Rare Vintage B&W DM3000 Full Tower Speaker System


Here I am sellimg a pair of Rare Vintage B&W DM3000 Full Tower Speaker System in excellent working condition. These are from the 90's era and very rare to find. I was lucky to get hold of these approximately one year back from Forum memeber in Delhi. I have used these in my HT system and it performed excellent. I am selling it as I need to recover some space in my HT and also need some funds. There are few DIY speaker projects that are in my mind.

Asking Price - Rs. 22,000 Plus actual Shipping (Firm). Local Pickup in Delhi is encouraged. I can deliver free in the NCR. Auditions welcome.

Age - 1 & 1/2 Years with me. (I think 15-20 Years, Not Sure)

Condition - 7/10

Ownership History - Bought used from forum member approximately 1.5 years back.

Retail Price - At the launch time in 1985 US $2300
Current Ongoing Price for Used pair of DM3000 - US $600 (Very rare of find)

I Paid INR 25,000 for this used pair and spent another 5000 to get them rs polished and painted. (See Pictures below)

Google for the B&W DM3000 and you will read lot of good stuff about these. These are the top of the line B&W speakers of their time.

Lovely Pair of B&Ws there Vinay. I can vouch for the SQ of the Vintage DM series since I own a pair of Vintage DM610s. If you can ship to Bangalore, I would like to buy them.

I can ship to bangalore, but packing and shipping costs you will have to take care. These speakers are heavy.

Buddy you know the value, I think you are earning only to buy these kind of stuffs. Good interest Santhosh and your classifieds subscription is flushing your wallet.

Thanks to all who sent PMs, for showing interest in these B&W speakers.
Speakers are reserved for Santosh as he was the first one to make offer.
I will close the thread once the transaction is completed.

Vinay Arora,

I appreciate your open indication about the first come first basis to grab this vintage treasure and moreover it is going to the right hands who knows the value. Congrats Santhosh.

Now the pain of moving the same to Banglore starts and end up with hearing pleasure
