I will donate 15% of all sales during the month of September to Rebuild Texas (https://www.rebuildtx.org/). Please consider this before you give me a lowball offer. Thanks.

Here's a pair of speakers you don't see everyday (or any day).

These are an early pair of Sota Panoramas, serial numbers 1002A and 1002B. Does this mean they were the second pair built?

I emailed Sota and they had no info. Not helpful, except that they did answer my email.

Includes the original two boxes and packing materials. Shipping cost will be double for two boxes. Boxes are gonna need lots of tapes, but the packing is solid.

These were kept in their boxes in a climate controlled storage unit for many years (along with a Marantz 8b amp, a Marantz Model 9 amp, and a Marantz Model 19 receiver). Two of the boxes in the unit had labels from Take 5 Audio--a long time high end salon in New Haven, CT.

The surrounds on the 8-inch active woofers and the internal 8-inch passive drivers were disintigrated when I got the speakers, so I had them rebuilt by Dusty's speaker repair. (Dusty is in Danbury, CT and does excellent work. Find his store on ebay.)

Each of these speakers weighs 35 pounds. 16 inches tall, 12 X 12 at the base. The knuckle-rap test makes you think you banging on a piece of stone. (These cabinets resonate less that the cabinets on my Verity Audio Parsifal speakers, which are the solidest speakers I've ever had.)

Internet research shows me that later version of the Sota Panorama speakers did not have the port at the bottom that these speaker have. Velcro-attached foam grills are long gone.

I have no idea what to ask for these amazing and possibly unique speakers. How about 600 bux? How about if no one wants them at that price after a week I'll listen to reasonable offers.

Paypal users pay fees.

Local pick up and cash are always welcome. Bring a cd or LP for a listen.

Thank you.
