Reluctantly, I’m selling my beloved Emerald Physics CS2 loudspeakers. I purchased these from Reference Audio a little over a year ago – I believe they were Peter’s demo pair. He made some modifications to the compression driver, milling out the rear plate to allow dipole propagation over all frequencies. Otherwise, these are stock standard, and boy do they sound good!

In as-new condition, these speakers require a bit of space and sound best a couple of feet from the back wall, but with the included DBX Driverack Pro speaker management system you’re able to conform the speakers to the acoustics of most rooms. The Behringer ECM8000 microphone is also included, so you can run the auto-setup, or manually setup frequency response, room correction, crossover, etc, to deliver the most compelling music right in your room.

I have the shipping boxes, so while I’m sure they’ll survive shipping in perfect condition, given their size and weight it’d be expensive (to you the purchaser), so pick-up is preferred.

I have to admit I never thought I’d be parting with these speakers – music simply sounds more real, and less artificial. I’m not sure if it’s the open baffle dipole propagation, the configurability of the system as a whole, or simply a reflection of Clayton Shaw’s genius, but these really are compelling speakers. So, if you love music but can do without the artifice, I suspect you’ll love these as much as I do. Good listening!
