Certain things I buy for resale, certain things I buy for myself, and others I buy for friends to pass along a great deal at no cost. Each scenario is different.

    I will say this: if I didn't buy certain items for resale, there is no way in hell I'd be where I'm at in this hobby, either experience wise or gear wise.
    ^^^^Absolutely. I mostly buy with the intent of keeping for myself, but if I'm browsing ads and see a sure-fire couple hundred bucks sitting right there in front of me, I'll go pick something up. What the heck.

    I'll usually spend some time with whatever I get... enables me to hear new stuff and different combinations.

    Again guys, I apologize for that post. I didn't mean to derail the thread. If flipping is your thing, then cool beans. I guess I have a personal bias against it because of one transaction in particular a few years prior. I was selling a receiver and this guy showed up to buy it. He had a sob story about why he wanted the receiver and that he was on a strict budget. I felt bad for the guy and lowered the price of the AVR for him and even threw in a pair of Polk bookshelf speakers for not much more. I thought I had done the guy a favor.

    Less than a week later, all of the gear was on Craigslist with a MUCH higher price on it than what he paid. I was pissed off to no end. He even listed links to other gear he was selling and it became clear that he was a flipper, nothing more. I wanted to strangle him.

    ThAt would piss me off too. I don't disclose I buy for resale, but I don't tell a sob story either. I agree on a price we are both comfortable with and never ask for less afterwards. I could see where it would feel more personal after that experience.

    Not to continue to derail the thread, but no problem, HTguru, I was just a little surprised at the post after reading about a lot of other people on here demo-ing used gear like I do. So far everything I have bought used, I paid what they were asking, it's just that in some cases they asked too little.

    I've not heard these so I can't say how good they sound, but as one of Best Buy's "Deals Of The Day", the price sure seems right:

    ^ I bought a pair of those a few months back when they were on sale for $40. They were a good fit in my rear doors and made a big improvement over the stock speakers. For $30 you can't go wrong.

    South Carolina? Looks like South Charlotte. I have family down there, too. I'd love to get those and have my sister hold onto them. Probably gonna be down there in December. Too bad I have absolutely no money right now lol. The seller has those on Ebay as well. If I were you, I'd grab those suckers before somebody else does.

    I will fight you for them! LOL! What a great deal on those f/x300's....when I was searching for some f/x500's, $75 is the cheapest I could find for the 300's or the 500's but those went pretty quick. I ended up paying $160 for my 500's.

    Anyway, you should contact DSkip...he offered to help some other dudes out with a purchase.

    Yeah, I am sure it's close to Charlotte and I work in South Charlotte so could probably check them out petty easily. If I had the extra bucks, I would get them and hold them for you. I had a pair of RT55i's and liked the Monitor 7's better, but they did sound good.

    If I had the funds right now, somebody would be getting paypal'd, trust me. But I'm probably done with any major speaker or electronics purchase for a while. I told my gf about two pairs of speakers ago, that I was done. "This is the system I want, I promise." Well of course something better comes along the following week. "This is it, I promise." After the RTe55's that I should get in the mail today, hopefully I will be done for a while. :)

    I used to makes such promises to the wife. Now the only promise - which is unspoken - is that I will sell something every time I buy something and keep things more or less even. Don't make promises you can't keep!

    I am not familiar with the speakers, but I like the design for some reason. Look like no-nonsense Optimus speakers and the rest of the equipment makes it a pretty good deal if you want a garage setup
