Nice Dave, do yourself a favour and knock up a set of legs for them.

14" is a nice height. (well it is for me)

Always wanted a pair after hearing some many years back - problem is my listening is far too small so I'm afraid I'm out :(

Enjoy them Nick.

Ta, yeah they came with pair of Sheldon Stokes stands which lift them up about 18", they're painted bright green so they went up in the loft until I get some sunglasses and repaint them.

Yup, so are mine. They're in the 'Project Room' at the moment, you have to step over them to get in! I don't care. they sound awethumne. The room downstairs is probably too small aswell but I really-really-really wanted them. Dunno what I'm going to do with them yet. Fellow Kent-Massiff member our-Thomas has kindly agreed to look after them already :) So kind!

I know, sorry Ant! I need to resurrect the G99 for the project room system(s), its time will come, fear not. I've got a DIY arm project for it about a 3rd of the way built too which stalled about 8 years and I only remembered it when I left the Laboratories up in London and had to clear out my corner (more of a half actually) of the old Workplace, I had to find a home of tons of 'stuff' that would've been skipped in the big-move/me leaving/career suicide/semi-retirement and thats led to why the project room has been stuffed to the gills with 'things-that-will-come-in-handy-one-day' . It's amazing how much you 'save' over 20 and a half years.

When the kids left home we decided it was a good time to 're-designate' room space. JTS got her room, I got mine, less folk in the house but its still only 'just' big enough...
