Well they arrived this afternoon - wow they are big!  The packing system (2 layers) was initially a bit complicated but actually quite clever design.  Set up, warmed up and then tried them this evening - gobsmacked.   Truly happy bunny here.

I thought I was excited before I read your post but now I'm drooling at the mouth!  Seriously though, really pleased to ditch the sub, it's a great bit of kit but pressure is coming from a certain quarter to 'rationalise'.  Is there 'owt else we have in common?  I have a beard!!!;)

My other half was pleased with the rationalisation here too ;)  I am sure that we will have other things in common, but no, alas, a beard. 

Let us know when you have them in place.  They arrive on a pallet and take some handling.

I see that I was too late with my warning about the pallet!  They do take some running in, so don't be too worried if they go a little off colour along the way. Did you get the same finish as mine?

Pic herewith!  Christmas is just the wrong time for this sort of purchase when the lounge starts to sprout trees and sprouts!  Speakers some distance away from their final loc but nevertheless they are producing a significant number of wows per track so far.  OH out with girlies and me alone listening to Eva C's 'Imagine' CD with Gin in hand wondering just how important she would have been had she not left us so early.

John - guess which I went for!

How go the speakers samd?  Mine just keep on giving, the run in on these is a long long time.....  An absolute bargain for this level performance.

C500's are excellent speakers.
