These are a stunning pair of speakers. Were rated as best speakers for speakers up to £1000 by Whathifi a year or so ago and were routinely selling for £999. At this price, this is an absolute steal. Think they are trying to get rid of these as there is a newer version available now but with speakers, things do not change much from one generation to next anyway. So if you are in the market for floor standers, I can whole heartedly recommend these. Bought these myself for about £700 9 months or so back (that was a really good deal back then!) and thse are totally worth it.
