    My buyer has been back in contact, hopefully still on track so bumping. A few ideas: Jamo concert 11, kef reference model 1-4, Epos ES22, Celestion A2, Monitor Audio R952MD/1200 to name but a few I've liked.

    Maybe the old response models are better value? I wouldn't mind trying some bigger Tannoys!

    the studio models seem very popular , well worth a try if you are on a budget

    I have a pair of Avalon NP Evolution 2.0 floor standers in real Cherry veneer that aren't being used and really need a new home, for around 600. Lovely, musical things, designed to be used with grilles on, that stand less than 1m tall, yet with twin 6" bass units have a decent amount of bass extension. They still have their double shipping boxes. Not in mint cosmetic condition, since Avalon used lacquer that does chip easily at the edges (but nothing ugly), and there are some scratches at the bottom of one speaker that I will get seen to by a cabinet maker to render them invisible.

    They look like these:

    Thanks Hugo, something to think about, I'd like to try that ceramic tweeter, but I've always wanted to try the higher range ones with the sloping baffles as they seem to go very cheap compared to RRP.

    Indeed, like most stuff that originally retailed at lofty prices. I think Avalon surprised themselves with the NP series, which were aimed at the home cinema market, but turned out to be good enough to threaten their 'proper' HiFi stuff, which I think is why they were dropped and the 7k Idea came in to fill the gap left by the NP 2.0. I'm now going to drag them down from storage upstairs and have a listen against the KEF LS50s (and indeed the Tannoy Berkeleys).

    Ok if you send me some pics of the marks please I can have a think. Will PM my email.

    Now if you were selling the Berkeleys...

    Emergency!! My speakers should be gone by 5pm, so I'll consider a cheap short term pair to keep me going if I can move them on quickly without loss when needed. Condition less important. Loaner would be great too, I'd be eternally grateful!

    Lawrence, if it is a very cheap short term you would be happy with why not go for something less than a pony? There is a guy near you trying to sell his AE120s which may fit the bill. Last unsold at 120 (on Gumtree, higher on e****) and he is happy to deliver within a short distance. But clearly the SQ will be nowhere near what you are used to.
