A pair have just gone up on ebay in a considerably better condition than the ones I'm rescuing. I'll be interested to see what they go for. Any guesses?

Heh. It's subtle Colin but I detect a hint of disappointment there. Okay, I'll stick with the T27 but I'll have to get them repaired which is why I was fishing for options. Will KEF still perform this ...

What can I sayÖ truly you are a man of great wisdom, your diagnosis was spot on (ever thought of becoming a doctor? Maybe you are one). Now at the risk of testing your patience if I thought that this ...
