Buy with confidence; see my excellent feedback from Audiogon under “guru” and now Canuck Audio Mart Product Description: Final Sound 1.4 Reference Electrostatic speakers and Matching stereo subwoofers Condition: 9 Used Price: 7500.00 CAD OBO and Trades accepted Finish: Cherry NOTE: Sorry about photo quality we will get higher rez asap what you don't see is that the panels are 100% transparent see through like Martin Logans not black.
Perry 2 cents: What we have here may indeed be your Final pair of speakers, no pun intended, ok ok a punn was intended. Anyone interested in some of the very best panel speakers take note, These drop dead gorgeous speakers sound as good as they look. The system belonged to the owner of Final which included a custom set of uber high end subwoofers to precisely match these reference stats. They were sold to one of my long time clients around 12 years ago, they were used with top of the line BAT gear and then put into storage for 5 years. He's now re-entering the market and needs a much smaller system so they are up for sale. I set this system up myself and it sounds glorious
the speakers originally sold for 15000.00 and the subs around 6000.00 for the pair For the price of 7500.00 OBO its a killer deal But like any big panel you need some room and good quality power I suggest nothing less than 150/200 wpch but I'm sure a high current integrated can do them justice as well. And we have plenty to choose from if need be
Features This was Final Sounds best speak to date It was a dedicated 3-way Electrostatic design with integrated tweeter One other thing about Final Sound ESLs that is unique, is that the amplifier power goes to the membrane (actually, a conductive center inside the membrane), and the static voltage is applied to the stators. They have patented this technology, and claim that it provides a clearer and more responsive sound.
Matching stereo sealed subwoofers were custom designed by TC Sounds with with their finest drivers and 1000 wpch Canadian made BASH amplifiers in matching veneer. These were custom made for the owner of Final themselves and work flawlessly with the 1.4s

And a few comments from the Press http://hometheaterhifi.com/volume_14_3/final-sound-1000i-speakers-8-2007-part-5.html
The Final Sound 1000i electrostatic speakers are truly delightful. I loved the transparency, the clarity, the natural timbre, and the smoothness of the sound. They require a good amplifier, but that is standard for ESLs. I would suggest getting more than one of the subwoofers, or as an alternative, one subwoofer with a larger driver and more amplifier power.
To my way of thinking, the Final Sound 1000i represents a milestone in the evolution of the electrostatic loudspeaker. It is a reliable, real-world ESL, whose musically expressive personality has won me over in spades. Its harmonic purity, tonal realism, and dynamic range meet the needs of most musical genres. If I had to live with only a single ESL — cost no object — the 1000i would be my top pick. A must audition for any ESL aficionado and anyone serious about approaching the live experience at home.
