That's so tempting, do you know if they only ship to Germany? I am a bit lost on that site / German langage. They allow selection on any country but then object the address doesn't look right but eventually allow paying. A bit scared to order being not in Germant (but EU).
Not interested in buying that specific headphone but I tried a bit. Stopped right when they asked for birthday and nationality. Feel unnecessarily aggressive on privacy

It seems they only ship to germany, where they ask for the country they wanna know your citizenship, which is kinda ridiculously unnecessary.

They explain it on top: The recipient will need to show his/her passport and they need that data to see it matches. This is a phone company, maybe sometimes they ship stuff that could cause trouble if it falls in wrong hands (like copies of sim cards)? but i agree it is ridiculous.

or


926 for 690eur/piece

Half price, almost.

Full list https://www.homecinesolutions.fr/g/457-french-days-2022 . I checked around and it seems HCS is offering the best price.

If you are looking to build a home theatre, not just a hifi system, then considering buying the whole package from Focal. much better deal overall

And don't forget HCS has "confidential price" (for specific individual products), and quotes (if you buy combination of two ore more products). it's a small but nice additional discount which can offset their shipping cost

But this is for within France only, not?

Hell of a deal
I listen to those yesterday compared to the Focal Aria 926, Aria 936 and Monitor Audio Silver 500.
I didn't like the MA because of the emphasis on the highs that didn't sound natural to me.
But the Linton did really well, especially considering the price. I still prefered the Aria for the feeling of envelopment anf bigger soundstage.

Yay (as an user, and somewhat a fan, of Focal)
any measurement of this specific Linton ? they seem to have several "versions" (Heritage etc.)

It seems Elac Debut reference DBR62 is sold for 179euros in a german hi-fi shop.


It says it can be bought only in pair.
In white(with same buy pair restriction) costs 246,50.

It becomes more confusing, as a pair has a price of 498euros in the same e-shop:

My guess is that black pairof 179/unit is a returned pair with open boxes.
But I tried to translate every word of the page(as I don't speak german) and I did not find a remark that the product is used.

ps: if a german speaker has more clues can make post informing us

I don't see any indication that it refers to b-stock. Also, you can buy 8 for that same price, so unless they have unlimited b-stock.... Same strange pricing with the non reference: Price per unit 100eur, price per pair 279. (???)

PS: Kef R3 600/unit.... grrrrrrr

Maybe, if you are interested, the best would be to send them an email.

it is not uncommon (or rather, it is quite common) to have different prices for different colors. I believe that is not B-stock.

Indeed, but if you checked the 2nd link I posted they sell the black/brown pair for 498. So I don't think this makes sense.
Maybe, if you are interested, the best would be to send them an email.
I am not simply interested but actually ready to buy the speakers. I made a research during the previous period, bookmarked 4-5 hi-fi e-shops, and almost one hour ago I made the last check before pulling the trigger. I am 99% sure that the price of the black/brown speaker was round 250euros in the same e-shop 2 days ago. Best thing is to ask them as you say. But I think I will make the order and add a note to cancel it in case the speakers are used.
