    Whilst obviously electronics and sound quality has come along a lot since then buying a 'complete stereo system' these days for about 600 would be considered a bargain.

    I see B&W 70 Monitor speakers were about 120 then. Hybrid electrostatics. Don't see many being sold these days. A pair came up a few years ago which I thought of grabbing. Interestingly when I look now I see a 70c pair being sold in Hove "requiring restoration" but seemingly in good cosmetic condition so may well be good inside. Big footprint though and probably a 3 man lift.

    Well they offered them to me then declined my offer as they think they are worth more so he's going to stick them in a auction not really worth it after fees they might not make anything i think think 50 was fair - i could have collected buy now and be done with you win some and loose some.

    Best get looking for the next pair..

    Yup, I'd think 50 was fair in unseen condition. Doubt a really good set would make much more than a ton.

    Certainly 150-200 min the rest is usually a freebie unless it's in immaculate condition. They are likely to be stripped sadly.

    I bought a pair of 700s a couple of years ago for 60, again untested
    The speakers sounded ok if nothing spectacular.
    I stripped the drivers out intending to sell the ribbons, a quick test on a simple cross over showed that the ribbons have a very high quality sound.. so they are still with me.

    I suspect the mid and bass drivers are partly the reason for this. I was wondering if a good 2 way wth a quality driver would sound better, like the ones in the Arundel. Not sure about a Fane driver though, only come across them in guitar amps really.

    The DK30 is vulnerable to excess power and can burn out the ribbon easily. Really, it is best used with as high a crossover point as possible, maybe 5kHz or above, with a minimum of second order filter slope. This makes tricky to implement in a two way system unless an extended range or full range driver is chosen to work with it.

    I was always worried about that, my Arundels had a potted Romagna Reproducers crossover but I don't know the high pass filter frequency or order.
