This listing is for one pair of Usher Dancer CP-8571 II Floor Speakers speakers in one owner condition with orig boxes.
Usher’s three-way Dancer CP-8571 II is a dead-serious high-end
speaker that offers innovative design, Rolex like construction,
exceptionally high-performance drivers, and most importantl, sound so
good that it easily competes with American and European speakers selling
for thousands more.
Founded in 1972, Usher Audio Technology has
become well-known throughout Asia for its speakers and high-quality OEM
driver units. Usher drivers feature a proprietary technology called
Symme Motion, which is said to give the company’s speakers highly
symmetrical long-throw excursion capabilities and the ability to play
with low distortion at both high- and low-output levels. Usher’s
president, Lien Shui Tsai, hired Dr. Joseph D’Appolito as product design
and development collaborator. Tsai defines the overall speaker
configuration, chooses drive units, and oversees enclosure design, while
D’Appolito takes responsibility for crossover design and speaker
voicing. This melding of the minds yields products with a magical sound.
The Dancer is highly focused, thanks largely to its Beryllium tweeter
that supplies gobs of high-frequency and upper midrange detail without a
trace of edge or glare. Similarly, the speaker’s 7" mid/woofer can
resolve extremely fine textures and nuances, yet offers enough power to
capture explosive transients and enough reach to handle upper-bass
frequencies with authority. I wouldn’t have thought a 7" driver could
sound so agile and versatile, but this one tracks complex wave forms more
faithfully than most. Finally, the Dancer’s
low-resonance/low-diffraction baffle plates contribute to the sense of
focus by allowing listeners to hear exactly what the drive units have to
On recordings such as Philip Hii’s acoustic-guitar
transcription of the Chopin Nocturnes [GSP] that capture natural hall
ambience, air, and fine details, the Usher presents delicate overtones,
subtle instrumental resonances, and small finger and string sounds so
realistically that you would swear the performer was standing directly
across the room. On closely miked recordings like Patricia Barber’s
recent Blue Note CDs, the Usher has a deliciously intimate, personal
quality; musical details just appear as a natural and balanced part of
But the Ushers also have sufficient resolving power to
handle large-scale orchestral works, remaining composed even when
orchestration becomes dense and complicated (on Mahler symphonies, for
example). Together, these characteristics allow you to savor fine
details in recordings much like the way a magnifying glass lets you
appreciate small textures you can’t ordinarily see in everyday objects.
The only downside is, once you grow accustomed to the Dancer, most other
speakers sound either out-of-focus or etched and exaggerated.
