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
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
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

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