CES Demo model. This is the extremely rare Opus 2 AVC center, not distributed in the US. Check the Wharfedale site for info. Virtually new, flawless condition. Speaker is actually marked an Opus 2 AVS, which is identical to the AVC save for the orientation of the wire plugs on the back. Item is described as an on-wall speaker, but works perfectly well situated on a stand, either horizontally or vertically. Better frequency response than the standard Opus 2 center!! Extraordinary center channel speaker!! Color is gorgeous satin black. Conservatively rated an 8, this is a 9+. Better still, item comes with two spare NIB grilles. Great relief to have extra grilles on a rare item! Total of 3 grilles included, 1 superb and two literally new in box. Can ship in original box at buyer's expense, or can repackage safely for cost savings. Paypal users add 3%. COD and pickup ok too.
