    I paid £750 for my Ref 3.2's in Rosetta Burr with a couple of surface marks which i though was a bargain. These have been seen to go on e-bay for over £1000

    The 1's and 1.2's can be had for as low as £300-£350.

    Obviously the 2's will be somewhere in the middle :thumbsup:

    The 3.2's were my best buy yet and i'm glad that i spent the extra over the 2.2's i was after. They sound great but i agree that they need to be more spaced apart. Until the TV blows and is replaced with a 50" flat jobbie, we can't move the room around to accomodate them :thumbsdow

    I still need to get the Power amp sorted, but funds have just been comitted on a new SVS PC Ultra :D

    Hope that you get some sorted at a decent price.

    I was looking at using a 5 channel Parasound or high end Rotel to Bi-Amp the 3.2's and use the additional channel on my XQ2C. TBH the Denon is doing a fine enough job at the moment, but i get the feeling it's like running a supercar on supermarket fuel and only using half throttle :D

    I's love to hear them with Brystons but these really are out of my league :rolleyes:
