I have a PAIR of vintage "Lansing Signature" speakers for sale. I am the SECOND owner. Best I can tell from my research, they're C37 "Rhodes" (possibly "Lo Boys?") from as early as the late 1950s. They feature the "030" configuration (D130 15" driver (Alnico magnet?), 075 'bullet' tweeter, and N2400 crossover) in 'vented' enclosures. They're 100% functional, and sound amazing. It would seem as though these are exceedingly rare, and highly sought after from collectors/audiophiles around the world. A pair of these in similar condition recently sold for 400,000 yen [nearly $5k U.S.]. Compared to ANY other set of 50+ year old speakers, they're in exceptional condition. After all these years, I could only find two blemishes, which I documented. (The black mark shown in one of the pictures is NOT deep, and could LIKELY be repaired by a trained hand. Please see extra pics for details.)
I'd love these to go to a loving home. However, PLEASE only proceed if you're ready and able to complete the purchase and take ownership of these treasures! **All reasonable offers will be considered.**
Thanks, and happy shopping!
PS: Considering the age and effort required to ship, this sale should be considered "As Is." I've documented the speakers as thoroughly as possible with the pictures. Bid with confidence.
