    Would be $120ish in gas in my car to go down and get them. I'm still dealing with the guy a bit, though and might not need to worry about it.

    i still think that is in the ballpark if shipped. Wait a few minutes and the other geniuses will surely chime in:D





    After doing a small search. IMO it is a tad high, but not too bad. Good Luck

    If they are in good shape, and you're confident the seller can pack and ship successfully, it's not a bad price.

    I'm a bit concerned about the shipping. How have others shipped them successfully? Looks like they are just packed in the original boxes.

    If they have original boxes that's a plus. The past few tranactions I've done I have gone to the UPS website and if you have the true weight and box dimensions their shipping calculator is pretty accurate within a few dollars. It isn't going to be cheap.

    I would tell the seller you'll pay the extra to have the UPS store double-box them. Otherwise, they do survive shipping to the stores in the original packing.

    That's very reasonable.

    Probably talking a couple extra Franklins if you go this route.

    Road trip may not be bad idea. You get to hear them when you get there plus you know they'll get home safe. Is it about 15 hrs. round trip?

    If the seller has the original boxes and packing, and all the UPS store has to do is build an outside box, might not be that bad. I had them build an outer box for a shipment that was much smaller, and they only charged me about $12.

    Just buy them!

    Just buy them!!!!! :D

    I have gone to "flat top Larry" here in town who runs the Postal Shoppe in several locations and he is top notch not only in CS but packing as well, and it wasn't cheap.

    I sent a pair of sl2000's in their own packing and had him dbl box them, it cost me like $18 to ship those to NYC. By the same token I sent a single 5B I packed my self and dropped off at Office Depot for about $24. The 5B was huge compared to the sl2000's. That's been my limited experience.

    H9 - here's how this deal is going down! He will buy the LSi15's then realize how good they are for HT. On the FM goes the RTi70's, CSi30, and the RTi28's. He'll be looking for a deal on the LSiC and LSi7's. Then he'll still need a 2 channel rig, and that's where the SDA-2A's come in :D

    Just like the A-Team, I love it when a plan comes together!

    She's great, but... she has more of a visual threshold than you might think. These are going in the living room, so I can't push it too hard.

    Grab the wife and have nice drive to get the LSI15's. Take her to dinner. Make it like a mini 1 day or 4 hour vacation.

    H9, As many a wise audio addict on this forum have said... If I don't like'em (aka if the SDA's pull me in with their tracktor beam) I can always sell'em.
    Congrats on finally getting *most* of your 2 ch system functional. You can always come and listen to my SDA's since Mich won't let the ugly bastages in the living room :D:D:p:p:).

    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass
