Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.

Alta Audio - Celesta FRM-2 - 2-way Full-Range Monitors (Pair)
The Alta Audio Celesta FRM-2 Full Range Monitor is a jewel of audiophile loudspeaker engineering and design housed in an ultra-hard ultra-high gloss polyester finished cabinet featuring both modern and retro design elements. While its aesthetic beauty is obvious, its engineering is the culmination of 35 years of loudspeaker design expertise guiding a 2-year research and development project. The speaker incorporates the latest state of the art components in a new cabinet featuring DampHard: a multi-density layered construction that presents a hard surface externally while damping out unwanted resonances. The result is a clean silent background on which the fine details of the music are evident. Alta Audio's custom-designed drivers produce exceptionally fast, clean, powerful, and deep bass thanks to the use of their proprietary Alta XTL bass tuning system which gives this monitor speaker bass you would expect from a full-sized reference speaker.
Internally, the speaker uses the highest grade silver foil capacitors and extra-large Litz wire inductors with ten gauge deoxygenated copper wire in a special configuration that gently blends the drivers with such accuracy that vocal and instrumental details are presented with remarkable clarity, and the natural timbre of the music is preserved. The elimination of diffraction distortion combined with the accuracy of the crossover creates a huge listening window; the speakers disappear and are replaced with a clear three-dimensional image of the instruments and vocals along with the space in which the music was performed.
From the first prototype through the many steps to the beta level production unit one thing was kept in mind: the sound of live music. Live to recorded comparisons were used throughout the process of design for fine-tuning the sound of the Alta Celesta FRM-2. That is Alta Audio's reference, and what these speakers were designed to recreate.
