I'm in a BIG dilemma:
Since august, or maybe a bit earlier I had arranged from someone I knew from the Internet, to make custom monitors for me, for a set price. The specs are the following:
The price includes an amp with the following thingies:Originally Posted by Specs of the monitors
and a hardware 1/4 EQ.Originally Posted by The amp
All this for 850 euros + shipping.
All this ok.
The further info was that:
1. I had 14 days to test them (since I would never be able to listen to them), and if I didn't like them, I could return them.
2. All cables included.
3. No money upfront. I would pay the full ammount to the delivery guy.
Well pretty much this.
This whole deal sounded great, to tell you the truth, and from the specs and what the guy was telling me (plus I knew him a bit "internet" wise from before) it seems genouine and fine!
Now it's the 21st of Oct, right?
This whole deal was stalled, and stalled, and stalled.
First he lost his business partner so he had a bit of a problem, but he would keep his promise.
Now today he told me that he could not afford shipping, so I would have to pay for shipping and the rest later one.
Needless to say, I am tons worried, and I'm seriously thinking of not buying from the guy.
And this is where YOU come in:
WTF do I do?
I have the money (more or less 1000 euros) since Aug. and nothing to do with the money.
I do think that custom made will be a much better deal than any factory deal, but where do I search? How do I try? What do I do?
Any people you know (and trust)?
And monitors at such a price that will suite me? I need something rather good (not heaven), and I write orchestral stuff mainly, so I need something more than the usual rubbish floating around the net and the net stores...
Please help me...
PS. Sorry for the long post.
In the meantime I got a lovely new keyboards and the LynxONE both of which serve me great...
