Approaching the first anniversary attempting to sell these Cessaro ‘Liszt’ loudspeakers, I never dreamt it would be so difficult, how the manufacturer can charge $191000.00 for a new pair is beyond me when I cant sell this immaculate pair for £35k.

Maybe that's the problem, the sort of stylish young chap about town who values their place in society isn't interested in pound land stuff. Lowering themselves to buy a pair of speakers for £35k might give the impression that they are the type of person who had to buy their furniture or (shudder) shop at Waitrose with the riff raff. Try putting the price up to £100k and see how it goes.

Hi

This is perhaps the wrong forum for this kind of speaker. The amount asked seems well below the current retail price but we, (talking in the name of the collective without the right to :(), have learned to build entire systems that shall sound better than a pair of the Cessaro at a fraction of the price asked ... We're talking about superlative systems covering 20 Hz to 20 KHz @ all SPL from a murmur to thunder-loud SPL at infinitesimal THD.
I don't think those regular and persistent bump will elicit much interest beyond the, now, customary jokes ...

My guess is that potential byers don't hang around this forum - or any other audio forum.

I don’t expect anyone here to buy them, but ASR is a major forum now, if you search for Cessaro ‘Liszt’ my ASR advert is very near the top.

Yes, you make about 70% of my Cessaro search results here and elsewhere :) Heavily discounted expensive model not selling for ages, that's not exactly creating a good Cessaro Internet brand image. My business side tells me they should have taken back the unsold inventory, no questions asked...

I don’t think Ralph cares too much, as long as the odd sale to the Far East continues , Cessaro have never sold well in Europe, but with the Chinese slowdown, eggs in one basket etc etc.
