AVI Gravitron floor standing speakers, finished in stunning real rosewood. These were AVI's flagship design of the late nineties which cost approximately £4600 in the rosewood finish at that time. They were a "no expense spared " spared design which is reflected in the fabulous build quality the superb cabinet and the high quality drivers, I understand that only 50 pairs were produced by AVI - making them extremely rare! Speakers of this standard/build quality would now be nearer £10,000- if you can find anything like them!
Two 10" drivers are mounted in a "sealed box" enclosure with associated midrange and treble in a separate sealed "pyramid". These are connected together by a substantial umbilical cord and associated connectors.
They weigh approximately 60Kg and measure 120 cm high, 54 cm deep and 32 cm wide. Please bear in mind these are big heavy speakers which will naturally work better in larger rooms.
They are very imposing speakers which exude quality - even more so when they are in action. Superb imaging speed and clarity with remarkable presence. Efficiency is a reasonable 88dB/w at 1 m and so driving them is not a problem, but higher powered amps produce better results.
If you do an internet search you will find a Sound on Sound review of these which gives further information
This pair are in very nice condition overall. There is some slight fading to the veneer ( see pictures) and there are two tiny holes in the black grille cloth of one speaker. Also for the sake of completeness on the the dust caps to one bass driver has very small dents which have no impact on their performance.
Anyone who is genuinely interested in them is very welcome to come to my home near Gloucester and audition them, I am sure that anyone who does will not be disappointed.
These must be collected from my home address as they are extremely large and heavy - posting is not possible, but I will assist if you wish to have them collected by courier.
