    what would be a fair price for Proac Studio 140 mk1 in VGC? I would like to sell them to my friend. Also would Naim Uniti 2x50W will be capable to run them properly?

    I would have thought £4-500? I had some Studio 125’s which I used with a 202/200 and Quad 99/909 and was a great set up. I would imagine the Uniti would work unless you go really loud, presumably the best thing to do is try it?

    Look at www.hifishark.com, you can see what's on offer worldwide and also see what items have sold for.

    I checked there but the prices are not realistic I guess, starting at 1.200 eur.

    Not sure re prices, but 400-500 seems about right. I sold some mk II ones on eBay last year for £650 - well that was the highest bidder though it could have been more.

    The Naim should drive them easily, within any realistic scales/volumes.

    Is there a big difference between Mk1 and Mk2? quality and price wise?

    I would be surprised if Mk1 Studio 125's would sell for so much - certainly e-bay completed sales is a good guide, checking the sale description for any oddities on the physical condition of the speakers, boxes, delivery, etc. My mint condition 5+ year old ProAc D18's sold for around £800 about 18 months ago but they were Mahogany which is not very popular these days so that could have been a factor. Asking price on e-bay is not a good guide as most sellers seem to be over-ambitious in their expectations. I allow 10% depreciation per annum on new price as a guide to my asking price.

    Typing error above - I meant Studio 140's not 125's

    Just checked, I sold them for £750 inc postage to France in Feb 2013 and bought them for £845 in Jan 2010 inc postage from Sussex, believe new retail they were £1440.
