yeah! I once fixed the hupcap badge to the hubcap on my mothers MGB roadster after I pulled it off. It took my Dad about 6 months to notice and only after he knocked it of during a wheel change!

Has the KEF concerto bubble burst on ebay for a while?

These certainly look better than mine and I paid 80 for my pair.

Has anyone contacted the seller?

Actually, I had forgoten about the toylite stands. They have quite a large, square base plate and look good. Russ Andrews intentionally makes these lightweight to remove vibration from the speaker, al ...

I've seen some of the pictures on your website. The speakers certainly look solid! How did you integrate the marble slab and the spiked cabinet? Can the slabs be removed?

What difference did the sc ...

They look fab.

My (1968?) Concertos have a bar threaded to the B139s magnet and locked to the rear panel with a nut tightened from the exterior at the rear. Is this standard? My friends 1974 Concertos do not have th ...
