    And he'd probably let you have it since you're so charming. You'd have enough money left over to send it off to Big Sky Audio for upgrades.

    What the hell? Only $100 for a vintage Marantz, bookshelf speakers, and cable to hook them up? https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ele/d/marantz-1060b-int-amp-pioneer/6574683220.html

    I don't charm well. People look at me FUNNY when I ask for discounts in person.

    SERIOUSLY! :#

    I guess they look at me and think, "yea, he's got money". And I usually don't! :/

    I've heard of that repair place, they seem to have quite a following. Has anyone here have personal experience with them? Are their prices reasonable or do you have to give them a blank check?

    $60 for that center is a no brainer. It is truly a beast of a center. I ran one in my HT and it was one of the best centers I've ever had.

    The prices here would get someone a VERY nice surround setup.

    I don't have first hand experience with them, but others on the forum do.

    They have some prices listed on their website, but it adds up quickly when you factor in that you'll be paying to ship the amp there and back.

    I do and have actually visited his shop...my comments from a while back:

    Still using both Parasounds but have moved up to a PS Audio DirectStream DAC and MIT S1 interconnects/cables since my previous post. The PSA DSD and 1500A are a great combo. Listening as I type and they make sweet music.

    I would!

    I'd stay around SF for a month ( I'd rent a storage unit and live in it! till it was full)and clean up on all those deals happening over there. ;)

    After the unit was full, I'd call the movers in to transfer to the cargo plane. :D

    Looks like Lsi9, LsiFX and an LsiC...Not sure about the sub but who cares, I'd just resell that if I got the package anyway. I actually live in SC so Hartford is too far away for me :)

    I talked via text to the seller this afternoon. He’s supposed to be holding them for me. I have a buddy up that way going to pick them up this week or next. Hopefully he doesn’t sell them from under us... he seems like a good guy. Yes, they are 9s, FXs, a C, and a PSW404. My buddy might keep the ones I don’t need.
  • dromundsdromunds Posts: 8,704
    LSi/FX are worth more themselves than the whole package price. 9’s themselves are worth that much. Steal of the draft

    Wait so if I read your post correctly FXs are worth more than 9s? But I thought the 9s were better.
