    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    You need to grab them if you can, that price is insane. I wonder what it would take to polkie express them up my way...

    With a busy weekend ahead already, I don't want to take time or space unless they have a likely destination...
    Someone would need to expect that by the time it arrived to them (even by careful Polkie Express) a driver (or four) might be bad, cap broken or compressed, crossover failing, who knows...

    I can get to the bottom of NC in 7 or so hrs but that about my limit for a day trip... If they could get to NC unscathed, I can safely say they'd stay that way.

    But I digress: my point really was that it's an impossible deal (even if there's "no room" for them).

    If you want that day trip, I can check 'em out this weekend and meet you with them in Cherokee, NC some weekend soon. :-)

    Enabler!!!! If this goes down, I wouldn't be able to grab them till September... Working 7 days a week till then, but I'll front you the cash and some extra to hold them/your troubles.

    Then again they could be trashed, but maybe not.

    Thank you for the front and extra offer. No extra needed. I'll let you know if/when I get them.
    Karma already perhaps as I picked up an Adcom 545 MkII in excellent condition for $100 today. :wink:
    Seller of the RTA 12s didn't respond with when we could meet this weekend or today. I'll try again weekend after next when nearby again.

    Oddly enough you and I bought the exact amp for the same price. Although I bought mine yesterday afternoon. :)

    Good price on them.
    Color setting set to monochrome?

    Ok, So I just picked these up off of Offerup. Sad thing is the guy that had them does house clean out and recovery (so either abandoned properties or tenants that move out and leave everything behind to be cleaned up). Apparently he picked them up out of an abandoned house he was paid to clean out!!!!!! Why am I not so lucky!!!!!

    Well he got them for free but he was asking $400 for them. The lowest he would go without telling me to walk was $360.00. So I bought them........

    Cabinets are dry and need some TLC with the Oak veneer in a couple of places peeling back. Cloth covers and side panels look decent and the drivers are in great shape. Didn't have the interconnect cable (so that was my sticking point to get him to go down in price).

    Here are some pics....

    Ok Now just a pair of CRS's then I'm done!!! I swear!! ;)

    Anyone have any SL3000 tweets laying around you want to sell??

    Left tweet out on the 3.1's. Pulled a 2500 out of my parts 8TL temporarily to check if was the tweeter, loose wiring or crossover. The 2500 is working so it is the tweeter. Just need to find one replacement SL3000?? Thanks

    Allow me to be the first to say: you suck ;)

    I can't find a pair of 3.1s 'round here to save my life

    You need to take up a part time hobbie of cleaning out abandoned houses like the guy I bought them from when he found them free!!!
    That's the guy that really sucks!! :p

    Yup, 80 would be more appropriate for the JRs and 120 max for the CRS.

    I'd def. get the RDO194 Monitor 10's! That's a great set for 150.00! Then again, I just went back and read the description. It looks like the seller is hiding the swelling with the sales manual and doesn't provide a picture of the swelling.
