AAD 7001i Monitor Loudspeaker (pre-owned) pair

Regular price $5,500.00

 AAD 7001i Monitor Loudspeaker in fair condition. Cosmetically good, except for a scratch on one speaker's bottom side (see image), and dent on one cone (which would have no effect on sound quality}

Overall a great opportunity to acquire a sought-after speaker that competes in the top echelon (new US$12500/ C$17000) at a fraction of the original price.

 

 "The 7001i was designed by AAD Founder Phil Jones, a noted speaker designer who designed the Acoustic Energy AE-1, Boston Acoustics Lynnfield 300 and 500 monitors, the critically-acclaimed Platinum Audio Solo and Reference One speaker, and AAD 2001."

"The 7001i, however, is something else. The AAD 7001i utilizes a neodymium magnet horn ribbon tweeter for the midrange/high frequencies and a 5.25" front-mounted bass driver coupled to a 6.5" rear-mounted passive radiator. The 12dB/octave crossover operates at 3kHz Factory rated specifications include a 25Hz to 60kHz, frequency response (+/-2dB). Impedance is 8 Ohms nominal. Internal wiring is from Transparent Audio."

"The AAD (American Acoustic Development) Model 7001i tested here is in a class all by itself. Its small size, advanced ribbon tweeter design, and incredible bass from a small enclosure make it comfortable in recording studio/mastering control rooms or an audiophile's living room. It ain't cheap at US$12,500 per pair but those with some jingle in their pocket (or maybe plastic in their wallet), will not mind the price."

"I was floored. I've done acoustic and electric guitar and bass recording with my band, so I know what they should sound like and it is like the one is hearing with said speakers. It's a true reference monitor as it was marketed."
