    Don't worry, you didn't want them. Even if you did.

    They look very similar to these...

    I heard them at a "home show" at Earl's court earlier in the year. They sounded good for the money (I think they were £650). I also think they sometimes advertise in What Hifi.

    Hope this helps

    Go for a demo if you're local. They're back on if you're interested.

    @Russ- are they rubbish? Don't be enigmatic, tell us like it is ;)

    I really don't like the sunken drivers. Given the frequencies being handled I would imagine these short rings would produce a distinct HF pipe resonance. I like loudspeaker designs that place an emphasis on exposing the drivers to the maximum degree in a baffle as narrow as possible to avoid diffraction effects. The drivers are also rather small for moving large quantities of air in an AV system playing at high levels. This would require very long throw drivers with higher distortion levels likely in comparison with larger drivers for the same SPLs. The need for speaker headroom in film watching should not be underestimated. The purchase of a decent subwoofer would have some speaker systems quickly running out of steam on dynamic effects. The sub can't do it all.
