Standmount/Bookshelf Loudspeakers

Stenheim Alumine 2 and Alumine 2 SE Starting at $11,990-$14950
Factory stands are $2490.00 Light or shiny Dark Grey finishes.


Made in Switzerland, the new full aluminum bookshelf Alumine TWO SE speaker combines unparalleled expertise and years of research to bring  exceptional sound. Technical development of this Special Edition has been highly inspired by the world acclaimed Alumine FIVE Signature loudspeaker.
With Stenheim, rediscover the sense – and sensation – of hearing. Hear the music vibrate and shine as it reveals the musician’s sensitivity and emotion along with the beauty of the composition. At last, listening is infused with a concert atmosphere, the audience’s energy and enthusiasm.
Some manufacturers focus on the sensory, others on technology. Stenheim’s approach merges the two, because the company understands the relationship between real physical constraints and their impact on the subjective quality of listening. Ignoring the trendy, Stenheim products are built to last. This is why they’ve chosen simple elegance and neutral, rich and clear tones, highlighting the beauty of the music and nothing else.
With Stenheim, rediscover engagement with music and sensation of immersive listening.

The Alumine represents a substantial deviation from conventional speaker design.
With high efficiency, the Alumine permits the use of high quality but lower powered amplifiers. Unparalleled speed combined with beautiful and rich tone elevates Stenheim from all too common audiophile fireworks and overhyped, but ultimately fatiguing designs.
With the ability to customize the finish with endless possibilities, aesthetic sentiments are addressed. With no exposed fasteners or screws, our watch industry team has created a fluid and stunning achievement in contemporary speaker design.
In an age of obsessive consumerism and product choice, Stenheim believes in pride of ownership and longevity. And while the Alumine manifests this philosophy, it is truly inspired by the passion and love for music.

Vandersteen VLR Special edition CT Speakers

One of our favorite standmount speakers.
Accurately reproducing the signal from the amplifier requires preserving
all of the delicate time-domain relationships that comprise music.
Because there isn't enough physical real estate to time align such a
compact speaker, making a time- and phase-coherent speaker in such  a
small box requires the use of coaxially-mounted drivers like the
woofer/tweeter used here. This custom built driver features the carbon
tweeter technology only found on Vandersteens finest products.  The
result is all the coherence and dimensional purity one expects from a
classic Vandersteen in a gorgeous and versatile little speaker.

T+A TCD 410

The TCD 410 R is a compact, medium-sized bookshelf speaker which can also be stand-mounted. It is a classic two-way design, and manages the feat of combining the delightful tonal and spatial characteristics of the compact two-way speaker with the bass response and deep bass dynamics of larger floor-standers.
As with all TCD models, the cabinet is extremely solid and resonance-free, because it consists of a rigid internal case permanently bonded to the side panels.The mid and bass range are catered for by the new 17 cm GREYCONE® drive unit, which has a phenomenal performance. Naturally the new Waveguide dome tweeter is employed for the high frequency range. These two drivers harmonise together perfectly, creating tremendous detail fidelity and imaging accuracy. Massive bi-amping terminals, an extremely low-loss cross-over unit with a new form of low-saturation, low-distortion coils, and an accurately tuned bass reflex system are important constituents of this small loudspeaker.
For the two-way system of the TCD 410 R we have developed a completely new 17 cm bass / mid-range driver which offers superb dynamic qualities in the bass range as well as operating effectively in the mid-range, with a completely unfettered, uncoloured and open character. This unit also features our GREYCONE® cone. This consists of air-dried wood fibres and graphite particles, producing an extremely stable, highly damped, amorphous material which eliminates any systematic propagation of structure borne sound in the cone.
To prevent any form of resonance and break-up in the extremely critical mid-range area, the cone incorporates carefully defined slots which are sealed with a special adhesive; this not only stiffens the cone, but also prevents all partial vibration. A carefully optimised phase plug made of machined aluminium ensures homogeneous radiation characteristics up to 4000 Hz and above. The low-profile surround provides good damping, guarantees accurate excursion characteristics and also perfect roll-off and transition qualities in the mid-range / treble-range. The huge magnet forms a perfect unit with the rigid pressure-cast basket. This unique driver endows the entire vocal range with an incredibly musical and pleasant character.

