I am reluctantly selling these beautiful Sony SS-M3 2-way speakers. This was one of the recent excursions sony did into higher end audio. Apparently there was large floor stander as well. The cabinet construction is incredibly and it shows not much expense was spared building these unique speakers. high end drivers as well. They are in impeccable condition. Sound is detailed with surprising base.
Do not confuse these with the consumer stuff they put out now. I believe they were around the $1000 price tag when new.
Stands in the pics are also available. I believe they are target solid metal stands.
Pay my price for the speakers and I will sell you the stands for $35.00 if you want them too!
info from another CAM member on these:
This is an attractive speaker that few people should find aesthetically offensive in a living environment. I know from having heard caaudiocollector's SS-M7 ES that it offers smooth mid frequencies with prodigious bass reproduction. He had this speaker up with the Quad 63's at an audio party and the Sony's really sounded great, a different animal but just as pleasing to those who heard it. Imaging of the Sonys was excellent and stage is very wide and it demands breathing room, which was accommodated. You can be way off axis standing up and yet the presentation stays open sounding, no nulls. These Sony's were actually designed by Polk Audio designer Dan Anagnos. I haven't heard the m3 but they are said to be better than the LS3/5 in reviews, and the m7 have a lot of bass like early b&w speakers (I run 805S with a CAP-2100, not a big bass setup).
Back in the mid 1990s Sony's elevated standard lineup was a choice of three speakers progressively titled the SS-M3, SS-M7 and SS-M9, and a later version with a super tweeter and piano finish met the market. Sony had a past history of mixed products in the ES lines, but there were some good ones. You already know these speakers were highly praised when received by audiophiles and reviewers alike, being described by Barry Willis as Wilson Watt/Puppy performance at Vandersteen prices. They give the impression of being pleasing to listen to for long periods. The M3 is a 2-way, the SS-M7 was a 3-way, and the M9 was a 4-way, all use Danish made Peerless drivers and was said to be one of the last commercial speakers to be made with these drivers before Peerless and ScanSpeak moved production to PanYu and XinXu China.
