    Default Lsi9's with stands is this a good deal?

    http://quadcities.craigslist.org/eld/3892748481.html

    Ok I would love to heave a pair of these to go along with my other Polks, I wonder how easy these would be to rotate into the mix without the wife getting upset. Is the asking price a good deal? I just might check them out tomorrow.

    Good deal, but the stands look a little short for proper placement of LSi9s. Mine are on 30 inch stands. Also, the LSi9s are heavy, so make sure those stands will support their 35lb each weight.

    Thanks!

    I wonder what the "minor flaw" is...water damage? cabinet separation?

    Did you really need to ask? Easy flip if they're not your thing.

    Surely he is pricing those per speaker. If not, I do need to start checking craigslist on a daily basis.

    That's just it I'am not sure if they would be my thing or not, I will listen to them tomorrow hopefully, these being 4 ohms and both my adcoms being used for my SDA's means I might need another amp or just swap em out from time to time. I'am curious to how these would sound in a 2 channel setup not interested in using these in a HT setup.

    They sound pretty damn good good on an EL-34 based PP integrated, which would give you a very nice music setup for well under $1k. If he is wanting that per speaker, you should be able to talk him down to $350 fairly easy, maybe lower, and it's still a good deal, albeit not a 'drop everything and run' deal.

    I'm assuming that's 200 a pair. Why would anyone post a price show TWO speakers and then ask for 200 each? If so, RUN don't walk. Don't even bother with a long listen, if they work they're worth twice that easy! As someone said. You can flip those if they're not your thing. But you're not gonna find much that will best them at that price!

    I own two pair of Lis9's and it looks like my stands as well. These are awesome speakers and command double for what this listing is asking. It has to be for just one speaker, but needs checking out. I use them for two channel set ups and the response in both the mids and bass are exceptional. I would recommend them if for no other reason as an investment. They like power and when cranked they look for more. What a deal. Let us know what price you get them at.

    It looks like a store. Or a pawn/consign shop. Display case. They probably have no idea..i stopped at a local pawn shop in Maine and they had a mint HK & a NAD c350 for 75.00 4 years ago. I left a happy customer.

    That's a fabulous price, I would gladly pick them up for that and I do not need another pair of speakers.

    If you don't...I will!

    That's a screaming good deal for LSi9s.

    Just got off the phone with the seller these were sold first thing this morning, he said that he did not expect them to last that long. If one of you fellow members beat me to them congrats. I had the cash ready was hoping to make the deal, oh well at least I won't have to sneak em past the wife

    I scored a pair of black for <$200 few weeks ago. everything fine except some scratches on the side panels from both speakers. I took down the side panels and working on refinish them to cherry. The speakers look even better without the panels. they are all black high gloss.
