    Fired these up after a long while. I had forgotten just how good these are. There is the expected electrostatic speed and transparency of the mids and highs, but there is also a good amount of useful bass provided by the active woofers that integrate very well with the rest of the sound, and to my mind pretty much seamlessly in fact.
    These are in very good condition, with no cosmetic issues of note. The crossover components were upgraded before I got them. The original components were kept and are available should the next owner wishes to restore them to original.
    I don't have the original jumpers. The ones that are on them are lash ups made from left overs from a cable that was used for a DIY pure silver interconnect.
    A couple of very heavy custom steel plates are included. These bolt onto the bottom of the speakers. They add stability and also tighten up the bass a tad.
    500 collected from Cheshire.

    Plenty of write ups on these, here's a couple for starters.

    Those take me back. I had some Aeon-i's and they were very interesting indeed. Holographic imaging; one could practically walk around and shake hands with the musicians!

    I refinished mine in silver. That was many years ago!

    At 500, these are a downright bloody bargain. Would buy these myself, but collection is not possible for me.

    Anyway GLWS

    Cheers. That's usually the case. Whenever you see something you want that's to big to post, chances are it's the other end of the country from where you are. Sods law.
    I've had a few people interested but unable to collect due to distance.

    I think these are my old ones looking at the bag of caps? https://theartofsound.net/forum/show...-Recent-Panels

    If so: - crossover caps upgraded by the person I purchased them from (ex technical director of wharfedale) and they had new panels just before I sold them.

    Cheers Diceman. I had forgotten that the panels had been replaced, which makes them even more of a bargain.

    Was going to ask about the panels but didn't want to be seen as thread crapping.
