Need assistance

Anyone near this guy?

https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/650039736-bowes-amp-wilkins-804-d3-bampw-diamond-series-3-floor-standing-speakers/

He doesn’t ship. I would like eyes laid on it and assistance with shipping.

Will compensate.

Thx

    I can save everyone the work. I have heard them and they are among the worst speakers I have heard at the price point.

    may I offer a suggestion?

    Unfortunately, not many have heard Salk products outside of the large audio gatherings. Their cabinetry is beyond reproach and choice of speakers are world class

    this option is fairly priced, IMHO (no affil) and is a good representation of the "typical Salk offering"

    Now that the company is no more, prices appear to be on the rise

    5.5h is too far
    Don’t worry about it, I’m sure something else will pop up.
    My friend likes bowers so I was going to keep him in the same direction
    But the wife isn’t sure about the top microphone looking tweeter assembly so who knows
