The Rosenut has always been more popular here,  but I think the Cherry looks great as well.

Black wins all. :P

 

If there were black I would buy them :)

 

Having heard Linn systems a few times, I can understand the attraction to the simplicity. At times I feel my own assortment of components becomes too complicated.

How big a room do you really need for these or the 802D2s? And do you take souls or body parts as trade?

The 800's need a larger room, we've found 802's can work in smaller areas brilliantly.

 

What size is your room?

 

They can be hard to move on!

i had mine is a 6 x 4.5 mtr room and they worked brilliantly

 

had them around 1.7mtr from the back wall to the front of speaker and around 1 mtr from side wall to center of bass driver

slight toe in so tweeters were slightly wider then ear width apart

I do have the same dimensions as John for my room, but cannot get the speakers out as much else I will be sitting in the dining to listen music :)

 

For the price, I cannot believe these are still available, legendary speakers.

People demo systems with them at the Munich Audio Show.

And you don't find cheap crap at that show.

I don't have spare $$ to look at them seriously, I'll just have to battle on with my Ambience until I win lotto!

I'm just curious if something like a 6x4m room would be suitable, as I've been eying them off for about 5 years now, and eventually when I buy a place these will hopefully be joining :)

I remember being gobsmacked by these speakers as a school kid at Tivoli Hi Fi in Glenferrie Rd, in 1979

The Linn gear is all very interesting.

A mate has these B&W's (well, the same ones, not these), amazing speakers that seem to respond well to anything. His, in his room, like monoblocks but some jazz played through his valve amps is also blissful.

GLWTS Jamesy-babe and I hope all is going well for you. You need to find me a good PSA DSD some day soon.

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Wamboin State: New South Wales Payment Method: EFT preferred or PayPal Reason for selling: Not being used, recently upgraded to Spendor Classic 4/5 Adelaide Speakers Custom Passive Monitor Speakers (M602TR)
       
      Can honestly say these speakers  compare very well with other brands @ x2 x3 and x4 times the cost. I know because I did a lot of A/B testing before recently upgrading to SPENDOR Classic 4/5's.
       
      These monitors are super accurate and vocals sound particularly sweet through the ribbon tweeters. There are higher level cross-over components, for superb flat, ultra fast response and the ability to produce every micro detail.
       
      They're fairly efficient (90dB) given the size and I was pairing them with low powered SET's without any issues - they sounded great.
       
      There are some very minor dents and marks on the veneer from moving in an out of small bookshelf space - see pic below for more detail.
       
      Technical Specifications
       
      Blackwood veneer cabinets Custom version with front bass reflex & contoured response to suit valve amp 300h x 200w x 210d 8 ohms 120wrms (180wmax) 90dB (1W/1M) 58Hz - 40,000Hz +/- 3dB
