    Thanks for flagging up the Tannoy 638 the other week Geoff, really thrilled with the sound. These celestion s are really tempting too but lack of dosh makes it a no no I'm afraid !

    Ah. So you bought those, they're very capable speakers. That's two Brians using 638's now!

    Think his maybe the slightly smaller 637 ?. Yup 100 notes, a great buy really smooth and musical with good scale and weight.

    There's a guy selling a pair of Harbeth who responded to my asking if it would possible to listen to them either before buying, or on pick up, by just saying it wasn't possible "but trust me they work fine"

    Is it really that unreasonable to want to check something is working before handing over £1600?

    I replied wishing him luck but saying I guessed that I wouldn't be buying them, he replied again with "I never thought you would"

    Seems very odd to me!
