    Hi All,

    I have been away from it all for a few years but I am looking to start a 5.1.4 project and am in need of some speakers. I currently have a set of B&W CM10's for the front so will be looking to add:

    1 x Subwoofer
    1 x Center
    2 x Rear/Surround
    4 x Atmos/Ceiling

    Not sure on the Av receiver yet but most likely Arcam AVR8500/Anthem 1120 or similar Denon/Marantz etc. Would also look at a receiver f you have something interesting.

    I would look at a complete setup including fronts if someone is looking to move a complete setup on and has something quality or interesting.

    I am genuinely open to suggestion.

    Would need delivering to Chippenham or collection from somewhere near (will need to be near as I don't have the time to travel at the moment).

    Cheers!

    Location: Chippenham

    Hi,

    I'm offloading most of my kit as I'm moving overseas. All owned from new, under a year old and all boxed with warranty. Just haven't got around to listing it all yet:

    Denon 7200WA Receiver (silver) - Denon AVR-X7200WA 9.2 AV Receiver Review
    Kef R700 fronts (white)
    Kef R600C center (white)
    Paradigm Sub2 (black) - 6 years old, boxed but might put this in storage as so hard to find second hand. Signature Sub2 - Seriously Cinema

    I'm near Milton Keynes

    Thanks for the offer! May be interested in the amp, what kind of price are you looking for? The sub looks superb but may be a little out of my price range!

    I would only look at a new front speakers if they were part of a complete setup so will pass on those.

    I guess £900ish looking at the going rate on a well known auction site.

    Average. Got a minor ding to one corner and a slight dimple to one driver - doesn't effect sound though - happy to demo.

    OK thanks again. ideally I was hoping for something a little further up the range and newer but let me go and do some research and get back to you. On the surface it would certainly seem to do the job. A couple of questions if I may:

    How did you find it overall?
    Is there any warranty left?
    What is the condition?

    Cheers!

    It's excellent. I bought my first 7200WA back in 2015. Replaced it with an Arcam AVR850 in 2017 and then sold that and bought another Denon 7200! Nothing between them sound quality wise and the Arcam software and bugs like HDMI switching were too much for me compared to the slick Denon. Obviously, if you want room correction then the DIRAC of the Arcam is way better than the Audyssey on the Denon. But it's a very expensive upgrade for DIRAC.

    I think there is warranty remaining I will check. I will supply the original invoice. It will be 2 years old in November.

    It's mint.

    Sorry to hijack this thread, but out of interest, what would you be looking to sell the R700s for? I'm thinking about getting some new speakers :)

    Morning. If you can check the warranty situation and confirm that you can have it delivered I am definitely interested.

    Thanks!
