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: Used, like new Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Marrickville, Sydney State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on pickup, Paypal/Transfer for shipping Reason for selling: Upgraded Used this DAC/amp for a little over two years and I would still be using it however recently needed another DAC with an optical input.  It's in great condition with not a mark on the body or remote.  The remote has been unused 90% of its life.  Have since lost the box moving house and likely the receipt too, may be able to dig it up and will update the listing if I find it.  Originally retailed ~$900, hard to find a better dac/amp at this price.
       
      Can audition with headphones however it is not hooked up to my speakers at the moment
       
      Comes with power and USB cables

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Crafers State: SA Payment Method: EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Too may speakers Further information:
      Have really enjoyed these US made speakers over the years but alas my partner says I have too many speakers and these have to go.
      They have a pretty interesting Bi-polar design with both front and rear firing drivers that really produces a big sound.
      Their characteristics are warm and relaxed but they can get up and boogie and are perfect as the main speakers in a home theatre system.
      I found this review online which sums them up pretty well I think:
      http://www.hifi-review.com/153459-mirage-m-790.html
       
      Bases are pre-drilled for spikes but I never used this option.
      Overall they are in really good knick accept that the speaker grill cloth on the rear of the speaker has faded somewhat from light coming in from windows behind them (I never even noticed this until I moved them out to get them ready to sell).
      Happy to demo them to anyone who's keen.
