Speakers! Speakers! Speakers!!!

So now that I have gotten what I consider to be my end-game speakers, it is time to thin the herd a bit. Just no need for more speakers than rooms in the house.

I will be posting up pictures soon.
I also will only ship if the buyer pays actual shipping costs since I don't have any of the original boxes.
Payment via Paypal F&F is preferred but we can make other arrangements if needed.
I am willing to drive up to 3 hours from Des Moines, IA to meet up for a sale. But beyond that is up to you to meet me.

1. Silverline Audio Sonatina MKI Condition: 6/10 $750
I thought these were going to be my endgame speakers. They are designed to work with SET power but I have yet to find an amp that they didn't play nicely with.
I upgraded the crossovers to include ClarityCap and SonicCap capacitors and Jantzen and AlphaCore copper foil/wax inductors. Internal wiring is all 12/2 Audioquest FLX.
They also have Soundocity outriggers with rubber feet. But you can add really any feet or spikes you want to.
They do have wear and tear from being moved multiple time. Some dings here and there but nothing structurally or acoustically wrong with them. They are Maple burl veneered with black grilles.

2. Polk Audio LSiM705 Cherry Condition: 9.5/10 $800
Not going to lie, I bought these during the Audorama sales. They have been unboxed, set up for a few days and listened to and then pushed to the back of my office where they have sat under the white cloth socks ever since. I really really like them. Arguably my favorite Polk speakers I have owned and I have thought long and hard about keeping them for my bar surround system. But my bar needs speakers that can be wall mounted up and out of the way. Since the LSi7s and LSiC I have fit the bill there, I am keeping those.
These are in immaculate shape and aren't even broken in yet.

3. Usher V-601s Condition: 6/10 $225
These are the redish finished ones that have been making their rounds around Club Polk for some time. I traded Dan ( @EndersShadow ) for them and planned on keeping them for my bedroom setup. But they have been listened to exactly twice in the over a year and a half that they have been in the bedroom. They no longer have the grilles as they were starting to fall apart. They still perform great and other than some dings and scratches are structurally sound.

    Right now both the 705s and the Ushers are spoken for.

    Those Silverlines are beautiful...how big a room did you have them in? I have a medium (at best) room that doubles as a home office....getting them to Georgia would be an adventure for sure🙂

    Actually, it was last year Ron. But yeah, they work well in my office at 12x16.

    The only caveat is they are picky about distance from the wall behind them since they are rear ported. I had them about 8ft apart, 9 ft from the listening position and roughly 22 inches from the wall behind them.

    My room is also doubles as my home office...

    As for getting them to Georgia, I am positive we can figure something out. I don't mind driving at all really.

    So have a stupid question-- if you have two sets of speakers, how do you switch them? Manually connect/disconnect speaker cables?
