    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg House renovation means my trusty MS system is going to have to go - SWMBO not tolerating speakers and wire anymore :(

    So here it is:
    4 x MS 302
    1 x MS 304 centre
    1 x MS Carnival Sub

    All apart from sub with silver grilles, Sub has a black grille. Sub is just over 2 years old with very little noise as 2 kids in short order has meant 'noise' had to be kept down.

    All in very good condition. A couple of the grilles have some very light marks but nothing too obvious. Also have spare set of grilles and 3x Mordaunt Short original wall mounts - will throw these in too.

    Many thanks !

    Hey buddy, these still available. What's delivery charge to ML1 4BB going to be like?? How long you had them for. Also any distortion from the speakers?

    I've had them for around 6 years. They are fairly heavy particularly the sub so not sure on delivery costs. I'd hazard a guess at between £25 and £50? No distortion from the speakers.

    I should clarify. Have had the ms302s and 305 for around 6 years. Sub is just over 2 years old and hardly used.

    If you can find out a price for postage it'll help me making my mind up. It's a impulse buy to be honest!

    Here you go. The other speakers are boxed up but have the same silver frontage apart from the sub which is black.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the pics. :thumbsup:
    I take it that the rest of the speakers have no noticeable damage, such as pushed-in tweeters, etc?

    I'm going to have a little think about these and get back to you (if they're still available) after the weekend. :smashin:

    No damage whatsoever save for some marks on the centre grill - see pics which I think would rub out. Let me know what you decide.

    Also have a Denon 2113 receiver with balance of 5 yrs warranty if interested.

    Hi again mate
    I've spoken to SWMBO and she's "advised" me not to get these, as she thinks the sub is too big.
    Sorry. [emoji18]

    No problem. I should mention though that this is one of the smaller subs available - and thats why I go it as I had a similar "discussion" with the wifey.

    12 inch cube and it fit very sweetly behind my sofa so wouldn't even have known it was there. Will throw in a 10m Sub Cable too and some high end speaker wire too if I can tempt you?

    Yep, those "discussions" can certainly be very vibrant and entertaining, to say the least. ;)

    Right now, I'm in the same situation as you - redecorating *groan* and so, the OH wants my DX-1's and more specifically, their sub gone.

    I'm also looking at a set of Tannoy Custom Fs, which have floor standing fronts, which she's happier about, but the down-side there is they don't have a sub, but the seller says you don't need it.
    Thing is, if I go down this route, am I going to have to add in a sub, even if I don't really have the space (5x4m room)?

    Give me a couple more days to "discuss" the pros and cons of sub vs no sub (and not just aesthetics, which is all she cares about :p ) but at the end of the day, whatever "we" decide, it's going to be a coin toss. And I, for one, don't like my chances, whichever way up the coin lands. :(

    You're lucky. I had a pair of MS 914 floorstanders as part of what was originally a 7.0 system but they were the first to go on her orders. I didn't need a sub with those as the floorstanders gave out enough low range for our small flat. Bought the sub to make up for no floorstanders and that was all hunky dorey until she decided to renovate and move rooms around.
    Good luck!

    Hi would you consider selling the 2 of the MS 302 and the wall mounts separately? If so then give me a price please.

    Thanks

    Would prefer to sell as a set as value will diminish if a 3.1 system. Would consider £50 collected though :clap:

    Hi again mate,

    Sorry I haven't replied in a while, but I have been very busy recently and had to "juggle" a few bills, so these beauties kinda slipped down the priority list, so to speak.

    Are these still available?

    Thanks. :smashin:

    I may be interested as getting new TV and need another system for a bargain. How much with the receiver as well?
