    Is there much difference between manufacturers of these things ?
    I've often wondered at - I think - the Falcon variant going for £1k+ for instance.

    This seems a bargain given that the stands are thrown in as well
    I am a little surprised myself to be honest. These are the 15 ohm variant and sound absolutely wonderful. I have had interest though it has been from folks who want them shipping. I had one guy offer me £500. My reply was in Latin. I had these hooked up to my Prima Luna's and they really are something else. I am selling these for a friend who is selling all of his old kit.

    Having many years ago heard a pair of these I am very surprised these have not gone by now. Would sound great in an average size UK room/lounge 10-12' by 16-18' or smaller and with stands, a bit of a steal at this price IMO.

    I think some clarity over cost of postage within the UK might help.
