Why not care ?
Why keep quiet about it Chebby ?
There must have been plenty of examples of all brands of loudspeakers mis-sold on ebay by now. Probably every day.
Why should we care about these in particular?
It's not about caring, it's simply that these have been identified in advance of the end of the sale, so warning people of the risk is the right thing to do.
No signature worth mentioning...
If the speakers are in such a bad shape, and the seller is finally, thanks to Alec, aware of this and had still done nothing, can we assume that you, or Max, etc., will be in touch with Ebay to advise them of your concerns, assuming the seller hasn't updated and corrected the listing?

If it had been a pair of KEFs or Wharfedales then it wouldn't be news.

If that came over to harsh, I do apologise. Perhaps I misunderstud what you said.
You do misunderstand. I was not the one saying he would or should care. You'd know that if you had read back a post or three.
Always a good idea. Sorry Alec
Pretty ... and pretty proud of it
I would have thought news has travelled to North Korea by now.
Nah. You hit the nail squarely on the head.
You've been reinstated.
Yes he has. He asked me to reconsider whether his ban had been merited, which in conjunction with the other moderators I did. It was felt that it had been a misunderstanding and I had been harsh, for which I have apologised.

Of course not, as the manufacturers themselves may not have the track record of the speakers they sell. Small time manufacturers like AVI and EB Acoustics will be able to track their products, especially ADM40 which wouldn't have sold much due to the price, in comparison to the other speakers you're mentioning.
It is remarkable for Ashley to identify the speakers, and whom he sold to. Let a Kef or Wharfedale manufacturer to do that first, then we'll see if it becomes a thread or not.
For the record (before I get accused), I don't own AVI speakers, and don't intend to buy one either.

I still don't understand why the buyer didn't immediately return them to AVI when the damage was discovered.
How did this ebay seller 'get in the loop' (which should only consist of AVI - courier - buyer).
What would be the likelihood of a pair of the above being identified beyond a doubt from a listing on an auction site?
Good to see that some things don't change on here, what an inspiration some people are.

If you are genuinely interested then a visit to the link in the original post will answer your questions.
Each ADM40 is only made to the customer's individual order. Consequently, this pair had unique features.
They became the property of the carriers when compensation was paid, and the original customer was supplied with a new replacement pair.
It would appear that the damage 'salvage' is being sold by the carriers, or their successive agents, to recover their losses.
