I bought these speakers in 2002 at an authorized von Schweikert dealer in NJ. They have been since then at my pet- and smoke free place in Lebanon, NH. I've rated them an 8 and set a low price because of age, but they work perfectly. I have the boxes, but I'd prefer a pick up at my place. Lebanon is situated at the intersection of interstates 91 and 89, a 2-hour, easy access from the Boston and Hartford areas. Don't hesitate to call me for further information (603-448-6568).
