    Inflation... actually with the popularity of this forum you'd think that vintage Polks should be quite valuable. Some of us are "speaker rich"

    Yup.
    Original owner Polk speakers generally are in great condition and I'd pay a bit more knowing that.

    The original or inherited speakers I've bought have been great buys. B)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I paid significantly more than that for mine as the good stuff isn't normally found cheap. They also ended up being economical in the long run as they've stopped the speaker go round here since 2011.

    Just had to see if my speakers had showed up here yet and here they are. Getting ready to move on down south so I am trying to sell them on CL. Stuff is hard to sell here in Twin Falls county.

    If it falls through you can drop them off to me in Farmington on your way past. I’ll make you a deal... Could even possibly trade a smaller pair of SDA's and some cash. PM me if you want to discuss options. 🤘🏻🤘🏻

    Monitor 4a (Peerless), Monitor 5a (Peerless), Monitor 5b (SL2000), Monitor 7b (Peerless), Modified Monitor 7c’s (194’s), SDA CRS+ (SL2000), RTA12c (194's), SDA SRS 2 (SL2000), SDA SRS 3.1TL (198’s)

    Repair pile:
    (1) lonely RTA 11TL to become a center channel... someday...

    Pairs that have passed through:
    Monitor 4b (Peerless), Monitor 5b (SL1000), Monitor 5b (SL2000) (2x pair), Monitor 7b (Peerless), Monitor 10a (Peerless), Monitor 10b (3x pair), RTA8, RTA8TL, RTA 11T, SDA CRS, SDA 2, SDA 2a, SDA 2b, SDA 1b, SDA 1c, SDA SRS 2, SDA SRS 3.1TL (198’s)

    Let Jay grab these so we can keep them in the family. It's hard to watch a nice pair like these go to anybody else...

    10-4. I do have some friends in Twin that could come pick them up and hold them for me if needed. Let me know if your other deal falls through.

    Glad you sold them, but to rub Jay's nose in it with the price is classless to say the least. You were gone for 6 years before your speakers came up for sale, so don't let that door hit you on the way out this time either...
