Cash only, pickup in Medford.

I'm selling off a fairly large personal collection of stereo and home theater stuff. I am working on getting pictures and listing everything, but if there is something you're looking for, let me know. I have lots of speakers (from tiny 5.1 setups to large towers), subwoofers, receivers, preamps, amplifiers, and some accessories like stands, wall mounts, cables, speaker wire, etc. Can put together a package deal on a full system.

B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) is world renowned for their speakers - and usually they are very expensive and found in a dedicated, closed off room in a house. This line of speakers is designed to be more flexible, blending into the d├ęcor of a typical house, and being able to stand up to the wear and tear that comes with being out in a main room (or even outside). All while maintaining superb sound quality and a more affordable price point than most of their speakers.

This set is in Burgundy which was a fairly rare color (typically they were silver, black, or white).

LM1 Speakers:
The unique mounting system on the LM1s and the fact that they are weather resistant makes them a good "all-around" household speaker, they can be set on a shelf, or the base rotates around the back and becomes a wall mount (with 180 degree tilt and swivel adjustments). Can even be put in a bathroom or outdoors (protected from direct rain).
-2-way ported enclosure
-5" woofer and 1" tweeter
-Extruded, top mounted tweeter is a signature design from B&W, reduces interference and improves imaging
-Gold plated 5-way binding posts
-Weather resistant
-65hz to 22khz frequency response
-Fully tested, 100% functional, no damage or issues.
-Very good condition, only minor signs of use, includes all decorative covers for the screw holes in the base (often these are lost) as well as the allen wrenches (hidden in the bases) and their decorative covers. The wrenches are for adjusting how tight the "swivel" is, but you'll probably never need to use them.
PDF Manual/Spec Sheet (for the black version, same thing): https://www.bowerswilkins.com/on/demandware.static/-/Library-Sites-bowers_europe_shared/de_DE/v1699368010496/archive-manuals/eng_fp11614_lm1-black_info_sheet.pdf

AS1 Subwoofer
The AS1 is a compact, 6.5" ported sub. 6.5" seems tiny for a sub, but it really is an impressive unit. Not only did they do a good job of tuning the enclosure and port (their patented FlowPort) to get high output from it, but the small diameter of the sub means it is very fast and accurate, giving excellent, "tight" sound quality. You can literally watch the bass drum in rock and roll if you remove the grill (double bass is especially entertaining). What would be a blur on a larger sub is clear, defined movements and very tight, controlled bass.
-6.5" high-excursion woofer with oversized magnet
-Built in, 85 watt high-current amplifier
-Top mounted controls for power, volume, and crossover
-Simple, 2 position crossover selection between "music" and "movie" (personally I just leave it on Music for everything).
-Fully tested, 100% functional, no damage or issues. Also Very good condition with minor (if any) signs of use.

While this isn't a full surround sound system - it will provide excellent sound for TV/Movies and music alike. It would be well suited for either a living room or an office/den. Aimed at people who just want good sound without a lot of speakers, calibrations, setup, etc. This system, according to B&W, was specifically aimed at 2 channel hi-fidelity systems, but some people would buy 5 of the speakers and use it for full surround sound also.

Actually this set (along with a receiver or amplifier) makes excellent PC speakers too. Obviously overkill for the average PC, but if you listen to a lot of music from your PC or use it for watching movies, streaming TV, etc, they would be a great match.

This system retailed for $600 (actually I think the Burgundy was $50 more).
