Aerial Acoustics Model 9 with Sound Anchor Stands [Expired]


no longer for sale

Excellent operational condition including upgrades - Bybee Slipstream Quantum Purifiers internally installed on positive leg of tweeters, Cardas rhodium binding posts, and dedicated (i.e., made specifically for these speakers) Sound Anchor Stands (cradle base style) that are far more stable and superior to the factory outriggers.  

 

I will be as up front here as I can regarding the appearance.  The cherry veneer looks great and there are no issues with the veneer.  There are some minor marks on the finish of the cabinets that are what most would call small and, while they do not stand out in normal use, they are visible on inspection.  Most would say these are nice looking speakers, but they are not cosmetically perfect. There are no issues affecting the structure of the cabinets and they have never been dropped.  Grills, grill frames and all the grill-frame attachment-posts are in good shape with no broken posts and no holes in the grill cloth.   

 

The speakers sound excellent with all types of music.  They accurately and musically portrayed every upstream change I made to my system and they were always used with high quality amplification such as;

  • Clayton Class A M300s
  • Lamm M1.2 Reference
  • Acoustic Imagery Atsah - Ncore NC1200 monos
  • McCormack DNA-2 LAE with SMc Audio Platinum Upgrades

I am only selling these because I have switched to different Aerial speakers.  Two reviews are linked below;

  • http://studyres.com/doc/7741708/the-cutting-edge
  • https://hometheaterreview.com/aerial-acoustics-model-9-loudspeaker-reviewed/

There are other forum reviews out there and all are positive.

 

Regarding the sale;

  • Speakers will be shipped/delivered with original wood-reinforced boxes.
  • The speakers are large and heavy and to ship will include FOUR BOXES, two for the speakers and two for the dedicated Sound Anchor Stands.
  • I would prefer these to be "hand-delivered" to avoid problems.  
  • If the buyer can be patient with my schedule, it may be possible for me to hand-deliver these to locations such as Indianapolis, Columbus, Cleveland, and lower Michigan including the Detroit metro area, west Michigan, and most places in-between these locations. 
  • I will ship these but ONLY if they are strapped to a pallet and shipped by freight, such as FedEx Freight or similar.  
  • BUYER pays ALL shipping charges and MUST use the freight method presented above.  I WILL NOT ship these by standard Fed Ex or UPS and they are likely too heavy.
  • I am not being a difficult seller, but I am clearly communicating my terms because avoiding shipping damage and the associated problems is more important to me than selling the speakers. This practice is for the buyer's benefit too.  If you don't like the terms, don't argue, just move on.
  • I will only sell to Audiogon member buyers with good feedback and no negatives, and I will not sell to proxies for overseas buyers or first-time buyers.
  • PayPal is the only payment method and I WILL COVER THE FEE.
  • Eden Sound Bear Paw footers shown in some of the pictures are NOT included
  • Somebody is going to get a really great sounding pair of speakers that look nice too for a fantastic price!
