FOR SALE: Acoustic Energy AE1 speakers in cream white finish
This is a nice pair of Acoustic Energy AE1 speakers in the rarest of finishes. Indeed Acoustic Energy came up with an extremely limited run, in cream finish, of their iconic, best-seller black model, and this pair is one of them. It is otherwise technically identical to the much more common black finish ones. Check the attached picture of an advert where they show in full kit form, with stands, along their AE2 black siblings.
This pair is fine cosmetic condition with minor marks on the bases but with impeccable tweeters and front grilles (the finish of which is a kind of matching light grey) but there’s a catch, the woofer foams have now perished. Please bear this is mind if buying as they are sold AS IS.
However this is no reason to put you off as such foams are easily available on line, even with the necessary glue and instructions to carry out the job properly, should you be DIY inclined, saving some quid in the process, as compared to having the job done by a professional, possibly Acoustic Energy themselves, at a cost.
The price reflects rarity and the fact that putting them back to shape is affordable, bringing the total cost to the rate that black finish ones go for. Check on eBay and at HiFi Shark sold speakers of this model in black, and find out, on the same occasion, that there is no record of such cream/white models having been sold recently, or at all.
Ideally I’d prefer them to be collected, at my place in Luxembourg where I’m currently posted, but I can ship them and should that be your choice I’d suggest in sturdy separate boxes as they weigh 8Kg each - a parcel containing both would, with packaging material, be near 18Kg or more, but I leave it to the successful buyer to opt. Shipping rates to be agreed depending on buyer’s location and as for shipping company I do recommend the Luxembourg Post for cost, safety, speed, convenience, track record and traceability.

On the other hand, as I’m in the UK often (on average once a month) I can also bring them to you, either for free, should you be on my way from Dover to East Sussex/very near, of for the cost of petrol should a significant but reasonable detour be necessary. Same rule applies in case you should live near Luxembourg. A small deposit will be required to secure one such deal.
I can accept payment by bank transfer, which of course I’d prefer, or by PayPal but with shared PayPal fees, meaning adding a mere 2% to the final agreed price. Should you want to collect then cash is the only option unless paid previously by bank transfer.
Any questions please ask and you can also solicit my phone number to discuss any doubts by phone.
