    maybe he'll become a member, and wind up a part of our community. I'm sure we can help him find the audio he is searching for, or he might wind up keeping the speakers.

    I'm dense too....Edit....I see now 99.00.

    A nice guy here advertised his speakers and where he bought them. I went to some back sale flyers and there they were, for just what he was asking. No profit so at least he was fair for asking what he paid even though he only mentioned their MSRP in his ad.

    He must have changed his ad since there is no mention of avoiding new speaker smell now.

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?
