Terrific Avalon Ascendants (v2), I am original owner. Excellent condition 8/10. The dark walnut finish has darkened up a little bit with age, so the finish behind grills is a wee bit lighter than the exposed wood. You can just make this out in the pictures where the grill is removed. (I kept grills in place as removing them added a touch of brightness I didn't care for. Avalon recommends using the grills.) Of course, includes original Avalon spikes. Handled only with extreme care, there are no nicks or scratches anywhere.
Just over 2 years old. Wonderful Avalon sound, capable of throwing tremendously deep and wide soundstage. Maybe not a hard rocker's speaker if you play your music at very high volume, but if you like jazz, acoustic, or classical you'll be in heaven. Female vocals, too, have that "just right" quality that'll make you wanna do bad things to her! Did I say seductive?
John Atkinson thought these made up one of the best sounding systems at the RMAF in 2007. A TONE AUDIO review can be read here: www.avalonacoustics.com/pdf/ascendant_tone08.pdf
I have original shipping crate and can use my company's freight discount to ship anywhere in the contiguous lower 48 states. Crate weighs 275 lbs, so these are not travelling UPS. Liftgate service would be needed unless you have access to a shipping dock. Buyer pays shipping costs. I can deliver in Seattle metro area.
