I'm selling a pair of Fostex NX-5A monitors, bought from new they are 12 months old and in mint condition with original boxes, £325 ono. Based in Cheltenham in the South West but I can post via courier if required.

I've copied the spec info from the Fostex website:

Listen to a pair of powered Fostex NX Series reference monitors and you’ll discover a superb natural sound with little colouration, deep tight lows and crystal clear highs, precise stereo imaging and an almost complete lack of distortion - even at high sound pressure levels.

Full of the latest in speaker technology and designed from the ground up for critical listening in both professional and project studios, broadcast and editing suites, or any other recording facility where a precise, transparent, professional sound is essential, the NX Series set new standards in sonic accuracy and packaging.

Precision monitoring and audio performance of this standard has never been so affordable.

Created to offer a professional nearfield monitoring solution in tight spaces, the compact NX-5A excels in just about every department. The sound is full of clarity and audio accuracy, the stereo imaging is sharp and consistent and the level of sonic detail is incredible from a monitor so small.

The engineering is superb with an internal wall design which eliminates standing waves, precision aluminium frames minimizing unwanted vibrations and a woofer which features a UDR tangential driver edge to eliminate unwanted resonances. - It all adds up.

Low Frequency Unit
5" (130mm) with HR (Hyper Radial) diaphragm which utilises the latest diaphragm ‘Radial Papermaking Technology’ for natural and smooth sound reproduction
UDR (Up/Down Roll) Tangential driver edge eliminates the unwanted resonance
Wide-range 20mm hard dome tweeter
With magnesium diaphragm to eliminate sharp-edges sound characteristics
Highly rigid cast aluminum frames for both LF and HF units which minimizes unwanted vibrations and resonances
Magnetically shielded drivers allow for safe placement close to a video monitor
Time-aligned front baffle enclosure design with the HF driver recessed for a precise and pure sound
Dedicated 60W (LF) + 40W (HF) bi-amplifier eliminates electric interference between the drivers
Overall output level control
Dedicated tweeter level control (±3dB) cut/boost
LO EQ control: +2dB / 0dB / -2dB selectable for tailoring performance to the listening room
