    1 owner from new and not seen the light of day for a few years, and after the comments here I'm a bit dubious as to what condition the drivers might be in. Cabinets look mint though but I'm sure that's no indication of the condition of the cones or surrounds. If any issue at all I'll walk away as it would be too much hassle having them sent away and fixed and wouldn't be worth it in my opinion, might be better to try and find a perfect pair, but then again most of the decent high gear is always for sale 100's of miles away.

    I've already arranged to go see/listen to them this morning but I think I'd have been better asking for photos of the drivers before even leaving the house.

    No idea of the surrounds though as no pictures...
    Sorry, missed this post, yeah that's the ones. Pity no driver photos but I think they're worth a look anyway?

    If the drivers haven't been done they probably will need done. Mine had a few small splits running outwards across the foam but still sounded great. If you got these for 1k and spent 500 on them you'll have a truly great pair of speakers for 1500, still a lot of money but try buying something similar new, probably about 5k. These look to be in great condition too. You can get the recone done at Tannoy Coatbridge as far as I know.

    Thanks, that's good to know about Coatbridge. I'll be haggling don't worry.

    Try doubling that or more. Even the new, small Tannoy Eaton is about five grand now. These Berkeleys are worth some effort, even if they do require a recone. The modern equivalents are monstrously expensive.

    If it was me and they needed new surrounds, I'd be going this route: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-TANNOY-f...AAAOSwsE5ZluVI

    A bit of practicality and common sense and it's not too difficult a job. I've done it .
