    Just did a 6 hour round trip to pick up my SDA 2A's in OKC for $200. Haven't had much time with them but believe they are original non-studio version with the original interconnect cable. They sound nice, but now I need more power....

    I see a lot of them for sale back east and up north. And a few in Phoenix and Denver. There are a couple for sale here in DFW, both SDA 1Cs but the want $600 or more for them. Just seems a bit high.

    $1400 seems a bit high to me for non TLs. But it depends on the location I suppose. I had a hard time selling mine for $900. Most people just don't have the space for them, pushing the resale value down.

    I'm not going to comment on the leopard print grill cloth.

    How did the TLs compare to your SRS 2s ?

    I agree with it seeming a little high but it's a starting point IMHO. I would consider them and make him an offer but I don't have the room.

    There was a pair in Denver listed for $1700 and after dropping few hundred each week, they sold for $700 so keep watching. ;)

    I didn't have the TLs, they were original SRS. They were awesome, but too big for my space. They would literally pressurize the room. Much happier with the SRS 2.
  • Rex81Rex81 Posts: 193
    Even the SRS 2 are probably a little big for my space, but I loved the upgrade in impact and presence over my 2Bs, so I feel like I found the sweet spot in the lineup, for me at least.

    Although if a set of 3.1s came along, I'd be forced to buy them. That's probably the ideal size for my space.

    And these SDA 2As in Memphis for only $125 that come with a complete stereo system. Little rough on the outside but says they sound OK.

    Way over priced imo for original 2's. That model tends to not receive a very good following.


    The 2A's in Memphis is a good deal at $125. Even though someone painted them black. lol

    The dust caps are pushed in on one set. I stumbled across the thread below about what appear to be the same speakers.

    Nice note PK... didn't see that. Thanks for the update.
    These just posted in up by St. Paul. $800 for 1.2s...no real pictures of the speakers.
    Might be worth looking into for someone in that area.

    Kind of weird no pictures. Just the print ad from decades ago.

    I would love to buy them, but my wife would file for divorce. :o

    Lives less than five miles away. Next suburb over. Asked him for address to come on over and he says sorry sold? I text him to send me photo of serial number or right it down for me. Just want to know if they were TL's? Peace. Hope a Polky snagged them up?
