Would anyone in Melbourne Australia know where i can get my hands on a pair or even a one of, Richard Allan HP8B or Wharfedale super 12 rs dd. Cant make cones out of dollar notes but i can swap them for speakers that make musical notes.
This is not what you want to hear but if you are desperate, I think I saw a big, early Wharfedale 12" on eBay a couple of weeks ago (Syd' I think) and I am pretty sure I saw the RA's on a vintage site in the UK! SORRY! They would have been in that funny semi-TLS they made.
But I am sympathetic. I always thought the RA's would be fun to use but the last time I saw one was in Radio Parts North Melbourne in about 1979 and they were $45 a throw. I have HF1300's and STC 4001's and thought they would make a good B&W DM2A clone or similar.........
And if you can get THREE of the HP8B's Ill buy the other 2 from you.......
Hi Conehead, you still after a pair of Richard Allan HP8B's?
Yesterday I noticed a pair on ebay and actually in Melbourne.
The auction runs out next Sunday (the 26th Feb 2012) afternoon. They are in the Electronics catergory then go to "Speakers and subwoofers".
