    For sale ProAc D28 floorstanding hifi-speakers.

    These are really good speakers, had to spend five time the original purchase price of these D28s to get something mildly better. Very natural sounding with great bass, so works for all kinds of music (especially for rock'n'roll) + I also used them for movies, gaming, etc. Google for D28 reviews - you'll find out that they are all fives stars.

    Condition: Couple of scratches here and there, but soundwise as good as ever. The speakers are maybe 3-4 years old (I'm the only owner, but can't remember exactly when I got them). Color: black.

    Carpet spikes and manual included. No original packaging. I'll throw in a pair of free extra speaker cables too!

    Price: 1250£ or best offer (Paid 3200£ at the time)

    Location: York (so easy drive from Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester, etc too)

    HIGH RESOLUTION PICTURES:
    Front with grills off
    Top with grills on
    Rear - Note same serial number on both (so a matched pair)
    Side view
    The other side - Note two scratches near the top of the left speaker
    FREE: speaker cables (value about 100£)

    Pics please. I take it these are ash black rather than gloss? Any fading behind the grills? Have a few more questions but pics paint a thousand words!

    Unfortunately I don't have a camera, here is a pic with my cellphone - picture quality is rubbish:
    Black ProAc D28

    Yes, the color is black ash. I took the grills off and didn't notice anything special about the color.

    No boxes unfortunately - the boxes were as large as my flat at the time so had to get rid of them.

    I'm looking for a bit more than 800£.

    As as a very subtle hint I can say whoever offers even four digits first gets to take these D28s home.

    Unfortunately no postage - that's part of the reason for the price: should be cheap enough to be worth hassling somebody living close enough to come pick them up, heh.

    It's always kinda difficult to judge what is considered a visible scratch and what isn't - that's why uploaded such high resolution pictures that everybody can judge for themselves. I'd say it's those 2 and if you really zoom in on the top view image you can kinda make out a very thin scratch on the left hand side.

    All potential buyers are of course welcome to inspect the condition in real life too!
