[FS] Ascendo C8-C Floor Standing Speakers

Recommended Posts

Super Wammer

After much careful deliberation, my Ascendo C8-C piano black floor standing speakers are now up and available for rehoming... they do so much very well, but need a bigger room than I have to express themselves, especially with regards the impressive bass they produce. From my own experiences, listening rooms of 10m long or bigger need apply. 😮

These retailed for €6900 new and I’m the second owner, having had them in my system for nearly 2 years next month. They’re in great condition and only suffer from minor swirls and scuffs on the mirror black finish. A second pair of taller stands will also be included in the sale... the shorter box stands can be seen in the images below and were my preferred way of using them:

For full spec and dimensions, check out the manufacturers link below:

I’m looking for £2500 collected, or close offers... so if you don’t ask, you don’t get 😄

No boxes are included, I approached Ascendo and was quoted €350+ for replacements but didn’t take them up on their offer, so it’d be strictly collection only from CR5/close to Jct 6 (A22) on the M25... payment via PayPal gift or Nelson Readies (cash) on collection...

Thanks for looking :) 
Pete

Both sets of stands have adjustable feet... :)

Here you go Gary... I should have photographed them when posting the original listing but they are currently doing temporary duties under my CS77As 😃

Always been interested in Ascendo speakers. Sadly theyve been veto’ed, due to the black finish, but out of interest Would they work with 16-18w of SET amplification? 6C33C based.

That's a shame Jake... during the two years I've had these, they've only really been used in conjunction with my Accuphase E306 integrated... however, as can be seen below, I did have a pair of Doge 9 Monoblocks on loan and used the Accuphase in bypass mode as a pre-amp... but looking at the spec for the Doge mono-blocks, they were high power power amps...

Incidentally, I've still got scars on my shins from lifting on of those 50kg monoblocks... but I digress :)
