Are the enclosures finished with real veneer or vinyl wrapping?

What wattage do the upper part need?

That is real Rosewood.

And anything over 8 or 10 watts will be fine.

Thanks Mr. Richie for the answer, basically I love the story and aesthetics of those speakers and I'd like to put them in my living room but I want to at first power them with a second zone of my Pioneer Elite SC-85 which will allow me to use most of the inputs and will output a couple of channels in stereo mode with 135 watts each, so I was wondering if that'd work fine.

Also, I'm not sure how long ago were these created but technology changes by the day, any mods/improvements Mr. Richie can foresee on this set?

Thanks in advance,
Alex

when I had the OB7's,  I was driving them with a 7297  chip amp (rated  at 15 wpc but really about  10wpc of really  linear output)  in an  18 x 12  room,  easily enough   power....   great sounding speakers

Deal of the decade?   Now $999.
I don't have the original boxes so still prefer local pickup, but freight is an option and I'll have to cobble together boxes for shipping if we go that route...

These are very hi end speakers.  MA is too far to drive from Texas, but someone needs to jump all over this. 
For $1K???

Agreed S Clark.
I'm flying to Austin in March - maybe I could sneak them on in my luggage :-)

No, never been. Would like to though.  For a "high performance computing" conference I'm attending as a vendor (I work for Dell / EMC).

I know you really don't want to ship, but I am interested.
How far from the wall do these need to be placed?
Shipping would be to 91360.

Hi dvenardos,
The shipping is about $800 (boxed, shrink wrapped onto a pallet). If you are interested I can get an exact price.

Hey folks, some interest but the shipping price is dissuading any closing of a deal.
Dropping the price to $899, hoping that helps someone make the decision!
