I hope both are with the Circuit Package?
Would you like to swap one of yours for my black one?
That would be Ebony and Ivory for you and Snowflake 1 and Snowflake 2 for me

Sorry for offtopic
Cheers squireHa, not to worry. I just thought it was a funny shift (puns come naturally) in topics.
Sorry for the detour in your thread
The newly announced Living Voice R80 appears to be a real winner. The stated design objective was to offer the magic of their flagship Vox Olympian horn in a considerably more affordable and less complex loudspeaker. Designed to be used with SE tube amplification with a sensitivity in the mid 90s should also help deliver the magic. The announcement stated the debut is slated for March 25 and 26 at the Audio Show Deluxe at Whittlebury Park. Enjoy!Thanks. Loving the small size and placing right in the corners so they don't dominate the room.
Looks like their other models with a fancier base.The newly announced Living Voice R80 appears to be a real winner.

Come hear the Living Voice R80's at their US debut at the Capital AudioFest,Not exactly, Morricab. Below are some details as well as a photo next to their OBX III. Estimated price is from 33-45 euros depending upon finish.
Members, I am not an importer reseller of this product but do find these big floorstanders very compelling for their high efficiency, tube friendliness and overall design objective to capture some of the qualities of their Vox series horns.
Quote given to Hi Fi Pig
Kevin told us: “We wanted to create a speaker that combined the lyricism, coherence, and innate musicality of the OBX-RW4, with the scale, dynamic range, and visceral thrill of the Vox Olympian. To reach our goal we chose a symmetrical mid / treble / mid (MTM) two- way driver topology in a reflex-loaded enclosure using two state-of-the-art 8’’ bass/mid drivers and 34mm tweeter. We set out on this path three years ago and here we are – the R80 is born”.
The past twelve months has seen Kevin and the team making painstaking incremental progress and seemingly endless iterative developments on both the cabinet tuning and crossover of the new Living Voice R80.
CABINET CONSTRUCTIONThe unique cabinet construction of the R80 is a development of what Living Voice have evolved for the Auditorium Series over the past 30 years and translates into this new design, being stiff, light, and diffusive. The R80’s form factor is clean and simple, relying on classic golden ratio proportions and formal relationships, making for what Living Voice say they hope is a timeless appearance.
SENSITIVITYAlthough official specifications are not yet available we know that the new Living Voice R80 Loudspeaker has a sensitivity in the mid 90’s, plus an “even and very benign impedance characteristic”. It has been designed to bring the most out of partnering electronics and plays to the strengths of single ended triode electronics. As with all Living Voice loudspeakers the precision calibrated crossover components are largely proprietary and are either made by hand in-house or by specialist suppliers.
