I just posted an ad in the classifieds, but wanted to give a heads up here for anyone who might be in the market for a pair of Ulysses speakers in pristine condition. With a great deal of reluctance, I am selling mine.
I bought these about six years ago from a gentleman who had them for only a few months. I had them shipped directly to Lou for the all-poly capacitor upgrade before they were shipped to me. I have had them ever since as the centerpiece of my system. Of course, they are every bit as beautiful and musical as their reputation suggests. I really hate to see them go. These are the ultimate music lover's speaker, easy to drive, and gorgeous to behold.
These are done in quartersawn white oak and come with the bases and grills. If you live anywhere near western North Carolina, you are welcome to come and inspect them and hear them in my system. I have the original boxes and all packing material from Daedalus, but would prefer not to ship them if it can be avoided. If they do need to be shipped, I can work this out with the buyer.
Given how rarely these come up for sale and the incredible, enduring quality and musicality of the speaker, my asking price of $8000 seems fair, though I will entertain all serious offers.
I will include pics as soon as my iphone cooperates with uploading them. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
