Edit: SOLD I purchased these speakers from Amazon on June 4, 2016 based solely on the very positive early reviews (i.e. internet hype). Fortunately I liked them so much that I bought an identical pair two years later. Now I'm selling both pairs because I bought a pair of Tekton Double Impacts, which far outweighs (both physically and sonically) the UB5s. And because I was stupid to think that I needed a second pair of speakers. The other pair is here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/elac-uni-fi-ub5-bookshelfs.915212/ (edit: SOLD) NOTE: this pair is part of the first batch that suffered from the widely-discussed cosmetic discoloration of the mid-range drivers. Specifically, the anodizing color of the mid-range drivers has a greenish tint. This issue was discussed in great detail in an AVS Forum thread beginning at this post: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/89-s...shelf-speaker-ces-2016-a-16.html#post44073266. I included a picture of this pair of UB5s next to the other pair I'm selling so you can see the difference. The UB5s need a powerful amp. I drove this pair with a Peachtree Audio nova150 (also for sale here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/peachtree-audio-nova150.915214/). (edit: SOLD) Regarding the condition of these speakers (besides the discoloration issue), there are some minor scuffs that I attempted to capture in the accompanying pictures. Let me know if you would like a better view of any specific area and I'll attempt to capture it better. But if you're looking for visible perfection in a speaker that's wrapped in vinyl you're probably looking in the wrong place. These speakers come in the original box/packaging with "BLEMISHED" stamped on the side due to the discoloration issue. I will also include speaker cables unless you specifically tell me that you don't need them. The cables are nothing special: 2 of Silverback Speaker Wire by Sewell, 12 AWG, with Silverback Banana Plugs, OFC, 259 Strand Count, 3 ft (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009RT90MY). See the pictures in the following Google Photos album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZEB2JHFh3snaAXgE6 Original purchase price: $399.00 I will ship to the lower 48 states with free shipping. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
