What does it matter if they are not a "pair" isn't this how Americas buy speakers by the single and not in pairs like we do.

because these are sold as a pair. and if wanting to take a unmatched hit in resale you'd accept an unmatched pair :)

Fair enough, better keep on eye on Convoy's factory second/refurb site, a cheap unmatched pair of B&W 805's should pop up.

You can come over and demo them if you like before they hit the 2nd hand market. I will ask the Convoy rep next week what will happen to them.

I tell ya what, of anyone has the 805D2's and is thinking of going for the D3's, just do it, they are well by far a better speaker. 

 

The D2's are a mess compared to the control and clarity of the 3's. 

 

They love being pushed. So much composure.

Giddy up, I assume he'll be picking up the others?

Yes and unboxing mine, obviously to ensure there's no further problems.

Yes, Convoy were trying to push the Unmatched pair onto me, thankfully I had the support of Geoff from Tivoli Hifi who told them directly no.

@david256 did you open the envelope?

No, I didn't, I haven't even opened the accessories box yet. 

 

All the excitement of the unboxing was lost after the stuff around.

 

Loving the speakers though. :)
