I may regret doing this but I have reached a point in my life where I have competing priorities and those priorities out rank high dollar stereo equipment. I'm getting married and moving for the second time in 6 months, and then eventually in with my future wife. Pictures of the Fcals and Rhumba are from a year ago when I last had them setup and was able to take pictures. Rest assured they are still all in like new condition. I take very good care of my stuff and have sold lots of stuff here. Local pickup is in the Newport Rhode, RI area although I am willing to drive a few hours on a weekend to meet up. Offers can be discussed via PM but I amunlikely to budge a ton and I am not open to trades. Thanks for the interest!

Backert Labs Rhumba 1.1 - I bought this new directly from Andy at Backert a year ago. It just went back for a 300 dollar power supply/gain stage mod that brings it up to par with the Rhumba 1.3 in those aspects. This is a well known and well regarded unit that i love to death. It comes with factory remote, power cord, packaging and will come with NOS Mullard "shield logo" 12AU7s with about 100 hours on them. The tubes were $140 from Brent JesseI would estimate the pre has 120 hours or so on it. It is in absolute pristine shape all around 9.9999/10 mechanically and cosmetically. Looking to get $1800 net after shipping and pp fees (friends and family is always an option!)

Focal Aria 926 - I bought these brand new from Worldwide stereo in PA about a year ago, same time as the Rhumba. Ditto on condition as the Rhumba. They are like new and you will be hard pressed to even find a fingerprint on them. These are the piano black finish that focal never discounts. They are packaged in their original packing materials, just as they came from factory. Asking $1750 for these. I will ship at buyers expense although local pickup is probably the better option as shipping may be cost prohibitive.

Mccormack DNA 125 modded by Bob Backert - Bought this from victor last month, and I have not personally used it. Same condition he sold it to me in this thread, I have taken it out of the box and inspected, it is in fantastic shape! No power cord included. I'll pass along the $900 dollar price I paid for it. Pics from victor are in this thread

    My, My, My what a nice system you are disassembling there. I like the Focal flax cones a lot. We all have competing priorities and many have been through this. I know I have, with a much lesser system than yours. I have empathy for you...hopefully someday the opportunity will come around again for us all.

    Good luck!

    It is a fantastic system, and long story short is before I left my house where it was all set up, I found myself not liking to relegate myself to my listening room to listen to music. So I am replacing all of this with the LS50w’s which should give me 90 percent of what I had while allowing me to set it up in the living room and enabling to listen to music while just hanging out in the living room.

    So I believe I think I am going to be happier with my system arrangement in the end

    MAN! I thought it was just me. The Mrs, just does not understand. I don't have a dedicated room but my family room / TV is the only current system. I have a few moves I want to make with that system then I'll be done with it for awhile.

    For my living room, The LS50W and sub are what I plan to put in that space and I will pretty much be done for a long time I hope. Just waiting for the Mrs. to finish school and find that midlife career change job. The countdown has begun.... until then I'll go listen to them again at AXPONA. LOL!

    They are a damn nice sounding set of speakers. Could of been an end game speaker for me. I should hold onto them but I cant justify for when I probably won’t be able to use them for at least the next 3 years or so. They need to go to someone who can enjoy them
