Hello. I have found a pair that appear in good condition for $100.

Is this speaker in keeping with KEF quality? Is this a worthwhile price?

Is there anything I should look out for when buying a speaker of this vintager age??

or should I keep looking?

Thanks,

Peter

The 303 mkII is an updated Celeste III/IV.

Visually look through the fabric with the aid of a flashlight to make sure all the drivers are undamaged and original.

Make sure the tweeters tweet and the woofers woof and there are no rattles or buzzing noises. Inspect the spring terminals and make sure they work

and try to find some 20" stands to mount them on.

If they function well your ~£50 will be well spent Very Happy .
