I'm in the Farmington Valley.  Avon.

Know the area well.  My family lived in Granby for years.  Here's a little blurb I wrote up about the speakers before I got side-tracked by the photo issue.  Happy to talk and of course share photos.  For a fellow Cter, happy to discuss pricing.  

 

Near-Excellent condition with the exception of small piece of veneer missing on the front edge of one and a very small piece missing on the rear edge of the other.  They could be easily repaired by someone with more carpentry/veneering skills than myself (none whatsoever).  Serial numbers are 1R979 and 1R980, which I believe makes them built in 1977.  All original including AA crossovers.  Sound is big and beautiful.  No longer have the room in new place.  I am located in mid-coast Maine, but willing to drive them down to Boston, or anywhere else approximately a 4 hour ride from here, for pick-up.  Happy to PM more photos.
Asking $2,700.

I'm a little surprised it's as funky to do as it is.  That said, I have no idea what size they need to be to display properly on the Forum.  Couldn't find any guidance on the Forum at all.  

 

Thanks.  I'll get it eat some point.

 

For onscreen display, as opposed to printing, it’s surprising just how small a file can be and still look good.  You can shrink an individual picture file down to 300-500 kB and it will look fine.

Thanks,  That's exactly what I was worried about.

One common trick to downsample photos is email them to yourself - some email editors will compress the photos to reduce file size.  Or if you prefer, feel free to PM me the photos and I'll downsample them on your behalf.

 

I'll also admit that I'm interested in the Belles and using the "PM me the photos" angle to try and get an early look.  But I'll give @Mark Z first dibs as he responded with his interest yesterday.

Posting these on behalf of @Domenic@Mark Z has called interest in this, and I'll happily buy them if Mark Z turns them down.  But we all like gear shots, and like all Belle's, these are beautiful.  Again, posted on behalf of the seller.

Many thanks, BadChile.  Appreciate the help.  I think I finally figured it out and like so many other things in life I was making more out of it than I needed.  Story of my life!  Dom

I'm backing off, not sure I'll get the bass I'm looking for over the Chrous2's, I may regret it, they are beautiful.  You're up BadChile!  Thx for the pics and the chat Dom.

Thanks, @Mark Z - Have to pass too as I realized my listening room is too small.  My enthusiasm got the best of me.  I've already contacted the seller but wanted to post this here as well - These are still available.  I have the high res photos from the seller as well if anyone need better photos - let's get these to a good home before the weekend.

Thanks for the interest, Mark.  As we agreed, without an A/B test its a difficult decision.  I'll wait a couple of days and post them in a separate post for sale.  (You might change your mind yet!)  Nice meeting you remotely.

BadChile, I understand completely.  No problem on my end.  They ARE largish pieces of furniture, though very pretty.  Thanks for your help with this.  I'll post them beginning of next week in an official For Sale post.  Great meeting you and many thanks again.   You and Mark are both a credit to the Forum!

Love stinks!  I oiled up the Bells and lint brushed the grill clothes, and stared moon-eyed at them for a few days  . . . and now I don't think I want to sell them!!!  At the very least, I'm going to hold off posting them for real for a while.  Seriously, probably cheaper to own race horses, but there you have it.  Thanks everyone for the communication.  Very helpful.  If I ever find out that these Belles have been cheating on me, they are going right on the damned market!

I love that these "found" a good home. Every time I fire up the Heresy system in my smallish room I wonder how the Belles would have  performed...but I'm glad you're keeping them!

 

If you're ever driving down 128 to Boston shoot me a message. I'd be happy to meet up, get some BBQ or something and give you a chance to say "yeah, his listening room is too small!"
