The Aerius i is the updated and improved version of the original Aerius. LIKE NEW condition! These speakers have not been use for the last 3 years. Back into music once again and making upgrades. Beautiful oak finish free of any blemishes. Non smoker environment! Never damaged or needing repairs.
Owners manual, floor spikes and power cables included. Currently I can only locate one of the original shipping boxes.

Conclusion from Stereophile!
Other than the humongous Statement system, I've heard all of the MartinLogan range under more or less familiar circumstances. It may surprise some of you that, notwithstanding Dick Olsher's enthusiasm for the Quest Z elsewhere in this issue, I feel the Aerius to be the most successful speaker design yet to come from this Kansas manufacturer. Within the limitations to be expected from its cost and size--fundamentally a relatively limited loudness capability--it is a superbly musical speaker with a surprisingly extended bass, an uncolored, detailed midrange, a transparent treble, excellent dynamic contrast, and superb soundstaging. It does lack HF extension, and the lower mids are a little thickened in absolute terms. However, the Aerius has the capability--rare in affordable speakers--of being able to grow as your system grows. It certainly wasn't embarrassed by being used with the mondo-expensive Levinson monoblocks,
The Aeirus and Aerius i marked a turning point. They nailed the recipe, winning major accolades and loyal fans in the process. Revisiting these speakers only reinforces their excellence. Need a great anchor for a burgeoning high-end system? Look no further. -Jeff Dorgay
