    Hey @nikonik where's your holiday spirit? If they show up in your backyard the polite thing to do would be to at least invite them in.

    Your right, I called and thought do I really need a 3rd set? So I passed but about a week later he said he had a buyer from Idaho and I don't know if it fell through or not. The speakers are 10-15 min away from me. On a positive note, I did trade a set of M10 and LF14 for a set of SDA 1C this past weekend. It was a listing farther north but we met half way and that was even better! I do admit it is very hard to pass up something so close as my other 2 had to be shipped from the east.

    I would love to have a pair of those 12's. Just because I am becoming a hoarder of all things Polk.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk Signature S60's with ZU Audio IBIS jumpers; Cables: Wireworld Eclipse IC; Audioquest Big Sur IC; ZU Audio Mission speaker cables; PS Audio AC-3 power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; SDA2BTL's, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    The RTA-12B and C's are the best non SDA vintage Polk speakers I have heard, in some aspects they even beat out SDA's (center imaging for instance). I paid $225 for mine, ended up giving them to a friend for free. I tried selling them for something around $200 with two extra Peerless tweeters and an extra MW6600X and I still couldn't get rid of them. I don't know why.

    Those belong to member VR3.

Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Stradivari v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X1 preamplifier Signed by Poppa himself, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, 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.

  • Sorry, I didn't see that. In that case , if someone wanted the "ultimate" Polk speakers, it would probably be worth it.

    No...it means since he's a newly wed, he priced them so they hopefully don't sell ;)

  • Is that a new high asking price for a set of 1.2tl's?
    $3665.00 ?
    I remember good sets going for 2K just a year or two ago.

    Those belong to VR3, you gotta know they were modded very well.

    He doesn't mention any in depth modifications. That isn't like him, so it makes me wonder if any mods were done to the crossovers. That would be a huge selling point not worth leaving out.
