    Yes, I found that distributor already, I can order from the USA and its a lot cheaper even with tax and delivery and thats from an Energy dealer.

    Its really annoying that you can buy so cheaply from the USA, even after been stung for tax, import duty and delivery.

    I have a 9.1 system and in that set up all my surround speakers are the CR-3.
    The surround left and right are set as di-poles and the surround back left and right are set as bi-poles.
    My main are the C3 and the center is the C-C3.
    So how they perform............GREAT.
    I don't have time to analyze right now how great they perform but you have to trust me.
    I am a Sound Engineer. :cool:

    Just an update :

    finally got a quote from the local dealer to supply (couldnt get a pair from the US :mad: ) £600.00 a pair.

    So, kept looking around for possible alternatives and ended up on the Sevenoaks site. 'Thats interesting' I thoughts t mesel', they sell the Energy 5.1 pack, I wonder if.........' . Gave them a ring (my local branch in Geordie land)

    "I dont suppose you............etc, oh , you do....in stock?.........great........in maple?..you have ....and the price?.......£499.00, oh fantastic........oh you also have them on special offer......at £399 a pair......brilliant.......and a tenner to send them out tonight........done"

    So, ordered Yesterday afternoon, arrived today, fan-bloody-tastic, well done Sevenoaks Newcastle :smashin: :smashin:

    They are beautifully made, quickly wired up and checked out, all working well, ready for install.
