    I think they are copies of the original design? So a different speaker, not necessarily better or worse

    £1100 !!!!!!! What a joke !!!! I'd try to find a good pair of the original 80's version of the speaker for a decent price.

    Will be interesting to see how many different models they bring out and at what sort of prive level.

    HB2s had a 6.5” Audax bass unit with a rubber surround. It was the HB1’s 8” Vifa unit that suffered from foam rot.

    The new ones will be out later in the year, I believe.

    Seems a fair price given that the cabinets are made from Hidrofugo - a water resistant mdf. It's £245 per 8 x 4 sheet.
