I ordered these a few months ago and finally received them about three weeks ago and have less than 2 hours on them. I made one mistake, Jim suggested that the Surround One would fit my listening preferences better and I didn't listen.
He was correct. These are absolutely wonderful sounding, accurate, clean (cleaner sounding than the Surround One), but a bit more forward in the upper midrange through treble (the Surround One is a bit laid back). I prefer a bit laid back for my listening.
So my mistake is hopefully someone else's gain. They will be shipped with all the original packaging, grills (never unwrapped), and birth sheet. They are curly maple with a black finish, which in the picture has a tan tinge, but in real life is gray/silver. Also, the contrast between the edges and middle is much greater in the photos. I am asking $1,000 plus actual shipping costs which will be about $50 in the CONUS. I am located in the San Francisco Bay Area for those interested in a local pickup.
Thank you for looking.
