      I've heard good and bad things about these speakers. Lack off bass and difficult integration with certain receivers being two of the negatives. With the slight damage hurting the resale value I would like to offer £400.

      I never said they were terrible speakers otherwise I wouldn't want to buy them. What I am saying is they are risky speakers because they lack the bass of the R300 and seem to sound harsh at loud volumes with certain receivers. That's what I've read on this forum from owners. I've never heard them myself that's why I'd like to own some for the right price so I get to form my own opinions when compared with my current Kefs of various models.

      Magazine reviews are good as a guide but user reviews are far more important to me.

      I don't think anyone's mentioned the speakers being terrible have they?

      I would agree with you about the magazine reviews if it was just the one company but there's about 10 different magazines all singing the praise of these speakers. If you still take all of them with a pinch of salt then the best person to decide if these speakers are worth the money is yourself by going for a demo and seeing what you think!

      I say this as a normal member and not as a moderator but I find it hard to swallow when people expect another member to knock a third off their asking price. If it was a £5k set of Kef Reference then £200 would be reasonable but off a £600 set of speakers its a bit cheeky you gotta admit??

      I think £400 is too low, the speakers sound fantastic and the marks on the front are not visible unless you get extremely close and really examine them.

      Where abouts are you located?

      Hi Arcam_boy, you did mentioned Terrible even if you were being sarcastic.

      I don't think making an offer at any price is being cheeky. SuperSkunk could put these speakers on an auction site with a starting bid of 1p if he wanted. Doesn't mean to say that's what the final price will end up at. No one knows what the seller has paid for them, he didn't say and I haven't asked. I'm not stopping anyone making a better offer and I'm certainly not forcing the seller to sell for a lower price than he wants to get for them. If he gets his full asking price then great.

      Hi SuperSkunk I'm within driving distance.
