***PRICE REDUCED***NEED TO SELL***MAKE OFFERS!!!***
I am the original owner of these wonderful speakers. They are in very good condition, from a child and smoke free home, with a couple of minor dents and a barely visible scratch on the top caps. The dents and scratch are from a couple of moves over the years, and hence the 7/10 rating. (See Photos) [The dents in the photos are much more dramatic than they actually appear.] I have the original boxes for safe shipping, and can ship via truck line if that's your preference. If picking up, cash only. I also have the original spikes, but no owners manual. Full disclosure...the spikes are well worn but usable. They will probably need replacing in the near future. Also, the socks have been replaced and are about a year old. They are clean with no pulls.
***********PLEASE NOTE THE OUTRIGGERS IN THE PHOTOS ARE NOT PART OF THIS SALE************
These speaker are in perfect operating condition, and everything you may have read or heard about them is true. You can see the full specs below or type von schweikert into your favorite web browser, as well as many reviews. Of note is the review from SoundStage. Check it out!!!
My reason for selling these wonderful speakers? I have moved to low powered SET amps and they don't have the power to make them sing like my former solid state Krell amp did. As good as these are, I need to make room for their replacements that mate better to my new amps. They have given me many hours and years of beautiful sound, and I want them to do the same for their new owners.
Please contact me through the Audiogon website, and thanks for looking.
