    I had a pr. of SDA-CRS's that had that anomaly of different nut possitions but I didn't know it for a while. Some guys here on the Forum and I tried to figure out why there was something seriously wrong with the sound. We eventually got around to those nuts. Putting the positive wire where it belonged on the one speaker CURED the weird sound coming from them. Somebody had switched one speakers nuts.
    After correcting them, I was and still am blown away by those bookshelf speakers!
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Polk LS 90’s for 60 bucks in Los Angeles...

    Can you add a link to the ad, or are you the seller? 60 clams is thievery.

    SDA-CRS (+?, they are pin/blade) for sale in Saint Louis, Missouri for $200 OBO (w/o IC). Seems like a smokin' deal to me. No affiliation.

    Yes you can see the p/b socket

    I'd pay it

    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?

    Simple someone switched it

    Not sure why these are still for sale. Look to have updated RDO's. Are the doughnuts that inferior? If I didn't just get 1C's and spent the time and money upgrading I'd jump on these.
