I honestly don’t have one ..I’ve vinyl that I have purchased spanning 6 decades ..There’s enough to listen to for another 6 .. If you think an album is going to be memorable then buy it for that reason alone ..not for rarity or price nor hearsay .. You may be disappointed
The Karousel bearing has made a significant improvement to the LP12, it certainly did to mine.
If you are not going to get into debt then I'd say go for it, you're only here once. Think of all the fun you'll have 😂
These are micro utopia be speakers. The seller had the boxes and serial numbers are on the boxes. From pictures of other micro,s on the net, the serial numbers seem to be attached via stickers just above the binding posts. The seller has told me in his opinion there has never been any sticker attached, no sticky residue. Speakers have been upgraded with new caps by Coherent, but would not expect them to remove serial numbers.
If these are pre-production models then they almost certainly wouldn't have gone on sale as they carry the badge but are not the full package. Likely they are units that walked out of the factory one day when backs were turned. The chance of Focal offering support for items stolen from them would be (I suggest) minimal, they might offer legal assistance with getting the goods returned however...
