What a cla55y looking set of PC speakers. A good price reduction but a tad too expensive for my desktop

what great speakers these are.....if you have the dosh then these are worth every penny.

didn't even know that they had an outlet store, will keep an eye out for some reduced bluetooth soundsticks, cheers!

Quality speakers, great price.

I am tempted here, can anyone tip me over the edge into a divorce please

Do what I did just tell here they were cheap £10 ones off ebay!

Any body ordered, I was waitin to here from their customer services dept about returns on these if I don't like the cosmetic damage on the pair I'm sent. Can't work out if this material is the sort of thing that marks really easily and then looks like it came from a car boot

who is the delivery firm, some are more careful. Would love to know condition, if correctly boxed with the cloth bag over each speaker, and with all accessories. Many thanks

Should be delivered today and will reply when I get home. What was good is that they included a link to the RMA page (see below), it looks like they even arrange collection FOC if unhappy within 30 days, as the order is over £50.

thanks, I couldn't decide if that bit of their blurb was relevant to refurb items, or just new ones only.

No remote with these

Surely (normally) the device the speakers is plugged into would have the remote? But either way for me this is not an issue as they will be sitting beside my monitor and within reach.

I wish I could find the length of the supplied lead that connects the L and R spks together!!

OK speakers have arrived via DPD, and I was very impressed with the service.

Length of cable between the speakers is about 1.5m

I can only assume that the speakers were returned by a customer. They do not look like refurbs but brand new. Both speaks came in their own bags, both they are the bags were in perfect condition. All the leads were still in their wrappers!

As for the speakers themselves they sound wonderful, but there is no volume control on them. Certainly the best speakers I have hooked up to my PC.

Overall I am extremely pleased with the purchase. If you have any more questions then please let me know.

Many thanks for that. 1.5m is a bit stingy I guess, was hoping for 2.5m. I read there is a touch sensitive vol control on the front of one spk, above the larger cone. If you play a very familiar piece of your music, do they sound worth the money, remain clear even at their loudest volume. I am still tempted to get to try out. Is the loudest setting adequate to fill a good sized room do you think.

Obviously I need to find the volume control X), but I tested with my iphone last night and I could hear the sound easily in the kitchen from the dinning room (2 rooms away). I will try to measure the connector lead tonight and give you an exact measurement.

I think I'm hook these up with an airport express for AirPlay and control them from elsewhere
