Swiss Made Ribbon Monitor
Note: These are monitors with ribbon tweeters, NOT just ribbon tweeters - lousy new Audiogon interface/rules do NOT allow one to revise a mistake in the title (arghh...why not?) - anyway...
Beautiful looking and sounding Piega C2 monitor with proprietary Piega ribbon tweeter and brushed aluminum skin over birch plywood C-shaped cabinet.
Piega is one of the most highly regarded European speaker companies, founded in 1986 and is still producing some of the finest loudspeakers in the world. Unlike most other manufacturers today that produce their cabinets and/or buy speaker components in China, Piega produces its speakers in Switzerland and uses its own advanced proprietary ribbon technology in its tweeters and midranges. Superb Swiss handmade build quality.
I have barely used these gorgeous speakers, as they were a bedroom system that saw little use. Sadly, I moved to a new place and no longer have room for a second system. I’ve owned a number of great speakers, including Elac, Oskar, Martin Logan, Merlin, Revel, Quad, etc. but have not liked any of them as much as the Piegas.
There’s one tiny (1/8”) light scratch on one of the speakers on the front rail near the bottom, but they are otherwise without any marks/dents/etc. as far as I can tell.
Speakers come with original box, factory documentation, translated reviews, and flat round metal feet for placement on a flat surface (or you can choose not to use them if you put them on stands).
Would strongly prefer a local sale (SF Bay Area) so the both of us don’t have to risk potential damage from shipment. Buyer to pay actual shipping costs and any PayPal seller fees (2.9%).
Buy from a reputable A'goner and trustworthy individual (I've bought and sold tons of gear on A'gon - just not recently)

Review of the C2’s “big” brother, the C2 Ltd (C2 Ltd has the coaxial ribbon midrange/tweeter – the C2 has the same ribbon tweeter, but does not have the ribbon midrange):
