    Hmm, wonder what these little things will be like? Just bought a pair of Goodmans Maxim 2 speakers off ebay to play with. They were cheap and look mint in the photos. I know some members are rather fond of these, never heard any myself. They should be good for the second system.

    I don't know about the Maxim 2 speakers, but the original Goodman Maxims are not well regarded amongst audio enthusiasts.

    Interestingly the BBC assessed the Maxim as an alternative to the LS3/5.

    Yes, I know Barry. I had several pairs and thought they were pretty useless.

    The Maxim 2 is an entirely different speaker. They were well liked by Jerry at the Kegworth shindig a couple of years ago and (Adam) Beobloke, who's opinon I respect has praised them, so I thought I'd try them.

    I'm looking forward to hearing them.

    The bass/mids are of a series used by KEF, Monitor Audio and Heybrook amongst others by the look of them, so probably not bad. The tweeters are fairly ubiquitous, a type sold by Audax and other OEM providers.

    Used to have a pair of original 1960s Maxims.

    I'd rather have a 60 Bluetooth speaker over the old Maxim. Sounds a million times better too!
