    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.

    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    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.

    So what are you waiting for... Go get them and stop wasting time.
    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.

    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.
