What Speakers Do You Own? - Page 3

post #31 of 280
Actually I own more than I listen to ...

Cambridge Ensemble (x2)
Infinity Micro (x3)
Infinity Minuette (3ea)
Infinity BR1 Subwoofer (x2)
JBL ProPerformers
Baby Advent II

I sold my original Advents years ago when I needed to downsize. Loved their sound but had no more room for large boxes. Infinity are used for the surround system, Cambridge for 2-channel audio as are the Baby Advents on the system setup for my mother. The JBL were used on my mini system but are currently just backups. If all goes well next year, I intend to reorganize and consolidate everything even further, hopefully replacing 2-channels with something better.

Sonus Faber Electas (the bigger brother of the still selling minima classic) http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/a...cture087-2.jpg (not mine but you get the idea) with a Linn Sizmik 12.45 sub on the main system (all Naim separates and power supplies and a Rega P5/ttpsu record spinner).


And Spendor 3/5SE's in the front with Linn Kans for the rear on the Linn Classik in the bedroom.

In sum, to ever resell anything large like speakers, I'd have to pay a 20% import duty (to bring them here), shipping costs 2 ways (into Cayman and then back to the US), plus airfare, car rental, and hotel costs to physically return to the US to receive the items that I've shipped back, not to mention the hassle of temporary storage and arranging to on-ship to the buyer when I'm not there to do it myself.

Of course, none of these costs are recoverable, so speakers that cost less than $10k end up in my closets after I've upgraded. I'd try to sell them locally, but really don't want all sorts of strange people wandering through my house, seeing all of my other gear, and then possibly getting bigger ideas.

If ever a trusted Head-Fi'er moves to Grand Cayman, I'd be willing to set him/her up with a pretty decent 2 channel or HT system at US-based (i.e, duty free) prices!

A ten years old, beautiful sounding pair of Jamo 128. A bit bigger than I really need, but I felt in love with them when I first listened to them.

Milon Air Reference II (special edition: tuned for my modded Audio Innovations First Audio Amplifier). The designer / builder is a friend of mine.... I have been his try-out since I bought his first attempt in the eighties.

Some DIY ones I made 12-13 years ago. 13" Audax bass, 6" Seas midrange and 1" Seas tweeter.
Solid built using 28mm MDF (2x 28mm some placed), weighing in at ~70kg per channel.
