Many people here probably know Chris Human, the Maggie repair specialist there in Middelburg.
I got a message from him yesterday that he has a set of Magnepan MG2.6 for sale.

Price: R20k
Apparently the new price is R75k

Spotted on e-Piphany's Gumtree ad (there are lots of interesting items there) - https://www.gumtree.co.za/u-seller-listings/hein/v1u100001206p1

Several sets of Dali Zensor pico speakers at an amazing price of R3500

What Stereophile said:  The Zensor 1 effortlessly belts out its funky tunes, firing energy into catchy beats with a potent sense of attack and rhythmic drive.

Skip to one of the album’s downtempo tracks, Within, and notes pull through with definition and weight. The Dalis sound more solid and sure-footed close to a rear wall (whether stood on stands or wall-mounted) and deliver greater low-end presence at the same time.

Considering the diminutive size of the speakers, the openness of the soundstage takes you by surprise. You’ll hear that it’s detailed and balanced, too.

Bass is taut, and clean, sparkly highs meet a clear and communicative midrange. Dynamic insight usually makes or breaks speakers at this level, but the Dalis do not stumble. They’re slick and agile enough for the piano of Within to come through fluidly.

However dynamics need a touch more expression (particularly at the quieter sections) and a larger scale to match the Q Acoustics and Wharfedales of the budget speaker world.

Hi,

I spotted this in Riviersonderend at an antique shop.

I only took a quick picture, but can vouch that they look very well looked after.

According to the proprietor it belonged to the Rupert family (or the Wiese family) (or similar).
He mentioned a R12 000 price tag.  Said the tuner is a rare find.
Also said people already wanted to buy it, but he wants to put it in his shop 1st....

Nice... I have the exact same setup as one of my vintage pieces as well, sans the equaliser.

There is no equalizer, I believe you are referring to the unit on top which is actually the Sansui QS-100 quadraphonic synthesizer. I have the Sansui QS-1 which is the same thing but with proper analogue UV meters. Essentially, you feed the stereo signal into the unit and it generates two additional channels for the rear speakers.

Never seen this before.  The manual in the pic refers to it as Sansui 4-channel rear amplifier....."surround sound" already way back?
