Next day there back up at starting at $320 w/ buy it now of $500 again no takers. So I contacted him and offered him $275. He says come get them. Sunday I travel the 80 miles only to find out that neither tweeter works and the that 6511 has tear in the cone. I'm ready to leave without them when he pleads for me to buy them. He is down on his luck and says the next stop is the dumpster. Even I didn't want that !! He said give me $50 and there yours. Now I'm not a wealthy man and I'm always looking for a baragin so I took them but paid him $100 plus $20 for LPs. He emailed me last and said when he gets back on his feet he wants to buy them back after I repair them

    I'm not going thru this so I can sell them back. He's SOL I'm afraid
    Good story and a great deal on a very worthy pair of SDA's. The 3.1's are probably the rarest of the SDA line up. I enjoy mine daily and doubt I will ever part with them.

    I'd say the seller will most definitely be SOL after you get them up and running.

    Yea so the 194 and the 198 are out of stock.
    Maybe I will get a couple. I wonder if this means they are pulling back on support for old product
    a bit.

    If that's the case, I better buy a few more as well...... I hope that's not the case though.

    That's good news, give the new RDO's at least 50 hours to really start to open up, you will be rewarded for your patience.

    btw, I also have a VPI table and a Rogue Stealth Phono Pre, good combo
