    Wow! Are those brass driver surrounds? They and the colour of the wood give it a nautical look. Very nice.

    Great name - the main "Consequence" from bringing them home would be divorce!

    Bloody odd driver array, too, 'specially with the HF drivers low down - wonder how they sounded?

    Yes but they wouldn't fit in your poxy boot would they Dolly?





    Are they upside down on their plinth then? Some nut must have bought them like the idiot who bought my first separates system. He only wanted one speaker despite me attempting in vain to explain the concept of stereo reproduction.

    I guess you like them a lot, I only know this brand from a recent HFC review and the Eminent audio website. It looks like interesting stuff, especially their pre amps with solar power . I see you have an Exposure now, why no Croft anymore?
