Lindsay did post ,sooner or later for the 500 quid pair . Also ,in fairness , he also typed that they could go for a whole lot more than 500 quid.
Bidding at £670 so far with three days to go yet.
Bidding completed at £896
Bidding completed at £1182
A single 66 speaker being offered for a minimum bid of £400
When do you think that £500 pair will come along?
The pair I was looking at sold for £871. Just wait for a fully working pair with chipped / stained cabinets and you'll get them for nearer to £500. There was also a pair sold recently on German eBay for £671 in "top zustand" condition.
Or alternatively: OK you win that one Chebby. Forget my suggestion for Celestion 66's. Buy some other proper-sized, well-engineered speakers for £500 instead.
Some epos m22 available secondhand, any thoughts on if could cope with space or just general thoughts on the speakers? they are the original, not I versions
A £300 pair of Celestion Ditton 66's has come along:
If you're patient and not fussy about cosmetics the right hi-fi equipment at the right price will come along sooner or later.
Would anyone here with Monitor Audio RX6's or Mission MX5's or Epos Epic 5's or Tannoy DC6T's like to get together with myself to compare them against my EV Sentry III's? Tell you what, I'll even use my Sentrys with my £99 Creek CAS4040 integrated amp, whilst you can use your MA's or Missions or Epos or Tannoys with any amplifier you wish.
Not really. Just trying to offer a contemporary alternative. From your original list, you can get one (note, one ) Celestion Ditton 66 for £400 on eBay: here.
There are also two - note two - Celestion 66's for sale on UK eBay with a £500 bid on them and 11 hours to go. They may sell for much more or they may sell for pretty close to £500. Usual eBay buying advice applies: don't overbid as another pair will come along sooner or later for about £500. My list wasn't intended to be at all exhaustive but was merely an indication of the sort of speakers the OP should be looking for if he wants the best overall sound for his large room for his budget.
It's funny. I've made several offers to get together with other members of this forum to compare various hi-fi components. As I think it's better to show than to tell. Nobody has taken me up on my offers - so far.
Do you live anywere near Norwich and what sort of music can we bring / listen to
Musical fidelity M6i Roksan caspian M2 cdp Atc scm 40s Tellurium Q black speaker cable chord chamelian xlr graham slee novo sennheiser hd598
I live in West Yorkshire. You can bring any sort of music and I'll bring some too. I should be at Scalford Hall on 2nd and 3rd of March 2013 along with about 50 other Wigwammers with their systems. That's not too far from Norwich.
Yup should be good fun again this year, bringing my new maggies along.
I really dont think any of the modern floorstanders mentioned will really work in such a big room.
With that budget I would be looking at older Tannoys, you might even bag some Cheviots for that price if you are lucky!
Tannoy DC3000 or Jupiter S are worth a look, as are the older Devon and T-Series Tannoys.
Kord Tornado, if you can find a pair.
Or some full range horns like some Jericho's:
