Oak Forte - $350 - Markham, IL

Recommended Posts

FWIW, they are definitely II's. Luckily, I was able to buy them even though two days had gone by since the ad was placed. I thought for sure I was going to miss out on them since I didn't have the cash to buy them but I decided to put my Heresy's up for sale to come up with the money.

They sold quick which was good but I was on pins and needles the whole day, worried that someone else would get the Forte's.

I was really surprised the seller still had them since he was very negotiable on the price. I was a little disappointed due to the cabinets having some flaws but it's nothing that can't be repaired. The main thing is all the drivers are working and they sound great. 

A HUGE thanks to opusk2k9 for posting the ad for them!

Agree, nice find at a good price.  You mentioned the Seller was open to negotiation. 

 

So, did you negotiate or did you pay his asking price?   B)

Those look great and will sound just as good as they look. 

 

Thanks! Looking forward to getting them set up in the living room with my Accuphase P-300/C-200/T-100 trio.

I got him down to $300 initially and then $250 when I went to look at them. Based on their condition I think I got a good deal.

Cosmetically, I would rate them somewhere between 7/10 to maybe 8/10. It's hard to see in the pictures but there are some pretty bad burn or stain marks on the top of one cabinet and a small area on the other cabinet where the top and side pieces got wet and separated. Fortunately, it's only a few inches long and towards the back of the cabinet.

Average selling price according to my numbers is $542 for Condition 8/10.  Slight condition issues or not, you got what all of us want, a deal

 

You done good.    :emotion-21:  :D

Thanks. I appreciate the information!

I'll message you the buy/sell information on the Heresy's I sold to get the Forte II's.

Great deal, now enjoy!

I' recall unboxing my Forte II from the day I purchase new. Enjoy today as much, if not more than when first unboxed. Over the years Forte's only required an occasional fresh oil rub.

Be sure to plan some time to listen to your music, as you have never experience before.
