Hi All, just testing the water...

I’ve built up my ‘dream system‘ (just short of ATMOS ceiling speakers which sparked this argument off) but Wifey has become frustrated with our Livingroom full of dark speakers; loosely agreed a compromise (if it’s not going to set us back financially) that I could get a white pair of bookshelves and I’ve got my eye on a pair of White 805D3 on eBay currently...

I’ve got...

(Speakers in the most desirable finish of Ebony)

Sold - Monitor Audio PL200, 5 years old first owner
Sold - Monitor Audio PLC150, second owner (not sure of age but wood is a cosmetic match) WITH Gold Stand, bought new
Sold - Monitor Audio Gold FX, 3 years old first owner

SVS SB13, second owner (new Amp with 3.9 years remaining warranty on Amp) mint condition

All boxed and collection or personal delivery within reasonable distance of London could be arranged. Looking to sell all in one preferably as I can’t be out of pocket long if I buy the B&W 805D3.

Looking for £4000...as the 805D3s have no Stands and on at £3750!

Thanks

I’d prefer not to. Couriers don’t care for items such as these ...had a bad experience with my first set of PL200 that got thrown off the lorry and smashed up badly...was traumatic experience getting a replacement pair and I had to pay for a courier back; I’m certain you wouldn’t want to be in this situation as couriers will blame shift in general :-(

Intrested in the SVS sub, what's up with the finish, looks matt on the top with gloss on the sides? Is this the SB 13 Ultra or another variant?

It was an interim model they made, which I personally think looks better than the gloss all over. Identical Driver and Amp to the more common SB13U...but has grittex top, chamfered edges and magnets holding the grill instead of the uglier bungs they changed for the iteration. The latter revision was probably cheaper to manufacture...honest

It is this SVS SB13-Plus Subwoofer Class D Amp

...all Loudspeakers are mint except the Center has slight driver indents from my young daughter who tried her fingernails against them few years back (never touched them again after the fury incurred). Marks are not that noticeable, unless light shone direct and with the cover on not at all - replacement drivers from MA were £250’ish but I couldn’t justify replacing as its minor and sound not affected at all.

Mint condition and collected them myself from Dealer. These are the best Gold FX version they have made in my opinion, as have Monopole mode which is preferable for Surround music every time I’ve tried it.

For someone looking to get a high end Cinema together, this a very good match - the SVS Sub looks like it was made for the Platinums, same grill design and grittex top looks akin to the Platinum bases
Hi,

Do you accept £3000 for all Monitor Audio speakers? I want to send pm, but your mail is full. I live in Bromley. Please let me know.
Regards
Joseph

I can offer £700 for FX if you decide to split? You should be able to get more in total for everything when splitting.

Hi Damo_S

Whereabouts are you? I’m not very keen on posting

Thanks for the interest
I am in Belfast, my offer is for courier collection. It would be UPS, I never had an issue with them over the years and some expensive items delivered. I fully understand your concerns, so I would organise courier and bear the responsibility for any damage in transit.
And it is my birthday today so I need a treat 😉
