    We are moving house very soon, and rather than letting these excellent speakers sit unused in their boxes until we move into somewhere (and to give me an excuse to buy floorstanders ;) ), I am offering them up for sale. I bought them off these forums about 2½ years ago, and they are still in excellent condition and sound brilliant. Front covers and all accessories included.

    Info regarding pickup: Until Sunday 23rd these can be picked up near Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk - after that they are moving with us up to Aberdeenshire. I have the original boxes and about 100m of spare bubble wrap, so the buyer is also free to arrange a courier at their own risk/expense.

    Price and currency: £575
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: BT, PPG or cash in hand
    Location: Barrow, Suffolk

    Thanks for the offer, but a set of three MK II's just went for £800 a week ago, so I don't want to drop the price that much at the moment. :)

    My father is courier and is actually going to be in Cambridge today at around midday. So really I'd need to hear back before then as the chances of him coming to your area again before the end of the week are pretty low. And the chances of him coming to Bonny Scotland are even less! :)

    Hi mate, £475 is still a bit lower than I'd like, but we are getting closer :)

    £490 is as high as I can psychologically go I'm afraid. I don't actually need the speakers atm as my room isn't built yet, so I'd just be banking them in the hope that I one day get the time to away from two young kids to build the damn thing!

    Yeah, I know what you mean :)
    On the other hand, I don't really need to get rid of them either - to be honest, if I can't get what I am hoping for, I will just hold on to them until my home cinema is up and running again.

    Hello, would you be willing to sell just the front left & right? That would mean you can get floorstanders:smashin:
    If so could you post a picture of them?

    Sorry, I would prefer to sell them as a set, really - since I am going for a different brand of speakers for fronts, I want a matching center as well. These really are great together though - I have never had such a great cohesion between the front 3, and I am rather hoping to be able to get an identical front 3 next time as well :)

    ok, no problem. I was after some stand mounters for stereo duties as have matched in-wall speakers for the fronts. Really looking for something in black anyway but the reviews i've read made them tempting.
    Good luck with selling them.

    Hi I'd be quite interested in these if we could sort something out, but I'm in Nottingham. I'd only really want to pay £500 as well as I'd have to pay out a fair bit of money to upgrade them to mk 2 crossovers to match up with the others I've already got. Both of your addresses are a million miles away from the midlands though so if you were happy with the amount I'm not sure what could be sorted as I don't really trust couriers. Hmm its a tough one.

    Just wondering if you could drop the speakers off in Newcastle on your way to Aberdeenshire?

    Right, move completed - the speakers are now in Aberdeenshire. I will try to dig out the speakers among the other boxes and take some photos in a bit. They are all in very good shape, though - no marks that I can think of. Let me know if you have any specific requests re: pictures.

    I am happy to let them go by courier, but I don't think we're going very far down the road for the foreseeable future.

    If you can do them for £500 delivered then I'm interested. If you want to check courier prices and get back to me then no problem. I'm in Nottingham.

    If you can offer £500 plus courier and sort it out yourself, we have a deal

    Sorry mate, we were already on the road and past Edinburgh, when you posted. I can still offer delivery by courier if you're interested and prepared to organise it yourself?

    We do come down to Sheffield every once in a while, but it might be a bit until next time. You are free to organise a courier though. The speakers are safely boxed in their original packaging, and I can stuff the boxes with bubble wrap to be sure they're safe.

    Can you let me know if these speakers have the front grilles? I can't seem to find any pics of them. Also do you have any specs on them, crossover and freq response. Also dimensions would be great if you have them?

    Thanks

    They are indeed complete with front grills, port bungs and jumper plugs for tuning - moving to PM.
