    What is it you want?

    A full set of Sonus Faber's for a grand!

    Only if they're stolen.

    From reading ... am I correct you only want a pair of front speakers ... or are you looking for 5 (or 7) as a full set?

    The second question is ... what size room?

    A pair of SF Concertinos will stil leave you with emough money for a good subwoofer...

    I find the Concertos justify the price difference, but then you will have to stretch your budget for the sub...

    They are great speakers, you will love them...

    One pair ATC SCM-7 standmount monitors: £480.

    One ATC Concept 1 subwoofer: £600.

    Stretching your budget by £80 to attain audio nirvana: priceless.

    As long as you leave them on the floor and don't buy any stands for them or perhaps audio nirvana will be obtained by mounting them on orange boxes.

    Well, I was kinda hoping he already had stands for his existing speakers... Although a nice hefty pair of 'proper' stands would definitely beneift them, I'd concentrate on getting the speakers first and worry about the stands later on when you've got a bit more cash to spare.

    In any case, you can get a decent pair of stands (say, Atacama SE24s) for not much more than £30 so it wouldn't be stretching yer budget *too* much further....... (famous last words)

    Cheers,

    Where can you get Atacama SE24s (except S/H) for £30??? £70 or more is more the going rate.

    Anyway I still think that specifying speakers without knowing the room size is asking for trouble!!

    I was told recently that the Atacama SE24's along with the 12, 16, and 20's have been discontinued. You may find a few odd pairs still in stock here and there.
    The new SE models are the 5, 6 and 10.

    Vikki,

    Sorry, you're right, I did mean secondhand.

    Everyone else:

    Can somebody maybe enlighten me as to the model of the Target stands I recently bought second hand? They're 60cm (24 inches) tall, black textured surface, very solid metal, with four thick, solid rectangular pillars. Each stand weighs about 25kg. The dealer I bought them from said the used to go for £275 new (not sure how true that is...)

    Cheers,

    Dunc
