The Model 2c is an all time classic that literally never runs out of style, or in our case, sound. They are such accomplished speakers that even today, you would be hard pressed to find anything that will sound better than they and cost under $500. The speakers are relatively easy to drive with a nominal impedance of 8 ohms and a sensitivity of 88dB. Frequency response is a very useful 32 Hz – 29 KHz. The big “plus” on these speakers are their spatial imaging. Position them 3-5 feet away from the back and side walls and you will be treated to a deep, holographic soundstage. Listening to vocals was like having a stage in your room and the singer right smack in the middle. The speakers are not dynamic like a Wilson WATT/ PUPPY setup but smooth and easy. They do get into a rhythm of their own but in a more relaxed demeanor. If you want to enjoy your music and want a full range sound, this is a good choice. For what basically amounts to a pair of bookshelf speakers and stands will cost, the Model 2C is a way better proposition. $125 Vandersteen speaker stands are included in the price and listing. Each speaker is about 37″ tall, 16″ wide and 10.25″ deep. Stands will add another 7″ to the height.
Overall condition of the speaker is good. Minor scuff marks here and there and a few tiny holes on the grille cover. We don’t have the original boxes but will securely pack them for safe shipping. This will be a three box shipment – one speaker in each box and the stands in their own box.
