The YT video attached to the Ebay ad is a master class lesson on how wrong setup any Carver Amazing or AL-III, with toe-in this ribbon offer a poor soundstage similar to a cone boxed speaker.

Any Carver Amazing must be setup with zero toe-in and no recliner at all, just the minimum to the speaker stay upright and full free space around.

Those are very cool-looking.  There are so many speakers available that I have very little clue as to
how I'm going to make up my mind for my next 'main' pair.  Well these are sold and in Laredo Tex anyway.

See if there are audio shows in your area and listen to the type and size for you needs.
For me, speakers are the biggest variable in the system and you should take your time and find the ones that sound right to you.
There may even be an audio club in your area.
Have fun.

Lake Worth is a couple of hours for me.  If I had a place for them (too big for any of my systems with the room size and furniture), they would be an easy purchase.

It says in the ad that high humidity will cause buzzing.  Perhaps that is the reason for the sales in TX and FL?

It's only 95% relative humidity here in Virginia.  What could possibly go wrong?
