    Quartets

    Found another pair for ya'll, again. This one is near Minneapolis and the price is $450. Will be interesting to see how many days these last compared to the other recent listings. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/ele/d/mound-klipsch-quartet-speakers/7018326264.html

    Quartets

    I got $750 within the first 24 hours when I sold my Quartets on Ebay.
  5. This is the Hot Topic for me now. Going to concentrate on the sale of this amp. Time wasters and my own refusal to give shipping quotes have proven to be past road blocks on other sights. Please research your own shipping costs. I would love to sell this here to another member. I will pack it myself like it is going to war. I can deliver this myself if required for 50 cents per mile from 53932.
  6. The other ones on the list are not current, but are not vintage either, 5-10 years as can be evidenced by their current resale pricing.
  7. A very accurate statement. Do not confuse any L100 with the new classics, other than they are 3 way speakers in a wood cabinet. Best bang for the buck 3 way vintage speaker in a space conscious wood cabinet with true impressive bass response to 30Hz for under $1K the JBL 240Ti is my go to speaker. Above 50Hz, another story completely. If you want to do better than 240Ti you could look for JBL M2 Master Reference Monitors or JBL 4367 Synthesis consumer versions. Expect to expand your budget $5K-8K. Other recommendations for high performance, lowish price tags, and smaller cabinet sizes on the used market that will beat the snot out of the ones the OP is entertaining are: Revel Performa F52 Definitive Technology BP7000 Paradigm Reference Signature S8 Klipschorns make the performance list, but unfortunately their size puts them out of the running for this list Of course each one of these speakers has their place, and will perform admirably in their own respectful ways in most peoples homes. In the brand new speaker world, it is very hard to beat proven winners on the used market for any given price range.
  8. He is talking about the new release versions. I have experience with all iterations of the JBL L100/T/T3 as well as L20/L40/L80/L100/L200 T/T3. I listened to both of these speakers at Axpona 2019 and preferred the Forte III over the L100 Classics, although neither were up to the standards that the other rooms were producing that weekend. I would recommend Dean finding a pair of JBL L100T and rebuild the crossover to the L100T3 specification. This will get you close to the sound of the newer version while evaluating this purchase decision. This route will still allow for a potential purchase of either pair, while still keeping an eye/ear on the new Cornwall IV. If you want a pair of JBL L100T, I have a project pair you could have for $100 plus some gas money @Deang. Not meant as a solicitation, as this is a blind giveaway only, for a friend in need, with the skills required to pull this off.
  9. Had a hard time choosing. Went with the ones with the patent from Monoprice.
  10. You should know. Your children are well traveled. Having to make a choice was very difficult. I had many offers, but I waited it out to make sure they would be going to a good home where they will be loved. I will be enjoying the Chorus II's indefinitely. I believe we now have 3 happy homes.😀. No regrets. Am I right? How are you doing George?
  11. I had a great time letting these go to a wonderful new owner @StratCountry. Will be looking for the updates on that new listening space. Enjoy.
