    Ok... Not trying to be the fuddy duddy here but here's some modded SRS 2's in Portland. Wonder if this would be a worthy upgrade to my 1C's?? Probably should just stick with what I have for now. The boss about blew a gasket when I showed her a pic of the 1.2 tl's i was eyeing...

    NOT may.... DO go audition them. :p

    With those mods and tweeters and binding posts already done,

    You'll be in for a TREAT and a mind-blowing too. 800.00 is high but he did do alot to them and if they're in mint cond. , It might not be such a high price after all.

    I'm guessing these are M5JR series II's... $40.00 seems like a deal.

    They look clean, and are early vintage, but even with that, I'd say they're only worth $150 at the most. Then you get to modding them... $$$

    I wonder why the left channel speaker has the red binding post nut on the right when the illustration shows it should be on the left?
