FS: NTL3, N3s, AV1RS
« on: 30 Oct 2016, 02:39 am »
I am putting my GR-Research speakers up for sale.

This is a 5.0 setup. Front/Left NTL3, Center N3s, Rear Left/Rear Right AV1RS.

All speakers but the AV1RS have No Rez, Sonicaps and Mills Resistors upgrades, Electra Cable Tube Connectors. All in roughly $3500 in to build these out. All Walnut Stained with Waterlox Original Sealer Finish.

Looking to get $2000 $1900 for all items.

SOLD Single NS3 - $400 375 + Shipping

SOLD AV1RS - $400 375 + Shipping


SOLD  N3TL - $1200 $1150 $1000 $900 for mains

Prefer a local sale to 97006.

Might consider shipping Centers and Rears maybe but probably not the mains as I have no boxing for any of these items.


The center channel and rears were built by Ruben in  2013.
The mains were not built by Ruben. I am trying to recall who built them. There are some small imperfections on the mains. The bases I sent back to them to redo and still not perfect with nicks, etc.
Also the black front pieces have a small gap in certain places.
All speakers have magnetic grills.

Here are some pics as well.

+1 on that.  Have a pair of N3s in the upstairs bonus room.  For now it's a 4.1 system.

Might have to do with shipping.

I don't think there are huge audiophiles in my area to sell locally.

Probably right.  That always is an issue (I'd have the same problem with something heavy).  I got my N3s via a trade (for MoFi bookshelves) and it was a pain to carry them up a very big flight of stairs (have high ceiling so it is like a flight and a half) and put them in place.  I toyed with the idea of using them in one of the downstairs systems, one of which I mainly use for HT (have 20+ year old B&W P6s as mains that I am the original owner) but has an amp and preamp (with HT Bypass) but the width of the bases of the N3s and no center channel dictated where they are now.  I just moved things around and have an old Oppo BDP-93 up there with hard drives with lots of files both CD quality and higher.

Speaking of shipping, there is a pair of LS6 on Audiogon right now, local pickup only. They're somewhere on the East Coast, I believe.

What a deal for a great  pair of speakers. For those who haven't heard them, the N3Tl's are fantastic  :thumb:

The FEDEX Office stores have heavy shipping cartons that measure 15 x 15 x 48 for $10 each. You would need some additional packing material, and their transportation fee for two packages that size will not be cheap.
But it would make possible to ship to a faraway wanna-be purchaser.

1 inch styrofoam from Lowes/HD/Rona is my fav packing material for speakers.  Completely surround the speaker with the foam and barring a 5 story building or a forklift fork you are good.

Styrofoam is good and you can take it further if you wish...  All of our finished cabinets go out first wrapped in a tight cling/plastic to stop any rubbing directly on  finished surfaces.   We then  try to suround the cabinet with at least  3" of  styrofoam on all sides... even the flat packs have  lots of styrofoam  . We typically have the styrofoam cut on a hot wire cnc machine to  get a  perfect fit

And nope, shipping is not cheap, looking into a freight company may  be a good opton too.... try someone like YRC  etc.. For packages that size , you'll get charged on weight alone and may not need a pallet
