got my cdm1nts back from b&w (they replaced faulty tweeter driver moter) hooked up to 3802 they now sound as they should , have at last got the (wow factor) am now a happy man ,thanks all


Glad to hear it mick23 (no puns intended).

I remember when I bought my Ruark Preludes, they didn't sound right at all. Took them back, discovered the left of the pair had some internal bracing which had come away.

Ruark were superb, took the pair back and next day delivered a brand new pair... along with £30 worth of record vouchers by way of an apology! The working Preludes have been excellent ever since.

Hope you enjoy your B&Ws for a long, long time to come.


:D :D brilliant Mick, had to be something wrong. I was beginning to suspect impaired high frequency hearing as you are a sheet metal worker but thought I might sound a bit cheeky.
How did you discover the fault?
