Like new, amazing sounding speakers from B&W's *current line*. Details available at http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/Speakers/Home_Audio/600_Series/683.html.
I am the original owner and have everything it came with (receipt, original packaging, etc.). It is like new - I have used them for less than 20 hours. I think it is well within the warranty period. Due to weight and size, LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. I live in North NJ (07093) and am willing to meet you half-way if you are within reasonable driving distance.
From the website: "The 683 is the largest speaker in the 600 Series. A true three-way floorstander, ideal for both stereo or home theatre applications in larger rooms, where its timeless look allows it to fit into any interior. The imposing 683 is the genuine three-way speaker of the 600 Series, with a line-up of technologies and a level of performance that defies its entry-level place in the market. For large rooms, two 683s make a formidable partnership, either for stereo hi-fi or fronting a home theatre installation.
Deep, dynamic, bottom-end power is delivered by a pair of aluminium/paper/Kevlar® composite cone bass drive units. The 150mm Kevlar® midrange handles middle frequencies with its characteristic clarity and tunefulness, but, for the first time in a 600 Series speaker, includes FST cone surround technology for extra detail and resolution. The Nautilus™ tube-loaded, aluminium dome tweeter, featuring a new surround material to improve spaciousness and imaging, adds needle-sharp top end all the way to 50kHz and beyond.
The improvements to the drive units in the new 600 Series make it possible, for the first time, to introduce a minimalist crossover to the range. The use of components that are fewer in number but higher in quality – hand-picked in exhaustive listening tests – reduces the degradation of the signal significantly. So, whether you’re enjoying hi-fi or home cinema, what you hear is that much closer to what was recorded."
