For sale is a pair of Energy Connoisseur C-9 speakers in Black Ash finish. There are a few minor scuffs, you will need a magnifying glass to locate them. They are my personal speakers (one owner) from a smoke free and pet free home. These are four driver speakers, so they are difficult to engineer well. Operationally they are perfect and they were extremely well taken care of. They have not been used for the past three years, tested to work well. These are terrific speakers, I guarantee it, better go to someone who will listen to them. I bought these speakers at the fag end of the product cycle when they had improved the drivers (trickle down from their Veritas model) and increased the price, so you are getting the best version.

These are great all round speakers for any kind of music and they are very efficient at 94db, so you can enjoy your tube amplifiers. I prefer solid state amplifiers for these and about 150 Watts will make them shine. The hallmark of these speakers are “transparency”, “ tight bass down to 31HZ” and “accuracy of reproduction”. The silver front baffle adds a glowing and beautiful touch to the look of the speakers.

I have the original box, packaging, manual and floor spikes and they will be shipped to the buyer via UPS (insured) at the buyer’s expense. I prefer a local sale, shipping would be costly

“While the C-9s shine on many levels, their success stems primarily from their ability to get consistently to the heart of the performance, regardless of the source. Madonna’s "Substitute for Love" from Ray of Light [Maverick/Warner Bros. CDW 46847] revealed that the C-9s are capable of handling complex detail very well. Madonna’s voice was well focused, with good body and control noted. The C-9s rendered the artificial phase information on this track well, with the soundstage width stretching beyond the room boundaries.”

“The C-9s' bass was solid and extended -- way down deep -- while remaining detailed. It really grabbed me. While listening to Bruce Cockburn's "Pacing the Cage" from Anything Anytime Anywhere [True North TND 267], I noted a subtle but potent bass note that kicks in at the two-minute mark. I discovered this note because the C-9s delivered it with authority and definition to spare”.

“The C-9s' rhythmic abilities help propel the music along with a kind of bounce and timing that are unequalled at their price point to my knowledge, and this is something the B&W Nautilus 804s just don't have as one of their more alluring traits. But that’s not to say that the Nautilus 804s are totally bass shy; they just do not have the natural ability to plumb the depths with the same level of authority and panache as the C-9s”.
