    My new NS-2000's arrived yesterday from HiFiDo in Japan. Even with shipping the price was very reasonable, and the condition of the speakers is excellent.

    The biggest concern I had was a woofer magnet shifting. The superb packing by HiFiDo - double boxed and the speakers themselves well protected - makes that scenario much less likely, and fortunately the speakers arrived undamaged.

    Thanks!

    I need new speaker stands as the NS-2000's are much too large to use with the stands for my NS-1000xw's. I really like the design of the SPS-2000. They look elegant in either African Paddock or in black like Deaf_in_Left has for his NS-2000's.

    Wasn't one of your family members that made your racks? Room for a custom set of speakers stands??:D
    African paddock or even Santos mahagony would look like the speakers...

    Listening impressions?
    How do they fair against those infinities?

    Too soon to post listening impressions. I can say that they are not disappointing me.

    Great :bigok:

    Is that a silver UC-1 / B-1 in the back? Rare original or refinished?

    Looking fabulous, Mark! If I may be rude enough to ask, how much did they set you back? (feel free to PM answer if you prefer).

    The reason I ask is that NS-1000s are just a bit too small for my room, and NS-X10000s are too rare and expensive! I'm thinking NS-2000s might be the answer...

    Very nice, will you be switching the Yamaha's for the Infinities perhaps for the sake of continuity?

    Thanks Mitkraft, they are stunning.

    Thank you Nick.

    Yes. The B-1 has been refurbished by Vint Age, and is spectacular.

    I'll send you a PM. The price was very reasonable.

    Thank you.

    I'll swap out the IRS Delta's for the NS-2000's this weekend when I have some help to move them. I have no intention of ever selling the Infinities.

    Thank you. I hope (and expect) the NS-2000's to be even better than the NS-1000xw's which I think are very fine speakers.

    Yeah, I did not think you would :)
    Yamaha speakers are nice but those infinities are in a different league.
    I am sure the yammies will hold their own. So curious to hear your thoughts.

    Really nice setup!

    I was on a waiting list for NS-2000's and HiFiDo contacted me.

    I recommend getting on HiFiDo's new arrival list.

    Follwing Mark's PM about the price of his NS-2000s, I went off to Hi-Fi Do's website for a look around. I didn't find any NS-2000s but I did find a pair of NS-1000MMs in their junk shop for $165 and couldn't resist them!! :D
