    I was watching Craigs list off and on and last night I see this person listing those Rotel items and I kind-of saw his ads minutes after they were posted . So I had a good shot at being the first to respond but I thought the prices were high on a lot of the pieces and speakers too. They are selling a pr. of Pinnacle BIG BOYs. Man I'd like to have them but they want like 750.00. I can buy a set of Infinity or Polk Big boys for similar or a little more of course.

    I'm glad I asked this forum for advice on the big Rotel AMP.

    As far as first dibs in deals of the day thread, I think we ought to allow somebody else get a chance to come where we have already been. I'm about out of space since I bought that Church's sound system. Man are they, BIG speakers! Look at this ONE sub again on a dolly and then on top of another;

    and the upper 15" full range speakers; These 6 uppers also have horn tweeters. ;)
    sktg812w6slg.jpg
    and then 12" upper full rangers to finish the set;

    I really need to get this set-up in the back room somehow! :p

    I think I WON something when this set was put into my hands for 100.00. o:)

    Do it Tony! Show her who's man of the house :p

    That task would def. have to be done out there in the cottage. That's where the collection( :D ) is anyway. My house couldn't hold all the stereos and speakers + the furniture in here at the same time. Not even a small chance.

    So anything I do out there is out of her sight for the most part. :)

    That’s my basement! She rarely goes down there so for me it’s all man cave! :)

    My wife came home today while my friend and I were out in the cottage.

    She came in to see who owned the van and to mainly let me know she was home. ;)

    She came in and turned her back on the Tritons. Talked to us for a while, while the Tritons were playing behind her too. :o When she left, she just turned right and walked out. She never saw them! .. PHEW!

    Well, he is still posting. Or is it Tony's wife posting so we dont become suspicious??? ;)
  • ClipdatClipdat Posts: 4,725
    He's got so many speakers in his collection, that it would have been impossible for her to know which pair was hooked up and playing.

    Strength in numbers.

    You guys are FUNNY! You're making me smile, for real. :D B)

    The ones being all black cloth, they were pretty much camouflaged in front of the upper wall of book self speakers. The speakers are placed further back from what this picture shows. It's like they're in the shadows being a shadow. :D I need a new camera. My lens is scratched. I have a new kodak one somewhere. :#

    The JBL HLS series are VERY NICE! They're similar to Polk's RT series but a little brighter. At my age, 60, the brightness helps me but might hurt a younger ear, maybe not.

    There is some RT35's. ;) But the other Polks are RT3000P's upper speakers. They're a little smaller than the 55's. I have some 55's above that door though. (Thank you Jessie! @F1nut )

    There are some JBL SVA 1800s for sale locally ive been eyeballing. Also see many HLS. My wife guerenteed will see another set if i tried to sneak them in. No doubts! :'(

    I also had RT35s and 55s. I do regret letting the 55s go. Traded them for a protien skimmer for my fish tank.

    I don't understand if your wife will approve of or not, if you get another pair of speakers.

    I regretted selling a set of 55's also. But they came right back..LOL. :) :D B)

    Then thanks to another member and others on a road trip took a side road to meet me one night to allow me to get the Rosewood finish to match my RT3000P towers. Plus, he added fantastic stands too! We met in one spooky middle of nowhere gas station.It was new and well lit, but man was it dark all around us! I'll never forget it.

    I have to 2Bs still (upgraded crossovers and tweets) and had some of those Monitor 5s as well. Sold them to a nice guy on Craigslist for a good price, had some older Monitor 5s before that and loved them.

    I do like the non studio 2Bs looks but always loved the black on black of the studio version.
