‘Time warp’ pair of JPW Sonata speakers finished in a rare, handmade real walnut veneer cabinet.
They are in excellent condition. There are some minor knocks and scratches if you get up very close to them otherwise they would be described 'as new'.
All imperfections have been detailed at http://www.makeasound.net/for-sale.html
They feature an Audax tweeter and ELAC mid/bass driver in a sealed / infinite baffle cabinet, and sound amazing.
A wonderful, award-winning, neutral-sounding pair of speakers that have been hand made in England.
A verbatim transcript of their review in What Hifi May 1991 can be found at: http://www.makeasound.net/1/post/2012/10/jpw-sonata-a-review-from-what-hifi-may-1991.html
Pretty much impossible to find in this condition, in this finish, for sale, anywhere.
I consider this to be the most detailed, balanced review of the JPW Sonata speakers.
I particular like their neutral sound, punchy bass-lines, ease of drive with low powered amps and non-fussy positioning... And furthermore, that wood finish is divine...They're like a piece of furniture!
Frequency range 70Hz – 20kHz (+/- 2dB @ 2m on axis)
Sensitivity 87dB for pink noise input of 1W
Impedance 8 Ohms nominal
Power rating 70W Continuous

Towards the end of the production of the JPW Sonata, Richer Sounds acquired JPW and later editions are finished in vinyl-wrap veneer to significantly reduce production costs. The sound and finish, and ultimate value of the later editions are much less than the real wood veneer versions, and especially, the natural walnut (and also the ash) finish edition.
