    Same price range...offers considered and they're in the states. Shipping could be $$, 390 lbs for the pair but could be worth the roadtrip.

    There is a pair of the 808s in rosewood for sale locally here. I heard them, was not super impressed but it may be because a Marantz amp was driving them

    I have a pair of tiny AR 2x two ways, I paid $60 for them off CL. I hooked them up to the monster Yamaha amp in front of my old ML Sequels, and let me tell ya's they held their own very nicely! I was very impressed on the power they could handle and the high SPL's they put out...dumbass me started to dick around with the controls in the back and lost the tweeter on one of them. Not an easy fix with these sealed box speaks. A Roy Allison design IIRC.

    I was driving mine with a SX-828 originally. Didn't cut it. Recommended 200wpc minimum for the beast. WOPL really made them sing.

    What were they asking for them because I think $2500+ is overpriced. Should be around $1800.

    Hey Fish, I never asked for a price, just heard them playing at the auction house, I think they are consigned to auction there

    BTW - I think those AR's are overpriced - should be about half what they are asking. Nice speaker though!


    ...also think the B&W's are overpriced...should be under $2000....
