A pair of SC-Vs has come onto the market near me, but there seem to be some cosmetic issues with them. Specifically, the oak veneer seems to be lifting on the sides of the speakers. I have heard of this happening to other Dunlavys but, fortunately, it hasn't happened to any of mine. What causes this and can they be repaired without a lot of work? This particular pair is serial number 290A/B. Any idea when they were manufactured? They do have the cone upper-mids.
Are there any other things I should ask the seller or weaknesses I should look out for? He says that they sound just fine.
BTW, he is asking $4000, but in light of the veneer problem, does this seem reasonable keeping in mind I will have to move them about 400 miles? Any other thoughts will be much appreciated.
Lastly, my dedicated room is about 17 x 22 x 8. Is this room big enough for them or should I stick with my SC-IVs?
Best wishes to all,
