Dimensions 100w × 117h × 47.6cm (with stand) 73.5 kg ea

A rare pair of Technics Audio Flat Panel speakers. Bespoke and made to order in very low numbers, they were the ultimate demonstration of Technics technological prowess and commitment to high-end music reproduction at the end of the classic Japanese hi-fi era. A luxurious and technically advanced loudspeaker design produced for just 2 years- 1988 and 1989. The same speaker series are pictured above on the stage at the Vienna Opera House being used for live monitoring.
