This pair is in immaculate condition. Just purchased from original owner couple weeks ago. My listening room proved to be too large for these monitors. Absolutely no blemishes in the finish, including the bottom. Grills are also in near new condition. I doubt that a pair in better condition could be found. They were rated 9 by the original owner but I'll rate them at 8 as a second owner. These were highly rated speakers by Stereophile and other hi-fi publications, and will compete with nearly any new stand-mounted speakers made today. The next owner will not be disappointed. I have the original box, manual, and rhodium jumper rods. Buyer pays shipping and paypal fee. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thx.
