These speakers are outstanding in sound and beauty. These speakers have a granite shell which reduces vibration thereby improving sound quality. Whatever your front end and amps throw at these speakers will be accurately reproduced. They will definitely not disappoint. For reference see Sterophile review (https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/719/index.html). A brief description follows: frequency range 20Hz-25kHz; impedance 6 ohms; drive-units 1” tweeter, two 6” midrange, two 12” woofers; sensitivity 88.5dB/W/m (91 dB in-room); recommended minimum power 30W; height 46” width 15” depth 18”; weight 215 lbs/each. These speakers are in very good condition. The reason I give them this rating is that the packaging has caused some very minor damage to the highly polished granite. The speakers sit in the crates on their backs and the rubbing against the packing material has caused micro scratches on the back and other areas but not the front of the speakers which are in mint condition. The defects are typically only seen if looking at the speakers at a specific angle, not straight on. The speakers come with their own spikes. But I removed the spikes and had speaker stands made for the speakers (please see pics). My experience is that speakers sound better if you can sink as much vibration out of them as possible. So I placed the speakers, spikes removed, flat on the wooden stands to sink vibration. They sound even better if a sound absorbing platform like Symposium is placed between the speaker and stand. If you have wooden floors, I have brass spike protectors that I will give you.
Eggleston has specific recommendations for speaker placement. They suggest starting with the speakers 18” to 24” from the rear wall. The distance from the rear wall and side wall should be unequal. Lastly, the minimum distance between the Andra II’s should be 8’ (center to center). More detailed instructions are supplied with the speakers.
I am the single owner. Each speaker comes with its own crate and packing material (I will protect them from further damage). Speaker stands are included in the price. Shipping costs and insurance for the speakers are the responsibility of the purchaser. I will pay for shipment of the speaker stands. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thanks for looking.
