We all hate you now Lawrence :D

Yeah I know, I've already been trolled by PM. Not saying by who though :D

In all seriousness these should transform my system and end the treadmill of regular speaker changing I've been on, I'm very grateful to Mike and Chris for the opportunity.

These were an £8K pair of speakers, when I bought them, new, in 2004 from The Audioconsultants!

The build quality is amazing, especially the birch veneer waveguide for the tweeter, which Amphion changed to moulded plastic for the MKII Krypton. A slab of granite is inset to one side of the lower half of each cabinet to counter the 12" side firing woofer. They weigh 85Kg a piece and I recommend Finite Elemente Cerabase or Cerapuc footers instead of adjustable spikes on the outriggers. Better still, would be a quartet of Stillpoints Ultra 5's each side - a snip at £4K! ;-)

Lawrence got himself a serious bargain and his only real choice is ............... woofers firing in, or out!

I doubt it Lawrence, it was only a month ago that you said you were tweaking your system round your new Jas speakers, they were that good. :D

That post deserves a vote up, like and laugh all in one. Jas speakers have never had so much critical acclaim :D and from such a deserning listener :)

To be fair, if these hadn't come along I'd be sticking with the Jas for the long haul but I couldn't have ignored this opportunity to upgrade.

Lets hope it's not just sideways :)

I'd be interested in these, if you would accept £450 and could meet up half way for delivery.

Thanks,

Mike

Congratulations Lawrence
