    Oh yeah, they're asking 75 dollars for them. Pin/blade cable is also included, no affiliation.

    The ad is down so I believe that these have been sold.

    Congrats Drew! :wink:

    Looks like those 3.1s are for sale in Lansing, not Chicago. He claims that audiogon blue book has them at $2k? Seems a bit steep to me. Makes his $800 price tag look like a deal then.

    Verb has already sent an offer....
    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, Krell Evolution 505 SACD Player, Pioneer Elite SC-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB800 "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.

    Ad mentions some sort of cracking on the rubber surround. How difficult might these be to fix, if possible? Would they be worth fixing?

    What do the gurus think?

    Fix from the back side, but they're asking pristine price for something that is less than perfect. Only real thing going for them is the peerless...
