dragont, my speakers came with spikes between the two speakers. i pulled these and am using blu tack - you can get this cheaply at the hardware store. works for me. i assume you run these without the grills - huge difference if you don't. re sales: the only time i saw these on the web was about 6months ago and it was the home theater outfit, i.e. 2 jems, 4 jubilee's and one center channel. it was a distress sale and they sold in one day for over 4k. i've seen the regents sell at 45 to 50% of new price. fyi i bought mine new about 5yrs ago for 4500. i'm not sure how aware the typical audiophile is of the value of these speakers. i see it as being an upgrade on the contour line of dynaudio, with better bass and without the impedence problem the contour presents. you could always put them up for auction with a reserve so you don't get burned if there is no current market. personally, as you may have gathered, i wouldn't sell mine as i think i would have to pay 6500 to 7500 just to get up to their level of performance. as an all around speaker these are tough to beat - i think my choice of amplification obviates my need for the ultimate in tweeters, and, unlike you, i doubt if i would hear the difference. good luck - if you find a suitable replacement let me know - it will give me something to consider. p.s. i know you did't ask for amp recommendations, but i have been curious about how these would sound with a sonic's frontier power 2 - did you get into any other amps before you chose the classe?
