There are many imposter B110 units being sold on ePrey currently.
All of them horribly overpriced!

I found this as well as the Peerless units this morning, just read the altered mounting recommendations being given using “Wood Screws”!

The first thing that would put me off is the fs, much higher than the original… as for the rest of the parameters... Evil or Very Mad

horrible. Wink

Be grateful Andy these outstanding sellers of ”any old shit will do” are doing you a favour, you can sell your genuine drivers giving the substandards of sleezeBay even more commission knowing that they’ll be used in part payment for some drugs or slavery deal in patronage and homage driven South East Asia where Human Rights count for nothing and achieve the sound you never ever wanted! Twisted Evil

Many moons ago I sold some mint replacememnt KEF drivers to a friend so that he could finish 'his project'. A couple of months later I was upset to find that he was selling them on ePrey at inflated cost.

Any remaing units I have I'd rather give away to a good honest home as long as they remained there. The strict proviso being that should any change occur then the units come back to me.

We still sometimes speak but he has been demoted to rank of an acquaintance. He did in fact start the project but ran out of enthusiasm.
I'd have been quite happy to have bought the B200s from him, but I guess they were his after all... Sad
