    Didn't see the TL in the previous post, was looking at the c.l. add header. Hope you get em' John, a great buy for sure!

    I go get them at ten am tommorow. I will let you guys know all the details, but I did not want to ask too many questions over the phone because I did not want to clue him in that they may be something special. I can't wait to see them and perhaps see what else I might find.

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.

    ^Well driven with a Sony AVR not sure how they sounded good, they also look like 3.1's.... Pics look good though...

    The seller listed as 3.2?? never seen 3.2's but I think these are the same ones that were on the forum in the vintage section the other day, and then the posting was gone?? I talked to the seller of a pair..same name as this seller Matt, said he needed a grand for the pair?? That ain't happening, but 550.00 is a decent price?? Someone here should grab these. I'm staying with my 1B's for a while!

    That's not a horrible price. I just hope you get good personnel on the shipping side. With them being over 100lbs each they may get bounced a bit.

    $300 worth of tweeters in those. Nice!
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Yes those are mine, I am selling due to medical related issues, I am real tired of dealing with Craigslist lowballers and will sell them for $900 to the next "current" Polk audio forum member who comes and picks them up at my house.

    SDA 2B's on Craigslist in Platteville, Wisconsin. $299, looks to be one owner, no affiliation...

    Polk SDA 2.3 TLs currently listed on ebay. No affiliation. Seller is in NJ.

    That's the good news, now for the bad news...

    The Seller has a delusional $1,600 Buy it Now price for these.
    The opening bid (and reserve not met) is set at $500 so I assume Seller's reserve will be way up there if he has set the Buy It Now price so high!

    It appears they are original SRS's since they were purchased in '85.

    Pair of Polk SDA 1C currently for sale on ebay. No affiliation.
    Located in GA.
    Buy It Now price is extremely high ($750) but free shipping included so local may be able to get a deal on these.
