The set is in good condition... some scratches on the cubes but nothing major. They sound as good as can be expected from Bose. They sound better for HT than music. (The cubes are "cute" your wife will love them.)Black in color. It is the first series - bass module is unpowered with 3-6 1/2" woofers. Purchased refurbished for $799 about 4 years ago from a bose factory outlet. I have the original box to ship them in. Asking $400 for the set + shipping. I'll also throw in 5 wall/ceiling mounts designed for the cube speakers and the plugs needed to run your own speaker wire instead of the thin wire that bose gives you. email me at [email protected] for further info or if you're interested.
