    I'll give you $4.73 and a lightly used cheese doodle for them.

    Pffft... I have a used blow up doll named Shirley, half a bottle of Jim Beam Rye, two beef sticks and a Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon 8 track that I'll give him for them.

    Top that.... :p

    Too rich for my blood, but at least I know where my ex and bottle of Jim Beam got to...

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?... Got TFM ?

    Guy up in Denton north of FtWorth must be his cousin. Had a pair of SDA-1A without IC and no grills wanting $800 obo. Cabinets looked like they'd been tied behind the limo when he and his sister got married. Said the drivers were fine though and sounded like new.

    The various offerings of vintage Polks out there leave you scratching your head. Either crackhead pricing (west coast comes to mind)....or someone's partaking said crack, asking big $$$ for a pile of excrement.

    Pair of SDA 2 and another pair that needs identification for $400, down by the Jersey shore. Seller says he got them boxed and thought they were brand new (the SDAs I guess). He may have cable.

    What's the difference between a crackhead and a partaker of crack? :D

    | Front - Dynaudio Emit M20 | Center - N/A | Rear - Polk Monitor 4 | Sub - N/A |
    | AVR - Yamaha Aventage RX-A1020 | Preamp - Dared MC-7P | Amp - B&K Reference 4420 |
    | Turntable - Yamaha PX-3 | Cartridge - Dynavector DV-20X2H | Digital Source - AURALiC Aries Mini |
    | TV - LG 60" 4K | Gaming - Xbox One - PS3 - New 3DS XL - Nvidia Shield TV |

    This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality
    Embrace this moment, remember, we are eternal
    All this pain is an illusion
  • xschopxschop Posts: 661
    A crackhead will take $20 for a pristine set of SDA's, whereas someone smoking crack wants $2000 for an abused set.

    The crack pipe was passed around the circle but he was not a partaker so he waved it away. He could have partook but declined to partake because if he'd partaken he'd be a crackhead.

    Yes!!! The 2 bottom central pair are (appear to be) upper end Sony APM, especially the black pair (port configuration is different between the mid and upper end series).



    Why do you ask? o:)

    I'd be all about the APM AV-930s (black pair). The others are the little brothers to the 690s I have in my avatar.

    From what I gather, it's the SRS since that's the items pictured. The description is a stock copy of Polks literature.

    To add further confusion, the positive binding post nuts are on the left but the sticker says they are supposed to be on the right.

    The most important thing to find out is what type of interconnect socket it has. If it's pin blade then they are 1.2's and the binding post nuts are in the correct position regardless of what the sticker says because Polk is notorious for using old stock on newer models. If the socket is blade blade than they are first generation srs's and the positive binding post nuts should be swapped over to the right side.

    If someone here on the Forum ends up buying them, remove the four screws on The Binding post cup to make sure everything is correct.

    I contacted the seller, he states that the interconnect is pin/pin. What?
