    How can i tell if these are real or fake?

    cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/…082

    I want to buy them but with the guys feedback im not 100% they're real, if they're not do i have a leg to stand on to get my money back?

    are there any tell tail signs to spot a fake?

    well it says its there second shop and there first shop has over 12000 feedback if they've started a shop i doubt they would sell moody goods. The main problem is if the speakers are second hand and they turn out to be faulty you got a hassle of trying to get money back

    im looking for smallish speakers, good for a uni room but still pack a punch.

    atm i have logitech x540 but its a little too large. for uni.

    Do you think companion 2 speakers would be better?

    the whole second shop thing sounds bit dodgy to me, no feedback, ***** english, american bank account.......

    ive got the logitech z10 which are pretty decent but a mate has these and they are superb unless you want seperate bass box like t3's

    Personally I wouldn't buy from them unless I contacted the first shop and found out if this was actually there 2nd shop or if someone was jumping on there feedback/reputation.

    i did send him a question asked cheekily if i could have them for £130 he replied on his high feedback account

    "buysellandloan (11582)
    99.6% Positive Feedback
    Member since 04-Oct-01 in United Kingdom"

    so im thinking it is the same guy, the only problem is, why does he have 2 accounts?

    rep given tho keep the feedback coming

    Yeah I dont understand why they would open up a 2nd shop either, if there first was a success then why not just keep going on that one, tis weird.

    i lol'd @ the CDs :lol:

    he will of opened another shop because of all this new dsr business.....get 4/5 of them (1 or 2 stars) within a year or 5% of your sales and you get suspended

    its all gone crazy

    Description... The over use of the word HAS puts me off for a start !

    TBH i wouldnt want ANY of those things, if i win this theres gonna be a freebe competition to win all the random stuff ive given him 2 offers now and im not going to be spending more than 160

    Mixed/Poor reviews see

    IMO you'd be much better of with Audioengines (A2 or A5, me I'd go with the A5) A5 are a comparable price, A2 are nearly half the price- see this review to get an idea of the quality

    stereophile.com/bud…ae/

    Me, I went with these instead (after much googling, reviewing and pondering)

    amazon.co.uk/exe…-21

    I have had these since Christmas and I am delighted, they are fantastic. From what I've read, if you really like your music (if you're thinking of spending a couple of hundred quid on speakers I'm assuming you do) don't get 'computer spreakers' (excepting the audioengines I've mentioned) get yourself a pair of 'monitors' - usually used for home studio stuff.

    You can get smaller monitors such as Edirol MA-15D.

    Anyway just my tuppence worth - but IMO don't get these overpriced underwhelming speakers.

    Hope this helps
