Afternoon,
I’ve got a box of “brand new” (from 1980’s?) speaker’s that I’ve stored for as long as I can remember (used to belong to a family member).

Looking to sell them because they’re taking up space.

They’re in original polystyrene boxes in cardboard sleeves.

KEF Electronics LTD (Made In Kent England)
T27 - 2xHigh Frequency Units
B110 - 2xPieces (there are two boxes of these total so 4 speakers)
B139 - 2xPieces (there are two boxes of these total so 4 speakers)

Based in New Zealand

Have no idea of value - any indication is appreciated.

Figure they might be worth something to someone with a hobby or could equally be worthless but don’t want to throw them away in case.

TIA

Matt

Hello MWilNZ33,


for more detailed information, can you plese add the exact Partnumber, like B139SP1044 for all the other speakers. Kef alltimes build several versions of the speakers , depending of the usage.


All in al cound be worth form from US$600 upwards, if you find the right buyer. Simple the T27 are worth about $200 in perfect unused condition.



>Good luck<

They are definitely not worthless!!!!
These are going to be very, very attractive to some Baby Boomers and others.
There are a number (4-5) well known diy Transmission line designs that use the tweeter/mid/woofer combo' plus people who want to use the B110/T27 in LS3/5a clones. Plus the original KEF Concerto model.
B139s have featured in stand alone diy subs.....(HFN/RR mag')
As to value, if I was selling them on this side of the Tasman I would be looking at A$500 minimum, may up to A$700 for the right person.
If you Google Home Page hifiloudspeakers.info you'll find a UK site devoted entirely to KEF drivers from this period.
That will give you a flavour of how much affection some people hold for these units.
Cheers, Jonathan
