    But he's willing to trade if you have a "DVD/Bluray collection of several thousand good titles"

    No, "Debbie Does Dallas" is not a "good title".

    Those might be the kind he's referring to. ;)

    "Price is fair and firm." - What do you think guys? $525 is fair?

    If you've ever heard the SRS2's, it's hard NOT to want your own pair IF you have the room for them to breathe ( But I have seen a pair in a bedroom and they sounded pretty impressive there too. ) and a strong back to handle them. And a strong groin too I might add. :#

    If you have to bring them upstairs, may God help you. o:)

    @kmeek What did you decide on these? I see they are still available. I'm considering starting to negotiate with the owner but only if your not interested in them. Thanks

    @ThomasD Sorry about that I was off grid for a couple of days...... Go for it and hope you get them.
  • kmeekkmeek Posts: 225
    OK so I am supposed to go look at a pair of 1.2 TL's that I might have a chance to buy.
    My first time looking at a pair of the big boys....
    Is there anything I should look out for when I am inspecting and listening to them??

    Thanks, Any help would be appreciated......

    I would die a happy camper if I can rope these (just hopefully not a day after I get them) I'm just saying...... lol!

    I think the main thing on the big ones is the passive. I would inspect them good because they are almost unobtainable. The rest is just like any other speaker,push test,check for seized drivers.

    False advertising! Good catch @erniejade ! Still a deal, IMO.

    Not a bad deal but there is a much cleaner pair on CL in that same area for a couple more bucks. They were posted a couple pages back in this thread i believe.
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 3,698
    ^ true, maybe I should get both? :* :#

    Well I got them. Now I didn't notice this until I got them home and have them right next to each other. They don't appear to be a matched set. I have the left and right speaker and they both appear to be TL's. The left speaker top and bottom caps are thicker than the right one and has more of a red hue to the oak where the right is more golden....

    Should I be concerned?

    They sound great and I did not notice the differences when they were in normal listening positionrvnd99mfb8kv.jpg

    Judging by the serial numbers, you have one TL and one non-TL, which may explain the height difference. Is the shorter one missing feet?

    It's also odd only one says "TL" with 5 us patents and not the other with only 2???
