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: Mint, As New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Central Coast NSW State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Getting out of vinyl Chord Huei MM/MC Phono Preamplifier
       
      Barely used, perhaps about 5 hours of use in total so its in mint condition.  Has 2 of its 3 year warranty still remaining. Comes with all of the original packaging .
       
      I bought this along with a Rega P6 (also for sale) to give vinyl a try but I dont think vinyl is for me.  Tried it with my Rega Ania MC and it sounds great.  I wanted a phono that had a lot of control for the gain so I could eliminate as much noise as possible and this certainly gave me that.

      - Revel M106 Pair in Piano Gloss Black, with geniune Revel M series stands
      - Perfect mint condition
      - 5-10 hours use only
      - Purchased in Sept 2019
      - Factory protective film still on sides of speakers, which makes them appear marked/scratched on photos. Film has been removed today and not a single mark on them.
      - Arguably the best bookshelf speaker on the market. Pair them with a sub and you will have a setup that will rival speakers many times the price.
      - Used with a Benchmark HPA4 + AHB2 combo and sounded fantastic! 
      - Retail Price $3,495 for speakers + $799 for stands.

      Item Condition: New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: SURRY HILLS State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, cash, EFT Reason for selling: Not needed A few months ago I decided to turn the great-sounding but ugly and complicated DIY 3 way actively EQed open baffle speakers I've been enjoying for many years into almost-as-good sounding, simple, WAF-friendly speakers I could maybe sneak into the living room.
       
      I was using a couple of MiniDSPs and a big ugly 8 channel amp. 
       
      My initial thought was buy a couple of MiniDSP PWR-ICE125 plate amps and build them into the cabinets with a hybrid passive xover.
       
      When they arrived it became obvious that wasn't much more simple, so I switched to a passive crossover for each speaker with one PWR-ICE doing amping and EQ for the pair.
       
      This is working well.
       
      So I don't need the second PWR-ICE125. 
       
      It is brand new in the box and comes with the optional backbox so you can use it free-standing or as a plate amp.
       
      The amp section is B&0 Icepower. The DSP section is the usual MiniDSP but with digital and analog inputs, and best of all wireless control.
       
      https://www.minidsp.com/products/plate-amplifiers/pwr-ice125
       
      Pick up in Surry Hills or I can ship.
       
      The pic is the amp I am using. The one you are buying is still in its box.
