Here's a set of super rare speaker from my private collection. These were refinished years ago to a gorgeous high gloss walnut finish.

Likely the nicest looking and best working set you are going to find.
Perfect for a collector or someone that wants a rare studio monitor.

Both speaker grills which are also included present like new (not pictured).

This is a full range speaker and was able to provide a big full range sound in my fairly large listening room thanks to the 12" woofer with its huge magnet structure. They play clean AND loud.

These will ship for a flat $450 anywhere within the lower 48 US states. If you're outside of this area please contact us for a quote as we ship worldwide. Local courier is also available.

Brand Background:
Tandberg was an electronics manufacturer located in Norway. The company began in the radio field, but became more widely known for their reel to reel recorders as well as cassette decks.

Several owners since new.

Amplifier Recommendations:
Both solid state and tube should pair well with this unit. I would recommend 50 watts or so, but up to 200.

Room Size Recommendation:
Mid to Large Size Room

Single set of screw down terminals.

General Sound:
Full range warm sound capable of great detail and dynamics.  

Cosmetic Condition:
We rated this a 7 with moderate signs of use and wear. See our detailed rating description here.

Drivers and baffle look like new. Cabinets are near perfect with the exception of a lighter stain that has come through the finish. It is not a scratch or water mark, just a discoloration under the finish.

Working Condition, Technical Notes:
Working properly, fully tested in our lab and listening room.  

Speakers and grills.

Will be packed using our highly developed in-house process and custom packing materials.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:
Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
