In my opinion these are about the most beautiful speakers you could buy. Made in England they are covered with Yew tree veneer (a price premium on the other veneer options).

I would describe the sound as classic English, slightly laid back but with rich texture in the midrange. Really fun to listen to.

They are a quarter wave base reflex design firing out the bottom plinth which can be adjusted. Small in size they can still fill a reasonable size room with sound.

I upgraded primarily to get a more full range in the base without the need for a sub but they are, nevertheless quite competant in the base region.

There is some damage/marks primarily to the RHS of the right speaker which is shown in one of the photos. The flash brings it out well but it's hardly noticeable in viewing from any distance. In addition there are some fine line, probably shrinkage, cracks on the LHS of each speaker. None of the faults really detract from the visual impact of the speakers but it is reflected in price expectations.

They are a bargain at the reserve.
