FOR SALE: Acoustic Energy AE1 in cream white finish
This is a nice pair of Acoustic Energy AE1 speakers in the rarest of finishes (white cream). 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. 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 (that are not visible in their normal listening position) and with impeccable drivers (tweeters and woofers) and front grilles, the finish of which is a kind of matching light grey - please see the attached pictures.
They have been tested by me just before listing and they sound as glorious as ever.
For reviews of this specific model please check http://www.audioreview.com/product/speakers/floorstanding-speakers/acoustic-energy/ae1.html
I am asking a lower price for this set than standard asking prices for the much more common black/rosewood finish ones. Check on eBay and at HiFi Shark currently listed and/or sold speakers of this model in black/rosewood finish, and find out, on the same occasion, that:
1. The standard asking prices for the more common models can be beyond 1000
2. 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 a sturdy double box as they weigh 8Kg each - with packaging material a parcel containing both should be about 18Kg; please check the two websites indicated below for shipping prices (that vary depending on buyer’s location):
1. Luxembourg Post (for cost, safety, speed, convenience, traceability and their track record) - please check their rates in: https://www.post.lu/particuliers/colis/prix
2. GLS (for a similar set of reasons) – please check their rates in https://gls-group.eu/LU/en/parcelshop-prices
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 (up to 50 miles max, give or take) detour be necessary. Same rule applies in case you should live near Luxembourg. A small deposit will be required to secure one such deal.
Price is €760 or £666
I can accept payment by cash on collection/delivery, bank transfer or by PayPal, the latter with shared PayPal fees, meaning adding a mere 2% to the final agreed item price + shipping costs (sharing PayPal fees makes sense since it is both convenient for buyer and seller). Should you want to collect or have them delivered to you (in case this latter alternative should be possible) 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.
Please check also my other items.
