Wow, pretty quiet in here! I hope everyone is having a good 2019 so far.
So a little story for you all. I decided to list some of my old Aperion speakers on Craigslist this weekend since they aren't doing any good sitting in my attic. I came to a box of gloss black 6Bs and decided I didn't need them since I also have a pair in cherry. I got these as A stock speakers back in my first "tour of duty" with Aperion back in 2007-2013. I opened up the box and was astounded at what I saw.
First off, these speakers are absolutely pristine. Even though the box had been opened at some point, there wasn't even a single fingerprint on them, truly in perfect condition. But even more incredible than that, the serial numbers on these guys are I6B000001X and I6B000002X! That's right the very first pair of 6Bs ever produced, a little piece of Aperion history!
As for the speakers themselves, I think the 6Bs are among some of the best speakers Aperion ever produced. They have a remarkably warm, "European" style sound with tons of bass for a bookshelf. They are also low sensitivity at 82 dB, which helps the bass output, so you'll need a decent amount of power to get the most out of them.
Anyway, I figured I would offer them up here before I put them on Craigs as perhaps one of you would like to own them. Shipping isn't going to be cheap since the box weighs 60 lbs, but if you're interested shoot me a PM and we can work something out. Here are a couple pics below:
