    Reminds me... back in the day, people would steal Hyundai cars to steal the radio. You could buy the cars at auction for a hundie. The cars were called Hundie for a long time...

    We had a pair of RTA-12's here in Wilm. NC. a few years back on Craigs list. The owner had a bunch of speakers that he wanted to clear out fast. He wanted 200.00 for the RTA-12's. :)

    And I had no spare change and didn't want to touch my 401K yet. It was a tough week for me. :'(

    I didn't even go the 3 miles to see what else he had...that hurt to not have some spare $.

    Piano gloss white it’s just a hint of pearl and brushed aluminum on the bottom lip with matching logo and stands would look amazing.

    Peel that crappy sticky vinyl off, sand them good and veneer them with awesome cherry or walnut. Heck, even Oak is fine with me.

    Those Monitor 7's need rescuing too. ;)

    Isn't this unobtanium, or pretty close to it? It's $100 and has been around a month... I'd be wary of that, just because it seems like someone would have jumped on it in that time.

    if you mean they don't make them anymore ...yes. They are pretty good sized center channel and darn good imho. 100.00 might be a little high as the shipping will be costly. I'd give them 75.00 just for the parts.

    Polk Monitor 9's.

    They're kind of rare too. 150 is the most I'd pay for them. I paid 80 or 90 I think, a long time ago.

    Some like them and some don't.

    I like mine! they have peerless tweeters. :pB)

    They're right in the middle of this picture.
