This is a beautiful Italian high-gloss makore finish monitor speakers from Verity Audio. The sound is nothing short of astounding. Excellent sound staging and depth that you would have sworn came from a larger pair of speakers had they been masked in a blind listening test. They need sturdy stands to sound their best and when they are, plus very good ancillary components, you would be drowned in musical bliss. I have owed many similarly priced reference monitors like the original AE1, PMCs and Rogers and they don’t even come close to its level and its price point. Speakers have some light marks that you would need to look for to see it and the grille covers have some wear on the corners but otherwise, the speakers look very good. I have the original flight case and manual and they do weigh a ton (not literally) when shipped.
