    Hi all,

    I am selling my trusty B & W speakers. They have served me well but have just moved to a house where I can't really use them due to the room layout. They can be run in either dipole or monopole listening modes.

    They are in great condition and have never been listened to without the grills off. They are a bit scratched on the rear due to my struggles to always get them on the hook (!) but since they should be wall mounted anyway you'd never notice.

    From new these are £550 so I'm looking for £230.

    Below is the tech info from B & W's website:
