Swans Diva 2.1 Bookshelf Speakers C3 Center Speaker, and Stands

I have for sale a pair of Swans Diva 2.1 bookshelf speakers and C3 center speaker in Black Cherry with matching stands. The 2.1s are in excellent condition both physically and functionally. The C3 has a small chip in the piano black finish on one corner that has been touched and isn't very noticeable. The stands for the 2.1s are 30" and have metal columns/top-plate and MDF base plate. The stand for the center is all MDF and 13" I believe.



I'm selling the entire package for $400 which is an absolute steal... current price new for the 2.1s in BC is $450 and C3 in BC is $400, and the stands were around $150 and $50 respectively. I also have a pair of Onkyo MC35 bookshelf speakers, also cherry color, that would make great surrounds... I will throw these in for free to anyone picking up at my home in Douglasville. I don't have the original packaging and the size/shape of the speakers and weight of the stands makes shipping costly and complex. I would prefer to keep this a local transaction.

I'm selling these wonderful speakers because we are converting the theater room into a bit more general-use family room... we have toddlers running around, so heavy speakers on stands are a no-no. I've just build an acoustically transparent screen and will be installing Sonance THX-LCR in-walls behind it.

I live in Douglasville, GA and work in Atlanta/Smyrna (right at I-75 and I-285)... local pickup at my home in Douglasville would be best but I can also meet near Douglasville in the evening/weekends or near Smyrna/Atlanta around lunch time during the week.

It looks like shipping will be somewhere around $35 per speaker. For anyone interested in shipping, please let me know. I'd prefer to keep the 2.1s and C3 together. The stands can not be shipped.

PM me if interested! Thanks!

for what it's worth I recently bought a NR818 to replace my NR1007 and felt it a mistake. I resold the 818 instead and kept the 1007. The build quailty, look and feel of the 818 was less than the 1007. The xt32 didn't do anything for me, and I lost a seperate subwoofer out. I liked the newer internet functions on the 818, but overall felt it was a slight downgrade, and so just kept my 1007. Good luck with your sale - this is a solid receiver.

I know wholeheartedly going in that it will be a downgrade. That said, I've significantly downgraded my speakers as well (Sonance THX In-Walls replaced the Swans up front) and the NR1007 is major overkill. I think the NR818 or even NR809 will be plenty of AVR (probably still overkill) for now and make an excellent pre-pro in the future when I have a larger room and more demanding speakers, likely paired with an Emotiva XPA-3.

Bump with prices lowered for both the NR1007 and Swans speakers.

Trade fell through on the Onkyo NR1007... it's been re-listed in its own listing.

Hello Again - I contacted you about a month ago regarding the 2.1's and indicated that if you were interested in shipping them to 87508, I'd be interested in purchasing them - so if shipping is an option - let me know how much you would take for the 2.1's only - don;t need the stands. Thanks