Point-Sound-Source Speaker System
Technics’ newly developed flat coaxial two-way speaker unit combines a tweeter for high frequencies and a woofer for mid-range and bass.

As a result, the Technics Speaker System deliver a live superb soundstage focus, excellent imaging and the ambience required to deliver the ‘live music’ experience.

PRODUCT DETAILS

The compact RUBICON LCR delivers a wide dynamic range, a coherent sound with lots of details all together with a bass response that’s unrivalled in its class. The rotatable hybrid tweeter module makes it possible to use the RUBICON LCR as either the left or right channel, or as a centre speaker. The 6½ inch woofer uses the ingeniously designed bass port to reach maximum bass depth. With the RUBICON LCR, we promise you a sound performance that will dazzle you and leave you with goose bumps.
The RUBICON LCR can be combined with other loudspeakers in the RUBICON range, for instance as part of different surround systems.

Aerial Acoustics Model 5T

Aerials Model 5 T

The Aerial Acoustics Model 5T represents a complete reevaluation of the possibilities of the small speaker. Although replacing the popular and respected 5B, the 5T is a completely new design. It offers significant and measureable improvements in system sensitivity, dynamics, treble delicacy, midrange transparency, and bass extension. Designed specifically for placement 2” to 2’ from a wall, it has already proven to surprise listeners whether in a bookshelf, on a tabletop, or mounted on a stand.
The Model 5T reflects the larger and more expensive Model 6T and Model 7T designs. It shares the same curved cabinet construction, high gloss finish, the same tweeter, similar woofer refinement, and tight-tolerance crossover componentry and wiring.
The cabinet’s extremely rigid and inert curved shape is created by bonding multiple layers of wood together under high pressure for 48 hours in a 20 ton press. The cabinet’s thick walls are further cross-braced. The front baffle is attached to the cabinet face with a hand-chosen environmentally conscious damping glue. The cabinet’s internal volume is damped with New Zealand long-fiber wool specifically chosen for its sonic character. All these steps insure a cabinet capable of reproducing soft or loud music passages without perceivable sonic colorations. Finally, the cabinet is finished in Nero Metallic Black, High Gloss Rosenut, or an all-new premium High Gloss Ebony.
The Aerial 5T features a 1” woven ring-dome dual-magnet tweeter from the 7T, along with a new 6.7” long-stroke papyrus-blend driver custom-made for the 5T. With the optimized high-order multi-element crossover, the result a smooth frequency response from 48 Hz to 23 kHz.
Available in Rosenut and Ebony at $3795.00 a pair


T+A Lignum LGR10

T+A Lignum LGR-10 several finishes available.

Small in size but Unbelievable performance.

This auction is for 1 pair of speakers.

Available in Black, White, Cherry, Maple.

The LGR 10 is a tiny little bookshelf speaker, but it is also extremely well-equipped, with an annular tweeter and a 14 cm long-throw bass / mid-range driver which shares the design of the bass / mid-range units employed in the LGS 10. As a result she is just as dynamic, natural and musical as her larger sisters, and it is only in the bass range that she cannot stoop as low nor handle as much power; nevertheless, she offers a beautifully balanced sound image.Thanks to the sophisticated laminated construction technique the cabinets of the Lignum are rigid and totally resonance-free, even though the side walls are only 10 mm thick.
The real wood surfaces are sealed all round - no gaps or edges to interrupt the perfect design. The three hardwood veneers available are cherry, walnut and maple, and they feature an impressive silk gloss finish. The black and white painted versions also have a silk-gloss finish. Upon request the Lignum-series is also available as a high gloss version.
