Italian made, meticulously crafted speakers with the factory designated stands. Finished, in the no longer available, graphite grey maple, these speakers are simply gorgeous. They emit a sound that's transparent, full, lively and accurate; they're small enough to be visually admired without being physically obtrusive. I bought them from a highly reparable audio dealer in Santa Monica two (2) years ago, he took them on trade. I never had the original boxes, but I will insure they're packed professionally for delivery, (which I'll happily pay for). Read the professional reviewers' comments, the Olympica I's are deservedly highly rated and well worth your consideration, let alone ownership.
