I have a pair of KEF XQ10 bookshelf speakers I bought new in 2013. They've been gently used for approximately 5-6 months (never pushed hard) and are in immaculate, as-new condition.
These are perhaps the best-looking speakers I have ever seen in real life. The piano-gloss real red Mahogany finish coupled with the gorgeous brushed black aluminum faces are superbly executed... This speaker easily hangs with the higher-end Sonus Fabers in the looks department, albeit with a more reserved overall design, which I think works better in most living rooms. They make fantastic small home theater fronts, as the sound signature is extremely detailed and transparent. Voices come through with amazing clarity (a good thing with some of the terrible sound-mixing being done in films recently). And they are absolutely guaranteed to be girlfriend/wife-friendly.
Both the spikes and the rounded rubber placement pads are included. Unfortunately, I disposed of the original boxes, but they will be packed securely for shipping. Speaking of shipping, it will reflect actual cost, however you'd like them shipped. I'd recommend USPS as they are far and away the most cost-effective and (in my personal experience) reliable. Payment by Paypal and no overseas transactions, please. Local pickup in Los Angeles area also available. Thanks!
