These are in black laminate and are in mint condition. My wife and I recently adopted two young children and stand mounted speakers are no longer an option! I will be buying Studio 60's in place of these, which are the exact same speaker configuration, just a bigger, floor standing enclosure. Much better with small children! These things are just several months old and are probably not even completely broken in yet. I am asking $675 plus shipping to anywhere in the 48 states. I also have a really nice pair of Sanus Systems Reference stands that I will be selling too if anyone is interested. They work great for the 40's and are great looking stands with a spiked triangle rose marble base, black metal uprights, and a meatal spiked plate for the speaker to sit on. I will let these go for $100 shipped which is a great deal on these stands. I believe they were around $300 new. Also, I'm looking for an inexpensive amplifier to amp my Studio 60's and maybe even my Studio CC. Somewhere around 150-200 watts per speaker. Either an Anthem MCA-2 or MCA-3, or possibly an Acurus A 200X3 or something similar. Possible even a 5X125 amp or something similar also that would alow me to bi-amp my mains. I would consider a partial trade for something along these lines. Thanks for looking!
