This is the Acoustic Energy AER1 mk3. Rarely seen on the market. A fully redesigned model for the brilliant original AE1 20 years ago. Highly engineered and uncompromised design, one of the best sounding monitors next to the original Sonus Faber Electa Amator mk1.
Acoustic Energy is proud of the 24-pound speaker enclosure. The reflex port is newly located at the rear to eliminate audible turbulence. The MDF cabinet's internal walls are lined with anti-resonant steel plating with strategically placed tensioned steel cross braces said to reduce cabinet distortion to the vanishing point.
1.26-inch "Ring-Dome Radiator" tweeter featuring a neodymium magnet. This "custom-built and Acoustic Energy designed" doped fabric diaphragm tweeter features a metal chassis, which is said to be directly interfaced with the aforementioned alloy baffle for low vibration.
Fascia constructed of a polished 10mm-thick aluminum billet (that's almost a half-inch thick) that looks great and is claimed to serve several functions. First, it offers an acoustically inert platform from which to launch the waveform. Second, it acts as a heat sink wicking away damaging thermal energy from the mounted drivers. Extremely smooth and detailed with a robust and fast sounding bass.
Seldom seen for sale, in absolutely mint condition and has been unused / storage for well over 8 years approximately. There is a soft dimple (NO DAMAGE and Does not effect its performance) since it was there when I purchased it around 9 years ago. Simply trying to be as transparent and clear as possible.
The speakers is one of the best monitors out there. Stunning reviews globally and has a sonic “elecrtrostatic” type of resolution as reviewers agree upon.
Retailed for US$3500 to US$4000 pending finish.
This is heavy and weighs well over 50lbs packed for the pair. Shipping to US and Canada is $135 and buyer is responsible for shipping cost and any applicable duty and handling fees along with Paypal fees. Original box and packaging is intact and fair but I will double box for added protection.
NO trades please. Thanks again.
