The best bookshelf I have had, barring only the Monitor Audio PL100s. They beat B&W 805s - easily same HF and midrange, but PAS had much better bass. Tweeter and midrange is sublime. This has got to be the ideal cross between a bookshelf size and floorstanding size speaker. Honestly I have had 8 sets of speakers up against them and it has always been an easy decision to keep the PAS. Only coveat is that they need a minimum of 100watts clean power to come to life. Put it there and you will be well rewarded.
These have been a set of speakers that have staid with me the longest, and that says a lot.
Includes bookshelves AND stands. The stands are lead-shot filled and weight about 20-25kg each.
The bookshelves can be bolted to the stands or they have spikes that screw onto them and can be mounted on the stands.
R13500 includes the bookshelves, matching stands, mounting spikes and bolts to bolt speakers to stands. Bear in mind the price includes stands. Original price was U$3000! On gumtree when I put it up the price will be R15000-00, not negotiable
