    Default As an apreciator of great deals....

    ....I completely agree!

    Great Gear! Great Price!
    throw in a decent sub, and you've got a great system for under 1K.

    Wow....that WOULD be awesome.

    I can't say I'm much of a Klipsch fan but that Polk setup, like Trubluluc said, would be killer with a decent sub.

    Luc,
    He saw a WTB ad that I had ran awhile back and kept my address handy.He said that he would contact me when he was ready to sell and would give me first dibs.Well he did and I really screwed up by not buying them.The secret to this deal was that he offered them to me for way lower that what they were advertised for!:(

    hehe

    you folks are nuts...

    RT800i sells for 250 or so + Shipping

    The CS400i sells for 200 or so + shipping

    the FX500i sells for like...what? 200 max

    650-700 + Shipping

    Looks average?? :confused:

    Great deal if you look at the new price, used...just average. However it is a great deal if you buy the whole system and pick it up as it saves time/money/gas...

    Nice snag - if you can pick em up!

    Hell Sid, it is a nice system. Yeah the price is average, but your getting a good 5 CH set up, all timbre matched, in one shot.

    You're so negative...:)

    Me personally, I feel it's a killer price for a killer 5 channel setup.

    To hell with what **** goes for on Ebay! If you feel it's worth to pay a specific amount for a specific product, then rock and roll!

    That Orion Book can kiss my ass to. How do they determine the prices that are published in their book? Orion Book value, Ebay value and personal value are all different animals.

    Would you pay over 800 grand for a Barry Bonds 700 HR ball that realistically has a value of a few dollars (price of the ball new)? Hell no!!! Someone did and obviously it was worth it to them.

    There was a CS400i that went on the bay for >$350 a couple weeks back. Must be all those radio operators bidding and jacking up the price. ;) You know, for those binaural re-defecators.

    The deal has been done, folks. Jeff and I got together at lunch time to complete the deal.

    BTW, I'm still a Polk head, as my ceiling speakers in my new house will be the rc80s. I hooked these up a couple of weeks ago when I got them. Of course, sitting on the floor tilted up and not mounted into a ceiling is not the best way to test these, but they do sound a lot like the rt800i.

    Jeff, thanks again. Good doing business with you.:)

    Sweet? Yes, in an authoritative kinda way...

    Ahhhhh... my apologies, CC...

    That said, a well placed comma can make all the difference... ;)

    And my paradigm is when I read "Sunfire Sig", I think of their amps, not subs...
