    How are Adcoms preamps? I stayed away since I heard a couple of their Pre models were a bit harsh when paired up with Adcom amps.

    If it's the same seller I think it is, he's a flipper and minor cosmetic damage = trashed, especially for the asking price. Buyer beware.

    Woah, those look super sweet. And now, thanks to you, the circle of endless audio jealousy continues. ;)

    They're definitely worth 200.00 every day if they're re-foamed and all speakers work.

    There's set of RS4bs 80 miles from me in Raleigh NC. for 150.00. They've been for sale for a while too. I asked for a discount since I would have to travel so far and they said NO. :s I see they're still for sale... :)

    Looks like the bases are missing but no biggie.

    I think their sound is on the warm side and the highs soft but detailed as can be. Easy on the ears I would say. But I heard the RS4bs with an old Fisher integrated. That probably had a lot to do with the warm sound.

    But man do the RS4bs sound really nicely balanced and right. Great sound field!

    They were expensive when new for sure.
    I would say so. I have a pair of RS3a, and they are not warm IMO. Actually, the EMIT planar tweeters can sound bright and harsh if not matched with a good high-current amp. But when they ARE matched well...oh so nice.

    Trey told me the versions with yellow Kevlar tweeters are more desirable, so these may not be the best deal. I know the seller, and with the knowledge that this version doesn't bring that high of price, he might come down. Tempting.

    I've seen these DIY speakers mentioned before here on CP, but not sure if these are anything special.

    [5 speakers for $200]

    That's a great deal for $200, if you have the room. Imagine how much better those would sound versus a soundbar. Even with an entry level ~$300 Onkyo AVR I bet.
