    Sonneteer Alabaster 55watts , I haven't tried them with anything else and unlikely to in the foreseeable future as its so right . The toe-in on the speakers is quite severe , the manual recommends so you cannot see either side of the speaker from the listening position , mine are 7.5 feet apart with my seat being the same distance . I took a chance with the ProAcs , couldn't really lose at the price , they retailed at £1049 and their replacements the SM100 are about £1800 I think. The ones you saw in the charity shop went very cheap , if they had of done their research perhaps they were ProAc Tabletes ?

    Might be a coincidence, but I've just spotted a pair of Proac Studio 115 on Ebay, sold by British Heart Foundation Leeds. Starting price £165.

    Someone at the shop probably decided they would get more in auction.

    And it is a charity shops responsibility, reason to be to make money to support the charity and its work. I do sometimes see things overpriced but being honest that would still be a reasonable price.

    Makes sense, who wanders around charity shops looking for high end speakers? Other than me, of course

    Well that 3 of us then, although it seems to be just two names. Noticed that charity shops are raising prices on everything from cds up.
    Please take good care of your S2k keep it by your side for long and enjoy it from the bottom of your heart and share the quality and legacy of the S2k with many friends so that the legend of the S2k will continue for long. Shigeru Uehara Designer Honda S2000.
