    Hi all

    I'm (almost) able to buy me a pair of 2nd hand ns10's
    The only problem is: I have absolutely no money at all.... I'm want good reference speakers, so...
    My question: what's the current price on 2nd hand NS10's?? What should I look out for when checking them out?

    Right now 300 to 800 is the 2nd hand price.

    See if you can get the "old ones" with the dome shaped tweeter grills.

    They had a thicker woofer cone (usually cigarette stained tan) and the screen for the tweeter was dome shaped instead of "squared off"

    The post 93 models are good ones but suffer from a rise at 1.5K (the reason tissue paper was used on them) and the woofer cone was less thick causing it to change shape into a "like the pedals of a flower" at high excursion.

    Any NS10 is better than no NS10 at all.

    Look for no holes drilled into the cabinet, look for a cost of around 300 to 400 for a pair and try to find the "old ones" if you can.
