    Selling these on behalf of a mate.

    I’ve got them at my house at the moment, whilst I’m in between speakers, and they sound lovely.

    Come with original packaging.

    Excellent condition apart from one tiny nick on the top left edge of one of them.

    £975 inc P&P (without insurance. Insurance will cost more)

    £1000 with stands included if you can collect from Stroud, Gloucestershire. Cannot remember what the stands are, I think they might be Soundstyle. They fit the P3 perfectly.

    hi if I can collect them on the 10th or 11th July I will take them for 900 inc stands?

    I was thinking the same thing!

    He doesn’t want to accept less than £900, so if this was with the stands he’d feel like he was getting less than £900.

    Could either do £900 collected or £925 with the stands.

    Nagraboy How’d all these people get in my room?

    I’ll second that. No better speaker at this price IMO and I’ve bought two pairs brand new.

    I have a pair of black ash P3ESRs, I can’t imagine ever parting with them, unless I absolutely had too. Wonderful speakers that are a delight with many different types of music, also brilliant at low volumes. Mine are paired with Teddy Pardo MB100s, although I have a real itch to try them with a Leben CS300 amp :)

    I am also amazed these haven’t sold already :eek:

    I wanted to let these sell before commenting. I am interested in some P3s to use with my cs300 but find black Ash the least desirable finish. I would be interested to see a breakdown of sales by finish. Horses for courses ofc but I suspect the harbeth crowd prefers the others over black. I would be happy to pay more for rosewood or even better eucalyptus. Even cherry if a standard finish. IMO ofc

    I’m sure you’re right there. I’m certainly in the camp that prefers the other finishes. However, these actually surprised me when I got them home and set up. The photos online do not do the finish justice. They look really nice in my room. The cabinet work is right up there with the best for fit and finish.

    I actually prefer this finish to my cherry pair that I used to own. I always think of your cheap aiwa/eltax type finishes when I think of black ash. Certainly not how they are in reality!

    I agree with The Eliz. I like the black Ash finish and prefer it over cherry and other premium finishes. Harbeth offer the monitor 20.1(same as ESR) to professional customers in black ash as their standard finish.

    I am not a fan of the cherry wood finish TBH, not only for these speakers, but in general, so would always steer away from this. Black Ash is also quite 80's but they don't look or feel it, very slick and like you say an excellent build quality. This finish also ties in with other furniture I have.

    If I was a little bit further down the line with the setting-up of my business I would have had these, alas the timing isn't quite right. Good luck with the sale, I can't imagine they'll be around for long
