    OK. I've been collecting and mucking about with several systems in several houses and have eventually settled on an all-active cinema and in-walls everywhere else.
    But I have an increasingly scary amount of leftover audio jumble that I have to start clearing - partly thanks to the shedload of stuff cleared out from forum member skr1 this weekend. The missus says either these or me must go. All items are offered individually. Help!

    Floorstanders:

    Paradigm Prestige 95F: £3990 (pix on page 4)
    Pair, gloss black, effectively brand new - boxed, etc. Run for about five hours. Very refined. Beautifully made. £8000 new. Stereophile Class B recommended.

    GoldenEar Triton Two+: £2990 (pix on page 4)

    Pair - again, as new: not yet run in - complete with original boxes. Integral subwoofers: proper full range speakers, but very compact. £4000 new. Stereophile Class B recommended.

    Swans Diva 6.2: £450
    I've owned these for about four years from new. They have curved wood-veneered cabinets and measure 1.2m in height, with three 8-inch mica drivers and a tweeter in separate enclosure. They move air. Minor age-related marks but tidy. Original boxes, but one grille missing - unless it's in the loft. £1300 new.

    Smaller speakers:

    Paradigm Millennia 30: £450
    I think this is the best centre of this format (wide and skinny) available. Mint piano gloss black, as new (not yet run in) with original box, packing and mount. £900 new.

    Kef T 301C (black): £180
    Boxed, superb, complete with mount. (£280 new)

    Monitor Audio Radius 250HD Centre: £190
    Boxed and superb. Piano Gloss Black.

    Wharfedale DX-1 2-speaker set (gloss white, satellites only): £50

    Swans M1 (pair): £595


    In-walls

    Q Acoustics 65c: £65 each
    2x available, in bespoke wood housings (or not). Complete with magnetic white grilles. No boxes. £120 new.

    Swans / HiVi VX5 LCR: £100 each
    3x available. Boxed and unused. £150 new. MTM configuration dual 6.5" bass drivers.


    SOLD:
    Kef T101 pair (black)
    2x Q Acoustics 65c
    2x Monitor Audio Radius 225HD
    2x Monitor Audio Radius 90HD
    1x Kef IQ6


    Price and currency: £8,500 (will split)
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: Anyhow
    Location: Gloucester
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Would swap for fairly recent Sonus Faber floorstanders, or a half-decent sub-£500 1080p projector for the garden. Just don't tell the wife.

    Hi Mark, I’m interested in the monitor audio 225HD. Could you upload a picture, and would you be able to post to Middlesex?

    Hi Mark. What colour are the JBL control ones. Are they boxed and do you have the wall mounting brackets that they come with?

    Not threadspoiling, I was genuinely interested in the ceiling speakers. You have listed today everything that you bought yesterday on these forums for £3700 for a new price of £5900. That's just low man and I hope it won't be long till a mod comes along. That's not what these forums are about....

    The seller is free to list their items for what price they wish. If they are too high then this will obviously be represented with no offers.

    Many thanks

    It does look a bit like threadspoiling. But your maths is off:

    a) half the stuff I'm listing is gear I've been stockpiling for years and now have to clear. For instance, of the 19 items in this thread, 8 were bought from skr1. I'm storing them and - eventually - selling or using them. Initially, though, I wanted to make everything available for sale: something has to give as I'm swamped. I had planned to use the Monitor Radius fronts, but they're a few mm too big, so they now have to go, too.

    b) I bought extra items from Steve (a fellow hoarder) for more than £3700 because he needed to move them on. Furthermore, I won't get the asking price, which currently stands at £4775. So, maybe, I'll make a few hundred quid if I sell everything. More likely, a loss in Year 1 and I'll probably keep the projector, which was the lion's share of the purchase, and the reason I traveled 300 miles. Don't confuse profit with profiteering.

    Because of Steve's situation, he would have had difficulty itemising, photographing and listing each bit of kit individually - which is why you, and others, were unable to buy the things you wanted because it split the bundle. You're now able to do so, at the same price you would have paid Steve, and everyone (apart from my missus) should be happy.

    With so much gear to move, I'll happily field realistic low-ball offers to get it moving.

    My apologies. I thought avforums had a no profiteering rule but that must have been thrown out.

    @MarkWelsh Do you have packaging to post the 65c's? I wouldn't want the wooden boxes but they might possibly be the safest way to post them if not too bulky?

    The boxes are designed to protrude from the ceiling. It's your call, but I don't mind extracting and properly repacking them: off the top of my head, the postal cost might be £10 v £15 to send the boxes, too. Please see pic . . .

    No worries. I had the same problem: the Radius is a bit too deep to replace the Kef T301 centre. Hence the call-out for the Millennia LP XL...

    I have the three fronts: 2x IQ9 floorstanders, 1x IQ6 centre. Here's one pic of the IQ9 - will shoot the centre channel shortly . . .
    I have 2x KEF T surrounds (flat panel, black) that would match, or unmatched surrounds from Monitor, JBL and Wharfedale, but not the Kef IQ rears.

    The T101 are mint and boxed: they're currently installed in my lounge, but I kept all the original packing when I bought them last year.

    Pic attached. All complete. I'd go to £120 shipped. I have a couple of good 5.1 amps going cheap if you wanted something to complete your friend's system - in the Amp classified section.

    Will have a look,
    I’ll come back to you today re eggs, he also needs a sub as well so could potentially go for that.
    Trying to get him a 5.1 amp that’s cheap £100/150 mark that he can either Bluetooth or airplay/ Spotify his music too and obviously his home cinema, don’t think your lower end amps can do that, although the 3805 is a great amp for his home cinema there probably is a work around ?
    Thanks Steve

    An external Bluetooth receiver (£10-50) will feed the optical digital input of any old AV amp, and have the advantage of being upgradeable. This one is pretty good:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bluetooth-...Wireless-Black/dp/B06WD8Z21S/ref=sr_1_20_sspa

    An external Airport Express (£20-50) will do the same, and have the advantage of being more reliable - it's a kosher Apple interface rather than a third-party implementation. The Paradigm PDR80 sub would fit the bill, or a friend of mine has an old Kef 10-inch sub they might want to move on. I can check.

    PM me if you want to chat about a bundle of bits posted in one hit, or I could meet you somewhere. I'm out and about all over the place in the next two weeks . . .

    i bought a pair of T101's (mint, boxed, brackets etc) on here previously for £185, a few even before that went for the £160 mark but i dont think you will drop that low considering your starting price.

    So id like to offer the same as what iv bought earlier on here, £185 for the T101's.

    I could do £185 plus delivery on the 2x T101s, or £350 plus delivery on a bundle of 2x T101 + 1x T301.
