    @kmeek what's in the Monoprice box?

    What's not in the Monoprice box is the better question....

    And there are multiple boxes!!! (you just see one)

    I don't know about you guys but their next day shipping service is almost as rediculous as Amazons. Instant gratification baby!!!! :D

    I just traded my 2.3TL's for some Monoprice SDA's because they have a snazzy wireless interconnect cable and an Alexa-powered adjustable crossover. B)

    HAHAHAHA My ex-wife had about as much interest in audio as I do in knitting. My girlfriend lives about 3000 miles away and has a stereo worth more than most people's houses, yet she is almost never home to enjoy it. She likes it because it was "expensive and pretty". HAHAHA

    My new Monoprice SDA's are about the size of a box of POP-Tarts. The sound field is 40 feet wide, 10 feet high, and deeper than Junior Sample's overall pockets. :o

    @Viking64, I don't know about you but I am sure a lot of us can attribute getting some of our smoking deals on speakers where the initial conversation with the seller starts with something like this.....

    "I love these speakers but my (insert significant other here) says they are (Insert Adjective here: too big, too tall, too loud, too ugly....) and need to get rid of them".

    I know as a single guy I would personally like to thank all of those significant others that convinced their significant other to sell the speakers we now lovingly have in our collections..... B)

    LOL

    I've never bought or sold any audio gear privately, except for a few items from members here. The whole time I was married, my "big boys" sat in storage. Those speakers lasted me 9 times as long as my marriage did, and I just got finished doing a full mod with Vr3 crossovers. So thankfully I didn't sell them to make 3 years of misery slightly less....miserable. :p

    But his current girlfriend has a $10k rack. So I'd say he upgraded.
