I've owned these speakers for 3 years, and used them lightly as they were in my vacation home. They are in perfect condition, almost new. I would rate them 9/10 just because they have been installed and used. There is a small manufacturing defect on the top glass of one of the speakers see picture. Seems that a small area is missing paint under the glass. They come with the Sonus Faber custom stands for this line, included in the listing price. I have the original double box packaging for the speakers, and the stands will be carefully packed separately. These speakers drew rave reviews from the hi-fi press, as the first really affordable Sonus faber speakers. Designed in Italy and manufactured in China, they represent excellent value and a steal at the listed price. They present a light amplifier load, I used them with Naim Unitiqute 2, rated merely 30W per channel into 8 ohm (admittedly Naim power), that combination produced awesome sound.
