CRS+ blade/blade - VG to excellent - upgraded tweeters - $350 in NYC

Hello hello, and thank you for your consideration. Up for sale today we have a gorgeous looking and pleasant sounding pair of CRS+.

They present well with no blemishes on the wood, and just one small white schmutz on one of the grills. Minor minor corner issues...nothing visible from listening position. I'm happy to take more pictures upon request.

Upgraded tweeters! I don't think these have ever been opened. I am the 2nd owner (if the first was honest with me!)

NYC cash and carry (no shipping offered yet) - down by the Holland Tunnel in lower Manhattan.

Available for demo, currently hooked up to a Sonos connect > Nak CA5 > Nak PA5 > Polks.

Please let me know if I can amend this post in any way to conform with rules or norms, or if you need any other information from me.

GLWTP!

    I think we need only one for sale thread per sale.
    They do appear to be in very nice condition though, GLWTS!

    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'.

    Have Ken Swagger remove it or report it as a mistake and ask that it be removed.

    So I would assume since these are blade/blade these are the 86/87 model CRS+ with the two piece crossovers, and should be noted these can’t be modified to the 4.1TL mod and use the RDO-198’s...

    It should also be noted that they sound amazing just the way they are.

    Agreed, I wasn't dissing them.. I have/had the same ones but modified mine to a single board using gimpod's boards, two drivers, and two 198 tweets, so it can be done if one has the the two drivers needed to make it happen..

    Well, I meant it as a friendly jab and a compliment to Polk. It’s good info. for prospective buyers as I want the purchaser to be happy long term.

    UPDATE: the stands are not for sale. The stands are for my other pair perfectly modded by Dave. Man, he does nice work.

    Thank you mods and apologies for the initial lack of clarity.
  • I have never seen CRS+, only the regular old CRS. How can you identity one from the other?

    Regardless your speakers sure look purdy.

    CRS has two tweeters one being in the SDA circuit.
    CRS+ one tweeter
  • Ok that's good to know. Thank you for the clarification.

    Price drop $255 - this is a steal for CRS+ in this condition with the updgraded tweeters!!!

    those are nice!
    My wife asked me a while back how far I'd drive for speakers...

    Always wanted to try a set of these. GLWTS, at $255 you shouldn’t need it!
