The market for exceptional speakers is so saturated with wonderful options that my attempt to sell these at a price that reflects what I paid for them is useless. So I am taking them to auction.
No, you won't find them reviewed in the major HIFI journals but you also won't find a better creation for a floor stander of this size: the treble and midrange are superb, the depth the speaker can go is quite impressive, and the workmanship is stunning. These are not lightweights.
I'll leave it to you to research the speaker. Unfortunately you won't find much, but you also won't find a speaker at this price that is of this high quality.
If you have questions, please write. I am a 60 year old audiophile who takes perfect care of his possessions. I am a non smoker. I purchased these from Don Better in Shaker Heights.
Local pickup is fine.
