PMC XB2 PMC Subwoofer
This subwoofer is pictured under the center channel and has seen very limited play, possibly now 50 hours but less than 60 hours and spent most of its time packed away in the factory boxes in a climate controlled environment. Only recently set up again in a temporary room for the purpose of allowing a potential buyer to audit the system and experience the true performance of this system. This speaker offered is in " very good " condition. I would rate the Subwoofer as a 8 or 9 only because I am very picky and there is some type of light marks on one edge and would not want to misrepresent anything! Freight fee is lower 48 only. As we had no qualified buyer for all six speakers I am now breaking them up in to separate auctions. This is MC's development of the successful PMC MB2 with increased dynamics and LF performance. These large full range speakers from PMC justly deserves the label of ‘no compromise’ by industry leaders and audiophiles world wide. You will find these exact speakers in several of the most world renowned studio's around the world. Together they make a world class theater front end. Shipped in their original factory boxes and properly secured to a pallet to minimize the possibility of damage. Or possibly personal delivery within 500 miles for a fee. Please Note: The center speaker Pictured is a specially created and matching MB2 studio center channel monitor. This is an extremely flexible 3-way monitor which has found its home in the most varied of environments. The next auction will be the front Left two (MB2 & XB2) and Right two (MB2 & XB2) speakers will be next. Again, total offered in this listing " One Speaker". Thank you in advance for your time and consideration Possibly, creative offers considered for all six?

Wilson Audio Duette Silver
Wilson Audio Duette Loudspeakers Price: $12,500 USD per pair asking 5995 Great condition perfect working order, original owner manual etc. small scuff on lower right section. Prefer local pick up in Norther NJ Wilson Audio Specialties Sound Stage Review Conclusion For audiophiles who like big-speaker sound but are limited in terms of space or placement options, the Wilson Audio Duettes should be on their short audition list. Their flexibility also makes the Duettes an ideal choice for the audiophile who may move from time to time and doesn't wish to abandon well-loved speakers. Not only can they work in a small room, but they are also easily able to fill even a medium-sized listening room with superb sound. Beyond their impressive bandwidth and remarkable resolution, the Duettes made listening to music exciting and enjoyable. I looked forward every day to coming home to listen to discs -- both new and old. Ultimately live music is the standard by which audio components must be judged. The Wilson Audio Duette comes closer to bringing the speed, weight, and energy of live music into a listening room than any other similarly sized speaker I've heard. That's high praise indeed. ...S.

Scansonic MB-1 Stand-mount Mini Monitor - created by th...
Loudspeakers from Denmark, created by Michael Børresen, designer of the renowned Raidho speakers.We have all three Scansonic models (MB-1, MB-2.5 and MB-3.5) in our showroom. Call or email for an appointment. Come see us at the Newport Beach Show and win a pair MB-1. The MB-1 is a stand-mount, two-way mini monitor. The main goal was to create a small speaker that does what it does really well. The reflex port is placed in the front and allows for placement near the rear wall. It uses special inlays that reduce noise to an extremely low level. While the speaker is small and stylish, the music performance is lively bright and bold, with a bass performance that defies its compact size.The MB-1 are available in black-silk and white-silk, the price is $2300/pair, the speaker stands are not included and retail for $1000/pair. We are authorized dealer in California (customers without local Scansonic dealer can also purchase from us). REVIEWS:Michael Lang, STEREO magazine (Germany) Mai 2015: "...a compact whirlwind! Lively, with the finest resolution, easygoing in the positioning and not too picky about the amplifiers used with it or the other environmental influences. A very successful debut..."Sven Bilen, Jan. 2015, concluded: "...have I heard better speakers than Scansonic MB-1 for this price? No. Do I want a pair of MB-1? Yes. This is really something you need to consider if you are looking for some really good stand speakers where the price is not sky-high. Here, you get a sound picture you will immediately like, and it all just feels sooo right. A big applause for MB-1!" Check out the entire review The MB-series features the same good solid, two-way binding post. The feet are machined from aircraft quality aluminum and can be adjusted to level the speaker. For added rigidness, Scansonic added a carbon sheet to the top panel; this, paired with extensive internal