Based on what I read in an interview with Clearaudio founder Peter Suchy, the company produced these and a few other models early in the company's history, circa 1978 - 1979. Before they made turntables, they made speakers. These appear to have only been available in Europe, possibly just Germany, as the labels on the back are in German, as is the only brochure that Clearaudio has (and sent me as a PDF).
All of the drivers are Philips: Specifically, AD 0161 T8 for the tweeters, and AD 7066/W4 for the mid-woofers. As you can see in the photos, the design is time-aligned.
Cosmetically, they're in good shape. There's a light scratch on the top of one, and the veneer is a little wavy on the angled areas below the tweeters. One of the grills was also cracked at the top, but my repair with Titebond seems to be holding. When I opened them up, I found that the riveted terminal strip on one woofer had detached, so I affixed it with a dab of electronic safe silicone adhesive used for mounting capacitors. I also noticed that the inductor for one needed to be reglued to the board - silicone adhesive to the rescue again!
These are small enough to ship, though local pickup in North NJ is always welcome.
