Its very neat and tidy.  An old building but nicely restored and has not been spoiled by modern touches

Those are the 2010i's. I have them in gloss black and gloss white for R3000.00 - they actually work damn well with the valve amp considering they are not really considered a 'good match'...

Hehe, it was the Kandi Man that put me onto the shop...

Brilliant display, AR! All the best with the shop.

I'd love that Philips 45rpm record changer.  Just the thing for a retro style playlist
