Exemplar Audio XL-1 single driver loudspeakers. This is the pair used at Newport 2015. I purchased them directly from John about 18 months ago. These are 93 db efficient with an 8 ohm load. The bass is surprisingly deep and they are very musical and easy to drive with a SET amp.
I originally purchased these for a bedroom system, but ended up using them in my main system for 18 months.They held their own in an $80,000 system. I'm selling because I own 3 pairs of speakers now. Over the years I have owned quite a bit of Exemplar Audio gear. The common thread with all of John's designs is that they are all very musical and punch above their price class. I still use all Exemplar interconnect and most of my power chords are Exemplar. The XL-1 speakers are more musical than many speakers I have owned in the past. What makes these speakers sound great is John's proprietary modifications to the drivers. You will not get stock drivers to sound this good. That's where the value comes in with John's speaker designs.
There is a small scratch on the front of the left speaker which I took a close up photo of. Also, there is a chaffing mark on the left side of the left speaker which you have to extremely close to see. Overall, they look really good and sound great! I will pack them very carefully and double box them. They will ship in two separate boxes. Each box will weigh 42 lbs and measure 18” x 18” x 28”. The stands are not included and are not for sale. Local buyers are welcome to come by and listen. Please check my feedback.
Thanks for looking!
