Default FS (UK): Zaph ZD5

So, with great reluctance I have decided to sell my beloved Zaph ZD5s. This is a well know design but here's the link:

Zaph|Audio - ZD5 - Scan Speak 15W8530K00 and Vifa XT25

This is a truly awesome speaker. When building I followed the designs pretty much to the letter.

Here's the madisound order confirmation so you can see the parts chosen:

Products
------------------------------------------------------
2 x 0.3mH 19AWG Air Core Inductor () = $5.90
2 x 0.25mH 19AWG Air Core Inductor () = $5.50
2 x 0.15mH 19AWG Air Core Inductor () = $5.00
4 x 0.5mH 19AWG Air Core Inductor () = $13.40
4 x Eagle- 6 ohms () = $4.80
4 x Eagle- 4 ohms () = $4.80
2 x Bennic 80 mfd Electrolytic () = $3.60
2 x Bennic 100 mfd Electrolytic () = $4.00
2 x Bennic Poly 4.7 mfd () = $4.30
2 x Eagle- 2.5 ohms () = $2.40
2 x Eagle- 5 ohms () = $2.40
4 x Bennic Poly 12 mfd () = $16.20
2 x Bennic Poly 3.3 mfd () = $3.20
2 x Bennic Poly 1 mfd () = $1.30
2 x 15W/8530K-00 5" Revelator woofer - Low Qts () = $415.80
2 x XT25TG30-04 1" Ring Radiator tweeter () = $96.40
2 x 1.0mH 19AWG Air Core Inductor () = $9.40
2 x Eagle- 2.7 ohms () = $2.40
2 x Eagle- 1.5 ohms () = $2.40
------------------------------------------------------
Sub-Total: $603.20
International Quote Tool (*International Orders Only*): $0.00
Total: $603.20

Add to that shipping and customs, and the cost of just speaker related parts comes in at around 500 +. Add quality wood, damping materials, binding posts etc and the cost to build well exceeds 600 and that doesn't even begin to take into account the hours taken to build them.

They're constructed from 18mm 13 ply birch plywood, all edges rounded and sprayed black.
I must be honest here, and say that there are some minor imperfections in the finishing. If there are any interested people I will be glad to provide close up shots all around.
The first photo below in fact shows them sprayed black with a spray can. I have since redone this with a proper spray gun so they are looking a little better than that. As I said, if there is interest, I can provide a many shots. Anyone would also be welcome to come round and inspect/listen to them if they wished. I'm in London, E2.

I'm going to ask 500 for them. I'm sure you could not find better sounding speakers for this money.

Thanks