bracing, makes the cabinet inert and silent. Listen to what Michael Børresen himself has to say about his new creation:Having worked with Raidho speakers for more than 12 years, I found myself faced with a completely new challenge when I was asked to design a new range of high-performance speakers for the Scansonic brand.From the start, I was very focused on building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, I also had to be aware of the long heritage and the Nordic design tradition of the Scansonic brand. This time, the task also came with a budget and a desire to create the very best possible within financial limits.It was clear to me from the very beginning, that some core techniques from the Raidho speakers would be of importance: The speakers had to be designed around a ribbon tweeter that works with at super lightweight diaphragm that is sealed around the edges to allow for a seamless transition to the midrange region.Furthermore, they needed to be designed and developed with a speaker driver with a ridged, pistonic-type membrane.WEIGHT LOSS FOR RESOLUTION TRANSIENTS AND SUPERB LEADING EDGESThe MB ribbon tweeter has a membrane with an extremely low mass. It is formed by a Kapton-aluminum sandwich that is only 20 um thick, and the resulting mass is app. 0.03 g., which is approximately 50 times less than any conventional textile, ceramic, beryllium or diamond dome. The lower mass translates directly into higher resolution and less material coloration.WEAVED CARBON CONES FOR STIFFNESS AND LOW COMPRESSIONFor the MB-series, we have developed a ridged, dustcap free, carbon membrane. By carefully optimizing the shape and stiffness, we have succeeded in making a very quiet woofer that blends beautifully with the ribbon tweeter. The woofer has an overhung magnet system, with long linear stroke and excellent bass performance.More information on our website: www.highend-electronics.com

Langerton Configuration Holograf - hand made in Germany...
We're very proud to introduce a new German brand to the US and Canada. Langerton evolved around Norbert Heinz, the renowned loudspeaker designer.The Configuration Holograf is Langerton's smallest loudspeaker and the current entry model. It's a phase-corrected Compact-Speaker-System with wide and precise spatial imaging. Listening with closed eyes gives the impression of a far bigger system. Factory lead time is currently 3-4 weeks.REVIEWS:Greg Voth, The StereoTimes (April 2015): "...the Langerton Configuration Holograf is a great speaker worthy of audition by anyone with a moderate space looking for a smaller profile speaker… or just those mildly curious. They played very well in our good-sized loft with a 13 foot ceiling - that’s not an easy feat. My wife agrees that the Holograf is perhaps the one speaker she would select to replace the ET’s for a smaller speaker in our loft… even at the $6k price point. When you give the phase-corrected Configuration Holografs some personal time, you’ll appreciate each persons’ involvement in bringing these small miracles to market. Highly recommended..." Check out the entire reviewHiFistatement.net (July 2014): "...speakers with huge musical competence that entices the listener to continue listening for hours. Not only do they 'play well' with any type of music, they are exceptional with everything. That is, everything except poorly-produced source material – that is delivered without mercy... Speakers for demanding listeners!”Specifications:80 W Long Term Power Handling250 W Short Term Power Handling86.6 db Sensitivity46 Hz - 22 kHz Frequency Response6 Ohm Impedance13 kg Weight (each)25 cm Width x 35 cm Height x 38 cm DepthFinish: Piano lacquer, black or whiteLangerton from Germany is a very new and at the same time a very old company. New, because Langerton just started in 2013. This year’s Hifi-Deluxe show in Munich was Langerton's entry into the market. Old, because the head of research and development, Norbert Heinz, has been one of the most brilliant minds in the speaker industry for about 30 years.He is the founder of the loudspeaker manufacturer ASCENDO and left his former company last year to concentrate again on what he likes the most - research and development. Norbert Heinz asked Walter Langer and Andreas Krebs - they know each other since 30 years, and worked together for 10 years on several projects - to set up a no-compromise production facility and to take care of a showroom, sales and marketing. They were very happy about Heinz's confidence in them and they liked this challenge because music was their first love and they are all maniacs in their quest for perfection - Langerton Configurations was born.Langerton designs and manufatures phase-corrected loudspeakers, cables, component and speaker stands, room acoustic devices, absorbing and decoupling feet and bases. All this crafted in Germany to the highest standards with best available parts and cutting-edge technology and engineering.

