** This Ad is Marked as OFF by seller and cannot be responded to. **

YG Acoustics of Denver, Colorado, USA have been producing outstanding speakers since 2002. Their relatively young age has not prevented them from producing some of the most-awarded speaker models in the world. Check-out their awards page here: http://www.yg-acoustics.com/category/awards There are almost 100 awards, including 'speaker of the year', "Golden Ear Awards' 'Product of the Year', 'Recommended', etc from Audio journals from around the world. These awards includes seven for the Carmel model that is being sold in this ad.
Use the link provided above (near top of ad) to access Phil Gold's review at Enjoy The Music.com; he liked them so much that he bought the Carmel as his new reference speaker.
Here are a couple more reviews:

Ultra High End Audio: http://www.ultrahighendreview.com/yg-acoustics-carmel-loudspeakers

The cabinet of the Carmel is built from aircraft grade aluminum alloy, which is solid, heavy (65 pounds - for a speaker just over one meter high) with very low resonance characteristics. The shape of the cabinet has no parallel surfaces, to prevent 'standing wave' problems in the sealed cabinet, and it is tilted back to provide time and phase alignment for excellent imaging and sound-staging.
The excellent-quality drivers are sourced from ScanSpeak and modified by YG Acoustics to sound their best.

These Carmel speakers are in excellent condition, except for one significant mark/scratch on the front panel; thus the 7/10 rating had to be used. Since the cabinet is metal, the scratch is less visible than it would be in a black surface with a lighter colour underneath. Otherwise the speakers are in beautiful condition and of course, this is merely a cosmetic flaw and has nothing to do with the performance of the speakers. The cosmetic flaw is also reflected in the low price.

A pair of YG Acoustic speakers were $18000.00 US when these were made, equivalent to $19000.00 Cdn at the time. You can have this pair for only $8000.00 Cdn obro
