    Hi,

    I'm about to buy the Kef 2005 eggs after testing them out. Question is which colour? I've only seen the silver ones but am led to believe that they also come in black but it is a wierd paint type. Apparently the black is textured and I'm concerned that this might scuff or worse over time.

    Anyone seen them / got them?

    I have the silver ones and think they look great, however I saw the black ones in superfi in Leeds last saturday and think they look KaK

    They look awful. in what looks like matt black, and your right about scratch marks, I could imagine them getting the paint scuffed off very easily

    I have the black ones and think they look great. I looked at the silver ones too and the word that sprung to mind is tacky.

    The black ones aren't painted but coated in a rubberised solution so they shouldn't scuff at all. Although I must admit I'm yet to test this by using a speaker as an impromptu hammer. I also think that if you are looking for inconspicuous (surely one of the the main drivers behind getting these speakers) then black would blend in more than silver.

    Black looks good. It also has a lovely 'tactile' feel to it that is cold to the touch. ;)
