    I upgraded to Athena AS-F2 floorstanding speakers, so I have 2 S.5 Bookshelf speakers for sale. They've only been used for a few months and are in excellent condition.

    These sell for $175 a pair at Onecall and Audioadvisor:

    I'm looking for $70 each or best offer.

    Small Size, High Power Handling, Massive Sound
    The S.5 speaker combines great looks, flexible placement options, high power handling, and massive sound all in one value-priced package. The high gloss black cabinets look beautiful in any decor. The best part about the S.5 is its many functions. It has been designed for use on its own in smaller rooms, in conjunction with the P.5 subwoofer for larger rooms, or as a rear channel speaker in a home theater system. It is also completely timbre matched with other Athena Technologies speakers, so it can be utilized in conjunction with Athena's SCT and Audition models.

    "Clean and Open" Sound
    The flexibility and value of the S.5 speaker is only surpassed by the amazing sound quality it will provide. "Measurements show the system to have wide, smooth frequency response," marvels the Spring 2002 Audio Ideas Guide, which terms the S.5 "very fast, with surprising transient energy."

    "When I first connected the S.5 satellites, I was amazed at how clean and open they sounded, and how capable they were at throwing a huge soundstage," reports the July 15, 2002 issue of GoodSound! "Even without a subwoofer, the S.5s provided enough bass on their own to make listening to most kinds of music extremely enjoyable."

    The S.5 uses a 1" Teteron dome tweeter with dispersion-enhancing tweeter faceplate for a wider listening window. The midwoofer uses a 4" high-performance injection molded polypropylene cone that really kicks out the bass, thanks to rear vented cabinet design for extended low frequency response. The cabinet is made with 1/2"-thick MDF fiberboard for sound-enhancing rigidity. All components are magnetically shielded for use near your TV or monitor with no interference. Five-way gold-plated binding posts give you lots of connection options.

    Mounting Bracket Included
    The included mounting bracket is one of the sturdiest and simplest designs on the market today. The bracket requires no special tools and allows very flexible angles to let you place the speaker where you need to, and aim the sound where the seating positions are.

    But the S.5 really shows its stuff when used with a quality speaker stand.
