Hello, I've just reluctantly listed my ESS-amt 1d's which I love but sadly just aren't practical for my space(/cats!) anymore.

 

I'm particularly going to miss the open transparent sound of the Heil AMT tweeters which I really love.

 

Very keen to get some recommendations on speakers with similar relaxed, open sound profile. I play a lot fo jazz, folk, soundtracks, orchestral etc.

 

Could be bookshelf or floorstanders, budget around $750-$1k. I;v always been a vintage/second-hand buyer before but happy to explore something brand new too.

 

Thanks,

M

There’s quite a few options with or without the Heil Ribbon tweeter design like Spendor, Proac, Whatmough, Sonus Faber, Adam active monitors, Dynaudio and Elac in particular. Just keep an eye out in the used listings everywhere and research them or return for comments on model experiences here.

      Item Condition: 9/10 Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Woodend State: VIC Payment Method: EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: No Longer Required Previously withdrawn due to logistical difficulties created by Covid lockdown in Victoria. Re-listed, with a price drop, following the announcement of Victoria lockdown #5 lifting. There is additional info in the listing from the original ad that includes some clarification based on PMs I received last time.
       
      B&W CM10 S2 in Rosenut finish - I have owned these beautiful beasts from new. These very rarely come-up on the second-hand market, and for very good reason. Lockdown #5 created the perfect storm of my not being able to collect their replacements and the sudden realisation that I may never hear them again once they're gone; since withdrawing the first ad, I have gone through a good portion of my vinyl and digital catalogue and really listened to them properly again. I'm going to miss them, but nothing would make me happier than passing them on to someone moving up the chain on their audio journey. They really are highly capable speakers and will work their magic across any genre thrown at them. They have a big sound with plenty of range, digging down to 45Hz - 8 Ohm impedance with a decent 90dB/W/m sensitivity, so are pretty easy to drive. This model was superseded by the 702 S2 which was a supposed improvement, however, most people find the 702 S2 to be a bit too bright in comparison to the CM10 S2.


       
      The only reason I'm letting these go is due to new incoming speakers and not wanting to test the tolerance of my lovely wife by keeping too much unused kit around the house. I've dropped the price a couple of hundred bucks, not because I am desperate for the cash, but because I don't want the clutter.
       
      You can see from the pics that they are mounted on the plinths that they came with, which are removable if necessary for fitting them in the back of your car.
       
      Also included:
      8 x spikes and nuts if you want to use them instead of the soft rubber feet screwed into the plinth,
      2 x 2-piece port bungs to fine-tune bass - especially useful if you need to site the back of the speaker closer than 70cm to a wall,
      Original manual,
      2 x transportation screws for steadying the mid-range driver whilst in transit,
      4 x jumpers if you are single-wiring (I'm currently bi-wiring, so they have been removed)

      I have everything except the original boxes and for that reason, my strong preference is on pick-up/meet-up only and have priced-in the inconvenience for the buyer. I really do not want to attempt to pack your new speakers (without the original boxes) that are in perfect (and I do mean perfect) working condition, only to have the passion-fingered freight company kill them and then have to disappoint their new guardian. I might consider Pack and Send at your cost and risk, but frankly it's a distant second in terms of preference. I'm 45 mins out of Melbourne on the Calder Fwy - and I'm even happy to meet-up on the North side of Melbourne if that helps you and you don't want to audition them first. They will fit in a hatchback with the seats down easily. Bring quilts/blankets/pillows/small children to use as protection/packing material.
       
      One of the speakers has a small ding in the veneer at the top, rear, right hand side - see pic with red circle in it. It really doesn't notice unless you get close. This was due to me being a klutz when putting my record cleaner away and I caught the speaker at a slightly awkward angle with the edge of the cleaner (don't panic, the speaker remained upright!).

      Pics included with and without covers (covers are pristine) as well as in wider angle shot to show how they look in my setup and to give you an idea of how they might work in yours.
      Please note, the centre speaker is not for sale, so please do not try to bundle it in on the deal.

       
      Please PM with any questions.

      Hi,
      I know it's probably been discussed here already but i couldnt find with my forum search skills.
      What would be the best speaker arrangement for a 7.1 system ?
      i have 1 central, 4 floorstanding and 2 bookshelf speakers.
      having the space for all of them,
      i Think the best sounding floor speakers would go to the front right and front left.
      for the side and rear speakers which one would be better to use floor and which one bookshelf ?

      Item Condition: Very good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Fitzroy North State: VIC Payment Method: EFT, Cash on pickup Reason for selling: Can't place in new house Further information: 
       
      Hi all — regretful sale of these ELAC FS 67s. Bought by my father-in-law >10 years ago, used in his house for choral/renaissance music, more recently used by us for all-purpose listening. I love their clarity and brightness. We recently moved house and they sadly don't fit the new space, so thought I would try to get them a good home.
       
      Matte black finish. Baffles & drivers in perfect condition. They've lived safely in a no-kids, no-pets, no-smoking environment their whole lives. Some minor scuffs on one unit, surface only, marked on photos, doesn't affect sound whatsoever. 
       
      They're 940h x 300d x 220w.
       
      Come and collect from Fitzroy North, I don't have them hooked up, but would be happy to audition if you BYO amp & source. I'd be happy to deliver within a 20-ish km radius. Would consider posting, but no idea how I'd package them.
       
      Donation to StereoNet assured when sold.
