Hi all, up for consideration is a rare pair of Stax ESTA-4U electrostatic speakers. These are self-biasing, only need to be hooked up to an amp to play. Known more for their headphones nowadays, Stax also used to make ESL, this being their most compact model, desktop use possible. Sounds wonderful, possesses the characteristic effortless nuance and transparency of electrostatics.
Very nice overall condition, minor wear and a bit of discoloration of the white trim. Since the panels don't have dust protection, they sometimes buzz very slightly. Expected and completely normal behavior given the design. I've found it goes away with continuous play and is not noticeable with music on.
Comes with the required cables with DIN connectors at the speaker end and original box. I have scans of the manual and will include a set of printouts.
I've yet to transact on Audiogon but I do have online trading feedback at Head-Fi and eBay (http://www.head-fi.org/classifieds/feedback/index/user_id/82693, http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=yaluenliao)
Everything will be packed securely in another box for shipment. I plan to ship tracked through Canada Post. Cost will be $46 to Canada or $120 to USA, insurance available for an additional $20. For other destinations, please contact me for a quote. I can also ship UPS or Fedex on request. Offers welcomed. Feel free to message me with any questions at all and thanks for looking!
