Excellent full range speaker from Finnish maker Amphion. These are the Creon 2 with the Nomex mid range driver. This speaker looks as good as it sounds. Cherry finish is on all 4 sides. Side firing woofer can be positioned so that woofer is on either side, depending on room acoustics. Wave guide tweeter. This is one of the best speakers I have owned. Very detailed and transparent. Excellent bottom end. Small footprint so it's easy to place in room. Open port in rear can be used to dampen bass or there is a switch in rear to reduce bass. I bought these new in December 2010. Dimensions are 42" X 13" X 6". Weight about 65 lbs. Rating is very conservative, speakers are like new. no issues, non smoking house. Can ship but prefer pickup in Atlanta area. Could consider trade for interesting preamp or integrated with pre outs of similar value w/ remote..
