    I'd be on those in a flash!

    I think I'm missing those from my Polk Audio Collection.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Same here! Who wants to grab them and ship my way?
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 8,365
    Yes, the original cost allows for shipping, doesn't it?

    I thought about asking that too, but I'm a little short on spare funds since yesterday. :D

    > 7Bs with Peerless

    Even in moderate condition seems sweet -- especially if the stands are original and good condition. Really sweet for someone who would refinish the cabs anyway.

    My buddy picked these up (I think it was these). He sold the Vandersteen 2Ci's I gave him to get them. He's psyched. Lives in North Beach.

    I will fix your shifted magnets for free. :)

    I was crying for a month or two reading @Clipdat's frequent posts of all those sweet SF deals UNTIL Sat. .

    I now have something else to look at and listen to and to see if my interest in Audio can be peaked to the Goosebump and hair-raising point again. ;)B)

    I still get goosebumps occasionally with certain songs.

    Lately it's been the breakdown at 2:45 of this song:

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    One of the most consistent audio "chillers" for me is
    Akara - The Royal Antechamber at 4:51 but only in FLAC from my FiiO and cranked up. :-)

    I downloaded the FLAC free from SoundCloud, so if anyone wants it just PM me.

    The Mrs and I are taking a road trip to Chicago this weekend to visit our son at Northwestern. And visit my family as well. Hmmm. Got a Yukon, should fit easily. Hmmm. How do I break the news to Momma? :smile:

    Just tell her they will be the last speakers you'll buy for a long time.

    They'll fill the back of the Yukon though! :oB)

    Whay other pair of SUPER sounding speakers can you get for that low of a price. Nothing as far as I'm concerned.

    Those will double your musical enjoyment! Guaranteed!

    But will they be there when you get there?...

    Whatever you do just don't quantify exactly what "A Long Time" is.....lol!

    @verb,
    Seriously though. I concur with @Tony M I have a pair of SRS2's and they are great speakers. You can't get anything close on the market today without paying some big bucks.

    West Allis is just outside Milwaukee so not sure why they showed up in Minneapolis. I'm not sure if they are 2A or B.

    On a global scale, yes. Not exactly my neck of the woods, however... A bit too far to go to check them out.

    Don't think we have any one "decently" close to those on the forum.

    We've got a few that are in the Rockford area, some in the Plainfield area, and a few on the northern IN side but not many that close to WI near Chicago.
