Item specifics

These speakers are incredibly rare pieces of functional artwork by Dadara in collaboration with Blueroom Loudspeakers from the mid nineties, there were only ever 100 pairs made and according to Robert Trunz  ( Blueroom Owner ) approx half of these were destroyed in a warehouse fire in Amsterdam leaving approx only 50 pairs worldwide so this is a very rare chance to purchase.

This particular pair have just been finished , I obtained the original cabinets from Dave Roberts who was one of the original Blueroom founders and designer of the Housepods and then brought the original driver units from B&W ( They manufactured the drive units and Blueroom were a subsidiary of them ) I also then purchased the original speaker cable ( Umbilical corsds ! ) from Van Den Hul and made them up. The only non original part of this pair which I could not source from the original manufacturer are the birth plates on the bottom of the speakers so using an original one as a template had some made with the word 'Proto' in place of the serial number. These are aluminium discs which are machine engraved and are identical to the originals.

The cabinets were numbered  from 1 - 200 ( 100 pairs ) originally so the numbers inside the cabinets never related to the numbers on the birthplates of any of the production speakers hence why I could not assign a serial number.

I had the bodies sprayed in the original red colour ( I obtained the original paint code from B&W which is a Porsche guards red ) at a place called HQ Lacquer in Surrey who do all the high end work for Meridian, Kef and Linn and as such the paint finish is perfect, better than any production Blueroom speakers I have ever owned.

I have the original sticker and reprinted presentation booklets which I will include in the sale.

This is a very rare opportunity to obtain a mint condition pair of these speakers, the tweeters are no longer available so to have a brand new pair in the speakers gives you peace of mind that your investment is well protected. The value of these will only ever rise being Dadara Artwork.

I have just listed a general price for international shipping but would much prefer to meet to deliver these even if it means meeting half way in mainland Europe, if postage is absolutely necessary we can discuss this but I would need to obtain suitable packing and insurance.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
