I cannot believe some of the advice that is given on here.
Glad to see you are going down the replacement route 'Armchair', even though it will mean yet more hours [days] waiting for a delivery driver. There is no excuse for goods to be in this sort of shape, unless there was a noticable hole/dink in the packaging. My experience is that Tyson are a supremely helpful company, both before and after you have paid your money.
It seems that Tyson and Q Acoustics need to sort out better packaging/packing/quality control.
Best of luck when you get your system up and running. It would be nice to hear how you get on.

I am hoping to pickup the stands - did you get them second hand or haggled with someone for £159?
I purchased some other kit from Peter Tyson and I noticed that some of the products on the PT website have loyalty vouchers with them as well as a 3 year warranty inc. So when I also bought a Marantz NR1504 afterwards I got a £40 loyalty voucher with it, so I used it against the cost of the stands.

Thats 3 sets of the same speakers that seem to have arrived damaged on this forum in the last week , I would send them back for sure , and if I was PT I'd be checking if they are all from the same shipment to him . Disgruntled employee some where maybe ?

I've used Peter Tyson many times, great retailer and have always been good to deal with if I've had a problem.
I effectively got £70 off a Sonos S5 once as I had the loyal voucher from a Roksan amp.

Just another quick update to say that the replacement speakers will be with me on Tuesday - they are dropping them off at my workplace and taking away the damaged ones.
Excellent customer service so far - fingers cross the next set are OK
If you are not very care its appearance, you can keep it. But I recommend you to return it, because anyone who buy a new product don't want it with flaw.
Well, I said I'd keep everyone up to date with this and my replacement speakers arrived today.
This set are perfect and are now hooked up and sounding fantastic. GJ Peter Tyson
