Extra Info: 

 

I bought these in April 2019 , intrigued by the design and the reviews (below) and also through much discussion with Andy at Audiofix over their suitability in my room. in short they work fine in my room and with their down firing port , makes for a lot of versatility in room positioning.  Ultimately I enjoyed their sound enough to sell my Dynaudio confidence 5. 
 

but as always in this great game, a recent read up and current home demo of Revel F208 have made me decide to purchase them as hopefully an “ end game” speaker. Well that’s the plan 😎

 

these present as new , out of the boxes and set up -   No marks at all. So like new with a discount price.
 

sounds wise, I play a wide variety of music through them and found them to be detailed and balanced, never becoming over bright  the high and mids in particular are impressive. Female vocals in particular sound very nice. The bass is fast and well defined - certainly not plodding.  These could be an ideal speakers for someone liking the Proac, Spendor or Sonus Fabre sound. 
 

Build quality is spot on, weight in at 35kg each, with 25mm cabinets made in Italy and the heavy and solid plinths.  At a pinch they do look a bit like mid period Sonus  Faber, but certainly they look even more impressive in the flesh. With their design and slimline dimensions, could be a alternative to a similar priced standmount? 
 

I have the boxes (3) and packaging so transport/courier isn’t an issue. Happy demo at home to interested parties

 

boxes are 115cm long x 33cm wide and 45cm deep weight would be about 40 kgs per box.

 

interesting fact - Falcon are distributed the USA by Mofi electronics. 

 

Cheers dave

Falcon Acoustics is of course renowned for their BBC LS3/5a's as the only current iteration that actually employs the same KEF drive units as the originals.
I would love to audition these.

 

And your Studio 30's of course! Spec wise, they would appear to be easy to drive. 

 

Not sure if you've actually achieved an upgrade with the Revels though that would depend on your front end, so I'd be interested in your thoughts of how they compare. Similar size and configuration to the F208's but I imagine they would sound very different?

The f208 are bigger than the studio 30 in cabinet size and drivers. Tho they weigh roughly the same 35 vs36 kg. Consequently the f208 have more of the same , if you like. 

 

I would imagine the revel 206 are more similar to the studio 30 in sound.

I'm sure the F208's have a big soundstage too.

 

I should mention that I've previously owned Revels as well (the original Gems and Studios) and both were magnificent.

 

Judging from what I've read, I expect the Falcons are worthy transducers too.

 

They are too big for me, I'm afraid. In case you hadn't worked out, I'm after the LS3/5a's instead!

 

GLWTS - it's a good price considering they are virtually new.

From my cold, dead fingers, that's all I can say to that :D

       Hey Stereo peeps, 
       
      Selling my HD595s as I'm upgrading to HD650. I have owned 2 pairs for about 10 years, keeping one pair as I am so used to them. 
       
      I'm the original owner, bought the pair I'm selling in the US, from memory, while living there. 
       
      Headphones are in very good condition, EXCEPT for a crack on one side of the plastic. Freaked me out when it happened, circa 2011 or so, but Googled and apparently it was a common issue. It happened in both pairs, the one I'm keeping has it on both sides. The cracks haven't changed at all in either pair in a decade.
       
      Otherwise, they're in immaculate condition. Including a set of new genuine earpads for anyone who buys at my asking price+shipping, and flexible otherwise. 
       
      Comes with headphone only, no box, 3.5mm adapter or anything else other than potentially the earpads. 
       
      If the photos don't show enough please ask.

      AudioQuest Digital Coax cables are designed to minimise distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. For many applications, the speed of digital communication is important. For Digital Coax audio “speed” is critical not because of how-much how-fast, but because time relationships within a digital stream are critical to the reconstruction of the analog waveform that brings information, music and joy to our ears. Time-based damage (jitter) to this information within the data package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D, harsh and foggy instead of smooth and clear.
