Potential bargain alert: IMF TLS 80 mkII speakers

Discussion in 'Interesting eBay auctions' started by ToTo Man, May 15, 2020.

    These TLS 80 mk2's look to be in very tidy condition: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-...ndition-/174284108652?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276

    For those that don't know, the TLS 80 mk2 shares the same driver compliment as the flagship RSPM mk4 but has a slightly smaller enclosure and a simpler crossover that gives a warmer, more forgiving presentation that is less "studio monitor like". Seriously good speakers for the money with effortless low frequency extension!

    Back when I had a larger listening room I used to regularly alternate between my Celestion Ditton 66 and IMFs as I couldn't make up my mind which I preferred, - both superb sounding loudspeakers IMO...

    EDIT - I've just noticed the starting price has been sneakily increased from £250 to £550, so not quite as much of a potential steal as they might have been. Still very much worth £550 if they're in good working order IMO.

    They need a powerful amp, after owning a pair. Not my cup of tea, but I can see the attraction.

    Link works fine for me.

    Seller is not far from here (15 miles or so) so a PFM taxi and temporary storage could be facilitated:)

    Only worth £550 if all the drivers are working, some of them are very difficult to find the right versions. Needs checking before payment.

    A generous offer from Jim, who may come to regret it after realising the size and weight of these brutes! ;)

    The TLS 80's are actually a manageable one person lift, it's the RSPMs that are the real backbreakers! :D
