For Sale: Audio
Physic Classic Compact loudspeakers. I purchased these as "store
demo" speakers from an authorized Audio Physic dealer for $1,500.
Retail price is $2,000. They look brand new; I see no blemishes whatsoever.
As I started listening, it became clear that they had not even been fully
broken in yet. So I suspect they were not used much more than taking them
out of the box and putting them on stands to look pretty.
Dimensions: 6.7" x 9.5" x 12.5". 6.5 kg
I have Audio Physic Tempo III floorstanding
speakers in my main system, which I adore, and so grabbed these when I had the
chance for my den / "man cave" system. Unfortunately, my den is
almost cubical in dimensions and I did not anticipate these small speakers could
possibly have the low-end that they do. I have never heard a bookshelf
speaker with the depth and command of these speakers. They sound like
other small speakers I've had -- Celestion 3, Totem Mite -- but with a
subwoofer hooked up. In a direct comparison, they seem to have a bit more
punch than the generation-older Tempo III. As a piece of engineering,
they are truly astounding. But alas, way too much low end for my small
cubical space. It may be that I will not do better than my Mites until I
have a larger room.
And so, I need to part with these. They
are really lovely speakers, in perfect condition, and they come with two sets
of grilles -- traditional cloth covered and exposed. Both sets of grilles
fits very snugly. As you can see in the photos, they are in marvelous
condition -- though the lighting on the black ash finish is not particularly
revealing. The eighth photo shows some residue from where there were felt
strips on the bottoms, apparently to allow them to slide on a hard surface
(bookshelf?). I peeled those off as they do not make a good contact with
speaker stands. [No idea why Audio Physic would even include such a
thing. Also, I noticed that at least one of the little logo badges seems
to be a little bend / not perfectly flat. That's how they arrived, and
you have to look very closely, but I wanted to mention it as they only
potential defect I can see.
Includes owner's manual and other inserts, as
well as the original box and original packing materials. Shipping is included
in bid price, within the continental U.S. -- elsewhere actual shipping cost
overage would apply. [I'm assuming $60-$90 fully insured for most of the
U.S.] Thanks for looking, and if have any questions, please ask.
All reasonable offers will be considered -- please let me know where you are as
shipping can vary a lot depending on location.
