Will my wife kill me if I sell these? Yep! But at the same time she really wants these unused speakers out of the house, so I've decided to put these up for sale as well as the Canton's and let the internet decide which pair stays in the house. :cool:

I've had these over a decade and I don't have the boxes since I lived in a small apartment when I bought them. They are in perfect working condition but I'd say 6/10 aesthetically. KEF put some terribly flimsy grilles on these things and the plastic frame on one of them is cracked. Only noticeable when actually handling the grille though. Also one noticeable finish scuff on one of them. I will get more pics when I get home.

These sound great and have a wonderful sound stage with the Uni-Q driver. The Dark Apple finish is about as wife-friendly as it gets.

Asking $400 OBO. Local pickup only from 23608. Same rules apply as with the Canton's. You can take the Advent Heritage fixer uppers and the BassX sub as well.

In time you will hate yourself for selling those
They are very nice looking speakers. And look to be as apartment friendly as you can get with a floor standing speaker
Good luck with your sale

Whichever pair remains will just live out its days as LR mains in the living room surround. I can live with these or the Canton's and be content. :)

Here's the scuff in the finish and the crack in the grille. Fairly sure that happened at some point during the move but that was 7 years ago.

I did not think it would take very long for them to sell.
First guy who actually came by to listen, loved them. He originally came for the KEF's but he had seen both of my ads and asked to listen to the GLE's as well. He had to dwell on it for 2 days before he got back to me. His heart loved the KEF's but his ears loved the Canton's more. I can relate! If I was a box builder I'd take the Canton drivers and put them in a dual passive radiator config like the Salk SS8's and live happily ever after.
