Their sound is clean and even though they are wide fronted, the imaging is excellent. I'm a big fan and they are ridiculously underated.
    I wouldn't sell mine at all. I even have a full set of replacement drivers for them. But if I was to sell them, I would be lucky to get a ton. That's the bizarre thing about hi-fi; how good it is and how much it is worth can be two entirely different things.

    I've got the sw-156s and think they look sweet, wouldn't sell them either.

    Fifty quid's about right. I'll bet that behind the fancy slotted lenses (which are probably plastic), lurk cheapo paper cone tweeters. If they're really dreadful, they'll have silver dust caps!

    it is about right but I'd say from experience they will be a lot better than you think. Lovely condition and with the proper stands and original boxes, too.

    They do look flimsy compared to other drivers but as Martin says they do surprise you, and I do think they look pretty without grills on.

    Tannoy T145 Ascots with 'wallpapered' cabinets in London. Still well worth having, they are proper pepperpot dual concentrics.

    Very rare opportunity. Coral Beta 8 fullrange speaker drive units in great condition. Amazing!

    Here's a better picture.

    Being a bit stupid, is the 'dust cap' an acoustically transparent cover over the high frequency horn part of the dual-concentric driver?
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
