    They usually sell used for around $500?

    That's a great price for $250, even with them being 1st generation. Add $300 to mod the crossover and you'll end up with a killer monitor for just $550.

    What's the difference between the 1st and 2nd generation lsi 9's besides the finish?

    Thanks

    The veneer finish on the 1st generation cherry is a rather golden stain. No where nearly as attractive IMHO as the reddish cherry of the 2nd generation.

    That's the lowest I've ever seen, even on the bay.

    See this thread here where I asked a similar question answered by Polk CS. Its a bit more than just the finish. Apparently at some point there was also a bevel.

    If this forum were full of my close friends, I'd swear they were just screwing with me.

    I pay $515 to have a pair shipped from Boston and less than a week later here's a pair 15 miles from my house for $250???

    I think I'll go listen to my new 9's and realize I got a really good deal...I just didn't get to steal them like whoever gets these is doing:)

    Assuming Susie_Q with no feedback makes good on the transaction, I'd say she is a disgruntled wife getting even for her husband taking her to a Monster Truck show for Valentine's Day. ;)

    I do want to be clear that I'm VERY happy with the price I paid. Add to that the speakers have been well taken care of by a Polkie, the interaction with SKsolutions was great, and I was very confident in the product I was buying. On top of that, I really needed black, not cherry. I did almost think it was a joke when I saw this thread though:)

    And hopefully Andy did get this pair and they are indeed an 8/10

    mmadden: too funny

    Well, I didn't get to her first but I am in the running. She said there is one other local guy ahead of me, and if he doesn't pay soon, looks like I might get them.

    Apparently, her husband died recently and she just didn't know what they were worth. I'd almost feel bad getting them for $250 knowing that. . . . ALMOST.
