Excellent example of Danish manufacturer Dynaudio’s legendary sound, build quality and attention to detail. Center channel speaker finished in a beautiful furniture-grade Birdseye Maple that has been extremely well cared for in a smoke free, pet free environment.
Grille has been left on throughout its life, keeping all dust and contamination off of the sensitive tweeters. There are no marks or scratches on the cabinets at all. The only visible flaw is that since the grilles were left on, the exposed portions of the cabinet darkened somewhat, which is not visible with the grilles in place.
The Contour T series is an excellent range of speakers for home theater or two channel listening. They produce a neutral, non-fatiguing sound with the capability (when paired with a good amplifier) to handle the dynamic range of today’s challenging material.
Performance-wise, the speaker is flawless. It has never been abused, pushed hard, or had the cabinet opened and performs exactly as Dynaudio intended. Original boxes is included, however the original manual and foam port plugs are not. Specifications follow.
The speakers are available to demo for serious parties on appointment. They are currently set up with a Bryston SP1 / 9BST, with a DVD / HDCD player and Rega Planar 3 (upon request). Bring some CD’s and vinyl!
Please do not contact me unless you are seriously interested, are not going to low-ball me, and are not going to feed me stories / scams.
I am happy to ship these via FedEx ground / home delivery at buyers expense. If you are interested, I will provide you with a shipping quote. I can deliver these in San Francisco for free, the greater Bay Area for fuel compensation.
