LaHave Audio Avaza RAAL Italian Ebony hand made in Nova Scotia, Canada by designer Jim MacCleave and former RF Engineer Fred Conlon.  LaHave Audio is a little known but growing company who has been quietly designing superbly musical and accurate loudspeakers for 30 years.  The Avaza RAAL have been my defacto reference loudspeakers for the past couple of years, and possess a combination of musicality, tonal balance and see through transparency few can rival anywhere close to this price point, which is typical of LaHave’s loudspeaker design philosophy.  The Avaza design features a time and phase aligned array utilizing a RAAL ultra high bandwidth true ribbon dispersion tweeter mated seamlessly to a Seas Prestige Full Range Papyrus fiber 8" driver, air core inductors and premium resistors.  The RAAL tweeter may be used, or may be completely disabled, depending upon personal preference and room acoustics.  The full range speakers completely disappear when playing within the room and possess zero box coloration’s, they are nearly the definition of transparency.  Timbre, tone, vocal presence and clarity throughout the midrange frequencies is simply superb and transients lightning fast with visceral bass impact.  The RAAL wide range ribbon (dispersion application) possesses an airy, electrostatic like characteristic, due both to its extraordinarily low moving mass and wide frequency response (2kHz - 100k Hz Flat).  Condition - Age roughly 3 years -  Rated a conservative 8/10 cosmetic condition, but closer to a 9/10.  Operationally rated a 10/10 condition, no issues whatsoever and were never over driven, stored in a pet free/child free/smoke free environment and driven exclusively by David Berning ZOTL vacuum tube amplification.  Includes wooden shipping crates custom built by LaHave Audio.  Total shipping weight roughly 450lbs (2ea. containers) Pick up welcome, I am located roughly 35 min. from downtown Chicago.  Please call with questions.  219.933.8115
