Some of the excess speaker inventory in the house has to go.
These are a pair of the original wood norh 7's, the one's that put norh on the map. They still work perfectly and sound great.
One cabinet has a major flaw, a gap that brings the rating of the speakers to 6/10. If not for the flaw they would easily rate 8 or 9. It has been photographed to make the flaw very obvious to avoid anyone being upset after purchase. The flaw isn't so stark in real life.
The defect does not extend through to the inside of the cabinet and should be an easy fix for someone who works with wood. A bit of properly tinted wood filler would do it nicely but I'd rather sell it as is than to be accused of trying to hide or cover up the issue.
Aside from that flaw they are in great condition. They have been in a non-smoking house and I'm the original owner. They have been treated well and sound as good as they did when new.
According to their website the price for a new pair is $1499 although I don't know if they are actually shipping this model any more. These are nicely priced at $649 (stands not included) on another audio site but will be less on this board. I know folks on this board. If interested make an offer.
Would prefer a NJ/DE/PA local sale but have the original shipping containers. Buyer pays shipping and payment fees. Continental US only.

Neat looking little speakers.
Are those ported (tiny ports out the small backside circumference)? How could/would you say they compare in sound to your 2pi's (aside from the obvious lack of bass extension).
Yep, ports out the rear. It's an interesting design.
It's not really possible for me to compare them to the 2 pi's. Never used them in the same room or with the same gear. Back in the day I also ran the norh's with tubes which was OK but they seem happier with solid state amplification (like most modern bookshelf speakers).
