Hi all

 

 

 

As much as I love and adore these speakers, I'm going to have to sell them.  Buying a house has taken priority over owning nice things - at least for now.

 

So, I'm sure everyone knows the JBL 530's after Zeos Pantera's review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAJavBmoAaQ

 

These speakers are not as good as he makes them out to be.  They're better.

 

My recommendation, if you can do it, is to come and have a listen before you buy.

 

I've also got the (apparently) rare and sought-after Cherry wood veneer ones.

 

I'm looking for offers over $1000.

 

 

 

They are sonically in perfect condition and physically in fantastic condition, with a tiny defect in the one speaker's veneer, that's how I got them originally. (I'll post photos a little later)

 

I don't have the original packaging, but have all the bits and pieces that it came with, including the manual, banana-plug terminated speaker wire and the small waveguides.

PM me if you have any questions.

I can't afford your speakers :(  but I wanted to say I am super jealous of your sweet set-up. Have we had a "show us your command centre" brag post on here before? (going to hunt it down....)

Thanks - yeah, I love my setup too (a little too much, my wife would say).  It also took me *years* to get to this point, so just give it time.  :)

That's actually a Nuforce Icon HDP DAC, and it's bloody marvellous. I used to have an ASUS ROG Phoebus PCI-E sound card, but took that out since this does everything I need for music and gaming.
