    Well, they will be different to the Rogers. If you like them like might never be the same again...

    Cheap price, I think I paid that for the pair I had.

    I wasn't a fan, and tbh didn't get them at all! I had some Rogers at the time IIRC. I sold them for triple what I paid!
    I spent all my money on booze, drugs, and women, the rest I squandered

    Yeah total bargain! You did well there. Usually go for around 100 - 150 odd, depending on condition. Just be careful, they're addictive...

    Unbelievable sound from such slim boxes. 40? Did you ask for a five year warranty?
    Who says there aren't silly bargains about. Great speaker.
    Go placidly amid the noise and the haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    Avoid loud and aggressive persons. They are vexations to the spirit.

    I've got mine playing in the kitchen through a mini t amp, they are great

    They really draw you in, great music players!!
    Light travels faster than sound, which is why some people appear bright until they speak.

    minstrels

    One of the most memorable musical events I had in my house involved these speakers. Many years ago. Exposure CDP/XX1/XV111 monos /minstrels/Rel storm sub.
    I'll have to do this again. I recall it being laughably good.

    I was completely bowled over, as were my visitors. Ive still got this set up , here and there. The Royds are currently in the bedroom with a Denon tuner and a Pioneer A400. These also sound superb.

    Fantastic wee jems and an absolute bargain at 40.

    Enjoy !
