    Not too sure where to post this, hopefully the mods will know where is best.....anyhoo.....

    Kef are selling a limited range of B stock speakers direct from the factory on a well known auction site.

    Prices (at least at the moment) seem very good.

    regards

    Kef celestion had 2 kef reference 200c centre speakers on ebay. I know as I bought one after being let down by another forum member (mods Advised) the one I bought sale ended yesterday and the other one ended about about 3 pm today. They were advertised as brand new but B grade - " may have slight damage to case or possible small cosmetic defect " I emailed kef and was was told that they would carry the full 5 year guarantee and most probably be perfect.
    I just checked back and found that they currently have no other products for sale but I spoke to a guy at Creative Audio who believes Kef are going to use ebay in future to clear B graded stock.
    By the way, Creative Audio have bought out Kefs final stock of new (A grade)200c centre speakers and are selling them at £499.
    If your interested I paid £315 for mine and the second one went for £351.
    hope this has been helpful

    It sucks really


    Kef expect us to buy their products in store only, While they flog them on ebay.
    Seems a bit odd to me that.

    Yeah it's bizarre contradiction alright.

    I took my 1800 euro and bought Canton, I was going down the kef road but my problem was they aren't stocked in Ireland. Bought Canton from tenspot and so happy i did.
