These were highly raved about speakers from the 2000’s. Even by today’s standards, they would easily compete among some of the best $3,000 – $8,000 speakers out there. The current Avanti speaker has come a long way and the pair you see here is where the greatness of the model name begins. Each speaker has two 6″ woofers firing off each side of the speaker. The narrow front has a 4.5″ mid and a 1″ tweeter. Unlike the later models where you simply run your speaker wires into the binding posts, this Avanti runs a jumper down (not included but you can run your choice of speaker cables as the jumpers) to its woofers to bring together its 3-way, 4 driver symphony of sound. When positioned correctly and in the right room environment, the Avanti is a true class act. Soundstage was three dimensional with impressive width and depth. The speakers can almost blend away into oblivion when you have them setup precisely. Mids and highs were sweet and clean and the bass of quick and punchy. Frequency response is an impressive 32 Hz to 40 KHz with a nominal impedance of 4 ohm and a sensitivity of 88 dB. Audio Physic does recommend a minimum of 30W to drive them but we would recommend giving them more because they can really soak up the power and transform them into a glorious soundstage. Speakers are 7.5″ wide, 42.5″ tall and 16″ deep.
Cosmetically, the speakers looks very nice. Finish is in the premium macassar ebony which really sets it apart from the other finishes with its nice real wood grain. Some minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major and one speaker has a slightly lighter wood finish due to some sun tanning. We do have the original packaging and will securely pack them for safe shipping. Due to their weight and size, the speakers will be strapped on a pallet and ship as freight. Local pickup from our store welcome.
