I am selling my beautiful pair of B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) Nautilus 804 full range floor speakers in cherry wood finish. This is an amazing pair of speakers and I have loved every minute of listening to them, but with small kids in the house I've had to take down my stereo system for safety reasons (plus I can't play them at a volume that they deserve) and it's a shame to let them sit in the garage. We are also moving and I would prefer not to have to keep them in storage, so they are looking for a new home.
The speakers are in perfect condition and properly broken in. These speakers need a lot of juice to run properly, I used an old Marantz SR-18 as well as a new Denon 3d compatible receiver and they sound incredible, but you don't want to hook them up to a budget system or they will be wasted. My entire system is taken apart and stored in the garage so I can't demo them for you, but I promise you will not be disappointed. If needed in order to close the sale I can try and hook them up in the garage, but I will only do that if you have cash in hand and are ready to buy as it's a big hassle to put everything together again. They are amazing, trust me on this one.

The speaker cost $3,500 when new and the later models (the Nautilus Diamond series) cost even more. Asking $2,000 since they looks and sound like new but I don't have the original boxes anymore - they were huge and took up too much room in storage. I believe I still have the original manual for them though.
The speakers are large - 30" tall x 13.5" deep x 9" wide - and they weigh something like 65 pounds each, so if you don't have a car big enough I can help you transport them home in my cargo van if you live reasonably close.
I am also selling a matched B&W Nautilus HTM2 center channel speaker in the same cherry wood finish. Asking $500 for that one, but if you buy all three I will knock off $200 off the total cost (i.e. $2,300 for all 3). Search for that ad using "B&W Nautilus HTM2 center channel in cherry finish"
I also have some crazy speaker cables available. I don't want to say speaker "wire" because these are total beasts and "wire" doesn't do them justice. They are custom made Tara Labs bi-wire over an inch thick with alligator posts. Don't even ask what I paid for them, it's embarrassing! If you need a really really good cables for these speakers I will sell them for $100 per cable, which is an absolute steal as I paid a LOT more for them (like, well over $1,000). But without speakers they are of no use, so my loss is your gain.
I would prefer to sell locally (San Francisco), especially as I don't have the original boxes anymore, but if you are willing to pay for box and packing material plus shipping costs I am willing to do that. In that case I would like to be paid for the speakers up front, after which I'll get a shipping quote after everything is boxed up, and you can pay for that as a separate transaction.
