    Hi @Conradicles, I have a pair that I think I could offer to make room for future L800's. I should be able to get to them in the next few days to take pics and provide details if you'd like.

    Sorry, it looks like it'll be Friday afternoon before I can get there.

    No worries. Are the modified or stock?
  • vcwatkinsvcwatkins Posts: 1,921
    So sorry it's taken me soooo looong to get back here. Life got a little hectic.

    These are modded. I bought them unmodded and in rough cosmetic condition in '16 from a guy in Charleston. The plan was to update them and keep either the 1.2's or the 2.3tl's and give the spares to my eldest son. The 1.2's look good and sound slightly better in our (voluminous, bouncy, and untreated) den - bigger but slightly looser bass, Dueland resistors.

    My son lost interest in audio gear, so I ended up taking the 2.3tl's to the beach house where they're shoehorned in a small bedroom-turned-listening room where they are seen/used only by me. Not ideal, still ugly ducklings, but very enjoyable.

    Mods included tweeters, boards, rings, vr3 plates & cable, Sonicap/Mills, minor tweaks. Original inductors and wiring. Some detail:

    443nz3b42klc.jpg

    Aesthetically challenged: divots and scratches in top (one looks like it was drilled), chipped edge band, a stain (I am responsible for this-i left a remote on top and a battery leaked, sigh); fabric is discolored, a couple visible holes on side, and what looks like cat picks on at least one side. All in all, rough n ready, hehe.

    You can see pics here:

    $1500 + tweeters in them, not that that has too much to do with market value. I was thinking $1200ish, but let me know if this is out of line- I have not kept up with the sda market.

    I’ll be in Chapel Hill Saturday November 2 and could hand off there if helpful. As always, I’m happy to reverse the transaction if not happy.

    I'm assuming $1200ish was too high and/or poor aesthetics were a deal-breaker, and you are way too kind to say "Are you outta your freakin mind, you old coot?!", hehe. So I'll just plan to make caps and re-cover to keep for the upcoming (converted garage) man-cave. Maybe do inductors while I've got them opened up.

    I'll keep my eyes peeled for you down here. Best of luck!

    Would have to get rid of 1.2's or 2.3tl's first due to limited space.

    Thanks @vcwatkins ! I bet these sound fantastic with all of the upgrades. I may hold out to find a less expensive mint stock pair.
  • drumminmandrumminman Posts: 3,372
    Mine are not for sale but I can tell you that whatever you pay for stock 2.3tl’s, you can add $100 for Gimpod’s boards, $250 for quality caps (eg sonicaps), $50-100 for small inductors, $250-$300 for 10awg Solen perfect lay SDA inductors, $300 for RD-0198 tweeters, and this doesn’t include a Dreadnaught.
    If someone has done the mods with decent components it adds up.
    "Science is suppose to explain observations not dismiss them as impossible" - Norm on AA; 2.3TL's w/sonicaps/mills/jantzen inductors, Gimpod's boards, Lg Solen SDA inductors, RD-0198's, MW's dynamatted, Armaflex speaker gaskets, H-nuts, brass spikes, Cardas CCGR BP's, upgraded IC Cable, Black Hole Damping Sheet strips, interior of cabinets sealed with Loctite Power Grab, AI-1 interface with 1000VA A-L transformer

    I totally agree, but these would be used in my H/T Man Cave and will not require all of the mods. Just looking for fine looking vintage huge SDA's LOL.
