    Hi,

    For trade here is my loved really loved dali helicons 800 mk1 ....
    Looking to trade down to some helicons 400 not really looking for anything else.. :smashin:
    Only reason looking to trade is moving to a new house and i'm getting the cellar to myself so the 800 are gonna be to a tad to big... :thumbsup:
    Love the sound of the 800 was hoping to get the same in a small room from the 400....!

    Wouldn't even consider if I didn't have to move..

    Would prefer a swap with money my way but will be open to negotiations a little only a little.....lol:thumbsup:

    I purchased these off this forum for £1,900 but value them more and would not sell them at this price... Just stating for forum rules.

    Please can you place a value on your 800's even if for trade purposes only.

    Thank you.

    Why don't you just plug the bass port with foam bungs, and keep your speakers.

    I have a nice pair of mk 1 Helicon 400s in cherry. A couple of minor marks but generally excellent condition. No boxes. I would be interested in a swap but what conditions do you have in mind? I am based in Kent but travel to Warwickshire a lot.

    Hi Brett
    I will take some pictures tomorrow so that you can see properly. The marks are not obvious unless you look closely. If I recall correctly, the 800s were about £5k new and the 400s £3.3k. Regarding value: the Mk1s have been around a while (over 5 years) so I would guess they are down to about a third of their value.
    Cheers, Colin

    Sorry for the delay - we just bought a house yesterday. Stress......

    The photos are attached. The speakers are very nearly mint; there is one small vertical scuff plus a couple of scuffs on the black plinths (which could be covered up very easily). The photos are not the best quality - mainly because I left the flash off in most cases to avoid artefacts - but the gloss finish is stunning.

    Yes, that is the vertical mark ( a few cm). Sure, have a think.

    Hi Guys/Gals It pains me to do this but these speakers are looking like they will have to go just bought a new house and they are not going to fit in my HC/listening room....I will consider selling or swapping for the helicon 400 mk2 or a speaker with the same sound feeling.....! Let me know what you got guys...

    Not tempted to just sell them? It will take a long time to find any 400 Mk IIs on here - they aren't exactly common…
    I would be interested if you do decide to sell.
