    Tannoy T145 Ascots in nice condition. Bidding already up to 301, with over two days to go. Will these fetch a record price?

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tannoy-T1...53.m1438.l2649

    The Ascot tends to be 'below the radar' as far as Tannoys go, but actually sounds pretty damn good. It has the real 'pepperpot' DC magic.

    Yes. I've got a pair!

I was really surprised at how detailed and warm they sound. I've got a few speakers at home and would rate the old missions up there as some quality speakers.
    On a side note a pair of these sold in may for 95 so could be worth it if they only need refoaming. The cabinets are fine and little blemishes and knocks are just a part of their old life lol.

    Hopefully someone who has more experience with mission speakers could offer some advice too

    Thanks Taz

    Probably not worth while even though at face value they seem good value. Still only 23 for two pairs. It will be interesting to see if anyone grabs them and for what.

    I had some Mission Freedoms at some point (the one with the silk tweeters), surprisingly detailed and full sound but second hand values were very low. Sold them on for peanuts - I think 50.

    That's the problem with selling them on, if one knows the mission brand of old they will buy them but these buyer's are far and few in today's market.

    I've just bought another pair of 781s with a dodgy non stock driver and butchered front baffle for a few quid, will be using these for parts but still I couldn't believe they went so cheap. Even in parts they are worth much more so i agree the work needed on the 720s may not bring back the money in a resale

Funnily enough the withdrawn bidder on the Matisse has withdrawn a total of 6 bids, so I don't think it's the first time the winner of it has used this method
    Yes, but how can you withdraw a bid? I thought if you made a bid that was the highest bid, and no other bid was made that outbid you, you would be the winner and would be committed to complete the purchase. Obviously I'm missing something here.

    Yes. Bids can be withdrawn. A reason is asked, 'mistake' is the obvious one.

    You can withdraw any bid up to a certain time before auction ends. The option is there in case you enter the wrong amount ie: 999.00 instead of say 99.00

    Ah - is that a recent option? I've been using ebay for years, and always thought (and you are reminded by ebay) that if your bid was the highest when the bidding closes, you are contractually obliged to complete the purchase.

    Having said that, I have been outbid on a couple of items only to have the seller contact me to say the winning bidder could not/would not complete, so would I be interested in buying the item for the amount I bidded? Again, I always assumed those 'winning' bidders who defaulted would be reported by the sellers and their bidding rights would then be withdrawn.
