Just make sure you've got a good pension plan because you may be retired by the time you receive them. I ordered from Spain (and paid for) a pair back in August and am still awaiting delivery - and not a peep from EB Acoustics, not even a reply to a recent e-mail I sent them. By the time I get them they will be yesterday's technology. I only hope the quality of their sound is in inverse proportion to the quality of the company's customer relations.
They are still trading. Delivery took longer than advised and communication was scant, but this is forgiven as the speakers are brilliant.
Does anyone know if EB are still trading? I ordered a set of EB2 in March and I'm still waiting. I fear they may have gone the way of the dinosaur and my hard earned HiFi savings are fueling a receiver...
I had a brief phone conversation with someone at EB about a month ago and he assured me they were about to be shipped and that I would have them in a week. I'm trying to be patient but now I can't get through on the phone and no reply to emails at all.
I paid through paypal so I might go through them to get my money back... such a shame, these speakers have such a good review. If anyone knows what is going on I'd be really appreciative of an update... Hopefully my next post will be a glowing report on how amazing my new EB2s sound... fingers crossed...
Yes, AFAIK, EB Acoustics are still trading. It's not uncommon for speakers ordered from EB to take quite a while to be made and delivered as there's a big backlog. Hopefully your patience will be rewarded.
I read your comments above with interest recently and I am pleased you were so happy with your purchase. I am thinking of purchasing the EB2 speakers. Before I do, I need to know how far they need to sited from the back wall. My listening room is on the small side (12 x 12 feet) so I would prefer to site about no more than 6-10 inches from the back wall.
Is this okay?
I presently have a Linn Karik/Numerik CD, Naim amps and Linn Kans 2 speakers. Quite a nice sounds, if a little on the warm side.
Foxster72, as we've explained elsewhere on our Forums, the EB2s were excluded from Awards consideration due to the manufacturer's inability to meet demand (one of our key Awards criteria).
Nothing wrong with the speakers mind, they're fabulous. But they just can't make them fast enough.
No, they should be fine unison.
The bigger the top plate the better. Super Dreadnoughts will do just fine.
AL13N - it's on the test agenda!
I'm proud to be part of the design, as I shared my idea in that thread too. Thanx team for 5 star.
would these be similar to bw 602 s3
will they be too "lean" sounding with cyrus amps ?
First test. 5 stars.
Now bring on the EB2 vs ATC showdown...
How would these work with a Super Nait and Olive 4H
I can concur with pretty much all of the below. Yes, EB Acoustics 'customer service' is lacking (no email as acknowledgment of order, virtually no reply to emails at all), yes, you do have to be patient (I waited three and a half months for mine.....) and yes, they are damn ugly! HOWEVER, when you do finally gets yours, you won't be disappointed. I've just received mine today and I'm bowled over, even well before completing the 30 hour run-in. The 'presence', transparency and scale is indeed breath-taking.
If you're wondering about how these compare with the ATC SM11s, well I've (now) got both and however good the SM11s are (and they are, believe me), I think the EB2s have the edge.
I'm feeling like a very lucky fella right now!
Cyrus CD 6SE, Cyrus 6XP, ATC SCM11,EB Acoustics EB2, iPod Classic 160GB, Russ Andrews GQ24, DNM Solid Core TBB100, Chord Carnival Silver Screen, Atlas Hyper 2.0, Hi Fi Racks Podium, Partington Super Dreadnought.
What stands would you recommend for speakers of this size? I use Partington Super Dreadnoughts usually.
Shouldn't they be best buy 600-1000 pounds speakers instead of the ATM SCM11? According to your review, the EB2 are better and cheaper.
