This is a pair of Revel Ultima Studio Loudspeakers in good used condition. They sound awesome with a huge crystal clear sound stage and plenty of bass for even the most demanding music. The Studios have two tweeters, one front and one rear firing ambient tweeter, two 8" bass drivers as well as one 5" midrange driver. Both tweeters are user adjustable via controls on the back of the speaker. A simple internet search will show gushing reviews of the Revel Ultima Studio. Here are the concluding remarks from Kalman Rubinson of Stereophile:
"The Ultima Studios have given me unabated pleasure as well as utility—their accuracy and transparency across the audible range make them powerful tools for assessing other components and sources. Inferior sources are revealed for what they are, and one must be prepared to hear just that. But this also means that the Studios let the music's humanity and joy shine through into my listening room. Highly recommended."
By the way, Kalman Rubinson liked them so much he purchased the review pair!!! When you hear them you'll understand why. They sound completely natural and effortless.
Cosmetically they have a lot of flaws too numerous to picture. There are plenty of smudges and scratches as well as what appears to be flaking paint all noticeable up close. However, from a distance of five or six feet they look great. Kind of like my ex girlfriends!!! Come on, that was pretty good! I rated them a 5/10 on Audiogon to be within their parameters but that seems a bit harsh to me.
We do not have any of the original packaging so we are asking for local pick up only for these Studios.
Included with the speakers are the reversible carpet spikes/hard floor protectors and the owners manual.
