Bowers & Wilkins B&W 685 BW Bower very good condition [Expired]


no longer for sale

Very good condition B&W 685.  Sonically like new.  One speaker has some very minor surface scratches on it's side.  See picture #6.  You have to look closely at the right angle to see them.  Otherwise speakers are in excellent condition.  Drivers and sound quality are like new.  These were an auxiliary pair in a spare room that were rarely used.  Retail price was $650pr, blue book is $463.81.  The 685s include the grilles, binding post jumpers, a heavy-duty ELAC box.  Box fits them snugly and is much more stout than original.  Speakers are double bagged in both a cotton bag and a plastic bag.  Wrapped in 2+ inches of foam on all sides.

I have over a decade of 100% positive feedback and I'm a fast shipper.  Shipping and insurance is $70 to anywhere in the continental US, but I'll include it at my asking price.  I'm also covering the AudioGon express check out and/or PayPal fees.
