A pair of this Absolu!e Sound highly recommended component in the very attractive gray finish that is now discontinued, with their large, sound-absorbent pads on the bottoms. Magnetically attached grilles have never been used -- they are really attractive without them, as you can see from the photos. There are no flaws in the speakers' finish. Perhaps the best 2-way desktop speaker system there is, with near full-range sound powered by built-in biamplification. Incredibly versatile. In addition to a normal preamplfier, you can hook them up to portable music players, smartphones, docks, computers, music servers, distributed audio (like Sonos Connect), TVs, mixing decks, and musical instruments. Each speaker is complete in itself, so you can set it to be left, right, or mono. And did I say how good they sound? Included with them are the cool stainless steel stands that slightly tilt and allow you to swivel them for placement on a shelf or desktop. No blemish, conservatively rated. You don't see many of these come up for sale: here's your chance!
