    LOL, I don't see anything in the description about him offering to let you hear them before buying! The comments about the wife are funny though:

    _______________________________________Calling All Polk Audio Fans!!!_________________________________________
    Wife says quit messing around with what you think these are worth, and move these beast's!

    The time has come for me to part with my classic Polk Audio SDA Reference Signature Series System 2's, complete with the interconnect cable. If you are looking at this ad then you know what these are so, I will spare the spec details.

    They have been used but, not abused. The speakers have been moved around over the years, so the wood areas have typical nicks, scratches, scuffs, etc. (see pictures).

    You can tell by the the photos that they are in excellent condition for their age, and the speaker surrounds appear to still be in excellent condition.

    If you are looking for some classic solid performing Polk Audio high-end speakers, then these are for you. These speakers are original and unmolested (no past repairs of any kind).

    Although it has been awhile since I used them on a regular basis, they are working as well as they ever have however, because they are classic electronics they are being sold as is.

    Price is fair and firm.
    First $525.00 gets them.
    Serious inquiries only please.
    Thanks for looking.

    You can tell he doesn't listen to his wife too well, does he?

    They should be 300.00 to move them fast!

    I know. I read and saw where it doesn't look like he's set up to play them. He wants us to buy them "AS IS" also. :#

    They sound better than they look! ;)

    You like bass, right? These would be for you. For starters anyway. ;)

    They're the speakers that took me seriously back to the stereo nirvana listening rabbit hole!

    It's amazing that wire even works.

    The wood caps do look great for a change. :)

    Nice speakers for maybe a good price but come on...take the grills off, people!

    Let us see what the cones and domes look like. ;)

    They are definitely 1C's, I surely don't need them, but if I can pick them up worth the money...I might ;)

    I've had a couple of modded pair in the past, and sold them to fund something else. The 1C's are very good speakers, but I always thought that with the close proximity of all the Mid-Drivers, that they sounded a little "congested" in the Mid Range.

    But, they don't come up for sale very often in my part of the Country, and they do have the Original Boxes. I would really like to have a nice pair of 2B's ;)

    I had bunches of SDA's crammed into a top 5 worst room contender in forum history they still sounded great....in the kitchen or on the porch. Hell, I'm still trying to find the sweet spot thanks to placement and imperfect USED DRIVERS.

    You sound like a true polk diehard.

    ^^What did you measure to come up with Smallies?
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    There are three things that give a man a false sense of courage, a keyboard, alcohol and a firearm.

    Monitor 10's for $125. Look to be in decent shape (couple of grill pegs missing) and possibly include the elusive stands...

    I don't see the stands mentioned. Nice condition though.

    They're elusive, LOL.

    Something is holding them at that angle... or they're just levitating like David Blaine!
