Marcus Stickley Reporter from Dominion Post

Littering costs ratepayers in the Wellington region millions and millions of dollars each year as councils clean up after people who can't be bothered using public or household bins.

High class stereo speakers and stands

Purchased from The Listening Post who no longer stock them. This is what they say:
‘It's been said before, that there is no speaker more sonically coherent than the Paradigm Signature range. These speakers are made to reveal sound as the artist intended it to be. These speakers take us from the mundane to the magical, beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary.
The Signature S2 speakers are a larger more 'beefier' version than the S1. They are intended to be used in a larger area where volume could be concerned. The 7" woofer gives very deep bass, while the Beryllium dome tweeters create crystal clear exuberant high frequencies
The signature range exhibit some of Paradigms most extraordinary manufacturing techniques which allows for this extremely high fidelity sound. Pure Beryllium Tweeter domes for example, for its exceptional thermal, physical and mechanical properties. This gives instantaneous response and uniformity.
Another notable innovation is the Co-Pal (Cobalt-Infused Anodized Pure-Aluminium Bass / Midrange Cones). This combines high stiffness-to-mass with superior internal damping for exceptional accuracy. The result is smooth and completely uncoloured frequency response.’
Note: The ones I am selling are the v1 series with the G-Pal Aluminium tweeter.
New price was $5,500. The speakers are in their original packing cases. Cherry veneer. One has marks on the bottom from blue tac. (Not visible when the speakers are on their stands.) I now use museum wax. (No marks.)

Speaker stands: Sound creations 3 column. New price NZ$600.
Speaker cables: 2 x 3 metre speaker cables Wireworld Luna 4 core with Wireworld banana plugs and Monster Xterm pin plugs. New price $170.

I am selling because we have moved to a smaller house so I am moving from high quality analogue gear to Sonos gear. BooHoo.

Price: $2,400
