    @FestYboy , I think you were on the hunt for a pair of Monitor 12s.

    https://delaware.craigslist.org/ele/d/wilmington-vintage-polk-monitor-12/6835170433.html

    Probably not a deal, but I have interacted with this seller before & he is usually negotiable.

    I've bought from him as well, NAD C320BEE last time I was down there.

    You're right on both counts, not a deal, but negotiable.

    I have one actually. The cassette deck needs some work on mine but that Panasonic actually sounds darn good for a boombox.

    You are not going to buy the pin/blade cable on eBay for $25. The last one I watched went for $85 and it was after market RCA with outside ground petals ground off.

    SDA1 is far too expensive. If you meant (SDA1a) instead if 2a well that is first gen SDA1. Two things give it away 1. Midwoofer ports. 2. Old RTA interconnect 3prong socket.

    Far too much

    Little pricey on the 12s, but they are a rare bird. If you can get them for 250, I'd call it a good purchase.

    Nice! Would love these but they are too far from me (thankfully). Not the price though. That's about $400 more than I'd pay.
