Curious how that became the one to hunt for.

It seems to be one that pops up a lot as a good old speaker, so thought it would make sense starting here, plus the few write ups I read seemed very positive..

Epos ES11 would be my first choice but that could be a long long long wait..  hoping I might have faster luck on the Arcam Deltas.

Good starting point-also a fan of these. More affordable than other beauties listed and hopefully more floating around.

Let's see what pops out of the woodworks!

Easier to drive than Epos me thinks too.  And yes. HiFi installations Jhb sold many.  As a shop though they were rather good at selling quality product to music lovers.  (Perhaps the records sold there helped).  So lots out there but many in the hands of non audiophiles who may very well still be  happy with what they bought back then.

Sold plenty from the Northgate shop too, after Fox Street closed down. Great speakers...

Best I have heard them was on a LP12(full House), Audio Research SP9 and Quad 606. On custom stands👏👏👏

Deon from Avsa has a pair of Arcam Two + he might sell to you.  From my understanding they are very similar to the Delta 2, just the previous model on which the Delta 2 was the follow up or newer replacement. But I may be wrong.

I have a pair of these in pristine condition...black finish with covers. R5k would be a good place to start. I'm in Port Elizabeth.

So, your first & the only post on the forum is that you have this rare speaker to offer, that's very impressive.
Firstly, welcome to the forum, will be interesting to know what other equipment are you using?
Can you post some pictures of the speakers?

Thanks, I found a pair already but they are the Two +, Iím coming down to Pe in a week or two and would like to view them please.

They are very nice speakers, since I got my pair Iíve been neglecting my other speakers which cost way way more but these just have something nice and musical about them and some damn serious bass..
