Snell Acoustics Type K.5 MkII Bookshelf Speakers
Snell Acoustics made great speakers right down the road from us, initially in Newburyport, and later in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Snell Acoustics were founded in 1976 by Peter Snell to develop a speaker that "disappeared" sonically; providing the listener with uncolored and pure music. Snell's approach combined excellent quality drivers sourced from Europe, and hand-built, hand-matched crossovers to ensure those drivers were performing at Peter's highest possible standards.
Fast forward about 2 decades from Peter's first designs to the Snell K.5 MkII Bookshelf speakers we have here. The K.5 MkII's slim cabinet design and "Placement Switching" equalization allow for excellent versatility and flexibility. The driver complement includes a 1-inch (25mm) black-anodized aluminum dome tweeter and 6.5-inch composite cone (165mm) bass unit provides midrange and bass to 48Hz (-3dB).
These speakers come with their original grilles and are in terrific 8/10 condition only the slightest signs of wear at all on the black ash wood veneer. These speakers are a great value and provide excellent punch and presence with any type of music. We have had many pair of Snell designs here at the shop and these are true performers, offered at a very reasonable price.
Demos are available in Lawrence, MA. Also, we have two matching Snell center channel speakers to go with these, should you want to use them in a surround sound setup.
