Joseph Audio Pulsars-CherryCherry Pulsars boxed

Brand new in boxes, never opened.  MSRP-$7700– Sale Price  $6200

One of the very best stand mount monitors ever.

“A two-way compact of impeccable craftsmanship and sonic insight. This bass reflex design makes listening deep into the mix an altogether revelatory experience. Borrowing much of the cabinet and driver technology (including the superb tweeter) and advanced Infinite Slope crossover technology from the flagship Pearl, The diminutive Pulsar outputs music with smooth bass response and profound midrange purity. Its overall lack of grain couled with speed and clarity naturally bring to mind a ribbon or electrostatic. And in dynamic contrasts and transient behavior it is a veritable light-saber. It’s a speaker that combines the sophisticated sonic characteristics of a superb mini-monitor with the punch and much of the weight of a larger speaker. Ideal for the smaller home, and for our Mid-Priced Loudspeaker Of The Year Award.”

MSRP $1,995 Price $1,050 Excellent condition. M 16i vertical

Beautiful Cherry wood veneer. Tri-wireable, smooth, musical, tower speaker, IMG_0432IMG_0433excellent condition. The Epos M16i’s special attribute was a sense of involvement and coherence that I’ve never heard from another affordable speaker. Clarity, speed, transient slam, and no trace of coloration, deep into the midbass. The cabinets are exquisite and these are near mint condition, no blemishes visible on them. Very attractive, tall and slender, easy to drive, tube or solid state.

Dyaudio Excite X-12

IMG_0424

MSRP $1200 Sale Price $700

Excellent condition. The rear-ported, two-way X12 sports a 5.7″ cone made of a proprietary magnesium-silicate–loaded polymer (MSP), with a voice-coil and die-cast basket both made of aluminum. The X12 also includes an impedance-correction circuit that is claimed to make the impedance completely linear above 100Hz. This presents the amplifier with very small inductive and capacitive loads; the X12 should be easy to drive for a wide range of amplifiers. Robert Reina says: The Dynaudio Excite X12 has become my new benchmark for loudspeakers costing under $2000/pair.
