These were purchased from an authorized dealer in March of 2016. They are wonderful sounding and absolutely beautiful to look at. They are just too big for my new listening room since I recently moved. They have some minor dings on the bases and a couple on the top rear from being moved around. These minor blemishes could easily be concealed with a product from a Home Depot. I just didn't get around to doing it. They perform flawlessly.
There are a few excellent reviews online and are some of the best speakers available for anywhere near the price. I have owned many speakers including a few Wilson models that these directly compete with. The Ushers easily outperformed my former Sasha 3's which cost twice the price.
I do not have the original boxes and crates from the factory. These require pick up only in Grand Rapids, MI. They weigh about 190 lbs each.
