After a bit of a hunt, last night I brought home a very nice pair of 1986 SDA SRS 2 speakers. These are the SDA speakers I've always been the most interested in as they are a little smaller than the full SRSs, but still have the same driver layout unlike the 1Cs. They are completely stock, and in very good condition except for a small snag in the lower grill cloth on the left speaker. The wood on both is almost perfect without any water stains or scratches, and drivers all appear to be perfect. They came with the original blade-blade interconnect, and have the first, non-biwire binding post cup. I have yet to give them a listen in my system as I got home late from the pick-up, but I'm excited to hear what my 400wpc, class-D Gary Dodd amp will do with these speakers. My last pair of SDAs was CRS+ that I turned into 4.1TLs, so these should provide me with a nice listening experience. These are the tallest speakers I've had in my system, but they are not as deep as some others, so placement is actually easier as I don't have to bring them out into the room. I'll probably need to adjust placement a little based on listening and bass response, but I currently have them set-up in what seems to be the ideal placement for my room based on my SDA experience.
The gentleman who was selling them was downsizing, and had them on furniture carpet sliders, so all eight feet are even in good condition. I though I was getting a good deal, until he surprised me by handing me a file folder which included the original laminated brochures and paperwork from Polk! I know I'll be opening them up for a fair bit of upgrades to bring the sound quality a little more current, but I almost feel bad with a minty pair of speakers like these that include the original paperwork!
These pictures are from the sellers house, but I'll snap some more of them in my rig.
