FS: Whatmough Ondine speakers


Recommended Posts

Item: Whatmough Audio Ondine
Location: St Kilda
Price: $3000 ONO
Item Condition: Good
Reason for selling: Need to fix my car :(
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Only
Extra Info:

 

VERY reluctant sale. These are a very high-end speaker with very high-end sound. This pair has a bit of history behind them as they were apparently the prototype. There are quite a few bumps and marks and the speaker terminals have some 'wiggles' - a few cosmetic fixes and these will rival some of the best speakers around. Super heavy, a two person lift lift for sure. INSPECTION strongly encouraged as for this price you will not come remotely in the league of these bad boys.

 

BTW I will need replacement speakers...will spend about $500 on bookshelves...so if you are considering an upgrade I will consider part trade...

Being a prototype I’m assuming that drivers are near impossible to find? Are there any specs for these?....weight dimensions, driver size etc? They look great! 

Cheers. 

I believe they are Dynaudio drivers and can be replaced - although these seem in very good condition to me. They are really, really heavy...as I mentioned before...there are some rough edges so inspection/audition is essential...but the sound...oh how they sound...top shelf...

That's a shock. Collin Whatmought told me my pair were the prototypes ! I found they thrived on powerful solid state amps. The Dynaudio woofers should never be exposed to ultraviolet light as I stupidly did making the surrounds perish. However the woofer surrounds pictured here appear to be intact. Also check the integrity of positioning of the reflex tubes which on early models sometimes partially detatched from the speaker body.

I keep the grills on...they just look sexier with the grills off :) I’m using an 80’s SS Luxman at 100w seems to do the job....

There can be more than one set of prototypes, before a design is finalised.

Geez they look nice.

May I see a photo of the rear.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Brisbane State: QLD Payment Method: Money Reason for selling: Thinning the collection. Further information:
       
      On offer is  Aiwa AD-F990 cassette decks. Comes one T200 remote. These were optional extras but come as part of the sale. 
       
      The decks themselves function very well and are a technical tour-de-force featuring the following functions:
       
      Amorphous Tape Heads and dual capstans Automatic Tape Calibration Automatic Tape Type Selection Automatic Record Level Setting Built in demagnetizer Real time and Linear tape timer Dolby B and C Dolby HX Pro Automatic NR Detection (Deck automatically detects and switches to the type of NR used on the tape ) Large format Fluorescent Display Full Logic Transport Controls and more.  
      Here’s a good place that gives a run down on these wonderful sounding machines : 
       https://www.cassettedeck.org/aiwa/ad-f990

      Was part of a collection and very gently used. Deck have been previously serviced and all belts have been replaced. All functions work when tested. The silver top has some dings on the cover. This is purely cosmetic. The deck has a full bodied sound and presentation that delivers energy when the music calls for it. Top of the line  sounding machine with a wonderful sound and plenty of convenience features.
       
      The Black version has been sold. Only the Silver one is available.
