    They look new. From my house, it would be a three hour drive from Marietta Georgia. I have not been on that long of a buying trip. Yet.

    SDA's of this condition don't come up for sale very often, especially with the mods these have. A six hour road trip is really nothing considering the price of gas, I'd say "go for it"

  • not far from me either. I would love to have them, but have some SRS-SDA 2.3TL's and a pair of SDA-CRS's already. Still though, if I had the extra cash, they would have a new home.

    I remember that, I think you have the record for the "Longest SDA Run" should be some kinda prize for that, no? ;)

    Jimmy it looks like the seller has more gear lying around. After you check out those crs's quiz him on his other gear. He might have a little hoarder in him that's finally ready to sell his stash.

    Are these the more sought after CRS plus models? I was hoping he had the original stands to sweeten the pot! He does not. Peace. D

    Those SDA's have been for sale for some time now. One of the pictures shows some sort of water damage to the box.

    Asking about $1,000 more than they're worth, if you ask me.

    So I took the dive into SDA and bought these. The speakers these were sitting on were some Klipsch speakers. He also had some 2.1 SDA that he was keeping, not parting with them. He also had some 10A that he was going to sell. A very good day, trying to get use to the CRS after listening to the 10's for long time.

    Somewhat on the high side [and not in the good way!] Besides you got to wonder about someone that would spend 1300 use it for 3 months then stick it in the closet for 25 years?

    bought them, wife complained, put them in the closet, ?Keller Texas 43,000 pop.? shoved up against a wall, does not know how to use them decide to sell them.

    There is another posting here in the musical instruments section.
    http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/msg/5422476796.html

    He has three sets; 1 SDA 2s and one SDA 1C... Does not know how to use them and does not have the crossover cables for them. The one set of SDA2's is the nicest cosmetically. They all sound decent. They belonged to his brother who moved and wants to sell them. Still had them as of Sunday 2/7.

    I agree the 2Bs are the in the best shape, but still think he's asking too much for them. Good pick up on the CRs's... I did not look at those while I was there. Kinda have my heart set on a 1C pair.

    Depends on what binding posts, caps, and resistors he used. Might actually not be too nutty, especially if that's Canadian dollars.

    It would cost you more than $850 CDN to buy a pair of 2A's and fully upgrade them like that unless you do the soldering yourself.
