Picked up the HiVi D3.2F (Wood veneer, without grooves) about a month and a half ago, so I thought I'd sign up here at AVSForum and show them off

Swan speakers may be difficult to come by in the US, but it seems even moreso here in Australia. Besides two retailers/distributors that I can think of that sell powered Swan speakers, I can't really seem to find any that sell their passive hifi/home theater speakers. So imagine my surprise when I was just sifting through the local online classifieds (Gumtree), and found this beauty! Now, I was no stranger to the quality of Swan speakers, having been a proud owner of a pair of D1080MKII 08's and a pair of H4's, so that very day I rocked up to his house with cash in hand, and I managed to get them for < 500AUD. I'm sort of new to buying second hand audio gear, so I'm not sure how much of a bargain that was, but overall, I'm happy with the price and the product.

Apparently he had them imported from HK some time ago, on the advice of his brother that lives there, and frequents the HiVi store. Makes me wonder, how many other Australians have been lucky enough to experience Swan's floorstanding speakers. Really wish they'd have more a presence here, I imagine they'd do great.

I had my 6.1's hooked to an Emotiva XPA-5 for a while, which sounded great. Next time I set up the system they will be hooked to my Emotiva RPA-1. I highly recommend their amps. Price to performance and customer service is hard to beat.

Hi I'm looking for a pair of Swans M6005F speakers new or used in mint condition only. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm waiting for Chris from Cleveland Plasma to get back to me with the price and availability.

Add sides to my Swans?

I have some older Swan Divas that have sat unused and I am finally finishing my basement HT.
I have a center C3 and four 2.1s All of these have the small tweeter on the top.
I am going to move from 5.1 to 7.1.4
I have a HSU sub. 10"

I was thinking I could still use the C3 as the center and use 2 of the 2.1s as the L/R and the other 2 as the back L/R surrounds.
So 2 questions:
1) Any suggestions for the sides?

2) Any suitable ideas for the ceiling speakers for Atmos/DTS:X? (I am close to drywalling the room so if I am putting something in the ceiling I need to address the sound isolation issue now.)

After all, it would be a shame if I had to buy all new speakers!

Paul

Hey all,
I ill very appreciate if I can get some information’s from you guys.
I live in Hungary, and in our country is the brand Swans almost absolutely not known.
I have a chance to get a Swans F1 system (F1F, F1C, F1R) in a very good price (~3700$).
Do you have any experience with these loudspeakers? I have actually a JBL LS HT system, with Marantz AV7702 and Emo XPA5 Gen2 and with 2 SVS PB2000 subs. What do you think; it would be an upgrade in compare to my actual system?
Thanks in advance!

Can get a deal for the Swan Diva 5.1s for $120. These still regarded as good speakers although few years old?

I would buy them in a heartbeat!! I have been on the lookout for a pair of 5.1's for years and have yet to come across a pair. IMO that is a steal...get them and go home happy;-)

So I bought my second set of speakers from Chris at Cleveland Plasma. My first was F2.2ht and yesterday I picked up a pair M6005F for music listening. Chris is the man if You are looking for Swan speakers. M6005 look amazing I think even better than F2.2. I just set them up and was surprised how heavy they are. I will let them break in but i'm already impressed how they sound and it should only get better with time. Anyway I will post some pics of these beautys.
