1 Pair of Aerial Acoustics Model 6 floor standing speakers with the optional bases in black satin piano finish. These speakers are less than 3 years old and have 4 months remaining on the 3 year transferable warranty (original sales receipt included).
I am the second owner and recently upgraded to a pair of ATC speakers. Up until the ATCs these speakers were my favorite, having bested a few challengers. The Model 6 has a small footprint and is front ported so placement close to a rear wall is not a problem. They do require some power, 100 wpc would be best.
I would rate the condition as good. The optional bases help to prevent tip over but not enough to prevent one speaker from tumbling onto some Christmas decorations in December. The pictures show the damage on the top side. I used a furniture marker on it but am sure a better repair is possible because the finish is just paint. A couple pegs that secure the speaker grill broke but the grill stays on with the top 2. There's several scratches and swirls on the satin paint but the front is scratch free I replaced the factory jumpers with some high quality wire. Not sure what I did with the jumpers but the wire will be included.
No Boxes but I am good at packing and already have shipping boxes. Local pick-up and audition is welcome.

The Aerial Model 6 is a high performance 3-way column speaker similar to the Model 7B but with a single woofer and a smaller cabinet. Its sound is transparent, open, and accurate, with precise imaging and crisp bass. Dynamics and power handling are high.
The Model 6's smaller size, slender width, and extensive bracing reduce coloration and improve imaging. Two 2" thick walls and an isolated wool-filled midrange chamber further reduce coloration. Precision tolerances and the same high quality components as used in larger Aerial products enhance performance and insure consistency. Lean, articulate bass in combination with the 3 forward-facing drivers and a front port allow placement near walls without excessive bass in situations where the preferred placement out a few feet from adjacent walls is not possible.
The Model 6 continues the design philosophy of other Aerial speakers. The woofer was developed specifically for the Model 6. It employs a large vented magnet, a long-throw 40 mm diameter coil, and a cast magnesium frame. Bass is quick, dynamic, and clear. The critical midrange is handled by an unshielded version of the highly acclaimed Model CC3 midrange driver. Midrange is natural and well resolved. The tweeter is Aerial's exclusive, highly refined 10T tweeter. It provides delicate, open, extended highs without harshness. The bi-wirable network is built on a large glass epoxy circuit board using high quality components and wiring throughout.
All cabinets are mirror-imaged matched pairs using the finest veneers finished to a very high standard. In addition the veneers are book-matched for symmetry on each side. The finish quality is exceptionally high. The optional stands allow tilt-back and are highly recommended for critical listening. They improve clarity especially on wood floors while increasing lateral stability.
