    Default Fair price range for Monitor 5?

    What do y'all think is a fair range of price for a pair of Monitor 5 that are missing the grills, but otherwise in great shape?

    Edit: I'm not looking to sell a pair, I'm thinking of buying.

    Wasn't it "Boy George" that sang "Karma, Karma, Karma, Kameloen"? Would these make great Christmas Karma?...

    Not sure about that...I can honestly say I have never heard that song all the way through.

    Auction isn't over yet. I think the reserve is too high anyway.

    Well, someone else decided they were worth $95 (using the BIN price). I thought they were worth $70 maybe.

    I just paid $95 for a nice condition pair of 5b's with the SL1000 tweeters. Having been following them on *bay for the last couple months - they range from $65-105 depending on tweeter and condition. Shipping is all over the board but runs about $40-50. Careful, mine arrived w/two corners dented and I am negotiating the insurance claim process now. Speaks sound perfectly great though. Good luck and be patient - you'll get a good deal.
