    Another Fyne Deal from Mike - F502SPs are ordered

    I just finalized my order with Mike for a pair of F502SPs in Piano Gloss Black with IsoAcoustic G3 Footers.

    The Good - Not made in China, made in Scotland
    The Bad - I have to wait for them to be built and shipped from Scotland to USA.

    These speakers are a Birthday present from my wife and just maybe they will get here by December 27th.

    I am sure glad I took my wife to the demo since she doubled my budget after hearing the SPs vs the plain 502s which we set out to buy.

    Stoked for sure but now have to forget about them for several weeks.

    Thanks Mike!

    Those are very attractive in the piano black finish. High WAF. May your wait time pass quickly.

    I know there is a container en-route now that hopefully has your pair in it. There are only Walnut 502SPs in next shipment.

    Can't wait to hear what you think when they get here.

    Re: Another Fyne Deal from Mike - F502SPs are ordered

    So I made a deal and have a sale for my beloved Clearfield Continentals. I will be sad to see these beauties go but glad to have found them a good home at a decent price. von Schwiekert made fabulous speakers even under the Counterpoint name. The buyer has been sending me Western Union deposits and was supposed to come on December 26th but just let me know he will be coming to pick them up this Sunday at noon. This all works out Fyne since they won't be in the way when the new ones arrive, and I will have 2+ weeks to forget how good they sound with no ability to A-B them when the Fynes arrive.

    Current ETA is just about XMas and hopefully by or before the 27th, my Bday.

    Stoked!

    The Clearfields are gone. Sad to see them go but can't keep everything.

    Doing temporary duty right now is a pair of JM Labs Tantal 509s and sounding great with the Lux.

    Thanks Randy. Last Monday or Tuesday, the word was another week to 10 days out from the distributor. I have no idea for sure.

    Re: Another Fyne Deal from Mike - F502SPs are ordered

    So after a good long wait, and some unexpected obstacles along the way, there appears to be a pair on a truck somewhere in or just out of Texas heading to PA.

    ETA is the 19th if all goes as expected.

    I am also ending up with a pair in Walnut and not the originally ordered Black.

    Thanks Mike!

    Re: Another Fyne Deal from Mike - F502SPs are ordered

    Turns out UPS is as whacked as the Distributor. I got tracking to say by 9pm Tuesday. Then I got a call last Friday to arrange delivery. When I called back all I got was a machine so I left a message. I tried calling all weekend and all day Monday and left several messages. Finally Tuesday morning someone answers but tells me I can't get them Tuesday because I never scheduled delivery, oh, and that they had no messages from me. So the woman tells me it will be Wednesday between 11-5, so I took the day off from work to play. At 10am yesterday I get a call from the same woman telling me she put the wrong date down and all the trucks were out for the day and I would not be getting my delivery. It is now planned for today between 11-5 and they have been sitting 15 minutes away since Sunday night.

    It's really sad that so many people cannot handle the simplest of jobs. I wonder how most of them wipe their own butts sometimes.

    Hopefully a better update tomorrow.

    Sometimes you are get the option of having them held at the regional distribution station (local hub) for pick up.
    I've found this is usually faster.
    Hope they arrive soon and safe.

    I dont have a vehicle to do that with, or enough strength to offload a 205lb skid by myself, but good idea for smaller packages.

    Re: Another Fyne Deal from Mike - F502SPs are ordered

    The only delivery group that seems to have their ducks in a role, my opinion only, is Amazon Prime. Just yesterday I watched a big Prime truck ( 2 workers) with a hydraulic left gate deliver my neighbors French Door Refrigerator .

    So i did a little checking, Amazon owns 60 big cargo planes, bigger than the national airlines of some developing countries. It runs 60,000 of its own delivery trucks, not counting the 100,000 now on order. And, perhaps most startling, it says it now delivers 60% of its packages through its own drivers., wow !

    Absolutely stunning finish on these. They used the same exact pc of veneer on the fronts as they have the same grain and knots. Packaging was great and protective. They also build these in sets, the Serial # is the same with A and B.

    Spun Keb Mo More Than One Way home on a cold start. Man these have bass. I had to give up my Audiophile Card because I disengaged Line Straight and backed off the Bass on my Luxman.

    Re: Another Fyne Deal from Mike - F502SPs are ordered

    Thanks everyone!

    I only have about 8 hours on them so far but already can her the changes from just out of the box with the bass. The upper end is exactly what I was looking for and once the bass settles in and tightens up, they will be fully what I was looking for. I get the detailed and clear top I had with my Clearfields and the full Bass I get from my Dyns. Both my wife and I have already discussed hearing more detail and clear percussion that we have not heard before. It sure is odd getting used to the tweeter in the middle of the mid driver. It messes with your head when the grills are off. Nice how they hang on the back with magnets when you want. My Dyns did the same but with pegs and not magnets. Vocals seem to be the best aspect right now as each singer appears right there.

    More to come as I get them broken in more but as of right now, they are killer speakers for the money and the Walnut is beautiful. Craftsmanship and build quality are more than expected at this price range.

    I just noticed that they used the same veneer on all sides as in the next slice. The grain is identical on all sides of both speakers. Talk about a Matched Pair, I never imagined they would be like this.

    Thanks Joe!

    My wife was never a Grills Off Gal so I set them up with grills on. Last night I took them off. While we were sitting there listening, she commented that they even look great without the grills. We can do it both ways.

    They look good both ways but as an old Toolmaker, I like to see the machined parts and the drivers look cool too.