Lawrence Audio Mandolin Monitor/ pair with Stands / Che...
On sale is a demo pair of Lawrence Audio Mandolin speakers with Light Cherry veneer finish in absolutely impeccable mint condition ... and less than 10 hours of playtime on them...so not even run in !!! The Mandolin comes with its dedicated and elegantly designed speaker stand. These stands alone would command a list price of at least $650 were they to be purchased separately. It is also usable as a shelftop speaker. List price for the Mandolin in Cherry finish is $5,500, and asking price for our mint demo pair is $3,000 ! The Mandolin is a 2 driver, 2 way bass-reflex bookshelf speaker. The speaker has a Purified Aluminum Ribbon tweeter and a 6.5” carbon fiber bass/midrange. This speaker is absolutely beautiful, and perfect for a small or mid sized sized room, such as 15ft x 120 feet. we have even successfully auditioned them in rooms that are 22 x 30 ft. The sound is so amplified that if one does not know what the speaker looked like, one would think that this sound came from a much larger speaker. The Mandolin's cabinet is made in 25mm MDF and beautifully finished with Light Cherry wood veneer. The finish quality is absolutely first class. Due to its lack of parallel surfaces, this design is also beneficial sonically as it helps reduce standing waves and diffraction allowing the drivers to produce a very clean and pure sound. In addition, it's polygonal, non equilateral shape allows for a narrow front baffle and an extremely rigid, non resonant cabinet. The Mandolin is ported in the back. This speaker delivers many of its bigger siblings performance characteristics, in a smaller and more accessible package. It represents the entry level into the Lawrence Audio speaker range that culminates in the Flagship Eagle Floorstander at $100K/pr.

Harbeth P3ESR Monitor Speaker
East End Hi-Fi is selling one of the most highly regarded mini-monitors of all time! The Harbeth P3ESR's have a history of awards too long to mention. These classic BBC speakers are available in Cherry, Rosewood, Eucalyptus, or Black Ash.TAS 2015 Editor's Choice award winner.Stereophile 2015 Recommended Component.The EAR said of the P3ESR's: "I like the incredible stereo image, the speed they often have on offer, the low distortion of a sealed cabinet and forgive them the limited low end. Let me tell you, the Harbeth P3ESR knows every trick in the book to make the listener accept its small size, because they sound a lot bigger than they are. Harbeths are well known for their midrange performance and Alan Shaw has preserved the quality of the larger models is this speaker. Voices are truly excellent and an instrument like a piano is reproduced in an amazing way." "Yes the P3ESR should be considered a musical instrument and instruments never come cheap. They are worth every single dollar, pound or euro."The HiFi Zine said:"It is difficult to sum up what the P3ESR can do in typical audiophile terms because in a way (to put it most simply) they offer the cleanest window onto the music that I have had the pleasure of ever hearing from a small speaker." "These tiny speakers offered room filling sound that clearly benefited from the improved upstream electronics (PS Audio PWT/PWD combo, SMcAudio VRE-1 preamp and Spectron Monoblocks), revealing detail, timbre and resolution up there with the best I’ve heard. "For those who tell you that these little monitors do not deliver bass below a certain frequency I say stop listening to Hertz and start listening to music.""If someone told me now that I had $2k to spend on speakers and I would have to live with my choice for years without chance of exchange, I’d buy these Harbeths on the spot."Whether it's Classical, Jazz, or other genres, the Harbeth speakers perform mightily.

Clearwave Loudspeaker Design Duet Six (6) ALL ACCUTON ...
