    Cool. They colour-match the dog too.

    Very under-rated at the time. Sadly, they were the wrong look, size and shape to counter the trend for slim floorstanders.

    I rather lusted after Signifers when they were released.

    Lovely! I've always wanted to hear these. I keep an eye out on various places, but they seem to be rarer than hens' teeth.

    A bit of a legend. I must confess to loving the "studio monitor on a trolley" look.

    How's the sound?

    im certainly not left wanting,i normally use ns1000's with upgraded x-overs. the signifers go lower for sure,im going to use them for a few weeks and then swap back to the yamaha's for comparison.

    The single dog across the road makes enough noise on his own.

    You do know why dog's bark repeatedly?

    They hear their own echo, and think it is a replying dog.

    My Hi-fi Choice 'Loudspeakers' book has them listed at £600 inc vat. Not sure of the year as I've lost the front cover, but was around 1979/80.

    I thought the price on the receipt was about right, I seem to recall them being around the £490 mark on launch and then I think they were £540. That would have been spring 1980 IIRC. I left the hifi trade (or thought I did...) in May of that year.

    Thanks for posting, would have done it myself but I couldn't work out how, lol. I bought the book when I purchased my Audiomaster MLS4's and I'm almost certain that was in 1980.
