I wish there was a photo of the actual speakers.   I'm not at all sure what "olive veneer" looks like.   I mean he is going to have to unpack them to sell.   Nobody is forking over that kind of dough for a resealed box.   What if it is full of rocks?

Believe you have to have at least 25 or 50 posts on Steve Hoffman forums to view classifieds.  Those are gorgeous speakers.  Never heard a pair of Harbeths before.  I do have to admit I was mildly tempted by the Spendor SP100's that were posted locally recently.

Never heard a pair of Harbeths before.

The best sounding, most neutral setup I have ever heard ran Harbeths.

I still have to take you up on your offer to tune my JBLs.   I haven't forgotten, it's just... life.
