I am the original owner having purchased these speakers brand new from an authorized US Sonus Faber/Sumiko dealer (full documents will be furnished for any future service requirements). These speakers are less than six months old and are in as new condition. Absolutely no cosmetic or operational issues. The Amati Violin Red is a deeper color and more beautiful than previous models. Photos were taken with grills off as these have never been installed. These are truly wonderful speakers capable of reproducing any type of music with resolution, transparency, dynamics and most important musicality. See the great new review in the March 2012 issue of Stereophile. I have owned the Stradivari and much prefer the Futuras. These come with all original grills, accessories and packaging. They will be shipped on a pallet via motor truck freight within the continental US. Inquiries may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
