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'...

Great looking displays and shop JQ!

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
