I have a pair that my uncle made, 1970's i think - I have stored them in
study for last 4 years without moving them. I think they still work but
could not be sure of all 4 in each cab work. Back of units are full of
sheeps wool?.
I would like to move them onto someone who would like to spend some
time replacing/cleaning them - someone who would enjoy bringing them
to back to life and not just break them up.
I have no idea if they are worth anything?

Hi,

welcome to the forum.

You cannot load pictures onto this site, but you can point to them within a posting, if they are hosted elsewhere on a photo hosting site e.g. myjpegbay. They will then be displayed in your post here.

Also, I'm in Kent if you don't get any better offers for the speakers. PM me to discuss.

looks like a pair of early Cambridge Audio R 50's to me.
I've got the later build TL 200's myself, see my avatar(profilepicture).

Thank you, i am the second owner. They were always treated with care and even more important, with love (and respect for the designer, mr. Webb).
