    It might be a real ad put up by some fool who is either too lazy to take his own pics or has a pair of beaters he is misrepresenting. Regardless it's dishonest (and lame).

    There was a guy on eBay a few months ago using pictures of some pristine RT3000p's I had posted on this forum. I called him out and he got all pizzed-off as-if I was out of line for objecting to him using my photos to sell his garbage.

    Well I'm in Ontario and it still doesn't help me. Maybe because I'm Ontario, California and not Ontario, Canada.

    It always amazes me how some people can be so destructive with their awesome Polk speakers. These were beautiful when they were new.

    It's like the SRTs that were for sale last year that looked like they had been sitting out in someone's backyard for the past 20 years. All they needed was a vise bolted on one end and they would have made nice $10,000 work benches.

    Carver Silver Nine T pair for $1200. No affiliation but I do know the guy and he is a vintage audio gear repair and refurbishing genius. When he says "freshly serviced", you can be sure that he went through everything with a fine tooth comb and made sure everything measured within spec.

    80 miles is stopping you, really.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

    Does it have to be within walking distance before it becomes worth the trip or what?

    80 miles is nothing.

    I'd drive a lot farther than that (and have numerous times before) to get audio gear. I would also rather drive a lot farther than have something like these shipped.

    Good God, can you imagine how much it would cost to replace all those tubes when they started dying or just tube rolling? At $100 a pair it looks like $2,000 at least.

    The new circuit is said they should last 50yrs. But I'm with you. To be honest if you can afford 35k amp then tubes are no worry.


    "Silver Seven 700 is the pinnacle of Bob’s amplifier designs, including the DC restorer, which not only allows the use of non-matched output tubes, it prolongs the life of those tubes beyond 50 years!"

    80 miles is stopping you, really.

    Yes. I was a day late and was responding to the post about the Monitor 11T's in Lancaster. I have a motorcycle and an electric car with 100 miles of range, neither of which is a good option to go pick up these speakers. I generally rent a car when I need to go further, which is a a tradeoff I accepted to be able to drive in the express lanes at all times with my vehicles. That raised the cost and hassle.

    And I have no regrets with the vehicle choice. The express lanes keep me sane, which is worth missing out on picking up more speakers.

    Not really. I have scored some junk and some great treasures at good prices. It all depends. Some offer seven day returns. I bought an iPod classic 160 gb for $30 and added a one year warranty for two bucks more. A lot of them do sell crappy junk. Deals can be found there sometimes. Peace. D
