Thought people might want to know. These systems have received v.gd. reviews from users. On site at Ebuyer on 10days order. Have just ordered a set.

cheers mate..just find it toogood to be true.
But i'll take your word my friend!

Ebuyer occasionally has very good deals. I am just hoping the speakers will come into stock as they say in 10days.

  rickf 10:05 28 Dec 2003

Apologies, my mistake. Should read £7.01 and £8.24 incl. vat.

You're a star! Order accepted for delivery on 6th Jan.

As the rear speaker leads are 'only' 3m long, does anyone know a good source for audio extension cables?

It also says "odered on request". They have sold over a thousand of these at something like £28 ex vat. I have been monitoring it and came across it by chance yesterday at this low price.

I did a temporary order this morning and it came up with a price of under £15 inc p and p and delivery date of Tuesday, January 6th....

The one problem with speakers is that the sound quality varies considerably - what might please me someone else would absolutely hate.

That's why you need to hear them and compare them with other speakers first.

But sound quality should be at the top of the list....:-)

I've got a pair of £100 bookshelf hi-fi speakers that outperform some at two, three or four times the price - but I found out only by listening to a wide selection of offerings.

Well, Hercules is a reputable manufacturer of sound cards and some high end speakers systems etc., I should imagine that they are of good quality. A quick read of reviews by users in Ebuyer seem to have that consensus. As said they were just under £40 incl about two weeks back and had been running for some time. Dabs is selling them at £41 at present. Lets hope it all comes to fruition.
