    Default FS: JBL L40 speakers & spare pair JBL 127A drivers

    JBL L40 speakers with a spare pair original JBL 127A bass drivers

    For sale my JBL L40 speakers, in great condition, full original spec, never modified and full working order, I bought these for keeps and thus sought out the extra pair of drivers as back up spares. I had both the foam edge surrounds replaced which was completed to a very high standard by Wembley Loudspeaker in November 2016 (Askew Crescent, London) and have the receipt.

    These have been well cared for and are in time warp condition, there is no musty smell or any odour from inside the cabinet or internal foam damping lining, exterior wood or the original grills.

    (The spare pair drivers are working fine and just need new foam edge surrounds).

    Sell for, 400. I have no boxes so these are collection only. Payment via Bank transfer.

    NOW SOLD

    Great speakers. I'd have them if I wasn't speakered up to the eyeballs at the moment. A bargain for the sound quality on offer!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Just a plus from a L40 owner!

    Fantastic speaker that works well with a 10watt plus valve amps.

    I've read somewhere the L40's were one of the best sounding small book shelf speakers they made.

    You're at Scalford again this year, I think? If anyone wants to hear what these can do, then they should pop over to your room, and be prepared to hear one of the finest sounds I've ever heard. Your room last year with the JBL's was easily one of the best and I could have sat in there all day. Think it would be fair to say hifi critics have a lot to answer for with vintage JBL's.

    I'm sure I remember reading that too and thinking - they must have had 'big' small book shelf's back then! These aren't small!

    Yes they will be a scalford again and will be power by my Quad II's & 22 preamp.

    I'm also taking along a 25 watt Class A Electocompainet amp and preamp if it stops frying it drive transistors!
