    I waited ... vewy qwietwy ... lest the deal get away!
    Dang, sneaked right through my backyard and by my house. Nice score. After hearing these speakers I am also a big fan of them.

    When Heather is done collecting hers I may look to add a pair for my office system.

    I always thought Urei Heep was a band

    Thanks Dave, I wasn't familiar with any of those models. Google machine searched LE12C and saw this thread from '07:

    Hauled the Vandy 2CEs upstairs and brought the 2nd pair of 809As downstairs -
    set them up on some old teak chairs.

    Have to give this some time to eval ... tho Master & Commander sounds great, of course ...

    I pulled the grill off for the photos, but the grills normally stay on to protect those blue horns ...

    Found 4 of these chairs on the curb for trash pickup a few years back & put them in the shed.
    The scandinavian wood design is a match for a set of 4 I bought off CL for our kitchen -
    they just need new seat & back pads created and upholstered (simple DIY project).

    Anyway, when I was thinking of a stand for the UREIs for side surround, I remembered the chairs and thought - why not?
    The height is good when seated or reclined on the sofa, and I love the nice wood shape and color. Teak, I suppose.

    Threads like this make me question what I am about to do, sell my set of Urei809's. I've had them for 20 years and have gone so far as to replace the cabinets with identical (internal dimensions, bracing, ports, etc) cabinets but made from walnut plywood - the fresh cabinets made them sound even better (tighter). After 20 years I think I need to downsize - then this thread makes me question it.

    I cannot imagine how you found all those sets.

    So, I've probably seen those gorgeous wood Cabinet UREIs in various threads -
    did you ever sell them, or did you keep them?

    We are just amazed by the sound every time we play a movie in that room ...
    or a concert video with good sound ...
    I recently got the "Invitation to Illumination" Bluray of Carlos Santana and John McLaughlin Live at Montreux 2011
    and its a joy to listen to!

    This project will be soon in use as main monitors in my private studio, and yesss the 809 and the 18' was and old idea, it took me 25 years for realize it, now i'm retired and get more time, by the way, a friend of mine who get 813B said that it sound much better than the 813, the 809 get air and deliver good low médium, and i get deep bass, maybe i will thought about change the high JBL hornet later. Some new pict in situation soon.

    This thread has me wondering: What is the accepted pronunciation of "UREI".

    I realize it's simply an acronym for United Recording Electronics Industries, but I've never heard it pronounced "U—R—E—I, like JBL. So what is the accepted way to say it? "Youree" or "Youreye"? Something else?

    Anxious to put this one to rest!
