    Default A small pair of McIntosh speakers

    Woah, just in case you need a more substantial monolith style of speakers than your SRS's. How would you like to replace all those tweeters with the "this year's model". How do you think they would sound off of a Sonic T-amp? :D Has anyone ever heard these?? I actrually did see them on Roger Russell's web site. And this guy had THREE pairs!

    No, I just started watching Craigslist but I only watch the local one. Too many listings to weed through for a major city like Boston. What was it?

    THey were the small ML-1C, he wouldnt post pics, or prices, i emailed him asking him about them. He said he was taking bids for them and in a week he would take the highest offer. Yet he wouldn't let anyone come see them, or post pics, or email pics, etc. In the end he emailed me 5 days asking my highest offer. I said $80 for the pair since you won't show me, and i don't know what kind of condition they are in, if they need refoam, etc. He said all the woofers will definately need refoaming and the cabinets are just OK, but they were high end speakers and he wants $150 each for them atleast. They aren't getting more than $170/pair in pristine condition on fleabay :(
