    If anything, I'd say the starting price is low. I expect to see them sell for possibly over 1500.

    The driver is the professional version of the lovely sounding 3128 unit, as employed in the Balmoral, Bradley and Cheviot Mk.II models. The main differences are I believe, a higher power rated bass coil and durable rubber roll cone surround instead of the foam used on the models mentioned.

    Nice pair of Tannoy Little Red Monitor 12" here at 1200. I previously linked to some Super Gold Monitor 12X a few posts back, which are the slightly more upmarket floor standing version.

    Cheap Tannoy fun here. A pair of DC1000 at 99 'buy it now'. Proper dual concentrics that have plenty of punch and image extremely well. Bit of a bargain!

    Not strictly hifi related - but too hilarious to pass up:

    (apparently '17 sold already' )

    ... for reference - here is a working Mac Mini (complete with baseplate) = 100 bin price:

    Assume its a misprint. Probably a decimal point issue

    Interesting pair of Eatons (although the seller describes them by their driver name). Cabs a bit battered, missing one Tannoy badge but with drivers looking ok(ish). Of course no way if they have been driven hard without a listen.

    Seems fairly priced, judging from recent sales, at 550 BIN (and taking offers).
