This is an excellent pair of DeVore Fidelity Gibbon Super 8's in two tone finish from 2009. Black body with the light blond front, known as Italian Ebony and Birds Eye Maple. Babied since I got them. Smoke free, child free home. Grills available and left off to allow the finish to "tan" evenly. I have boxes for a set of Gibbon 8's which were the same size. I also have the cone spikes as originally supplied. My rating is really right in between 8 and 9. There are two very tiny scratches on the right speaker on the side and are only visible if you get up close. Otherwise, they are perfect. I sold high end audio for many years and baby everything I own. I accept Paypal with confirmed address for payment. No international orders. $2700 includes Insured UPS Ground Shipping to anywhere in the continental U.S.