Risk free trial of 15 days less shipping costs. SAVE 50% versus if these were found in dealer showrooms. These will come factory direct with a full warranty. This is an all new official product from Clearwave. This speaker is the next generation after the very highly regarded Symphonia 7R, which was rated "Best of 2013" by Parttimeaudiophile. We feel this speaker is even better, and it's not nearly as large! Bass and imaging is outstanding, and we use only top shelf parts. Lets start with the drivers. We are using the amazing sounding 6" Accuton woofer that has the latest generation motor, and the cone surface area is like a 7" driver-- thanks to the unique basket. You can really hear it dig down deep... down into subwoofer territory. The transition to the 1" Accuton inverted dome tweeter is seamless, and here we are using only the best parts in the signal path. The crossovers are hand wired. The Supra wiring is used throughout. Best of all, this speaker has gone through many refinements, and we built it so that each design consideration was utilized to its fullest potential. This is evident from the hand crafted curved front baffle edges for low diffraction, the point to point soldered crossovers, to the carefully selected and matched transducers. Here's the list of features: Accuton 6" woofer Accuton 1" tweeter Low parts count crossover using the following parts: ERSE air core inductors Clarity Cap MR in tweeter signal path Clarity Cap ESA everywhere else Mundorf Supreme resistor in signal path(tweeter) Mundorf 10 watt resistors everywhere else Cardas soldering all point to point from binding posts to drivers High-end Supra wiring Cardas copper binding posts with gold plating Custom engraved binding post plate and port ring to lower resonance. Double thick 2" baffles 1" material everywhere else with vertical bracing Flared port for low noise Proprietary damping material to turn vibration into heat Size: 8.25"W X 13.5"H X 12.25" D Frequency Response: 42hz-25khz (43hz box tuning frequency) Impedance: 8ohm (flat impedance response) Minimum Power Requirements: 35watt (tube) 50watt (ss). All of the above is $2995 with a 15 day audition period money back (less shipping costs). Try them out and be amazed! Pictured here is the Standard real Rosewood veneer with lacquer finish! Most companies would upcharge for all of these features. Thank you for the interest. Clearwave Loudspeaker Design Jed K. Customer Review: As we progress in our search for ‘better sound forever’ one can actually come across something that fits the bill (in at least one category). Digital will always progress and improve but amps, cables and speakers can only go through iterations on proven themes. So, the speaker in question here is the Clearwave Duet 6 monitor. What differentiates this from others is the truly big speaker sound that comes out of a monitor. Robustly built with a 2” front baffle and 1” on all other sides with vertical cross bracing and some proprietary sound deadening inside these ‘monitors’ tip the scales at over 30 lbs. apiece. At 13” tall by 12.5” deep and 8” wide, they are deceptively heavy and inert. The finish I chose is Indian Rosewood which is darkly beautiful, to my eyes. The drivers are Accuton sourced with a 6” mid woofer and and 1” dome tweeter, both with fixed, perforated metal grills that have no effect on the sound. Out back is a carefully crafted rear port with a really nice looking mounting plate for the Cardas binding posts. As I’ve said, fit ‘n finish is beautiful. It’s rated at 85db and I’m told it behaves more like 88db. I have no problem getting into lease breaking sound with my Marantz PM15S2b integrated (90W/channel). Neither cool nor warm sounding, the music is extremely clear and clean sounding. My in room measurements with my Rat Shack sound meter gets me +/- 2db from 1KHz all the way down to 40Hz, down 6db @31.5Hz and down another 4db @25Hz. Granted, my room is not that big but this is without any room treatment. This is from the listening position and at about 67db listening levels. As I’ve gotten used to the sound, I’ve increased it to the low 70s so everything is taking on a more lively nature and it’s incredibly engaging. Being so clean and accurate sounding, tone, texture, timbre and air are rendered in a big and beautiful manner. Dynamics are first rate because as the lower mids and bass kick in, the flatness of the response serves up lots of pressurization in those regions that I’m not used to and it fills