Lightly used, maybe 1-200 hours, demo pair of Snell C7's in Black finish. Tremendous speakers simply taking up a little too much room and are a little out of place in my own home. Great condition, one scuff on the rear of one tower, pictured below. Other than that just some dust from sitting and very slight discoloration on the jumper. Will be sold / shipped in original packaging. Apologies in advance for being an abysmal photographer - if you're interested and would like more detailed/higher res shot please don't hesitate.
Could not really find any recent transactions to compare too so starting at $5,500 which is $3,500 off their retail. Shipping will also be at buyer's expense.
Description and Specs are copied and pasted because honestly, someone has already said it far better than I could:
The goal, whether for music or film, is to transport the ingredients of realism, that is, texture, dimension and presence, to every seat in your living room. For 30 years Snell Acoustics has hand crafted speaker systems to envelop the listener with incredible bandwidth and precise imaging. The new full-range C7 tower extends this Snell tradition of musical realism. Designed by Joe D’Appolito Ph.D., Snell’s chief Engineer, the C7 boasts dual 4.5-inch midrange drivers mounted over and under a 1- inch SEAS silk dome tweeter. This configuration, called a D’Appolito Array, is famous for providing a startling three dimensional sound stage. The bass is anchored by two 8-inch aluminum, side firing woofers, “Force Balanced” by their back to back placement. This arrangement filters unwanted cabinet resonance for more detailed and authoritive bass. Designed for the real world of unpredictable room acoustics and placement considerations; the C7 is flexible to place and beautifully hand finished in black painted walnut or natural cherry. The narrow profile real wood cabinets are veneer matched as pairs, while the grilles and solid aluminum top plates are available in black. For a perfect match to your room we can paint, stain or wood finish Snell speakers to compliment any decor.
