    Default Texas SDA 1's

    SDA 1 in Austin
    Photo doesn't show crap.
    Is this a good price if they are in good shape?

    Depends on the SDA 1 model. If it was SDA 1C, then yes. Otherwise, eh... you could find better.

    Ask him for better pics. Looks more like he's showcasing his house, rather than the speakers.

    Looks like a nice house...but what do the speakers look like?...lol You can't even see them...except for as a vague shape off in the distance...lol

    That's not to bad of a price...I've seen them go higher than that, but I've also seen them go much lower than that.

    Lunazul, Hope I did not step on your deal but I did see these on Austin CL, called owner and had him send me pics.

    They are SDA-1c with oak. The picture was off a cameria phone which sucked but after calling the owner I was convinced he would negotiate and as he described them as excellent, had original pin/blade cable and they belonged to his brother and was selling them for school supplies.

    I drove down to Austin this morning and they look and sound great. Only problem is the side panals in a few places need to be reglued. No biggie.

    They are in Plano now, as soon as one of my sons get home I will move them in the house and takes pics.

    The pic below is what he sent me yesterday morning.

    Heh, heh, what an SDA sniping bastid you turned out to be :p:D:D:D. What are you going to do with another pair...surrounds?

    We had some friends over last night and we put on Phantom of the Opera, BD. Man, that disk has some dynamic range. Played it at reference, dialog (what there was of it) was just right. When the orchestra, tympani and organ kicked in, it blows your hair back. SDA surrounds are killer.

    Onkyo NR1007 pre-pro, Carver TFM 45(fronts), Carver TFM 35 (surrounds)
    SDA 1C, CS400i, SDA 2B

    Hey Ron, remember you made made me the SDA freak I am. At least I only had to drive 420 mile round trip for these. I doubt I will keep the Studio's, promised my wife I would sell them in order to get the Oaks.

    You would think with DFW having a couple of million people SDA's would come up around here. Austin always has the best stuff, sometimes Houston.

    I was hoping to find a good deal on amps and so forth while down there but no such luck.

    It is killing me to have to wait until one of the boys get home to unload them. I am pacing and looking at the clock. They are just too heavy for my wife to help unload them.

    I know a pair of Studio 1Cs coming for sale in Dallas now;)

    Congrats on your purchase. Glad it was worth the trip.
    not the best time for me to be buying toys anyway.
    Good to see them go to someone that will appreciate them.

    Hells bells. I finally wean myself of thinking I need something like those, and there they turn up in my own yard like the durndelions.

    I was just grousing about how I'd have jumped on those speakers 6 months ago, as close they are to me, gdb. ;)
    And considering the size of my livingroom/listening area, I'm sure they would be overkill.

    What I shall do is I shall show that auction to my wife to demonstrate my indifference to some of the awesomest speakers out there, thereby accruing valuable WAF.





    That is mega-lame, isn't it.

    I'm just north of the Austin area. I do see some nice things pop up on CL around here on occasion. Never seem to be at the right time though. This economy doesn't help a whole lot, but then good things happen to those with patience.

    Or so I hear

    No one bid on them, only up for a few days, starting price too high. I have a feeling someone is suddenly moving from an apartment or rental house.

    I don't think they were up long enough for anyone to find out about them to get a bid on. 2-3 days? Who does that?

    I emailed the guy today just to get some info, see if he'd demo. If you're interested, I'll keep you posted.

    $700 is hardly too high for 2.3s. If all is truly good with them, that is a good price for this model.

    This is just my current assessment of the SDA market with fair asking prices for the models in todays market with all in good cosmetic and fully working condition and quite a few for sale.

    SDAII - $200-$350 add $100 for Pin/Blade for upgrades
    CRS -$250-$350 Pin/Blade+ add $100 due to upgradeability to 4.1tl
    SDA1A $250-$300 B $300-$400 C - $450-$600
    SRSII - $550-$750
    SRS3.1 - $550-$750
    SRS2.3 - $750-$950 tl add $100
    SRS 2.1 - $1000-$1500 tl adds easy $200-$300 simply cause they are the biggest and last.


    I know it isn't a complete list of all models, and as always condition and location rules, as do upgrades.

    John, I'm only interested as an observer. I'm waaaay too far away to pick those 2.3s up!! If you're interested... I suggest that you jump on em this time around. Me...I'm going to enjoy my pin/blade bi-ampable SRSIIs that I only had to pay $450 for, and only had to drive approx. 4.5hrs. each way to pick up ! Maybe in a year or so I'll see if I can find some 2.3s close by.:)

    I meant it's a high opener considering it was such a short-time listing. The guy only had 1 feedback which is what caught my eye first.

    Edit: now that he's relisted with a 1 week window, he's alot more likely to get an auction rolling.
