finish. Launched in 2017, the elegant Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series range of speakers already delivers exceptional performance thanks to its careful use of technologies first seen in the high-end 800 Series Diamond, such as the Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top assembly, unique Continuum cone drivers and Aerofoil profile bass drivers. Used in combination with bespoke 700 Series technologies such as the Carbon Dome tweeter plus carefully optimised and rigid cabinets, the result is a range of loudspeakers as superb to listen to as it is to look at. As Signature products, the new 705 & 702 Signature have received further, detailed improvements enabled by upgraded crossover designs and components. Both models now feature specially treated and upgraded bypass capacitors sourced from Mundorf, larger heatsinking and, in the case of the 702, an upgraded LF capacitor on the bass section of the crossover. In tandem with the immense benefits both models enjoy as a result of their Tweeter-on-Top configuration, these upgrades improve the already-remarkable resolution, openness and spatial retrieval on offer, lending them an even-more polished, refined and involving sound. Upgraded Finish In keeping with established Signature practices, the 705 and 702 Signature boast a stunning new Datuk Gloss ebony-coloured veneer with a distinctive, beautiful grain. This custom-designed finish combines the beauty of exotic real-wood veneers with the environmental benefits of a sustainably-sourced supply, in this case from specialist Italian wood company Alpi. Each pair of speakers is unique, with no two models sharing the same grain pattern or figuring. Bowers & Wilkins adds to Alpi’s painstaking workmanship by applying nine coats of finish – including primer, base coat and lacquer – to create a deep, lustrous appearance. To further accentuate and highlight the quality of finish on each model, both Signature speakers have bright metal trim rings around the mid/bass and midrange cones plus bright, silver- finished, protective tweeter grilles. Finally, both models have a Signature identity plate to their rear panel, helping turn each speaker into a genuine and unique and individual piece. Director of Sales at Bowers & Wilkins Australia, John Martin, said “Like our previous Signature releases, these two special Signature versions of our highly regarded 702 S2 and 705 S2 are destined to become classics. Whether you buy them for their next-level performance or their exotic finish, or both, you’ll be buying something that is unique, exclusive and timeless, to be enjoyed for many years to come”. Technology The 700 Series is an entirely new range of speakers. Compared with the outgoing CM Series, every transducer has changed and radically improved. To do this, B&W have borrowed some of the most advanced technologies from their flagship 800 Series Diamond, adapting them to suit a more attainable price point. And they’ve introduced entirely new technologies, designed specifically for this range. Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top Decoupled Carbon Dome: The Bowers & Wilkins 705 bookshelf loudspeaker houses a 25mm (1") Carbon Dome tweeter that utilises a Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top design for uncompromising high performance sound that will reveal subtle nuances that you've never heard in your music before. Decoupled Carbon Dome Tweeter: The 25mm (1") Decoupled Carbon Dome tweeter is purpose-built for the 700 Series and delivers a dramatic improvement on B&W's aluminum double dome tweeter (found in the 600 Series) by raising the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail. The tweeter is decoupled from the mounting assembly and hardware using synthetic gel to prevent any unwanted vibrations from reaching the tweeter. The result is breathtaking clarity and definition. Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top Design: The Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top design is borrowed from B&W 800 Series Diamond and helps the speaker convey uncanny realism, presence and transparency. Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized enclosure for the tweeter that is exceptionally inert and resistant to resonance. The result is a more natural, spacious, and open sound. Continuum Cone Midbass/Midrange Driver: The 705 speaker features a single 165mm (6.5") Continuum cone midbass/midrange driver, borrowed from B&W's 800 Series Diamond. Thanks to its woven-coated material and composite construction, the Continuum cone provides a natural and open sound by avoiding the abrupt transitions in behavior that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit and cause distortion. As a result, voice and instruments are delivered with purity and precision. Flowport Technology: The B&W 705 utilises Flowport Technology to create smooth, deep, and efficient bass response. Its bass reflex enclosure features a rear-firing, dimpled flared port that provides natural bass response without turbulent noise or distortion. If you want to reduce the volume of bass without moving the speaker further from the wall, fit the included foam plug into the rear-firing port for lesser bass response. Acoustically Transparent Magnetic Grille: The Bowers & Wilkins 705 speaker comes with an acoustically transparent magnetic grille cover that's easy to install, looks great, and doesn't get in the way of the sound. Dual Binding Post Terminals: The speaker has two sets of heavy-duty binding posts connected by jumper straps. The binding post terminals will accept bare wire, spade connectors, or single banana plugs. There are plastic inserts that will need to be removed from the binding post terminals in order to use banana plugs. Using the dual binding posts terminals, you can choose to bi-amp or bi-wire the speaker when facing the back of the cabinet, just remember to remove the metal jumper straps first! The top set of binding posts are for the high frequency drivers; the bottom set of binding posts are for the low frequency drivers. Bi-Wiring: Bi-wiring can provide noticeable improvements in the overall transparency of your loudspeakers. Run separate speaker wires to the low & high frequency drivers from a single amplifier. Bi-Amping: Bi-amping allows you to use separate amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your loudspeaker for greater dynamic range & lower distortion. We recommend that your amplifiers have identical gain/output to preserve the speaker's voicing balance. Mounting Options: The Bowers & Wilkins 705 speakers can be placed on a set of speaker stands (sold separately - see Accessories Tab for recommendations), a table-top, shelf, or other piece of furniture although we strongly discourage that you use these last two options because the performance will be well below their capabilities. The included self-adhesive rubber feet will reduce but not eliminate unwanted vibration but will protect your furniture from scratches. The rubber feet add approximately 10mm to the overall height of each speaker. The B&W 705 S2 bookshelf speaker should be mounted as close to ear level of the main seated listening position as possible. Moving the speaker further from the walls will generally reduce the volume of bass. Space behind the speakers will also help to create an aural impression of depth. Conversely, moving the speakers closer to the walls will increase the bass. Bring Hollywood Home: Providing the ideal balance of high-performance acoustics and living room-friendly dimensions, 700 Series speakers are a superlative choice for home cinema sound. Pair them with one of the two centre-channel speakers in the range and the powerful DB4S subwoofer, and you’re set for a truly transformational movie experience.

  25. Further Information: This is a reluctant sale. These are amazing speakers but never got a lot of use with me. I have other speakers and the Mrs’s patience is wearing thin. These are simply amazing and I tested again recently with my 2nd HT setup in the living room (See pic below) . I placed them on top of my Dali Oberon 5’s and they sounded just as amazing and clear. They were made in England. They have a big sound-stage, can easily fill up a medium room and I feel that they have a warm sound with excellent bass. I felt they do not easily fatigue and sounded great at high volumes as well to my ears at least. I do not have the best amps (Have Yamaha RX-V6A and RX-V583 and a cheap Chinese desktop amp) and so I can only imagine how they will sound when paired with an awesome integrated stereo amp. These are the specs I found online. Enclosure Type:2 way infinate baffle Recommended Amplifier:10 - 75 Watts Frequency Response:80Hz - 20kHz Sensitivity:88dB Nominal Impedance:8 Ohms Drivers:1 x 26mm high-frequency driver with dome/coil construction of special polymide material 1 x 150mm nominal piston dia and 26mm high temperature voice coil with critically impregnated composite short fibre cone Dimensions:220 x 370 x 210mm (Width x Height x Depth) Original product specs from B&W: https://www.bowerswilkinschina.com/files/2020-04-archives/ENG_FT00068_DM100i_info_sheet.pdf I might keep them for a second turntable setup in my little room (Which will have a great stereo amp TBD) but I suspect they will be too loud for the room. I have maintained them nicely with very little dust and will carefully clean again prior to sale. Local pickup preferred. However, I can work with you to figure out freight options as well if required. Please see pics fore more details. Donation to SNA included in price. Cheers.
