* * * I've been collecting vintage stereos for a long time, so trades will be considered * * *

So clear and sweet and balanced!

Matched pair; Works and sounds like new
All-original drivers and X-overs
Very clean, smoke-free

Go loud without losing composure, just like old school B&W, yet also sound great at low volume!

Google search gave this quote:
"..sound wonderful, nice sweet highs and mids, a very full natural sound, and punchy enough if I want to rock"

* 2 types of speaker wire connectors:
1.Euro Banana plugs and
2.Euro DIN 2-pin plugs
You can use either of them, with banana plugs, Euro connectors or bare wire

Speaker grilles will be included
Speaker wire will be included (2m each side)

There are many folks out there who do not have a clue about real meaning of Watts rating.
For control and safety reasons (same as with most other speakers), best sound/best dynamics are obtained with amplifiers rated at 100-300 WPC RMS;
at 10 Watts continuous output it's already disco level loud.
I tested these Tangent at loud levels with JBL Pro MPX1200 (800 Watts/per channel amp),
the sound was simply glorious, music was standing in the air.
So, despite being "chamber" speakers, they can play fairly loud, provided there's no amp clipping.

I was asked this question: "Are these comparable to the Harbeth HL monitors, Spendor and Rogers BBC monitors of the late 70s and early 80s.?"
And my answer is:
Google the model; in many aspects including enjoyment of music, yes. But they are not monitors, they are strictly audiophile speakers.
But then again, I would not call most of Rogers and Harbeth models "monitors", because I know what a REAL monitor is.
Genelec active 1238 or similar is a real monitor.
