I am totally and utterly chuffed with these! click here

They are click here plus click here

the sound coming from them is gorgeous, with the volume potential to annoy the neighbours mightily. Not that I'd do a thing like that, of course. Well, not without warning, anyway.

They look indeed fabolous. Was there not a thread of someone enquiring about speakers? I recall you posting a link to the Ferguson hill site...and now the gorgeous speaker set looks swell in your abode...

Sometimes I wonder to what degree our postings turn out to be fuel a self fulfilling prophecy...I certainly talked myself into VISTA and now I'm more than chuffed to have fallen for my own advice...;-)

Gwen Stefani and Sophie Ellis Bextor should sound even better on that setup...:-)

Are those speakers glass?

If so watch the cat/s dont knock them over.

They look sawesome.

They are indeed gorgeous and sound spectacular - I'm really chuffed with them. I will try Sophie Ellis Bextor on them tomorrow ... Wolfie, they're made of perspex, so they're safe from cat attack.

What is the wattage from that enormous bass subwoofer? I have a 200w but that one of yours looks as if it has roof removing potential!

Where do you live?

No don't tell me I'll follow the boom from deepest Kent.

Have you spent the change on earplugs for the nieghbours ? ;-)

High power speakers won't necessarily upset the neighbours - you can listen to top quality, minimum distortion setups at surprisingly high volumes without being troubled.

It's sound distortion from poor or average speakers that annoys others and from much lower volume levels upwards.

Very true, my surround sound setup has volume control that has a top value of 50....I have never used it above 16, and that is powerful enough to resonate various objects in the room.

It's all about setting each speaker's treble,bass,and midrange correctly.

I doubt your cat will go near them when they are on! Take care that that the subwoofer doesn't bring down the chimney, and anything that might be roosting there!
