  1. These are an utter bargain. Great sound and beautifully made. These would be from about 1990/91 and they look like new.
  2. That looks like a good plan UM, once this threatment is in place you will be in audio nirvana. Once you listen for the first time in a professionally treated room its then that you realise you have been doing it wrong all along. If everyone could hear the difference everyone would want it. I look forward to more pics once the room is done and to see what you decide to do with the speakers. You are probably used to the mad max looks by now and see little need to do anything? I think thats where I would end up. Cheers
  3. Endgame for me is finding your ultimate, final, last, definitive destination in whatever hobby or interest motivates you enough to seek it. I have a thread running on SNA about my endgame speakers that may even have inspired this thread. I dont think there is much more to it than that.
  4. Ha ha well done Rodders, I just snagged a copy off Discogs earlier this week after it had been on my wishlist for a good few years. I landed a copy of Soundgardens legendary Superunknown '320' pressing a few ago doing exactly as you did. In fact I found two willing sellers and bought both, one was sealed and the seller offered to open it and check the condition before selling it to me. When he did there was two C/D records, so I guess I now own 1.5 copies 😁
  5. I think it would be fine provided you commited to full room treatment. I would much rather 7x4m and treatment than 8x6 and no treatment. A smaller room will sound much larger/spacious if its treated.
  6. Cornwall last weekend Looe We stayed in the gorgeous old smugglers village of Polperro
  7. Fantastic to see Micheal, these should be your last speakers! There is nowhere to go after the Symphony so you have plenty of time to mess around with the aesthetics. You could leave them as is and go the mad max look and let the performance do the talking. Once the room treatment is in you will think you have a new pair of speakers all over again, I look forward to reading your comments once you have experienced the dramatic improvement it brings. You have ended up with the first pair, you beat me 😝 Cheers
  8. These seem like an absolute bargain. Perhaps the brand name has faded away so nobody really knows how much of a player Sonique were at one time. DNA going back to Duntech too I believe.
  9. Wow this is a fantastic speaker project. I would love to hear them, I have a soft spot for Morel drivers. AMazed these havent been snapped up tbh.
  10. I am really loving it. No standout tracks except for invincible. At 8 mins it goes to a whole new level of awesomeness
  11. Many people fail to appreciate the sharp difference in value based on condition, this is apparent in many record stores overpricing used vinyl from sought after artists in tatty condition. If they were heavily scratched $60ea would have been possibly too much especially from a private seller at a garage sale. I am chasing down the Albert first pressing records I dont have from AC/DC's Bon days, the price variance on these can be 5-10 fold depending on condition. Near Mint are rare and valuable, and probably better than money in the bank with the bonus that they sound fantastic.
  12. There was sombody who posted in this thread quite early on who found two on the same day! Not seen any other reports since, they must have been made in pretty small numbers for you to have not stumbled onto one in all your CD searching Geoff. Edit: and I see Craig found one in the post at the top of this page
