    Picked these up today. They need new grill clothes and a little elbow grease. Ok for $20, at least I think so. zf5iiwa3zeo4.jpg
    442's are cool, I like 409's as well.

    A month ago I missed out on another set that were considerably nicer. Those were also 20 bucks. I had been searching ever since. I found these on Monday, but didn't get a chance to see them until today. Honestly I thought they would've been snatched by now. Thankfully the seller had an undescriptiv ad that was not seen by too many interested shoppers.

    This was the other pair. See how nice these were. yf7fum0qg4k3.jpg

    Awesome find! I'll take them for $60. Profit!! :p

    I love the peerless tweeters. I hope to find some 7's some day.

    Guys, I found some Model SDA 1B local to me. They look in really nice shape and with cable and original boxes. They are asking $475. Is that a good deal? Seems high to me.

    If original $300.00 tops, and only if in excellent condition.

    IMHO.

    Seems high. I purchased SDA-1C speakers in January of this year for $225 from CL. Have you tried Search Tempest to discover other SDA speakers within a given number of miles from your current location?
  • deucekazoodeucekazoo Posts: 146
    I did not know about Tempest. Thanks for that.
    I guess I can always offer him my price and see if he takes it. I think $300 would be fair. They are 5 minutes away from me. That is why I am tempted. Thanks for your opinions.

    I think $475 asking price is high, but I think that $225 for 1Cs is a rare find and not a good representation of value. Show me a few other current 1Cs listed for this price anywhere. They are a $400-$500 speaker in decent shape. 1Bs are generally $100 drop from the Cs and 1As are another $100 down from that.

    This guy has not sold these 1Cs in weeks... so he raises his price? They were $650, now they are $750.
