  • Too many speakers

    I have too many speakers and hope to find new homes for some of them. Please see my ad in the Classifieds: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/sh...-%283-pairs%29

    Somehow I got an unwanted photo attached as a thumbnail at the bottom and can't figure out how to eliminate it.
    Thanks,
    Paul

      Re: Too many speakers

      Yep. I'm running out of room to store them in the basement (I maintain a good temperature/humidity environment there) and with maybe one or two exceptions, I can't carry them upstairs by myself to listen to them on some sort of rotating basis. I have 4 pairs of speakers that get used every day, 3 upstairs and one in the basement. Of course I'd like to get something in return from them for my efforts and I hate to see them just gathering dust (they aren't really as they're covered).

        HI Paul

        Good luck with your sale - all the designs are fantastic and your wood work is impeccable. If you are not successful here, why not try Axpona - Bryan made a comment about it in Chicago, but its in early stage - your speakers and designs are prime for it.

        Regards

          Any specialty audio shops around you that might do a consignment deal? I've tried Audiogon with my 442's, with no luck. It does cost a few bucks, maybe you'll have better luck than me. Your designs are a bit more classical than mine.

              I don't know that there are any such shops in my area. In the past I did sell a couple of speaker pairs via Audiogon and I'm still a member, I think, but I haven't even visited their site for well over a year.

                That's a very kind and generous offer, Craig, and if anyone is seriously interested in doing this, I for sure will take you up on it.

                    Nope, too many bad things have happened to people from dealing with strangers on Craig's List. Also, I figure I would more likely find someone who would appreciate these speakers by using this forum.
