Hi, just read your thread about the Skibos. I was lucky myself to pick up a pair of the Skibos on Audiogon last year, I picked them up sight unheard after contacting the Sugden company who produce the A21a integrated amp to see which speakers they recommended as an excellent match. They recommended three speakers - the Proac reference 8 sig and the 1sc and the Skibo. They have also been reviewed in Hi Fi News paired with Sugden. I have to say they are an awesome speaker - very detailed, beautiful imagery and firm convincing bass. I especially like them on vocals and jazz. There only short coming is on very heavy bass rock - but I plan on picking up a Rel subwoofer. They are a very sensitive speaker - my Sugden produces only 25 W and they rock pretty loud. I have a very big loft and they fill the room well. My only concern is that I think I annoyed the Scots at Art by asking them tonnes of questions - they thought they were going to make a sale and I was just fishing for info because I saw them used on Audiogon - when I told them I had bought them they were pretty browned off...oh well, hope this has been of some use - feel free to contact me with any questions.
