    SDA SRS 2.3's for 900 bones. Fair price?

    Well, according to TonyB, 9 bones = $900, so 900 bones would equal $81,000. Therefore, my answer is: "No, that isn't a fair price."

    Actually, that would be $90,000. :p

    I'm gonna pull a "doc" @mhardy6647 on ya:
    I'm not the one you need to "pull that on". I wouldn't dream of saying "bones". Or "large" for "one thousand". I had never heard it or seen it before he used it recently, so I was doing my calculations based on his usage. I do, however, stand by my claim that $81,000 for ANY Polk speaker is too much. B)

    Fair enough. I must have applied the math to that incorrectly. I still think that is too (not "to", not "two") much. Even one large grand bone, and I do believe any dog would agree. :p

    Agreed. $900 is too much for 2.3's... although I practically stole mine for $450 (or was it $400?, hmm, it was several years ago), with the originals boxes, in mint condition...

    What about 900 clams?

    I was saying that $90,000 was too much. I don't know much about 2.3's. I know more about the TL version because that is what I have. Is this "bone" business a sexual thing or is it more of a caveman/trading thing?

    Do clams have bones?

    One time on Scooby-Doo, a skeleton was cackling and Shaggy told him to "clam up". I think you are onto something. Hey, are you a doctor, by the way? :p

    I had a skateboard back in 1977 or so. Right about the time 10-speed bikes were all the rage. :p
