PSB Stratus speakers

PSB Stratus floor-standing speakers in piano black gloss finish. Local pick-up only in Albany, NY. These are the original Stratus model, which was the precursor to the later Stratus Bronze, Silver, and Gold models. This is a great-sounding speaker, very dynamic with a great sound stage and nice bass punch. It really does everything incredibly well. Speakers are in nice condition with perhaps just a few light surface scratches if looked at closely. The only real (to me minor) noticeable issue is that, at some point, one corner wooden edge of the base of one speaker somehow became separated and the previous owner re-attached it (please see last pic). This did not bother me at all and the base is still solid at that point. I am the second owner. I bought these speakers about 5 years ago but never enjoyed them as much as I should have due to space limitations which prevented me from seting up a planned second system.

Price is $400 local pick-up only in Albany, NY.

Sorry that the pics are not the best, I know, due to lack of light in the room. Please let me know if anyone wishes to see other pics and, if so, I can take some more pics during the day in better light and e-mail them to any interested persons. Thank you.

    I think this a fair price for these speakers...but please let me know (via pm) if my pricing is at all off...or if anyone wants to make a reasonable offer (key word: reasonable). Thank you.

    These are great speakers for the price. I would keep them myself but, unfortunately, do not have the room for them. I'd also prefer not to have to move them to my shop. Currently located in Albany, NY, and, beginning on September 9, they will be in Amsterdam, NY.

    Price reduced to $335.

    I'd rather not have to move these to my shop in Amsterdam, NY, where they will just stand unused among a few other speakers I have stored there, so I decided to lower the price and hopefully give someone local to Albany, NY, a good deal on a great set of speakers. Thanks.

    Price reduced to $325. That is really the best I can do. Local pick-up in Albany, NY.

    I know PSB may not be a household name (and I had not heard of the brand myself until I bought these speakers years ago), but they really do make some great sounding and quality speakers.

    I lowered the price on my local CL a few days ago and forgot to do so on here.

    Local pick up, Albany, NY.

    Thanks.

    Final (final) price reduction: $300. Local pick-up, Albany, NY.

    My wife and I are moving soon and I'd prefer that these find a good home rather than have to move them.

    I think this is a very good deal for these speakers and it is even a bit less than I paid for them myself a few years ago.

    Price reduced to $250. Local pick up only. I've had these on here for a while and would like these to go to a nice new home. I recently moved into a new townhouse and unfortunately do not have room for these. Speakers are now located in Cohoes, NY (near Albany). Thank you.

    Thanks. These are great speakers and I actually paid quite a bit more for them myself. I would love to keep them but, unfortunately, I do not have room for them in the new townhouse my wife and I moved into a few months ago and I'd just like to pass a good deal along to a fellow Polkie. This deal is only open to PF members with 100+ posts. Local pickup only. Thanks.

    Bump...still available. $240, local pickup only. The speakers are also now located in my shop in Amsterdam, NY.

    One more bump before I put these in permanent storage at my shop.

    $240 local pickup only. Cohoes, NY (near Albany, NY).

    These are really great sounding speakers for the price. I paid $300 for these myself approx. 4 years ago and I thought that was a good deal at the time. I would just like to find a good home for these since I only have space for one pair of speakers at my new townhouse (and the SDA 2B TLs are staying).

    Thanks. These are great speakers and, imho, a great deal for $240. I wish I could keep them for a second system but I just don't have the room in my townhouse.

    One more bump as I still having these sitting around and would like to find someone who could use them in a system. Very nice sounding speakers here at a good price. $225. Local pickup only in Cohoes (upstate near Albany) NY. Thanks.
  • pglbookpglbook Posts: 1,786
    I also just listed these (at a higher price) on my local CL. But I am still hoping that a local Polkie grabs them because they are great sounding speakers at a (imho) super price.

    I promise this is my last post about these speakers (famous last words, ha)...but I just wanted to note that the speakers are now stored in my shop in Amsterdam, NY, and I have reduced the price to $200 (which is actually $100 less than I paid for them myself a few years ago and I thought that was a great deal at the time I bought them).

    Also, I did notice a few minor surface scratches to the black gloss finish, mainly on the tops, but that is normal for that type of finish and they are in good shape overall and work perfectly. I do not think you'll find a better sounding pair of speakers for the price.

    $200, cash and carry, local pickup only in Amsterdam, NY (zip code 12010).

    Thanks.
