SOLD - FOR SALE: Avalon Acoustic Eidolon Speakers - the supremely musical classic
The original Eidolon reference speaker from Avalon Acoustics, in Cherry. Supremely musical while offering insight and resolution unmatched at this price. These speakers are well known for their extraordinarily lifelike musical timbre, resolution and soundstaging; they disappear into the room leaving only wonderful music. One of the most perfect three-way speaker systems for the size and price, the Avalon Eidolon continues to represent something of a pinnacle in development at Avalon. It won the top Hi-Fi News speaker award for 2002-03. Featured is a revolutionary tweeter design by German maker Accuton, plus an improved woofer design, improvements to internal cables, crossover components, and internal acoustic damping.
Speakers are in very good condition and would be marked as "Excellent" except for two small mars to the finish that are more noticeable in the flash photos than in actual life (one on each speaker, please see photos). We are the original owners of these speakers and they have been maintained in our smoke-free home since originally purchased new. We are selling them now only because we are downsizing and our new residence will not have space for our audio system, so all of it is being offered for sale. Please see my other postings.
Shown mounted on the Eidolons in the photo and available for an additional cost are brass Walker Audio Valid Points and Resonance Control discs (not included) and a pair of high definition links. My wife and I believe they make a noticeable improvement in the sound of these already marvelous speakers. These are being sold separately and not included in this listing. See below.
SHIPPING: These speakers will ship in two crates of the dimensions shown above, each weighing approximately 231 pounds (462 pounds total) by insured motor freight. You pay the cost of shipping and insurance. Local pickup available and recommended.
PAYMENT: Payment by PayPal, bank cashiers check, bank wire transfer. Buyer to pay PayPal or other transaction fee.
ACCESSORIES: I use the following accessories with these speakers for even higher level of performance. These are being sold separately so please ask:
>> Walker Audio 2" Valid Points - as coupling spikes threaded into the base of the speakers. A significant improvement over the manufacturer's supplied coupling spikes. Being sold separately and not included in this listing. Please ask.
>> Walker Audio High Definition Links - placed across the speaker cable binding posts they eliminate noise in the signal path. Get rid of VHF and RFI. Provide cleaner and clearer harmonics, faster and sharper dynamics without harshness. Being sold separately and not included in this listing. Please ask.
>> Walker Audio 1" Resonance Control Discs - one on top of each speaker cabinet these make a subtle but observable improvement in the leading edge of transients. Being sold separately and not included in this listing. Please ask.
