Usher Be-10

Recommended Posts

I find this ad so funny when it shouldn’t be.

A pair of beautiful Usher Be-10 for £4200. The only problem is they are NOT a pair: I am sure the woods are different. Take a look yourself.

After asking the question to the seller (must be Emporium hifi as the location is Bungay), they said it is likely just the photo but would need to check and get back to me. They didn’t. Incredible.

Perhaps there is another mismatched pair elsewhere waiting to be sold :).

Could be I guess, but a big difference.  It looks like one is rosewood/mahogany and the other walnut!

PS. I see they claim it’s a slight difference due to fading. Rather more than slight to my eyes!

It's not just the top though is it? all down at least one side is the same. In any event it's just way too uniform to be sun damage.

But for something so obvious and given how much you are being asked to pay who in their right mind would spend over £4000 on a mis matched pair of speakers ? I would have thought that any sensible seller would either as has been suggested pay for a french polisher to match the units and make them visually acceptable or offer them at a very low price and be honest about the differences.

What gets me is that this dealer is trying to sell expensive speakers by copy/pasting a review, not adding any "real" text, and not even knowing if the speakers are actually mismatched. Terrible.

minion I think you're a spammer judging from all your irrelevant posts today.  But just in case you're not....if you want two different in different woods, just click "buy it now" and then you will have it.

Clearly not a pair. The veneer isn't "mirrored" which it should/would be on a pair. I asked them for the serial numbers of both units and surprisingly they haven't come back to me :-/
