    I have a black one? It's in great condition and in it's original box.

    Does it have to be cherry?

    I'm hoping to find a cherry one (I've not seen one yet though and beginning to wonder if they actually made them in cherry? I have a set of M3 floorstanders that are cherry so would prefer to match). That said, my centre speaker sits under a black tv, and above a black receiver... so it wouldn't be terrible.

    Can I get back to you if I can't find a cherry one? What would you want for it?

    The daft thing is until last week I had a set of Celestion F30's up front and the Tannoys at the side and have been looking - without any luck! - for an F35C. Then I did another test and decided I prefer the M3s up front so swapped them around and thought "Great, I bet it's easier to get the matching center for them!"... ;)

    Thanks
    John

    Yeah that's fine, I'm not sure they did it in Cherry.

    Will get back to you regarding pricing in the morning if that's ok?

    Hi John,

    Sorry for the delay life is pretty hectic with our 1 week old daughter at the moment! :D

    I've attached some pics of the speaker which I've gotten out of the box (which has all the original packaging) to check this morning. As I thought it's in mint condition.

    I'd like £40 (paypal gift or bank transfer) plus your choice of postage at cost.

    Let me know.

    EarToday,

    I've just sold a set of Tannoy Mercurys in cherry and I can inform you that they never made a centre in any finish other than black.

    Hi Jetsetjimbo,

    First of all congratulations!

    I'm just re-organising my speakers again (having managed to get a pair of B&W DM5s repaired which I am going to use solely for music). I'm 99% sure I'm going to keep the M3s at the front for the 7.1 so will want this center speaker, but I can give you a definite reply tomorrow?

    Thanks
    John

    And thanks ymisyd - that answers that question!

    EarToday,

    As you're going down the 7.1 route and are looking to match your M3's in cherry, I have a pair of cherry M1's for sale in this forum.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Thanks Mark, but my speakers are already a bit of a mish-mash (I have a corner tv setup and no choice about it, so there's no point going silly on things, it'll never be great).

    The center speaker will sit below a black tv and above a black receiver so it'll look fine in black too.

    Plus it's for my house in Spain so easier to ship a center speaker over ;)

    Thanks anyway,
    John

    Sorry, just got you. I could use these for the rears... I'm using Gold Gale Monitors at the moment. I'll have a think. Thanks.

    Hi James,

    Yes please, I'll take it. Sorry, I got tied up yesterday looking for a new (old) amp for my DM5s and testing some new SACDs.

    Shall we take this to PM?

    Thanks
    John
