While this pair of speakers possibly dates back to the 1990's they appear to be in superb condition and are still packed in their original shipping cartons.

Renowned for providing the best in "American HiFi", sound reviewers at the time commented on their excellent bass and mid-range response.

With the current trend to take a step back from digital sound to the truer sound of yesteryear these speakers could well be an excellent match for playing vinyl.

Technical specifications:

Recommended Amplifier: 20 to 250W

Questions and answers

Hi, seems as though they are still in the packaging will you ship to Christchurch and any chance of a buy now? Thanks! b******d (579 579 positive feedback) 4:31 pm, Tue 14 Mar
PS Sorry - can't consider a 'buy now' as bidding has started. 9:43 am, Thu 16 Mar
Regarding the power rating: 20 to 250W. Does it specify recommended Watts RMS ? i*********t (559 559 positive feedback) 12:18 am, Thu 16 Mar
Thanks for your interest. Sorry, haven't been able to find any 'RMS' information on these speakers. 9:45 am, Thu 16 Mar
Seller Comment: As these speakers are still packed in their original American manufacturer's cartons we're happy to ship them anywhere in the country. However as they are quite big (2 cartons, each weighing about 18kgs, dimensions approximately 94cm x 41cm x 30cm you may want to check with your local couriers/transport people on the likely cost (maybe even as a 'back load' on a furniture truck?) 9:52 am, Thu 16 Mar

Seller Comment: That mark on the left hand speaker cover is from a damp cloth when I wiped off a scuff mark - should disappear when dry. 11:30 am, Thu 16 Mar
Hi. Any chance your coming to Dunedin in the near future. t***4 (202 202 positive feedback) 12:05 pm, Sun 19 Mar
Hi tupz4. Thanks for your question. I am due to come down to Dunedin some time for a medical procedure at the hospital - but still no indication from the DHB so can't say when this is likely to be. Sorry I can't be more helpful, Cheers Dick 4:12 pm, Sun 19 Mar
Would you be able to bring the speakers with you. I don't mind waiting a while and paying after auction ends. Cheers t***4 (202 202 positive feedback) 4:27 pm, Sun 19 Mar
Should be able to - took a quick measure and looks like they'll fit in the car OK. Good luck with the auction!! 5:47 pm, Sun 19 Mar
