    A few months ago I saw an advert in a magazine for some speakers which look like a photo/picture frame. Can anyone tell me what these are and if they are any good?

    Thanks,
    Kamaran

    Don't quote me but I'm sure Richer Sounds sold them a while back. They were made by Wharfedale, I think, and came with a sub to fill in the lower frequencies.

    If you are considering Artcoustic wait a while and listen to the PMC's. The difference is quite refreshing. The PMC's actually sound good.

    Odyssey Audio has some of these types of speakers, now. I don't know how they compare to any other's in price, but it doesn't hurt to look into it and speak to Klaus. He'll ship anywhere and he's a great guy.

    Thanks for the advise, Knightshade.

    But it is supposed to be an attempt at humor. A little tounge in cheek, if you will.

    I would hope I wouldn't be targeted or discriminated against for being an American. After all, this is an Audio/Home Theater orientated forum and my contributions are on topic.

    Hi NMyTree,

    I don’t think Knightshade was discriminating against you, I think it has more to do with your hometown/city and its meaning in good old England. Basically our British (occasionally poor) sense of humour.
