Up for sale is a pair of Wilson Audio MAXX Series I in Desert Silver.
6/10: Overall and for the age they are in nice condition. Unfortunately they have a few chips and small scratches. Almost all are on the rear and rear edges/corners. Both bottom front edges have marks from left to right. One of the woofer modules has a few marks on the side right next to the grille.
The diffraction pads are close to the end of their life. They still feel solid, but here and there they start to crumble when touched. These can be ordered at Wilson Audio for a total of $300. The velcro to hold the grilles need to be replaced or re-attached. The grilles themselves are in great condition.

4/10: One of the top (mid/tweeter) modules is not working. According to the manual, it could be as simple as a resistor that needs to be replaced. The tweeter on that same module is not original and due to the whole top module not working, it could not be tested.
Wilson Audio has been contacted to order new resistors to trouble shoot the issue.
The price reflects that.
