What was the issue?

My silverbacks did take a while to break-in; you're going to really love them

I'm a patient man

All issues have somewhat resolved.

First, there were supposed to be 3 packages. 2 speaker crates, and 1 accessory box. The accessory box (grills, manuals, etc) was no where to be found. I assumed it was tucked in one of the crates, but no!.

I thought the previous owner didn't send them to the dealer. But, there were 3 tracking #s and they all got delivered. The dealer said he never got the 3rd package. I was freaking out a little bit at this point, because the speakers were shipped 2 months ago. After some searching, the dealer found the 3rd package

Second, there were 6 missing screws at the back. Turned out he was testing the speaker and didn't want to put all the screws in until the test was completed as there are a dozen or so screws for the back plate.

Third, one of the binding posts got slightly damaged. It wasn't during shipment because the outer box and plastic wrapping were intact. No functional issue, just cosmetic.

The dealer was very courteous and was very apologetic. He shipped the 3rd box with screws within 24 hrs. The binding post can't be fixed easily, so he compensated me for the damage. I wasn't expecting something like this.

All in all, a great dealer to work with

All the dealers I know that are associated with Shindo and/or Devore are top class. They take care of their customers.

Glad all is well now.....

Good thing is, they are not as big/heavy as I thought. I will try to set them up ASAP. If not, I will email Dale to rescue me.

Since I had not the foggiest idea what you were talking about Tommy, I quite naturally did a google search and I do agree that there may be some issues . . . but, they do look big and heavy to me . . ..

Just hooked the Silverbacks to the main Shindo system. With >200 hrs, they sound at least as good as a fully broken in GM. More relaxed actually. Imaging is on par if not better then the stand mounts. I feel there is still room for improvement as I run it in more, especially in the bass area.

I will be going over my CD/SACD one by one. Photos will have to wait since the room is quite messy at the moment.

Doug.......That's funny. I bet you don't get away with trying to touch the Silverback tweeter, either. . .
