Hi

Looking for a used pair of Magnepans 1.7s in good condition...
 

BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

If keen on the 3.6R do send me a mail.

Checked out the Maggie's today. Mint condition :). Very nice 74 years old gentleman. Put down a cheque for 60k as he can deliver near end of the month. He has bought himself the 3.7i which he has in packed condition. So have to wait almost a month to get my hands on.

Thanks buddy. and thanks for the link too. I think the seller misspelled in the ad as Megna Planer so it was quite lucky that you found that ad.
he drives them using Mark Levinsons with kimber cables. It was smooth as butter. way sweeter than the mc1's i have currently.Unfair to compare anyways.
and unless you want thumping bass, these maggies will do just fine without a subwoofer. he was also adamant to know what gear I had before he would discuss selling it.LOL!
Also he seemed hesitant to sell it as he wasn't sure if the 3.7is would make that big a difference.The 1.7's seemed a good fit for the room he had in.

I might put up the MC1's on sale soon.
Thanks again.

Congrats buddy, you will really enjoy the magical sound..:clapping:

The best part is despite the size they are not at all hard to drive or fussy about placement!!

Do let us know when they are up and singing!!
