    New speakers in place. Not to big for the room and sound sublime, could these be the ones...?

    BKS 128 supreme ribbon hybrid, I had the 107s before and they sounded superb in a mini monitor kind of way, these sound like a reasonably sized 2 way floorstander but far more refined with the long ribbon. The totally inert granite sided cabinet seems to help get more bass out of the 6.5" cone than you would expect. So this one is the complete package compared to the 107. Very happy.

    They unfortunately fell through as they were too far away, wish I could have worked something out as I reckon they were pretty good.

    I wouldn't call it a people carrier. With 2 kids in the back you can't lower the seats which restricts speaker choice to standmounts and tiny floorstanders.

    Lovely looking speakers with great reviews. How did you manage to get them to your place? They are 45kg each!

    Love to hear them sometime if I may? When are you due to sell them on? End of the month?

    Still think this journey you are on Lawrence ends with you having a pair of MBLs. Then you can listen to the music at last.
