    go get these. I been there, and these will be all the SDA you will ever need.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Blade/Blade Studio SDA 2 (B I think?) $200
    They could have at least wiped them down. They don't look too bad under the schmutz though.

    These were just put up 21 hours ago. No affiliation. Says they are 1.2tl's but those aren't the right tweeters and I can't tell from the picture if it is pin/blade or not. Anyone have an idea maybe the version and age that might have a better eye then me?

    Any suggestions on an offer amount. I might have to look into these. Also if it is between these or a pair of 3.1tl's and you could only afford one pair which would you pursue?? Thanks for any input.
