Trying to thin the herd again, and have this nice set of Dahlquist PDQ-827/ii for sale.
Made in Canada by Audiosphere, these are not typical Audiospheres. My understanding is they bought up all the IP of Dahlquist when they became insolvent, as AS was looking to get into a more high-end market. These speakers are one of their attempts. Apparently the marketing and distribution was not as good as the speakers themselves.
With an 8" woofer and front port, these produce reasonable bass, and are less placement sensitive than rear ported speakers. The silk dome tweeter is reportedly made by Seas of Denmark, and is surrounded with a very carefully designed rubber waveguide.
I find the speakers very musical, and quite listenable. When I compared them head-to-head with my Wharfedale Diamond 10.6, the Wharfies had better low frequency extension. However, the Dahlquists had the clearly better tweeter, with more extension, and sharper definition/clarity, without becoming strident or fatiguing.
I will be sad to see them go, but unfortunately, the arrival of a set of Ohm speakers has made them surplus.
Price drop from $200 to $150 to $100. Sorry, stands in photos are gone.
