Hi I recently bought a pair of SF Lilium, BNIB, and upon unpacking, found that the leather had started to peel. The dealer took them back. The dealer is having it re- wrapped but I was wondering if anyone has done this properly (not just sticking another layer over it) or does it have to go back to the factory to be done properly? Thanks J
The only way that would happen is that somewhere along the line the speaker was exposed to too much heat causing the adhesive to liquefy. It can be fixed rather easily but what damage was done to the rest of the speaker. No way of knowing. For that much money they can give you a new pair and fire sale the damaged ones. They have insurance. The dealers hate to do this because it is a pain in the A--. New speakers delaminating?? Tell your credit card company to get the money back if they do not give you a new pair. Defective merchandise. Do not back off!!
Thx for the inputs and suggestions. I did not pay full retail but it was sold to me as BNIB and it was uncrated in my home. Dealer has taken back the speakers, but gave me the option to still purchase it after refurbishment, but with no further reductions in price (since it was sold below full retail).
That last pic was pretty bad. If the dealer is having Sonus Faber replace the leather, I would not be concerned-Especially, if they can insure the rest of the speaker is working as it should. If an outside party is doing the work, I might be inclined to take a pass. Bob
https://ibb.co/album/gRLr8v Hi everyone, I just went to take a look at the speakers. One side was done. They were done very professionally. The fit and finish was as good as new. They used a more durable felt type material that will be more durable than leather in tropical weather where I am and the dealer will warranty the job for 10 years, so I have decided to keep them. Most SF leather will eventually peel in the tropics. Thanks for all your advice! Cheers J
