    Studio? They don't look like studio to me...they look like wood 1C's that were stained/painted in black...

    Well by golly... appears you are correct. At least about the non-studio part.

    Now as to why they are black, could be a rare bird...

    "All components are in grade A condition, some of the edges of the the cabinets are dented a little (see pics) but have been re-stained so small dings don't show up."

    Yep... they're stained.

    I did not realize that 1c's had the wood sides except for the studio version, these look like my 1c's (except for the side panels) :confused:

    Edit: Mine have the oak end caps and the cloth sides, guess the side panels could have been replaced? Odd.

    Those 2.3 appear to be in GREAT shape... a bit expensive though...even for TL's, which they are not. :rolleyes:

    Hey I posted this in the vintage speaker section yesterday. They are a little rough, but I think they would clean up nice. They aren't getting much attention due to the poor title and no description.

    A no brainer for someone local, not sure they could be cleaned up to make my house, but the price alone would be worth the extra drivers...

    Is it me or did this guy double the price in one bid from 600.00 to 1200.00, see that's the sh** that keeps me away from e-bay. :rolleyes:

    $1200 was his reserve and the bidder entered a price that was equal or greater. No fooling around. I don't understand why you see a problem with this. Would you rather see 20 incremental bids with cheap **** bidders trying to figure his reserve? Its no secret how much these are worth. $1200 is a pretty fair reserve considering what recent sales have been. Now its up to other potential buyers/bidders to decide if they want to pay more.

    Very rare pair of 2.1tl's

    I think the guy's situation is pretty funny. Those SDAs look like bookshelf speakers in a dollhouse. What did he think they were going to look like in that very small room??

    Wonder what Wifey said when she saw them. Probably a lot of 4 letter words ending with them or me. 15 hours of ownership, and they are on ebay.

    Too funny, no one could have made that up after you see the picture.

    Still laughing.

    The seller corrected the mistake before the first bid. It now says 1.2TL.

    No affiliation....

    Are these the last pair on earth :eek: , the seller must think so at this price.

    2.3TL

    BIN Price of 2500.00 not met.....

    They are definitely underrated and a little on the undiscovered side too but that is a very ambitious price. If the original SRS, 1.2, and 1.2tl ever become scarce, the price of the 2.3 and 2.3tl will probably double from today's prices.

    I hope a member gets these. The $1200 bid must have been retracted but now you know the seller's reserve is $1200 or less which is a steal if they don't have any major problems.

    I think he just took them off and sold them to the high bidder outside Ebay to avoid fees. Either that, or he convinced his wife to let him keep them :D
