Has anyone heard of neumann s series speakers or is this a scam? There is someone in my suburb selling a set and i can not find any information online about them except one website which doesnt really seem legit. They are not on thw neumann website.

 

 

Do you mean these ? ... If so THEY ARE WHITE VAN CHINESE JUNK and not made by nor affiliated with the renowned German speaker/microphone manufacturer of the same name

Thats the ones. Lol..

Someones selling them on gumtree for $300 with a no name projector.

I thought it was suspicious. One section of that website says diamond dome tweeters and another section says beryllium tweeters.

I was 99% sure it was a scam and 1% hopeful i had found the bargain of a lifetime.
Rrp $5999 lol

Can’t believe these “white van” scams are still around. Stay very clear!

I will contact neumann and send them a link to that website.

 

Don't bother, the Chinese white van makers have used so many big companies names on their gear.. Boston Acoustics, Rotel, Bose, Sony etc... 

 

White van junk has been around since the 80's.. It all started with a brand called Acculab 

 

Only the non hifi educated or gullible actually buy the stuff.

On aliexpress and dhgate you can buy fender and gibson replicas. The people making these guitars even give you the option of choosing a serial number. Its disgusting. Somewhere in china they have renamed either a city or suburb usa. So they now have a loophole to write made in usa on the guitars. Makes me angry thinking about it

It's the flipside to manufacturers handing their intellectual property to the Chinese and then whinging about fakes showing up in the market. You can't have your cake and eat it too

 

Solution:

 

Manufacture the items in your own country, employ your own citizens, contribute to your own country's economy and protect your IP at the same time.

 

But no the greedy corporate companies just want PROFITS $$$$$

 

The Chinese built a car that looked identical to a BMW X5, BMW spent millions of dollars suing said company and lost the case because the Chinese company had changed 1 curve on the body and the courts said it was therefore not identical to BMW's product.

Yeh have you seen the land rover copy? Its called a land wing. Its pretty funny.

As far as the guitars they use below par electronics in them. Its just aesthetically cloned. Which would not be too difficult to do so thats whats been happening. I just gey angry because i know certain people will start selling them on sites like ebay passing them off as the real thing

There are certain things you NEVER buy off eBay as you are guaranteed to be getting a fake....

I agree, not everypne is the same though. I actually once bought shampoo and the seller had refilled an old bottle with cheap shampoo. I couldnt believe it

 

A guy once paid like $50,000 for what he thought was a bargain Ferrari, turns out it was only a photo of a Ferrari and in his haste to win the item he hadn't read the listing properly... :lol:

 

Ouch...

My worst buy was a pop-shield I got for my microphone.

 

Image and description indicated it was a pro quality pop-shield and when it arrived, it was home made using the ring from a sewing kit, a bit of stocking and some coathanger.

 

I was not impressed.

One thing i have been liking on ebay at the moment is handmade interconnects from china. I bought some on a whim and they are fantastic. I jist ordered a usb cable from the chinese seller i have been using and he has seperated the ppwer line to go straight to a linear supply rather than getting power from the pc or streamer
