Reason for selling: I built a multipurpose, family friendly audio system for my main room and have not space for a specialized second system.

Extra Info: If you are into SET Class A tube amps, or have a high quality, low powered solid circuit amp (like a Pass Labs First Watts amp) or simply are sensitive to timing misalignment of speakers with crossovers, this is one of the best speakers at this price point. This particular model is equipped with a 10 inch Neodymium driver from Audionirvana (discontinued due to its high price) that produces a rich aural image due to an extraordinarily timing qualities of a single point source on each channel. The result, for well recorded music, is incredible imaging and a breathtaking width of sound stage. The cabinet is hand made in a beautiful rosewood with satin and oil finish.  Retail price is just over $4000

Wow these look great.  Is there a 10" Neodymium, as I could only find reference to a Ferrite (cheap) and Alnico (expensive) model in the 10" driver.

Not any more. They used to be available but they were discontinued around March 2015. The page backup in the Wayback machine shows them listed for the last time around that date.

What I was told by the manufacturer was that the 10 inch had the same neodymium magnet as the 12 inch (same size, weight etc), but its lower price didn't offered good economics for them. They preferred to sell that magnet in the 12 inch as a higher price. It is unfortunate that they discontinued them as that amount of magnet driving a smaller cone offered best balance in terms of bass control, detail and efficiency.

Looks like the "Megalong" from Tubesound Audio

Yes, same cabinet builder. Excellent quality products. But note that the Megalong is offered with the less expensive 10 inch Anilco driver instead of the premium neodymium.

They do look like very nice cabinets. Coincidentally I am visiting Stephen at TSA later in the week to discuss a rack build.

Wow, that's a great coincidence. Stephen is a really nice and knowledgeable guy. And he offers a great service too.

 

Sometime after I got those speakers I wanted to get a pair of OTL  tube monoblocks from him, but sadly I can't have two audio systems at home. Good luck with your rack build!

      Cartridge --The Clearaudio Concerto 
       
      Clearaudio has significantly improved our fully symmetrical MC design, first patented in 1980.

      We redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the magnets (to 8 pcs.) so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. Furthermore we have chosen the strongest magnetic material available: super neodymium. Through these achievements, the efficiency has been raised by 30%, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV at 5cm/sec. All models now utilize the improved V2 generator.

      The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry with a stylus radii of 0.008mm x 0.040mm. The total mass (0.00016g) is a fifth of the previous diamond stylus.

      Cartridge body resonances, while tracking in the groove, are minimized through the twelve finger design of the mounting plate, each finger with a different radius. This is the result of our constant research and development.

      The cartridge bodies of our 5 models: Goldfinger, Titanium, da Vinci, Stradivari and Concerto are made out of the following: gold, titanium, ceramic coated aluminum, Ebony and Satinee wood. The generator construction of the new V2 moving coil cartridge generation is absolutely symmetrical: mechanically, magnetically and electrically, our unique design. All Clearaudio moving coils use our proven 24 ct. pure gold coils.

      All the design aspects of Goldfinger, Titanium and Stradivari are found in the Concerto V2: the entry-level into our New-Generation-Super class of moving coil cartridges.

      Both the satiné wood from which the body is made and its resonance-optimised shape contribute towards the excellent performance of the Concerto V2, the baby of the Clearaudio flagship range
       
       
      Clearaudio Concerto V2 MC Cartridge
      With a dynamic range of up to 70 decibels and a total weight of only seven grams, the mc concerto v2 qualifies itself for the top league of moving coil cartridges.
      Within this satin wood body the technology is outstanding, housing 24-carat gold coils and a patented eight-magnet array unique to our V2 range. Further champion-level ingredients are the boron cantilever and Micro HD stylus. A recipe to win the trophy of sound championship.
       
      Total weight: approx. 7.0 gram Output voltage: 0.6 mv at 5 cm/s Material/color: satinè wood with metal platter STYLUS SHAPE Micro HD COMPLIANCE 15/15 μ/mN REC. TRACKING FORCE 2.8 g REC. LOAD RESISTANCE 300 Ohm OUTPUT VOLTAGE 0.6 mV at 5 cm/s CARTRIDGE IMPEDANCE 50 Ohm CARTRIDGE BODY Satinè wood with metal platter TOTAL WEIGHT Approx. 7.0 gram
