Thanks very much for all your help I've tried to contact David Ames but with no reply, If only there was a way of letting you hear them?. I live in London very near Marylebone Train station if you are near at weekends but as i said I'm not Shaw if my amp is up to it the amp is a Cambridge audio A1 mk 3 special edition integrated amplifier.
I have a pair of these speakers (not for sale) which I purchased back in 1992 but did not get them for six months due to the company going bust. I can only assume that about 500 pair were sold due to the serial numbers that I have got. They are still used most days and still sound good.
I have got part of the original address from where they came from:
Brinkman ltd, alpha house, Treforest Ind Est, CF37 57G or 6
HI THERE, I HAVE A PAIR FOR SALE SERIAL NO 202&201 I BOUGHT THESE AS UNUSED IN ORIGIONAL PACKAGING .I HAVE NEVER USED THEM BUT HAVE JUST TESTED THEM,THEY ARE IN EXELLENT CONDITION IN THE ORIGIONAL BOXES!! MAKE ME AN OFFER
well, I am still about, and listening to TWO pairs of Brinkmans . Thanks to Trevor for the 1st pair and to a lady from London for the second pair. I really love the sound, the looks and the memories. Most importantly, the missus loves the looks and sound too.I just told her that Damian has a pair for sale, I didnt realise I could mind read so quick and so clearly, ha ha
She has just left the room so, if the price is right, you never know
Spose the next thing Im looking for is a pair of mono valve Quad amps at the right price.
Whoops, she just walked back in and mentioned the bass practice amp that she wants, not to mention a Clavinover or some expensive organ. Oh well, we will she
I ha ve a pair of Brinkman venetien vase style speakers No 417 & 8 bought at the Ideal Home Exibition quite a few year ago. Black with gold on white stands. They are great speakers but unfortunately they are now an insurance write off. What would be the best to replace them with and the cost. Be a great help if anyone out there can tell me. They were always part of the furniture, didn't really look like speakers and were always a talking point.
