For sale is an excellent condition pair of original Shun Mook Bella Voce speakers. This is the first version that was very favorably reviewed by Art Dudley in Listener magazine. These use all Dynaudio drivers, and the 10" woofers are the original type with the foam surround, which Bill Ying of Shun Mook prefers the sound of. The surrounds, and all drivers, are in excellent condition. These are essentially a two owner speaker in the original condition as they came from Shun Mook, including original shipping cartons. There is a slight dimple on the inner side of the left speaker, obviously does not affect sound and not very noticeable with the textured epoxy finish.
Each speaker has 11 Mpingo disks and asymmetircally reinforced inner panels varying in thickness, as well as Original Cable Jackets. The speakers cabinets are constructed of birch plywood, for improved resonance and overall sound. A number of very good speaker manufacturers use birch plywood cabinets, including Audio Note, Shahinian, and Tonian Labs. These speakers are very easy to drive, in fact Gordon Rankin of Wavelength Audio had listed them as a favorable match with his single ended tube amps on his website.
In his review, Art Dudley compared the midrange to that of the original quad esl speakers. They have and excellent midrange, especially with female vocals, piano, and acoustic guitar. Each pair of Shun Mook speakers were extensively tuned by Shun Mook. Conservatively rated at 7/10, these are very rare and have been very well taken care of.
These speakers are located in Los Angeles, CA.
