Rega RS10s in cherry £2450

    Hi, I am selling pair of flagship Rega RS10 speakers.

    It is useful to know that Rega offer a lifetime warranty against manufacturers defects.
    Sound wise, the RS10s:
    - Have marvellous timbres.
    - They are extremely transparent.
    - Large and very very deep scene. Lots of air.
    - They are fast. Very fast.
    - The bass is surprising : very clean and fast and seems to go very low like my former transmission line shared designed PMC's.
    - Look stunning with the high gloss finish.
    - Can fit close to rear walls and work well in different sizes of rooms.
    - The instruction manual is included but they are not boxed.

    The cabinets are in about 7/10 condition because of my recent move where removal men were a little unsympathetic with them- the pictures show the details. The sound is perfect as are the drivers.

    They are collection only due to weight.
    These are currently for sale on ebay- so if you want to look at pictures search rega rs10 and they will appear. And yes, they are more expensive on ebay- I would rather sell them to someone on here!

    Covid issues
    I am happy for you to come and listen to them, as long as you wear a mask from 29th March (stay at home rule relaxed)!
    I am tested twice a week so am happy to have a lateral flow test before you arrive should you want a demo.

    I would have been VERY upset with the removals people if that had happened to me.

    Sadly I'm going in the opposite direction back to standmounts with my imminent move to a non-soundproofed flat, but would have loved to have tried these in my (mostly) Rega system. Ah well, bad timing! GLWTS

    That’s a shame. I remember hearing these RS10s with the Isis CDP/P9/Atheta/IOS and Osiris amp at dealers when Rega launched them some years back. The best sounding set up I’d heard at that point. Stunning.

    Free bump and GLWTS OP.

    Did the removal company include insurance against damage or did/does your home insurance cover it? I'd be looking into that option, if you can. That's really not good enough!

    I'm kinda tempted, I've still not quite settled on the speaker to fill the void from my Rega XELs... But I suppose the Pandemic Police will send me to the gulag for a 560mile round trip to collect them :(

    The 'stay at home' order ends on the 29th March so this is when I feel more comfortable about demoing them etc as things are getting a bit more relaxed overall.

    The removal men were friends of friends so it was a bit awkward- I was given a couple of hundred quid cash to get a furniture restorer onto them!

    A good specialist restorer would bring them back to showroom condition so why not use the £200 and get them sorted....them keep them

    Even the corner dent? Not sure what can be done by specialists but that would make all the difference.

    A good French polisher will be able to splice in near matching veneer and more or less invisibly repair. It'll never be 100% but it'll make them a 9/10 rather than a 7/10 and as I said keep them

    Thanks, I guess it's worth getting it done..

    Just an example....this guys Oxford but just search on line in your local area.....

    Even if it cost £300......these were like seven grand speakers. Would you sell your car because of a dent or get it repaired?? We tend to look at damage (especially to furniture) and immediately think it's trashed, bit there are genuinely skilled professionals out there for which this is their daily job to bring great pieces back from the dead. There's a local re-upholsterer I've used to recover a couple of chairs. He was telling me that most modern sofas underneath (that is to say the frames, springs, webbing, foam) are really poorly made these days so better to buy say a forty plus year old sofa (with a solid foundation) and re-upholster to your chosen fabric. Typically a three seater might be circa £1200 (plus cost of donor sofa) but you end up with something that will look good and last a lifetime. Bit off topic but you get my drift I hope.
    Maybe start a thread with before and after photos and costs???
