A pair of Tom Danley influenced Yorkville U215 speakers bought from a DJ and used as main speakers in my HT system.
This is the premium black paint version and they're in very good condition, UP215 processor also available.

I prefer these to other high sensitivity, directivity controlled speakers and I've owned a lot of the older Tannoy, JBL, Klipsch designs.
Reason for selling is that I don't have any time to listen to my system anymore (baby is priority).
Local sale only (GTA, Hamilton).

Agreed here, impossible to do better for the $$$ IMO. Combine these with the DTS-10 you've got for sale for a ridiculously capable combination.

It's a nice combination, I feel humbled being complimented by yourself and papalock.

How do you compare the JTRs to the Yorkvilles? Do they have the same amount of midbass?

+1

I have yet to hear a DTS-10 in person, but objective measurements don't lie!

You've got +10 over reference easy right there. Man, $2,800 for the combo....I can't think of anything that would yield more bang for the buck.

No way...

I'd say the Noesis have more top end but give up midbass to the Yorks...

I can tell you that the JTRs are a bit more efficient (3db or so) but at the cost of a bit more extension vs. the U215. I've measured my 215's down to 19hz (-3db) in room. Both are fantastic setups but the value of the Yorkvilles can't be ignored.

You might have more luck if you ship. I had 4 freight shipped to me for $525. Not sure about the cost of a pair as all 4 were on a pallet. Great deal for someone.
