Good evening all, i was looking around and found some interesting speakers but not available locally e.g.  Ryan Speakers and Salk Signature Sound  - anyone who has experience importing speakers especially from the US, is it worth it ?  I did research on import duties , used an online calculator and it seems not a bad idea looking at the figures....but not sure how easy or hard the process is ....

Not sure know would be the right time to be importing speaker from the USA with the slowness of the world wide post/shipping ? 

 

The other thing to consider is aftersales service and warranty

Keep an eye and ear out for some Audio Physic.

 

Maybe touch base with 3dl3, he was maybe thinking of selling some.

 

 

Sorry, the speakers I wanted to trade them in for got sold. Thanks for the shout out Pops110 :)

These.

Narrow footprint makes them fit in small rooms too, but you'd be getting a massive sound with them, but you'd have to retire your sub as these will give you better bass than it.

These look great and the added sub is a bonus ,  read a couple of reviews , was getting keen until I saw that they are made in China ,  would need some convincing to part with 18K . Have you heard them yourself mate . ?

No, I've heard ones either side of this model - the reference, the one and the three (all older models as well). Given how good these were, I'm reasonably confident the 2 would be great as well. Think of the Chinese production as what's making them a bargain in hi-fi compared to other brands.

 

Where did you get 18k? The one I linked was the model 2+ (for the opening poster). 18k gets you the reference model and that is most definitely a fantastic sounding speaker which I have heard in its older form.

I have a pair of Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Concert Grand Symphony Editions (Piano Black) for sale in the Classifieds at the moment. Unlike you I have gone back to StandMounts. 

Cheers

 Hi Con,  

 

Yes I was looking at wrong model ,  will check these out in my ongoing look for  a new speaker for my new room.

found few choices:

Sonus Faber Sonetto V -  beautiful speaker - haven't heard any Sonus Faber speakers so i am not familiar with their sound signature

 

Dynaudio Contour 60 - i like my Contour S1.4 , maybe this is safe choice :)

 

 

 

Also a big recommendation for Sonus Faber speakers.

I think Carlton audio still have a second hand pair in there for around $3500??

I saw a picture recently but they’ve taken them off their website (they have new Sonus faber on there). 
I remember Auditioning that very pair, amazing a very powerful. 
Too expensive for me back then.
whoever gets them for $3k is a thief.
