This breaks my heart a bit. I have been constantly on the move for the past 2 years, and carrying these speakers around is not ideal. So I have decided to sell my entire system, and rely on small portable speakers till I can find more of a permanent place. The combination sounds excellent especially after DIRAC is calibrated on the MiniDSP. Selling the speakers first since they are the most cumbersome. Will sell my amp and minidsp SHD after the speakers are sold.

I live in the NYC area, so if anyone wants to come and audition the system and take it away rather than ship, they are more than welcome. My user id on ebay is gpoduval, you can check my seller ratings there.

I personally cannot find any blemish etc. I have the original boxes.

Price is $1300+shipping. Shipping weight is ~65lbs.

I bought these in Sep 2019 from a seller on audiogon. They have spent most of their time in small apartments, so have never been pushed very hard. If you are on this website you already know the reputation of these speakers.

This is very similar to a build I'm thinking about putting together. Buckeye 2 channel NC252MP, miniDSP SHD, Kef R5. The tower speaker is essential for my build though, so can't use R3. If you happen to find a buyer who just wants the R3s, I'd be interested in the rest.

Updated post to say I will consider selling separately. But on the condition that the speakers go first. Otherwise I may get stuck with speakers without the electronics, and moving the speakers is what I'm trying to avoid.

Made a further edit to reduce confusion. Selling speakers only first. After they are sold, will put up the amp and minidsp shd for sale.

@AdamG247 can you please delete this thread ? Decided that it's worth the hassle to keep these speakers :)
