These are great speakers that are really great performers. I have made a few comments about them in the forums (a long while back) and have communicated directly with the designer/owner of Gemme on how to get the most out of them. They are a terrific speaker to own!
There are reviews that claim they are SET friendly, I would not agree with that! In my opinion, they need about 50 WPC.
These speakers are BEAUTIFUL! I get comments from everybody who sees them as to their beauty and how well they fit into my room. Those than know music are amazed that they also sound so great. These speakers are very forgiving in terms of placement. While they perform their best with careful set-up, they don't fall off in performance like many other speakers if you put them up against the wall, too far into a corner or just put them where it would make most sense. This is a huge plus if you are living a situation where perfect placement isn't allowed.
I own 9 pair of speakers right now (Wilson, Thiel, Coincident, Vienna and others) and these are one of my top pair in terms of performance and satisfaction.
Condition, they are in very good shape, virtually no swirls on the high gloss piano black finish. I have the original boxes and original spikes, the grill covers and the jumpers. I also have a pair of soft covers for them to keep the dust off when not being used. Why am I offering them at such a great price? Simple, the dealer that sold them broke off one of the speaker binding posts and when noticed, he fixed it. In the process, he did it upside down (so now the bottom posts on one speaker where you would normally plug in the bass is now the highs and the top is now the bass - marked accordingly so no biggy. Since jumpers are used, it really makes absolutely zero difference anyway). But I got a kick-back as a result and am also passing that on to you!
