    More's the pity that the audio magazines that reviewed this product in the states a while back, which if not at the time of their reviews then shortly thereafter, did not provide internal photographs. Thanks for the update.

    Wow, I really can't wait to get my Aurum Cantus speakers then. [​IMG] Should be in by mid December.
    Aurum Cantus Leisure 2 (in the flat finish, glossy also available):

    I actually picked up the Leisure 2 Deluxe, the MR-C center channel, and the Music Goddess towers. Should be a good upgrade from my current system. [​IMG]

    Here we go again! This is interesting. The second page on the Geocites web site says it all. Here is the link:

    The $10,000 amp challenge should be changed to having a face-off between the Korsun and Red Rose amps. [​IMG]

    Oh, and before this thread goes too far in indicting the high-end audio industry as a whole, we should all remember that this sort of straight rebadging is not common.

    We should also know by now that this type of ripping off is very common. [​IMG]

    Mike,
    We covered this topic before in some detail.
    The problem was that pictures do not explain what if any modifications were performed.
    In the prior thread, no evidence of parts lists of both speakers were produced or of either amp.
    If heavy modifications were performed, which according to Mark Levinson, were, then increased prices are entirely justified.

    Those are beautiful. And the price is right if you ask me [​IMG] From reading the Red Rose specs the drivers used are not that expensive, so a "fair price" (just speculating here) in the rest of the world would be around $1,000 bucks per pair. For $3,500 one should expect better performance.

    Sheesh, what an incredible bargain Gabriel! Makes one wonder what other speakers are OEM'd in China. I must remember to stop by China next time I go on a holiday, however, lugging a full set of 5 speakers in a suitcase might not be such a great idea. [​IMG]
    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hehe, yeah. I was surprised at the cost. I ended up getting 2 pairs for the surrounds and rears. I also picked up their top of the line floor standing speaker for my fronts, and their top of the line center for the center channel. [​IMG] It'll be mid december before everything is manufactured and shipped over, but I'm pretty excited.

    Perhaps, if it's not too much trouble, can you share the approach you took to get them to you? Got a final estimated price?
    Lee, whatever happened to that looking in you were going to do with your buddy?
