Nice Pair Of Kestrel Hot Rods in Toronto- Good price

From the listing

"For those not familiar with this fantastic speaker, the Kestrels are a two-way time-coherent floor standing speaker utilizing transmission-line base loading. In the Hot-Rod version, the cabinet is entirely deadened by a an extra dose of the proprietary compound called Keldamp that Meadowlark uses in its speakers (one reviewer said: knocking on these speakers sounds like knocking on three inches of solid wood); the Hot Rods also include upgraded internal wiring and caps, an impressive upgrade to the crossover and two pairs of sturdy binding posts for bi-wiring. They are relatively easy to drive with a sensitivity of 89dB 2.83V 1M.

But more important, is how they sound - they have surprisingly good bass for a speaker of their size and the glorious mid-range Meadowlark was famous for; the highs are smooth and buttery without sacrificing subtle detail. Sound-staging and imaging... have a precision of placement and scaling of instruments that's truly impressive."

Are you still using Keldamp? In conjunction with your more recent "Peeps deadener"? Just curious, thanks!

Had one of my best listening experiences at an audio shop listening to Hot Rodded Kestrels. I’ll be all over a pair that comes up local to me.
