  1. A rare opportunity to purchase: ***SÅLD***Three-meter stereo pair of single-wire Analysis Plus Solo Crystal Oval 8 loudspeaker cables, with highest-quality factory-installed locking WBT bananas (model 644) on amp end and high-quality gold-plated AP T1 spades (machined from one block) on speaker end; ***SÅLD***Three-meter stereo pair of single-wire Analysis Plus Silver Oval loudspeaker cables, with high-quality gold-plated AP T1 spades (machined from one block) on both ends; ***SÅLD***210-centimeter stereo pair of Analysis Plus Oval One interconnect cables with solderless RCA connectors. All cables have been well cared for in a pet-, smoke-, (vacuum cleaner-wielding) spouse-, and child-free household. The spades of the AP Oval 8 and the AP Silver Oval show light signs of normal use (marks from terminal locking mechanism). The AP Oval One is like new, used just for a couple of days, still with the original packaging. I have very successfully used the AP Oval 8s and Silver Ovals in a shotgun biwire configuration (Silver Ovals for HF, Oval 8s with their remarkable bass extension for LF), and the AP Oval One as a subwoofer cable. The termination of these cables is very favorable for this use (can be conveniently and with no sonic compromise attached to just 2 x 1 cable posts on the amp end). As you probably already know, these are reference-quality speaker cables original-designed and manufactured (not just repackaged, as is becoming the standard...) by a premier U.S. precision electrical-engineering company originally known for its work in advanced application contexts such as for NASA. Analysis Plus means no gimmicks, snake oil, prestige parts, vanity designs, or anything else that's not exclusively based on pure science and ingenious American engineering skills. In a word, they are highest-quality audio cables for a price that's extremely reasonable and immune to fashion and passing fad; what you get is 100% top quality and 0% nonsense. The Oval 8 and Silver Oval speaker cables frequently feature in the reference systems of audio and music reviewers for the more critical American, Asian, and European press and are used in recording and broadcasting studios the world over. They are favorites of numerous professional musicians beginning with Neil Young's touring band. I have yet to hear cables that in any way audibly improve over them, and for this money there certainly aren't any such available. More information on these cable models and the AP engineering science & philosophy is available at the Analysis Plus home pages . You can find many reviews for example in Stereo Times -- go to Archives --, in SoundStage (by Marc Mickelson), or in 6Moons, though you probably already know the reputation of these cables only rarely appearing on the European second-hand markets. My asking price is 40 % of the price when new (from Audio Concept Stockholm), as follows:: AP Oval 8: new price 14 500 kronor; my asking price is 5 800 kronor. AP Silver Oval: new price 8 700 kronor; my asking price is 3 480 kronor. AP Oval One: new price 1 500 kronor; my asking price is 600 kronor. (I will also consider any other reasonable offers.) This could be your chance of a lifetime to become an Analysis Plus user. Please write me for photos or further details. Det går förstås bra att skriva på svenska. If local pickup is not an option, buyer pays all shipping and insurance charges. Thanks for looking! Polarius T
  2. (Apologies for the English!) ***SÅLD***Offering for sale a pair of B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) Matrix 803 Series 2 medium-sized reference-quality floorstanding loudspeakers for 11 000 kronor (or best reasonable offer). These are the most recent and advanced of the legendary Matrix models, preferred by many hi-fi enthusiasts over the later Nautilus series. They should make a nice upgrade from the B&W 805, N804, 804S, and possibly even the N803 models, to say nothing of the 700, the 600, and the CDM series. They will also serve wonderfully as rear units in a top-range B&W multichannel setup. The Matrix 803 S2 is a very neutral two-way reference-class speaker. It has a remarkably flat frequency response, no colorations, excellent dynamics, and a very nice high frequency and low frequency extension (the bass is remarkably detailed and tight, and I have used these as a main stereo pair without a sub). Peter Aczel of The Audio Critic, one of the more critically-minded and thorough reviewers out there, strongly endorsed this model as "a very well-designed, very accurate, one could say almost flawless, monitor-type loudspeaker... a contender for reference status... pretty much above criticism." The complete review is here. Doug Schneider of SoundStage (available here) compared the 803 Series 2 model to the recording studio legend B&W Matrix 801 while considering it to be superior to the bigger Matrix 802 units. User reviews are available at AudioReview by clicking here. For manual, additional information, and stock images click here. The speakers have been meticulously cared for in a pet-, smoke-, child-, and (up until now) spouse-free household and maintain their original sheen. They are in excellent condition in every way and have no repair history. They come with upgraded spikes, a spare tweeter unit, original packaging, manuals, brochure, etc. The model is rare on the market. The price when new was more than 3000 US dollars. I'm selling them due to recent upgrade and am willing to consider reasonable offers. Due to size and weight I would prefer a personal pickup. The speakers are in Göteborg. Please email me for photos or more information. Det går bra att skriva på svenska också. Thanks for looking.

  5. (Apologies for the English!) Offering for sale a pair of B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) Matrix 803 Series 2 medium-sized reference-quality floorstanding loudspeakers for 12 000 kronor (or best offer). These are the most recent and advanced of the legendary Matrix models, preferred by many hi-fi enthusiasts over the later Nautilus series. They should make a nice upgrade from the B&W 805, N804, 804S, and possibly even the N803 models, to say nothing of the 700, the 600, and the CDM series.

The complete review is at http://www.theaudiocritic.com/back_issues/...Critic_21_r.pdf For more details, see also Doug Schneider's nice report in SoundStage at http://www.soundstage.com/das_bw.htm, comparing the 803 Series 2 model to the recording studio favorite B&W Matrix 801 while considering it to be superior to the bigger Matrix 802 units. The speakers have been meticulously cared for in a pet-, smoke-, child-, and (up until now) spouse-free household and maintain their original sheen. There are a couple of small nicks on the side of one of the units that are not easily visible; on the whole, the speakers are basically near mint, almost like new. They come with upgraded spikes, a spare tweeter unit, original packaging, manuals, brochure, etc. The model is rare on the market. The price when new was 3000 US dollars. I'm selling them due to upgrade and am willing to consider reasonable offers. Due to size and weight I would prefer a personal pickup. Please email me for photos or more information. Det går bra att svara på svenska om du vill. The speakers are in Göteborg. Please also see my separate ad for: - Three-meter stereo pair of Analysis Plus Solo Crystal Oval 8 loudspeaker cords; - Three-meter stereo pair of Analysis Plus Silver Oval loudspeaker cords; - 210-centimeter stereo pair of Analysis Plus Oval One interconnect cables; - 60-centimeter stereo pair of van den Hul The First Ultimate all-carbon interconnect cables.
