1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Could you live with a pair ? Certainly less imposing than traditional enclosures however you might forget they are there and walk in to them :D

    How about these ? I like the spheres but not so bothered about the little horns

    Too much like looking at a person and seeing their gallbladder for me!

    I'm glad I've seen them, but I really dont know what to make of them.

    Had Harmon Soundsticks with a Mac years ago, always wondered if they would ever supersize them.

    I have the mini version of the Ferguson’s. I bought them on a whim and have to say they are a lot better than I was expecting. Sadly I have nowhere to put them at the moment.

    I nearly bought a pair of them, purely on looks. I then slapped myself back to reality, and bought some Kef 104/2's instead. Wish I'd slapped myself again and kept them...

    A local dealer had a pair of those Arabesque for sale used last year - was half tempted

    I heard some amazingly good sounding perspex speakers at a hi fi show some time ago. They used Manger drivers for the top end. I can't remember what they were called but I'd never heard of them before.... or since! Probably prototypes.

    I think they are, I spent an hour listening to them once at a dealer, with Boulder amps I think. Oddly, it was a coloured sound...

    Not for me really, although the Ferguson Hills in the first post don’t look too bad in that space. They might sound darn good too, I have never heard them, but was intrigued when they first came out with them.

    Transparent-everything looks fine in ads - in very much the same way no equipment shots ever show powerleads and interconnects, and the perfect white wall behind ... no power outlets.

    IRL - the potential for nightmare household cleaning/ windolene bills for dustmarks and jammy thumbprints etc... no thanks!

    It did cross my mind what they'd look like once my cat had slid down them claws out a few times..
