    It's really a high price. Even if they're mint. They don't have the new tweeters yet. That would take the price above 1,100.00. :s

    SRS2's are NICE but time is on your side isn't it. There's bound to be a cheaper pair that will pop up in your future for 500 or so in great cond..

    I've owned them both but not a fully moded 1C's, nor moded SRS2's. I think I had a bass lacking amp hooked up to the 1C's and let them go. I thought the SRS2's had twice the bass but I think I'm wrong now.

    One of my life regrets is letting those 1C's go. I regreted letting my first pair of SRS2's go and bought the first pair that came up for sale near me a year later. I had put RDO-194's in my first pair of SRS2's and grew to like the softer sound. I think the new tweeters sounded better and better after time though!

    But still, that price in the ad...Ouch.

    @la2vegas and @Jaybeez , I picked up the SDA-SRS-2s today.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Polk-Audio-SDA-SRS-2-Signature-Reference-Speakers-MINT-CONDITION/253516369761?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    I contacted the seller after he relisted them. Said that the high bidder flaked. I asked if he was interested in selling them now, he said yes. He wanted $700. I negotiated him down to $500.

    I drove up from Mission Viejo to Northridge (82 miles) this morning and arrived at noon to pick them up. He greeted me in his garage, where sat his brand new Corvette Grand Sport. Nice car!

    He was the original owner of the SDA-SRS-2s, having purchased them new from Shelley's Stereo in LA in 1987. They were only moved once (locally) in 31 years. And when he listed them as MINT, he meant it! They are pristine. The walnut is BEAUTIFUL throughout. He had the IC, but wasn't able to find the owners manuals.

    He helped me load them into my SDA-SRS-Hauler (my '06 Prius ;) ) and I was headed back down the 405 South in less than 30 minutes after arriving.

    My son helped me unload them and we set them up in the living room. I have to say that I was VERY surprised with the bass response. For only 2 stereo mid-drivers and a PR, they produce INCREDIBLE bass.

    I am very pleased with this addition to the stable. The only SDA model I am missing now is the SDA-SRS-3.1TL.

    The hunt continues!

    It's all about that bass... :p

    CONGRATS!!!! Great purchase!

    I agree, what a design. Anybody who has heard mine can't believe it. Big eyes and jaw-dropping responses are the normal reactions to people hearing the sound from these guys.

    I heard experienced forum members say these SRS2's are very special speakers for years. I loved my Monitor 10's but man, I didn't know what I was missing until I heard the SRS2's in my cottage. Mine is the 4-ohm version.

    I love your collection of Polks. I have a lot of the lower priced versions of Polks.

    I'd like to hear your comparisons of those SRS2's to the bigger models you own.

    Will I hear a better / bigger sound-field by buying a bigger set of the Signature models or is it like the veterans say, it depends on the size of the room after the SRS2's size goes?

    @Tony M , and @la2vegas, thanks! I am very surprised with their performance.

    These are early serial numbers (SDA-SRS-2 685, and SDA-SRS-2 691), with Blade/Blade IC, so I am assuming 3rd gen SDA, and hence the 4 ohm versions. I need to pull the drivers to be certain.

    It would take an afternoon to get to the backs of mine right now. I'll get them to you as soon as I can. ;) The left speaker would be even harder to get to the back. This is the right one. A little has changed by me adding some more things in front the past year.

    It's only hording if there's no longer walkways, and you have piles of stuff that could topple over and kill you at any moment.

    Tony is still at the respectable "collector" level. :)

    That table is an antique chess table.
    I'm pretty sure mine doesn't have drawers like this one. But the top looks just like it.

    I still have a walkway for the most part. But I did trip carrying a speaker I sold through there. The other guy made it through just fine before me. I just BARELY caught the edge of something and down I went. The speaker in my arms broke my fall...LOL and it survived too. :s

    I have thought about my last day on Earth would be in there under a monitor 10 that fell off of a shelf. Many times that has crossed my mind. Or a Kenwood KL-888D (?) falling. I had 4 of them up at the 8' height too. So there was 8 chances of serious injury in there at one time.

    "Help...A speaker has fallen from a shelf and hit my head and I can't get up." scenario. :s
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I still don't think he's at that "level" yet. On one of the episodes I watched, the lady had bags of vacuum dust/debris that she had saved from the "good times" in her life.

    That is some loony tunes ****. Tony you better not be saving your vacuum bags!
