I'm not a fan of room correction but also the room is very small for these speakers really overkill,  no eq will fix this

I'd look at eq like Dirac Live before selling these if in-room performance is the issue...

what's the size of the room?

It's basically a bedroom but it's a woodin cabin with a cork floorboard and a low ceiling. When sell my Sonus Faber I will look at their standmounts and others that have demo pairs that I can try at home

They said I'd lose too much trading back in but if I'd gone elsewhere I'd probably would have been much better off.  Ironically the dealer I wanted to go thru stopped selling Sonus Faber, They demoed a bunch of speakers from dynaudio to pmc and paradigm  persona but when I heard the Sonus Faber at the other dealer I new straight away they were fore but I forgot about room acoustics

That's a shame, usually dealers selling that level of product will try and help out and build relationships with their customers knowing they'll come back in the future. 

 

They look like beautiful speakers, SF build quality is exceptional. Are you hoping to get the stand mount version instead? 

 

Anyway, I hope it all works out for you.

I also thought the dealer might have been willing to support you. I wonder if it is worth seeing if anyone here has something to swap with you that would suit you both?

Yeah if someone here wants them I'll give them a good deal and get Sonus Faber standmounts,  maybe the amati tradition, I've had lots of nice comments about the speakers but no purchase enquiries, am I in the right forum??

I think the 22k speaker quick sale forum has been shut down unfortunately.. ;) 

 

Lovely speakers. I’m sure they’ll sell eventually.

True had the same problem before.  Big floor stander speakers are not suited for small room.  It needs some space to breath.   The speakers are so close to the back wall as I can see from the photo.  Maybe try moving it forward and dont toe in if it is too clear or toe it in if you want more clarify.  I had  the Sonus Faber Domus Grand Piano.   GLWTS

Just hold on to them. You wont be satisfied with standmounts. I have the same problem with my 802. I took them 600mm out of the wall, spreading them as wide as possible. I listen at low volume @ 25% of my system capacity. And I now work a lot harder to change the house. It gives you motivation.

I recommend talking to Geof from Hey Now Hifi if you're ever in the market for high end speakers. He can practically source anything for you. His service is second to none and his pricing is incredibly very sharp!!

Ha ha, I had lots of calls from  gumtree but they were either scammers or low ballers, eBay takes 10 percent hopefully I'll get a buyer

Could you list on Gumtree first, then click on the link that allows you to 'post to eBay' with no fees (limit of 2 per month)? This might help with fees.

      Item Condition: Immaculate Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Richmond State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal Friends, Cash Reason for selling: Upgrade Further information: Up for sale is my McIntosh C2200 tube preamplifier. This unit presents in immaculate condition as per pictures below with only minor handling marks on the casework. 
       
      When released in 2003 this was Mcintosh's first tube preamplifier released in nearly 30 years. It was designed by Sidney Corderman who designed much of their gear in the 60's and is a sought after unit having a higher compliment of tubes than current offerings from McIntosh. A recent video review by a Canadian dealer compares this favourably to McIntosh's latest C2700 offering noting the C2200 has a more 'tube like sound' than the newer units which are hybrid design. This unit was available in Mcintosh's catalogue for about 8 years.
       
      This unit has been fitted with a full complement of Gold Lion gold pin reissue 12AX7 and 12AT7 in both the phono stage (750 hours use fitted 12 months ago) and line stage (300 hours use fitted 4 months ago). These take the sound of the unit to a whole new level compared to the standard Mcintosh tubes issued in the 2000's. This unit has had an LED lamp kit fitted to replace the incandescent bulbs as well as new genuine light boxes and filters behind the VU meters. It also includes an HR093 remote control which is in new condition and much more economic than the factory remote.

      This unit is versatile with 4 balanced inputs, 7 unbalanced inputs including a brilliant MM Phono stage and 3 sets of outputs (balanced and unbalanced) as well as programmable power trigger controls for each. It has many other features such as a 214 step digital volume control with optical encoder for very precise volume control and level matching between channels, input reassignment, tone override function per input, mono/stereo selector, tape monitor loop for recording to analog medium as well as home theatre bypass, not to mention those beautiful blue VU meters. Signal to noise ratio is stellar with no background hiss from either the line or phono stage.
       
      I have been using this with my McIntosh MC275 for a 18 months and really enjoy its liquid midrange and great detail at either end of the spectrum.
       
      A review of this unit can be found here; https://www.stereophile.com/tubepreamps/577/index.html and here for the recent if not somewhat lengthy review Audio Excellence Mcintosh C2200
       
      Audition available. Pickup from Richmond, Melbourne. I don't have a box for this unit and therefore reluctant to post unless you wish to make your own arrangements.
       
      You can see a video of my the unit in action here filmed early Jan 2021: 
       
      As well as a demo of the phono stage running through a SUT (excuse average quality video on this one).

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Coburg State: VIC Payment Method: Cash, EFT, PayPal Reason for selling: Not required Further information:
       
      Cerious Technologies Liquid Ceramic Composite RCA

       
      I bought these as backup because they so rarely come up for sale. I did try this pair briefly, but changed my setup and they are no longer long enough. The reason for the cheap price is that they have been repaired. The previous owner had one of the rca’s re-soldered and as a result that a new white sleeve was put in place without the original logo. (See 3rd photo)
       
      Here’s a link to the previous ad. 
       
      Thanks for looking
