Interest Check: SDA SRS 3.1TL and Dared SL2000a

trav0810trav0810 Posts: 991
I went to Axpona this year and fell in love with the Legacy speakers. I guess it's time to start selling off some stuff to build up the bank!

I have a really clean pair of 3.1's that have the RDO tweeters and the crossovers have been redone, but not to the "boutique" standards. They have all Solen caps.

The Dared came from this forum and had been recapped. It comes with a Brimar rectifier tube and a pair of Mullard and a pair of GE tubes.

I'm thinking around $1000 for the speakers and $350 for the Dared. (Plus actual shipping which would be about $15 priority mail flat rate box)

    I will give a shameless plug for Travis. These speakers spent some time at my place before ending up with Travis. They sound spectacular and are in great condition. Travis has sice upgraded the XO's. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer pair. The only reason they left my place is I got some 2.3TLs.

    Well, now I’m really broke... I’ve read too many praises about the Dared from forum members to pass this up.

    Temptation gone Micah!

    And Dan... STOP TAGGING ME in these FS ads! B) Although I have been looking for a tubed pre and this should be a nice addition. On the positive side, I can ‘close’ my WTB thread...

    If someone was really interested in the SDA's, I'd be willing to drive a couple hours to meet.
