    Does anyone know a delaer of these speakers in the north (ideally northwest) of England?

    I've noticed an advert for Schonbergs which are the best looking speakers I've ever seen for under £2000. Just need to see and hear live them before I part with the cash.

    Has anyone come across these or have any other suggestion for ultra modern looking speakers in this price range? I don't want anything that looks traditional.

    All good but not all have that the WOW factor for me. I like the System Audio SA7K Master though. They look fantastic. Can't find a supplier in the UK though.

    The shop I was in today were trying to sell me the KEF xQs or Mission Elegance E82. Both nice looking speakers but don't have the mega looks of the System Audio or Vienna speakers to me.

    They did actually recommend the canton gear as well, which I must admit do look good but still just quite close enough. Going to look closer at Canton range.

    I believe these are in Newcastle.
    With regard to how they sound? Very musical excellent for Classical music a very over looked speaker. Canton and Audio Physic aren't in the same league.
    I have a dealer quite close to me who stocks these and the rest of the Vienna Acoustic range. Very nice they are too.

    i think i have seen them at bristol hifi show perhaps worth going to manchester show for either a quick demo or to find book demo at nearest dealer... the nearest dealer may not carry much stock so getting manufacturer importer support may be useful...

    I heard the Haydins, standard and signature, liked both, but the premium is noticeably better, Scanspeak tweeter and better crossover, recomended them to a friend who is very happy with a pair...

    Thanks HornyDragon.

    Spoke to the main distributor in the UK. Going to see them in Manchester on Sat. It's between them and the Mission e82s at the moment. Beauty or the Beast!

    I think the Missions Elegante's are beautiful speakers, well finished too, and they sound great as well, I was VERY impressed when I heard them at the Bristol show.
