    Ruark Prelude One in Yew finish

    Up for sale a matched pair of Ruark Prelude One in stunning Yew finish.
    One careful owner from new, they are six years old and come complete with original spikes and undamaged grilles.
    Beauty meets the eye, I have stripped them down to the original wood, built up a foundation and applied two coats of natural clear beeswax so that the new owner will be maintenance-free for a very long time.

    Conditions are 8.7/10, drivers and grilles are in perfect conditions and the woodwork is in top notch.
    Very high WAF these work very well in a small space too, please don`t take my word for it and come along for free coffee and demo in Edinburgh.
    ***NOW SOLD***

    i bought a pair of these brand new years ago, they are the `Reference' model with the slide on grilles and the finish is Yew as mentioned. new price was approx 975 rather than 2k though. lovely speakers.

    Admittedly I must have made some confusion on the RRP as they were around 1k in the last few examples (as these) + a 300 premium on the Yew finish.
    Please forgive any mistakes I`m doing on the way, I am learning day by day and any comment and/or advice is very much appreciated.

    I have a pair of these and they are marvellous. Just so natural and rich sounding.... Mine aren't quite as pretty as those though - that finish is stunning!

    I absolutely agree, they put to shame many more expensive speakers for the inner quality that they possess.
    Anybody that sees them can not stop but marvel at the fantastic intricacy the nature has to offer, a true piece of furniture no less.
    I have added some more pictures for you all, first comes first served as they say.
