MBL 111e Radialstrahler - Hybrid four-way full-range floor standing speakers, serial numbers 87327 and 87427. I'm the original owner, bought from MBL dealer, and they are in perfect functioning condition, and excellent cosmetic condition. They can be bi-wired or singly wired using MBL jumpers, included. Musical magic comes mainly from the midrange on up, and the 111e uses omnidirectional midrange and tweeter drivers that are identical to the top of the line MBL 101 MK2 as well as the MBL X-treme. I have moved on to a pair of MBL 101 MK2 and the only significant difference is in the low-end.
Note a 1/4" chip and 1" scratch next to the chip on the back of one speaker where it normally cannot be seen. Otherwise the piano black finish condition is excellent. Original shipping containers, user manual, spikes, jumpers, and invoice proving authenticity are included.
I will pay for shipping, insurance, and all fees charged by Audiogon and Paypal. These are fairly priced, so please don't be offended if I ignore low offers.
Here is an excerpt from The Absolute Sound Newport show report in 2013 citing the successor model 111f: MBL usually shows its big mbl 101 E Radialstrahler loudspeaker or its entry-level stand-mounted mbl 126, but rarely the mid-level mbl 111 F
hybrid loudspeaker. The mbl 111 F ($42,000) features a Radialstrahler
midrange and tweeter coupled to four cone drivers, two for the mid-bass
and two for low bass. The 111 F was driven by the new MBL 500W Corona
monoblocks and a Corona preamp, with a United Home Audio open-reel tape
machine on-hand. No other company gets such consistently great sound at
shows as MBL and Newport was no exception. Particularly with open-reel
source, the MBL system had remarkable resolution and transparency,
completely disappearing as a sound source. The mbl 111 F could be a
great solution for those who lust after the 101 E but don’t have the
room or budget.
