Meadowlark endowed the Kestrel 2 with a Peerless composite cone woofer, a Vifa ring radiator silk dome tweeter and a unique transmission line loading scheme that yields an extremely inert enclosure while simultaneously allowing the speaker to play deeper bass and avoid a ported enclosure's phase issues and lack of control. The Kestrel 2's crossover uses only a few very high quality parts, wired point to point with Tara Lab cable and top quality silver solder.

This particular pair of Kestrel 2's was purchased by me from a dealer as a NOS pair (new) and are finished in an upgraded, gorgeously stained Santos Mahogany hardwood. They are in "as new" condition and you will not find a nicer pair anywhere. I would guess they have less than 250 hrs on them. They are immaculate. My lack of skill for picture taking does not do this finish justice.
They will arrive packed securely in their original shipping boxes complete with their grilles, adjustable spikes and owner's guide.
I would like to sell in the Chicago area, but will ship at the buyer's expense in the U.S. only to the lower 48.
No trades and no lowball offers please as I won't respond. I would prefer to deal with audiogon members with feedback. Please contact my personal email: email@example.com with any questions or offers.
New retail was $2400 (with the upgraded finish). Asking $1300
