    They finally went for 302.50 (plus shipping...well over 100.00).

    Yes, most of them anyway. RT35i and CS245i, sold one pair of the RT35i.

    It's an entry level HK, but it's in nice shape. There are a couple of bulbs to replace in the receiver, but no real issues there. I'll probably crack it open this weekend...while Yashu builds his...
