Clements Loudspeakers was quite the extraordinary speaker manufacturer in the 90’s and early 2000’s that produced speakers that had really ridiculous price tags (and by that we mean they were priced too “cheap”). Their flagship reference speaker barely cost more than $4,000 retail and for the sound quality, stage presence and the technology that went into it – they were running on a combination of regular cone drivers, ribbon and horn tweeters, made them a steal at that price. The 208di is a 2-way speaker that spots a single 8″ woofer and a 1″ horn tweeter in a floorstanding cabinet configuration that stands at 32″ tall, 11″ wide and 11″ deep. Each speaker barely takes up more square footage than a typical monitor speaker on stands would take. But there ends the similarities. We don’t have the exact specs but these speakers throws out an incredible soundstage (the “di” in the model is an abbreviation for “dynamic image”), controlled and tight bass, crystal highs and an overall smooth sound that can make some speakers that cost two or many times more pale in comparison. For under $300 now, these are incredible buys for the audiophile who wants the best sound he/she can get for $300. Speakers are designed such that when the spikes are installed, the speakers are tilted backwards at an angle for time delay coherence between the drivers.
Cosmetically, the speakers look good. Some minor scuff marks/ dings from use but nothing major. We don’t have the original boxes but can securely pack them for safe shipping. Local pickup from our store can be arranged.