the room like an in house event. Again, I’m getting big speaker sound from this monitor. It easily rivals and betters in many ways an old pair of Legacy Classics that I used to have. The main reason seems to be that this monitor is perfect for my space and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it in an even bigger space. There’s no need whatsoever for a sub as it already skirts into the upper regions of that lowest octave. My room fills in the rest (with slightly more volume I’m getting 54db @ 20Hz just 1 meter from the speaker). Vocals, solo instruments, and intimate pieces shine with great lateral spread and center fill. Jazz ensembles are fondled by this speaker. Rock can be bombastic. World Music (for lack of a better word) is finely delineated. There’s no congestion, smear or fogginess. Because of this I’m getting the best stage depth I’ve heard. Nothing wavers or wanders. This kind of coherence can only come from a great crossover as I can’t, for the life of me, hear one. This speaker speaks with one voice. Soulful and rich (not fat or euphonic) are terms I hesitate to use since they can be many things to many people but when rendered correctly, are apt to use, as they imply a sense of realism (to my ears). When used in my HT setup, soundtracks better my local Cineplex. There’s a scene in “Jack Reacher” where Jack has to prove his mettle to a gun range owner and when he fires off some rounds into a metal plate it takes you to that shooting range. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to one but one never forgets the concussiveness of a 30-06 and the sound it makes when it strikes a 1” thick metal plate. I’ve heard it before on different systems but it never braced me like it does now. So what we have here is a supremely musical reproducer that covers most of the audible range and does so is such a convincing manner. Heard that one before? So have I. Now I can say it with the conviction of having lived with it for a few weeks. I don’t know what it is with ceramic drivers as I’ve heard some a long time ago and wasn’t really impressed. They appear to have made some might big strides since and now I’m a big fan. If their size seems right to you and your limit is around $3K, these should be on your short list. All the best, Tim

Thank you for looking at our ad! To see other items that we have available for sale, used or new, please visit www.blackbirdaudio.com or call us at 619-449-2787We are offering up our dealer demo Wilson Benesch ARC monitors. They are in excellent working order though the stands have some minor scuffs and one stand has a ding at its base (see the photos).The Arc are part of the Wilson Benesch Odyssey Series of speakers. The cabinets are framed out in alloy and completed with carbon fiber to insure that the energy within the box remains where it should.These monitors come mounted on dedicated stands, the top plate of which, is in a "U" shape, allowing the speaker's dual ports to fire downward. In this way, the distance from the face of the port to the floor remains a constant distance, ideal for tuning the speaker. Because of this, these monitors are less finicky about the distance off the back wall.Specifications Description: 2-way, true linear phase, free space, ported enclosure, stand mounted monitorDrive units: 1 x 7" Wilson Benesch Tactic Bass/Mid range unit 1 x 1" Soft dome, hand painted silk, ultra linear WIlson Benesch specification tweeterLow frequency loading: Double reflex port tuningFrequency response: 46Hz to 24kHz +- 2dB on axisSensitivity: 88dB spl (2.83V/1M)Impedance: 6 Ohms nominal, 4 ohms minimumCrossover: Mid range drive unit directly coupled to the amplifier, tuned to Arc enclosure Second order tweeter crossover Selected polypropylene capacitors and air cored inductors are used throughout.Crossover frequencies: 5kHzInternal wiring: Multi stranded, silver plated copper, PTFE jacketed cable harnesses Soldered connections throughout Shortpath P.C.B. design Speaker jumpers supplied for single vs. bi-wire applicationsInput connections: Bi-wireable, in-house machined gold plated copper alloy terminalsPower handling: 200W peak unclipped programmeMaximum spl: 111dB at 1MDimensions: Height = speaker 12.2" (37.4" including the stand) Width = 9.1" Depth = 14"Internal volume: 12LShipping weight: 60lbs each (with stands) NOTE: The shipping weight I've claimed in the Audiogon shipping estimator is for the pair but the shipping dimensions shown are for a single box.
