***ATTENTION ALL AUDIOPHILES***THIS IS IT***THE HOLY GRAIL OF VINTAGE AUDIO

THE ONE YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR - VERY LIKELY THE ONE YOU'VE BEEN DREAMING OF OWNING IS RELUCTANTLY ON OFFER.

On offer is one genuine and original ULTRA-RARE vintage Tannoy Monitor Silver 15" Driver with original matching Crossover.

If you're reading this and your pulse has quickened then you know about high end speakers & audio equipment and you will know this speaker.

I've been fortunate enough to have had a Grandfather & Father who loved to listen and only the best would do. This 15 inch Tannoy Monitor was purchased new by my Grandfather, early 1950's in New Plymouth. He'd come home, light his pipe and sit in his study listening in MONO, hooked up to a Garrard 301 grease bearing turntable & Williamson GW18 tube amp. Early memories of glowing tubes & rich tobacco smoke... I'm VERY attached to this thing as you've likely gathered.

I have been the custodian of this since Dad passed. The checks went superbly well and I've never heard sound accuracy like this before (both parents were broadcasters here in NZ, so was I until I discovered classic cars, so I've spent my fair share of time in the studio). No crackle, pops, distortion or interference of any sort. Original paper cone. The efficiency is mind blowing.

A number of people overseas want to buy it (offering 10K Euro+shipping) but If I can sell to a NZ owner who will give it the home it deserves, then I would want nothing more than to have it stay in this country.

You get what you pay for in this life and therefore for the best type of speaker system you should be prepared to spend more. The results literally speak for themselves (think cinema level sound from a single 20W channel).

It weighs a ton so shipping is out of the question and also why NZ gets 1st dibs!
