When I was in college in Dallas, Texas. I bought a pair of Amrita Audio speakers in 1995. I believe they were around 1200 USD at that time.

Now I live in China, and I'd like to bring them over here, I really miss my speakers. Recently I ve heard a lots of good things about them. I wonder how much would it cost to pack and ship them from Houston to Hong Kong.....haha. I know I am a dreamer.

I left them in my friend's home with 2 boys. I just hope that they are OK........(sigh)

Truly yours

Hi Riad,

I agreed with you on Amrita Audio.I was also in same situation with you where I was studied in US in early 1990's.As we aware off students have very limited budget....hahaha.However I did managed to listen and demo some of their models.Most of them were totally out of my range, high end ranging from USD400 to USD2000 at that time, in 1990's.Just imagine how much its cost if still available nowadays.
I was really amazed by the sound they produced, a true my cup of tea.For months a stress my savings and I managed to buy its wonderful walnut finished Amrit Motif bookshelf speakers.It cost me USD599 when I bought it in 1993.Bring back home eagerly,excited to listen to its performance with my system.I was glued on my coach once I set up these Amrit Motif speakers with my system.I never thought it can easily be driven with decent 40 watts NAD intergrated amplifier.So amazed by its bass,deep yet not boomy.Vocal clarity was so sweet,soundstaging just like being there and imaging was outstanding.What else can I say,money wisely spend.

Regards,
James

I have inherited a pair of Amrita Allegra speakers but have no tech. data on them. I know they are about 20 years old but have not hooked them up until I can find out true input impedance?

Hey Amirita fans best speakers ever the company that made them were in Iowa they went under don't know why. I bought a pair about 1995 they came in a beautiful piano white enamel finish they were around $4000 very high priced I lost them in a divorce. I would love to find another pair.

Marie, I’m very familiar with the Amrita speaker line including the MSRP from the 90’s and the approx repair cost if they aren’t in perfect condition. I’m also looking to purchase a pair if they are in great shape.
