Here's an interesting but sad 105.2 story:
http://www.canuckaudiomart.com/details/180473-kef_reference_1052/

Oddly, no mention of the reworked woofers or cabinet chips & dings as identified by the previous owner ..... who BTW sold them for 35% less than this asking price.
And I thought CAM was a traders exchange community. Or that's what it used to be.
Sadly more e-bayish all the time.

that is sad. The surround on the B300 looks a bit suspect where it is glued to the frame, bit of an amateurish job?

Thanks for that tip.... I would be tempted to buy them if I had spotted them.

That's pretty sad....

Well ... there's nothing wrong with selling what you no longer want or need. I've certainly been there / done that.
But lay out the facts ... especially when asked directly. As I did. Turns out I already knew the history, and my clandestine inquiry failed to meet with disclosure.
Now I realize why such seller distrust abounds among members.

I'll keep an eye out for you Gary.
