Listing my Acoustic
Research Classic 30 speakers, Cherry Mahogany. I bought them brand new back in
1993, directly from AR in Canton, MA. They were my "dream
speaker" back when I bought them, much too expensive for a struggling
chef at the time and definitely too big for the studio apartment my wife
and I lived in (she thought and still thinks I'm nuts.).
I still have the
original boxes, I also have (2) brand new extra spare OEM tweeters, (2) brand
new extra 10 inch OEM woofers, and 2 Spare OEM mid-ranges. I bought all of
the spares just in case because I had planned on keeping these until I died.
8 moves later
including a move from cross country from Mass to Washington state and it's
now time to move on and sell my precious speakers.
The cabinets are
real wood, unlike most speakers built today which use vinyl laminate over
particleboard. The trapezoidal shape blends nicely with traditional and modern
decor; as well as discouraging people from setting anything on them! They stand
well over 4ft tall (52" to be exact), are 15" wide, are 16" deep
(with the grills on) and weigh over 150lbs each!
The front grills are
in excellent condition. The frames are undamaged and the grill cloth is nice
and clean. They even still have the original AR logo's. The cabinet bases came
equipped from AR with threaded inserts for use with carpet spikes,
I also have the original owner's reference
manual, sales brochure, and binding post
jumpers that I will include. High quality, made in the US, vintage AR speakers
are getting harder and harder to find; especially in this nice of condition.
Good luck finding a deal like this again. The ONLY reason I am parting with
them is that I am now moving to Sage Series Wisdom Audio speakers. Obviously
these are for local pickup only, no shipping.
