    Thanks for the heads up. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I’ve never hear of Living voice before today!
    Sadly, irrespective of price, condition, SQ or anything else, they’re not for me as they’re in the one ‘colour’ which my lounge can’t take.
    This is the second time today that there’s been a chance of a quality speaker, only to find it’s in the Rosewood colour. I was offered a pair of Talisman IIs on another forum earlier this afternoon.
    I’m sure if I persevere something will come up - not that I actually need anything more - given that I currently own 2 pairs.

    I run a pair of 33s through either a vintage Sony or Trio receiver and love em., Both are 35/49wpc and my room is about 3.5m square and they fill it nicely with a lovely clean sound, then again the heaviest rock I would listen to would be Dire Straits or maybe some Hendrix.

    Well, hopefully below there should be some photos. I will apologise in advance, though. I've never posted any images on the forum before today and if there is an image size restriction, then I may have fallen foul of it.

    Sadly, with a recent reformatting of a hard drive and re installation of Windows, I haven't yet got round to re-installing Lightroom, so don't know how to reduce image size in W10.

    The final photo shows some minor damage to one of the cabinets. It's nothing major and looks much worse in the photo than in real life! I'm going to get hold of a 5mm veneer strip from somewhere and try to repair it unless anyone has a better idea.

    Update - after uploading the photos, the order seems to have changed. So the photo showing cabinet damage may not be last. Photos of both speakers are included, though and you'll also see one of my Castle Severn 2s in the background.
    Well I'll be......

    I have the same Ercol Hifi cabinet in my attic, Windsor range from mid 90s iirc.

    I’m guessing you already know just how much these fetch at auction?
    That said, mine is going nowhere.
    Thanks for replying.
