Sound Lab A-1's for sale in Austin
May 4th, 2015 at 11:43am
 
Hello,
These are ready for listening not for upgrading, as I just personally delivered to and returned from the Sound Lab factory in Gunnison, Utah, 1 week ago. Panels are the ABS construction (not wood) so they ar more precise and won't warp over time, non-PX model, 90 degree design (so they have a wider listening sweet-spot than wider-radius panels. They underwent factory test analysis and tweaks and then passed all tests with flying colors. New black nylon fabrics installed. These have ZERO hours since return from the SL factory and are still wrapped in factory plastic sleeves and bubble-wrap. I auditioned them at SL factory after upgrades, and they sound great and are ready to play.

Back plates are the Ultimate model and also went to SL factory for full testing analysis and tweaking, returning 1 week ago. Plates have toroid upgrades (not II), new bass transformer in one and new HVRC box in one. They then passed all performance characteristics with flying colors. ZERO hours on the plates. I auditioned them at SL factory after upgrades, they sound great and are ready to play.

Pick up in Austin is recommended (although not mandatory). The panels and back plates being offered comprise the complete sound reproduction portion of the A-1's, they can be used as is, without frames. The lower frequencies, asthetics (& WAF) would improve with the addition of wood or metal frames to add mass and rigidity. No wood crates included.

Used wood frames are available, commonly ranging in price from $1,000. - 2,000.. Or have your own metal frames made locally to your desired specs. I have a couple leads on available frames I can help locate if interested.

$8,995. Considerably less than half the replacement cost...currently, the Sound Lab A-1PX price begins at $31,100.00 per pair and up.

more pix available upon request.

Both the cores and the backplates on this pair are fresh from a trip to Sound Lab's offices in Gunnison, Utah. They underwent factory test analysis and tweaks and then passed all tests with flying colors. New black nylon fabrics installed at the factory. These speakers have ZERO hours since return from the SL factory and are still wrapped in factory plastic sleeves and bubble-wrap. I auditioned them at SL factory after upgrades. They sound great and are ready to play.

Panels are the ABS construction (not wood), 90 degree radius design for better dispersion than the 45 degree version, so they have a wider listening sweet-spot than wider-radius panels.

Back plates are the Ultimate model plates. They also went to SL factory for full testing analysis and tweaking. Plates have toroid upgrades, new bass transformer in one and new HVRC box in one. They then passed all performance tests at the SL factory. These backplates have ZERO hours, since I auditioned them at SL factory after upgrades, They too sound great and are ready to play.

Pick up in Austin, TX is recommended (although not mandatory). The panels and back plates being offered comprise the complete sound reproduction portion of the A-1's, they can be used as is, without frames.

Reasonably priced used wood frames are available. Or have your own frames made locally to your desired specs. I have a couple leads on available frames I can help locate if interested.
