I already had one pair before but were used when they were suppose to be brand new and couldn’t make my mind up on them. So I thought better if I cancel if not sure on them.
Time to try the Kef LS50 Wireless II’s instead?
No point in buying the B&Ws again since you’ve already had them and sent them back!

It seems shops barely sell white variations of their products and heavily reduce the price of white colored speakers and subs this period.

In terms of subs I don't really understand why white isn't more popular. A big white box in front of a white wall draws less attention to itself than a black box, and integrates well.

What makes white speakers and subs ugly is that they come with an old fashioned black grill that most often makes them instantly devalue in aesthetics. Any other choice of color might not be wise as they get visibly dirty over time.

Get a downward firing sub and they don't have grilles, they also come in a nice variety of wood finishes.... :)

My bargain recommendation for a new purchase ... Audiolab 6000A.

Stupid value imho.

If you want a built in streamer go for the 6000A Play.

Compare this with for example a SimAudio Moon Neo ACE ...

For our UK people

The Wharfedale Diamond Sw150 as mentioned in another topic. Especially the walnut version for its premium appearance.

Many positive pro reviews and user experiences and high ratings around the net. Miles away from any other affordable sub. Tried to get one from within the EU and was even willing to pay a bit more, but it is mission impossible. Hope they will release it as a succeeder to another sub in the EU range.

150 pounds / 170 euros is a great price. For what it is and its quality there is simply no competition at this price level as most ones have dealbreakers for appearing like toys, not going deep in frequencies, not having a crossover knob or literally quit working.(For example: Had a look at the reviews of an Edifier sub that did everything right but switched itself off at lower volumes due to an automatic sensor)

I expect that this might so far be the only sub "in its price range(!)" that remains desirable on the future 2nd hand market or could perhaps legitmately raise in trading price over time.
