For sale a new in box pair of Lumenwhite designed and built VAIC Signature speakers. I bought these unused in original boxes. These had been sitting idle for over 10 years in a heated warehouse. I evaluated these for roughly 20 hours. This model was second from the top of line in a series of speakers made by Lumenwhite for Vaic that were specifically designed for use with triode amplifiers.
Internally wired with Synergistic wire these speakers also featured active shielding. I have never used these with this shielding but any 24V 500mA wall wart with the appropriate plug will work. Biwire terminals with jumpers included. Excellent quality posts.
Speaker specification and details: * 2-way Absorber Vent System * 1" Ceramic Tweeter, 7" Ceramic Midrange and 7" Nomex Kevlar Woofer * 4 ohm impedance * 93dB Sensitivity * 10-200 Watt Rec. Amplifier Power * 3 KHz Crossover Frequency * 35Hz-35kHz Freq. Response * 10.2 X 15.7" X 43.3" * 83.8 lbs each
The side panels look to be real wood or a very good veneer. The black portions of the speakers are a brushed black aluminum. No internal dampening material is used in this speaker (per the design philosophy of Lumenwhite). Extremely easy to drive these speakers performed well on amplifiers ranging from 15 to 50 watts per channel in my listening room.
When using S.S. and tube amplification I preferred tubes but both worked very well. These should mate extremely well with the typical 300B or 845 amplifier. I used these speakers with a 32B (300BXLS) amplifier and thought it was a great combination. Essentially these speakers are extremely dynamic and nimble, although I wasnt troubled with hyper detail. Bass was superbly tight and responsive. Cabinet is very well designed, handsome and well braced. Far superior to the thin walled resonate cabinets of most speakers in this price range and others which are far more expensive. This is not a speaker which is going to lull to sleep by making everything sound the same, but doesnt typify the "hi-fi" sound of some designs with ceramic drivers. I could easily live with this speaker in my room.
I can think of no other speaker for my asking price that will even come close. I am willing to drive up to a 90 mile radius of Zip 52726 to deliver or meet for drop off. I suggest shipping on a pallet but can discuss all options with potential buyers. Price includes Paypal fees but not shipping. Questions always welcome!
