    Which version ? Not that it matters much, each one was pretty good. The Revel Salon 2's were nice, but like everything else with higher end speakers, your upstream electronics will play a huge roll. Always liked Revel, speakers and subs both, which their subs are no slouches either.

    Yeah, I can't see them either.

    Did they price them well ? You usually don't see those puppies up for sale much, let alone for sale for a period of time.

    $1k? Doesn't sound right unless there was something wrong with them?

    Ya the price scared me as well. Seemed low from what I read about them. They were about 10k new in 2000.

    Ad was pulled marked sold, but something seemed strange about the woman and the pictures ("a one owner that didn't know how to remove grill covers????) Just didn't know enough about those speakers to go mess with it. Maybe missed a deal or dodged a bullet. Rather miss a deal as opposed to need a proctologist. When it comes down to it even after getting my" read on" not sure if they would be a replacement for my L1590 anyway (damn I love them)
