^^^ I think that's a bit steep to be honest.
+1.  That equals R6000 per pair

Fairish would be ~R4k and R3k respectively. Good would be R1k off that.
Resistance is not futile; it is voltage divided by current (R=V/I)

philips valve amplifier, model AG-9018

http://capetown.gumtree.co.za/c-Stuff-for-Sale-tv-audio-music-philips-amplifier-W0QQAdIdZ284627756

Thanks to U235 for this tip - discovered that these Primaluna amps were being sold by Vidivox locally and that they were willing to sell them at the minimum price, i.e. at the listed starting bid on Bid or Buy.
I bought the Primaluna Prologue 5 and I can honestly say that it is the biggest bargain - true high end! Sounds simply stunning!

Saw some Paradigm Monitor 7's, I think??? at Cash Converters in Centurion going for R1499.
Cabinets are not in good shape, but some renovation should fix it.

I'm not sure about the model though, but the sticker stated "Monitor 7". Standard 2.5 way 6.5" woofers.

Looked like a nicwe pair though.

Upgrading is just as certain as death and taxes.

Saw this one in Junkmail

http://www.junkmail.co.za/v-johannesburg-hitech-amplifiers-equalizers-loudspeakers-kef-1042-reference-floorstander-speakers-in-QZQYCatQX0106QYRgnQX0001QYAdQXF31941QYEdQX201122

I have no idea if R5000 is a good price, but it sounds fair ?



They are brilliant speakers. Hideous though. R5k is fair - US prices +- $750

I didn't notice that at all... :o
If tweeters are missing, then one can only guess what else in the cabinets are missing or broken.
