    Morning all,

    So the selling of my AV kit continues.....

    As per my previous for sale thread, I have recently moved house and due to the lack of space in my new lounge (approx 1/2 the size of previous), and the cost of required repairs to the new property, I am selling off my AV kit. So we have as follows:

    DSpeaker Anti-Mode 8033S-II:
    This was purchased new from BK electronic in March this year, then I subsequently moved house the first weekend of July. It has hardly been used and is in very good condition. They are selling for £304.95 new, I'm asking £245 ovno delivered.

    Anti-Mode 8033-SII

    Sold to Legzr1


    BK Monolith Plus DF Gloss Black:
    This was purchased from @mkohman in July last year. He purchased it new from BK electronics 2 years prior so I am the 2nd owner. You will see the pictures depict it as a Monolith but it has been upgraded by BK themselves as per the Monolith Plus spec. An exert from the BK website explains this properly:

    "The Monolith Plus is the new upgraded version of our standard Monolith. The upgrade comprises of a 500W amplifier and a Lab 12 loudspeaker to give at least an extra +3dB SPL over the standard Monolith for those who require more from their subwoofer. The amplifier is a beefed up version of our 300W Monolith ampliier and boasts a 700VA transformer and 6 MOSFETS to deliver oustanding power and performance. The LAB12 drive unit fits perfectly both electricaly and physicaly into the Monolith system and offers the same tuneful deep bass of the standard Monlith whilst delivering the outstanding SPL levels."

    Again, the subwoofer has not seen a lot of use, and it far too commanding for my new lounge so it also has to go. They are selling for £664.95 new delivered, I'm asking £345 ovno collection only.
    Please note, it will not come with any accessories, as I have no idea where the originals are since the house move (we still have quite a lot in storage). The condition is good but used, some marks in the photo are just dust/dirt from where it has has been stored for the last few months.

    Monolith Plus DF

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    I’m unsure of the sub price as the ad states 375 and then in the footer there is a 245 price including delivery? Can you please confirm?

    Sorry, it's my typing error: £245ovno is the asking price for the Anti-Mode.

    £375ovno is the asking price for the Subwoofer

    No delivery on the subwoofer I'm afraid, when I purchased it I had to make a 3 hour round trip to collect. It is far too heavy and would likely need to be sent on a pallet which is not something I can arrange or guarantee that it would get mishandle or damaged in transit.

    As my previous, post I'm offering £215 inc. for your S-II antimode.

    After Cabbies post I had to double check I'd posted in the correct thread :D

    I was initially asking for £375ovno, now reduced to £345ovno - looking to get as close to that as possible. There is an offer on the table of £300 at the moment, but I feel it is worth a bit more than that considering the subwoofers' highly regarded performance.

    Hi, thanks for your offer. I feel it is a bit lower than I am willing to accept, but I shall keep the offer on the table if there is not any other confirmed interest if that's OK?

    If it helps, I previously used this in a 2 bed apartment. It has a lot more control than its size would lead you to believe.

    You are more than welcome to come and see the sub in the flesh if you would like?

    Pictures are in the first post for reference, just beneath the description of the sub. BK have been making subwoofers for years for the likes of REL for a considerable amount of time, and in more recent years have produced them under their own brand name - winning multiple awards.

    They are highly regarded at their price point, and I would suggest that you would have to look into the £1k+ price bracket to achieve better performance. The Monolith Plus is still the flagship subwoofer in the BK product range...

    The owner before me used them in a system with a full XTZ cinema system powered by an Anthem Processor/Power Amp setup, and the subwoofer sounded amazing with that kit.

    My own previous subwoofer was a Acoustic Energy Aego and the difference between them was night and day. If I could keep my AV kit then I would, but I have struck up a deal with the Wife for a 2-channel set up instead :thumbsup:
