I just found this add, http://www.audiogold.co.uk/catalogue/used-audio-sales/loudspeakers/ls3/5a/p_105.html.
Is the suggested price normal for these speakers? I think they're rather expensive.

As Richard Goldsmith does film and theatre prop hire, the price is probably right for "luvvies" and real actors.

I may have posted the link here somewhere but am too senile to remember if or where...

The latest BBC World Service auction, the bidding started for many battered but working LS35As at £10, there were BBC, Chartwell etc...

I did not bother bidding as the outcome was predictable. Cool
Average price was £1,700 plus fees, commission etc.! Shocked

Phase 1: http://www.ppauctions.com/auction.php?id=67

Phase 2: http://www.ppauctions.com/auction.php?id=71

I hate looking at stuff I cannot afford, ho hum. Crying or Very sad

Outrageous price !... what planet are people on ? Are they THAT good ? (I've heard loads.. I just don't "get" this whole LS3/5 a thing.

Have I got cloth ears or immunity from Hyperbole ?

I could understand it from a collectors point of view, I bet most will end up on ePrey! However, no signs yet...

Having heard the new KEF LS50 which sells for about £800 I know which I would rather have here!
