This center channel is in perfect condition; it is rated 8 for age only. I love Meadowlark speakers and own a pair of Kestrels and a pair of Vireos as well. I'm selling this speaker just because I am not doing home theater at the moment and have no place to put it anyway. It's in a lovely, cosmetically flawless ebony finish and sounds great. At one time I had an all-Meadowlark surround system with B&K amplification and it made for great-sounding movies. The Petrel comes in the original packaging with all the thick foam pieces to protect it, and includes the original owners manual and the grill sock (not pictured). Also, this Petrel can be biwired; not all of them come this way. Buyer pays actual shipping charges by UPS from zip 87501. Email with any questions.
