    Default New/Old Toys ...

    A real old friend of mine is getting ready to sell a set of old Mc speakers for ridiculously cheap that I'm gonna get to use for a month in my 2 Channel set up.

    These should be a real treat ...

    A. Hardly and off-topic post, 2ch or Speakers would fit nice (for future searches)

    2. How cheap?

    D. Why aren't YOU buying them?

    Cheers,

    I've heard them in his 2 channel but not mine. I may very well buy them after listening to and playing with them for awhile in my own environment. There are unfortunately only so many sets of speakers one can use.

    I think he said around $1500 which is a very good price for them especially since I know they've been totally refurbed within the last two years.

    PW,

    I have yet to find a limitation on the use of speakers. When I run out of amps, I'm buying a speaker switcher...

    Great set of speakers though! Nice find for the price!

    How much power are you going to throw at them beasts?

    20-30 tweeters per row aint it? I can just imagine....is that speaker harsh or what?

    I think it's 23 ...

    Actually my recollection is that they're extremely smooth in the top end.

    I'll give it a go with an older pair of Krell 200w mono's I still have.

    It's about space more than usage. I usually have no prob in the WAF department, but I'm headed towards getting a different large set of speakers a couple of weeks from now which if it happens then I'd probably either be selling the RTi12's, 6's, FXi5's & CSi5 or doing a mini HT setup in the guest bedroom and I still have my eyes out for a set of some flavor of SRS's to side by side with other things here.
