Lifelong audiophile. These are the best-sounding speakers I've ever had the pleasure of owning. Among others, before the Aerials I was listening to Von Schweikert, Sonus Faber, Opera, B&W, Acoustic Zen and several others. The Aerials are the best. Most natural sound, fast, articulate, balanced, never bright, and no artificial bass 'bloat'. If you love music, you will most likely love these as well.
So why would I sell them then? Because they are simply too much speaker for my smaller living room now. I'm going to return to a pair of stand-mounted monitors.
These are the birds eye maple version. Very appealing to the eye, and nice narrow front profile. They are in very good to excellent condition, with the only exception that there are a couple of tiny holes in the black grill cloth. You can't see them when they're on the speakers. If you use the speakers without them, it doesn't matter anyway.
Each speaker is 47"h x 18"d x 9"w. Height is at the rear, and width is at the front. These are not light, so I greatly prefer local pickup. My suggestion if you're in the SF Bay Area is come and listen to these (have to be an Audiogon member with good feedback), and then I'll help you box and carry them to your vehicle. Each speaker in box weighs about 150 lbs. Please note that the shipping calculator is just for one box (one speaker). This is why local pickup is best. These have brought me many hours of musical pleasure, I hope they do for your as well. Any questions, feel free to ask.
I'll accept Paypal plus 3% for the fees. Otherwise, cash at purchase is preferred. Thanks and enjoy the music!
