Triangle Comete Anniversaire 2-way monitor loudspeakers. -
We are Ember Audio + Video, a hi-fi shop in downtown Winston-Salem, NC. Today we have a very special pair of monitor loudspeakers from Triangle: the 30th Anniversary edition of their celebrated Cometes! These 2-way speakers are a delight, as their grand yet nimble presentation of music is exceptionally detailed without ever fatiguing, partly thanks to their horn-loaded tweeter design. This is a special edition of the Cometes, with a beautiful piano-black finish and chrome accents.
These engaging speakers were 2013 Stereophile Recommended Components, we have found them to be incredibly deft and able to capture the most subtle nuances in any source, with a silky-smooth high end and tight, responsive bass thanks in part to the front-ported design.
"The Comètes have a typical Triangle tone and delivery: tightly controlled, focused and up-front. Spin any genre of music and they get straight to the point.
They're like a boxer who repeatedly jabs into your midriff. With Radiohead's High and Dry, every guitar strum sounds extremely purposeful."
We are selling these fantastic speakers at 30% off retail for $1,200, they are normally $1,800 and at this price this is a fantastic grab if you are ready to own some fine French engineering.
They are in amazing condition, barely even broken in and have been our demo models for only a few months. There are a few marks on the bottom from stands of course, but no major flaws. Stands not included.
Why we are selling these lovely things?
Ember has come to it's natural end, as both partners have other, really lovely opportunities to pursue - and so all of our demo gear will get sold off eventually. We're happy to float any offer that's fair, but we aren't trying to cut our own throats in the process and are debt-free so it's all just eventual good news for us and the people we do business with. With that in mind, we're easy going and will work to make sure you are barking up the right hallway, as it's not all about making money. Our shop was service and education focused - and we aren't planning on stopping now. Reputation and honor matter a lot, and we'd like to make a few more folks happy before we exit.
Yes, they'll have to be shipped of course - unless you live close enough that we can deliver (100 miles from Winston-Salem, NC, give or take) or want to pick them up. Buyer pays shipping in this case, although we'll be happy to handle logistics if that's helpful and have a lot of experience solving weird shipping issues.

We're clearing out a whole showroom of stuff so keep your eyes peeled for a whole raft of big things, little things, baubles, widgets and such. We're happy to answer any questions you have but let's limit them to audio, love, robots and sandwiches - our areas of expertise. If you ask us about child-rearing or ponies we'll give you terrible advice anyway and no one wins. Yes? Yes.
