    Sucker! :D Seriously what are you going to run these with? I was going to pick up a set of these but was told they have weird load demands and most amps struggle running them. Supposedly Acoustat amps are the best match but based on info I got from Rolland at Hi-Tech audio any amp stable at 1 ohm or less will do. Also these are very sweet spot specific but if you can get them set up right they are glorious!
    One foot on audio nirvana and the other in the poor house.

    It's a love/hate relationship with these types. The imaging should blow you away, the lower bass might be a tad on the light side compared to what your used to.

    Maybe a 100 of them to choose from. One of them should fit. Verb has been preparing for this situation.

    Shipping to me would be $$$$$ and a deal breaker.

    Somebody closer, say within 200 miles should consider them though. I've read great reviews AND a local guy who bought some cubes plus a Pawn shop guy who had some for sale in the shop for $$$ said they were amazing little ORBs.

    I bet that bidding goes well over where it is now at $350.00.

    There is a audio reviewer on youtube that always has a pair of them in the background in his system.
  • oldrockeroldrocker Posts: 2,326
    Shipping is 75 bucks for the Gallos.
    I believe that's 48 states only.

    Says they are like new but pics show no covers.

    by the previous post to yours I believe you might be right

    Wow, I knew they would go up but did not imagine more that 2200 or so.
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 9,026
    WOW.
    They are pieces of ART too. Maybe somebody LOVES the look of them and also has heard them.

    Heck, it might be the husband trying to buy them back. :D

    I'd probably buy both and hope for a little $ break.

    2 nice sets right there! That dome midrange on those Infinity's sounds sweet!

    Those Emit tweets are nice as well IMO :#
