    Hi

    I'm due to collect a pair of these at the tail end of the coming week just wondering if their are many reviews from you guys they look superb my dad had talisman 2's a good 12 years ago fond memories of them the ones i'm due to buy have been well looked after and paying above the average at £60 but considering the sale for the Audiomaster's fell through i'm buying these as a birthday present to myself although not really needed i have always wanted to try Ruarks for their musicality...

    Cheers

    Decent sounding speakers Dan. £60 seems a good enough price.

    I had a pair a few years ago and seem to remember them sounding pretty good, only got rid of them to fund a pair of Epos that I hated

    Maplin speaker cable cos I can't hear a difference

    Quality speakers the Ruarks. Not heard the Swordsman though. Or the really big ones, forget the name.

    Should work well together. I quite fancy a pair of Ruarks to play with too.

    I can’t lie. I found them thick-sounding, confused and lacking in detail. One of my least favourites. I didn’t fare much better with Sabres which were only slightly better.

    Lacking in Detail i cant say that about them - Very Clean and revealing and rather nice for Rock Music i found each to their own bud i quite like them.
