On Sale! now $299! wow ! These are marked waaay down! on ebay these are listed for up to $1,500...I am ready to move these! What you see here is something very Rare...and cool this is a pair of the Famous Sonab OA-4 type 2 speakers from 1973 also known as Stig Carlsson speakers after the famous inventor.
These were way ahead of their time in terms of hi-fidelity Audio and are many times paired with the Famous Bang and Olufsen Tuners, receivers and players. These were very high end and expensive for that time at $300-500 a pair and that was in 1973! Today these are so rare especially the cabinets in the white laquered teak, they command prices from $700 and up on Ebay and other online sites. This pair comes with pig-tailed raw wire ends ready to connect into standard audio-out clips on the back of most Receivers, tuners and sub woofers. You can always retrofit and wire these with the newest cables to fit today's stereos and Televisions. I have run these thru my bass sub-woofer connected to my computer and they sound awesome! I would love to hear these connected to a turntable and if you are an audiophile especially for the high end vintage b& O or Mirantz or old sony, Technics, JVC or kenwood systems you need these! Here are the specs for these, they are
