    Those are SRS-2's... heck of a lot of speaker for the coin.
    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-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Sorry meant SRS 2's and not SDA's.....

    One might not get the impression that I own a pair..... But I do. :D

    Can't see the terminal plate on the back to see if they are blade/blade or newer pin/blade interconnect plugs.

    Just making a statement based on the evidence given, Ivan. Never said the sticker is correct.

    I believe the CS-350 is for the LS series, but I’m not sure. I don’t think there was a center for the original Monitors. Price wise, I have no idea.

    You are correct however many here have used the CS350LS with SDAs and monitors with minimal issues. I used to have a CS250 that I used with some RTA11TLs and it blended just fine to me.

    At 30 dollars they were a giveaway. At 200 they're a fair deal.

    However knowing what he paid I'd lowball his asking price with a hundred dollar offer.

    @audioluvr - it’s a looong drive. But I may be making a trek to Boise this fall. I will inquire of the seller and see what kind of deal I can swing. Standby.
