ARC 101 Speakers - Excellent - Free Pick Up
I am now selling my trusty ARC 101 speakers ... they don't make 'em like this anymore!
ARC stands for Audio Reproduction Company and these speakers are very well made ... thick chipboard construction, internal bracing and real wooden veneer. They are British made and were designed by Russ Andrews.
I have owned them from new and bought them in 1980. They have been well looked after and are in perfect working order. I have not used them for years now, hence the sale.
All parts are original except for the tweeters, both of which were replaced by my Hi Fi specialist. The first was replaced with a genuine ARC tweeter in about 1983 but the second had to be replaced with an equivalent tweeter in 1991 as genuine ARC tweeters were unavailable. Personally, I can't tell the difference but a new owner may wish to replace both tweeters again to ensure they are exactly the same.
The condition of the cabinets can be seen quite clearly in the photos. One of the cabinets has quite a large scratch on one of its sides but otherwise they are in excellent condition with just the odd mark here and there. The varnish is still glossy and even the bottoms of the cabinets are in excellent condition as they have been resting on soft padding.
I have discarded the original foam grills as they have perished, but they can easily be replaced with an equivalent. Personally, I have always used them without the foam grills.
The crossovers are removable units which are plugged into the back of the speakers via seperate high frequency and mid/low frequency input sockets. Some of the external plastic is missing from one of these sockets but this is just cosmetic.
The cables are 12 ft in length and are plugged into the crossover units. The cables are original and come with 4 mm banana connectors.
These speakers are heavy and so the postage is expensive, however pick up can be arranged ... I am near J5 of the M5.
I also have other vintage Hi Fi seperates for sale ... please check out my other auctions.
