The 804S floorstanding speakers that took over the reigns from the Nautilus 804 is a well deserving successor. A perennial favorite among mid-fi audiophiles, the 804S never disappoints. It loves a high powered amp and preferably one that is on the side of warm (like a McIntosh or Audio Research). With that in place and some careful positioning in your room, the 804S should melt away and only its glorious soundstage and its revealing nature should remain. Bass is plentiful and the mids articulate with the highs nicely detailed. It may be the smallest and cheapest floorstander in the 800 series but you can’t tell after you listen to it. The speaker are pretty easy to drive with a nominal impedance of 8 ohm and a sensitivity of 90dB. Frequency response is from 38Hz – 20KHz.
The pair you see here is in nice condition. Finish is cherry. There are several tiny scuff marks/nicks here and there and along the edges which are common with use. Grille cover is brand new and was recently purchased to replace the old one which went missing when the previous owner used the speakers without them. We don’t have the original boxes but will securely pack them for safe shipping. Freight shipping is suggested or else local pickup from our store.
