WORK AND SOUND LIKE NEW
Featuring some of the most unusual speakers designs ever and highest quality components throughout, Model A200 offers grand life-like presentation comparable to that of 12" Tannoy dual concentric classics, at half the price.
Nice pair, dust-free, smoke-free
Properly restored foams; filleted type, correct density/elasticity.
Other than new foams, they are 100% original, never repaired.
Scarce 1st production variety, with no-film-coated midranges.
I owned both types and find the first one to be more natural sounding, as midrange is 90% of music and treated paper is the best material for mids.
A200 are the best speakers ever made by Boston Acoustics.
They are not 4 Ohm, like later A400, much easier to drive.
A-200 were shown at Chicago Consumer Electronics Show in 1980, with great reviews. When released, they were advertised as the speakers with unsurpassed real-world performance.
Boston A200 sound incredibly open, dynamic and lively;
They are transparent very low distortion speakers,
not quite monitors only because they have a certain degree of musicality to them. Still, they have impressively flat frequency curve.
They are not heavily colored like JBL L100s (oh, that woolly sound), not metal harsh like Klipsch Heresy, not struggling not to choke with frequency/size limitations like Cheviot.
I do not mention Advent and Dynaco because those are of distinctly lesser grade.
