    A series were the last of the proper UK Celestion flagship range, late 'nineties. 4 in the range. They are all a cut above, but as with any other speaker, there are trade-offs. Had the 'A2' for years.

    I waited a long time for a non black pair at a decent price, I paid 200 and as far as I'm concerned that was a bargain. Tweeter is lovely, smoothest metal dome I've owned may be because of the faraday ring, plus the bass they produce is more than acceptable for a quite large room. They are fun but also genuine "audiophile" level.
