Sound Lab U-2 PX full-range ESL -- AMAZING! [Expired]
Here we have an amazing pair of Sound Lab's famous full-range electrostatic speakers from the "Ultimate" series, named for the ultra-rigid metal frames that reduce vibration. This is one of a very, very few pairs of U-2 speakers in the entire world with the new PX professional series panels (custom-made for me by Sound Lab at my expense).
The backplates (electronics modules) have been extensively modified, including the well-known "impedance modification," using top-quality parts to achieve the absolute best sound. I invested well over $1K just in the upgrades to the backplates (new mixer boxes, higher-quality capacitors and resistors for the crossover, exotic new transformers, etc., etc.).
For those not familiar with Sound Lab full-range electrostats, they are probably without equal in terms of clear, non-fatiguing sound with incredibly accurate timbre (tone color). If you've never heard Sound Labs before, the bass response alone is going to shock you at first and then make you grin from ear to ear!
Of all the Sound Lab speakers, the U-2 has the added advantage of being very easy to integrate into medium-sized or smaller rooms due to its size (28" W x 24" D x 71" H).
I am the second owner, and I have treated them extremely well in my smoke-free, pet-free listening room. Rated 6/10 on Audiogon's obsessive-compulsive scale only because the black paint has a few very small dings, which happily are invisible when you listen to music because they are toward the rear of the speaker, and which could easily be eliminated with a dab of touch-up paint.
Will ship at buyer's actual cost using the factory crates provided by Sound Lab (5 in all). Also available at buyer's option: the very effective and attractive "SALLIE" absorption devices that stand in back of the speakers. Designed by Dr. West of Sound Lab, these provide an easy way to tame the back wave and thus allow placement of the speakers closer to the back walls.
Any questions? Just ask! Price is very fair; low-ballers will be cheerfully ignored. PayPal welcome and adds the usual fees. Check out my 100% perfect feedback on Audiogon.
Thanks for looking!
