Holy cow that is an impressive collection of gear. 

He had several Klipsch speakers, including some Crites XO and tweets upgraded Belles for $3,000, that's close to double the going price.  $2,000 and up is Khorn country.

It all depends on the market and how bad someone wants them.  The "going price" is different all over the country as is what people are willing to pay.

Absolutely true!  A willing Seller and a willing buyer IS the bottom line.

Gotta go.  I'm a willing Buyer and I just got a note right now.  I have to meet a willing seller about an Emotiva XPA-5.  Road trip.  :D

Picked up these a few minutes ago. There are deals out there. Just gotta be patient.

Nice!  :emotion-21:  :emotion-19:  :emotion-22:

 

What's the story?  At that price, obviously you knew what you were looking at.  I don't know what version those are but you beat the average by at least four hundred bucks!

This is 30 miles away from me, but I can't justify the price unless I am missing something.

 

Hifiheaven.net has used Heresy III for $649 http://hifiheaven.net/shop/Klipsch-Heresy-III-pre-owned?language=en&currency=USD&gclid=CjwKCAiAk4XUBRB5EiwAHBLUMUiX5vP6bC-5UHWsLwfdNz3uJRZp9q8V_4aTkNctgON1yPp1r9EgdRoCTZAQAvD_BwE

 

New Audiovideo has them for $735.  http://www.newaudiovideo.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=9856

 

One CF-3 is like a little brother who wants to tag along all the time.

Well, the story is longer than it ought to be but it's fun to share.

I'm into old-school car audio gear as much as I'm into home theater & hi-fi gear. Searching for a JL Audio subwoofer last summer, I landed upon an ad for "a 15-inch JL woofer" for only $50. The picture was garbage but I went any how and picked it up. The kid selling it didn't know what it was or if it worked. I forked over $50 and left.

Later at home, I figured I should remove the woofer from its enclosure and determine which series it was. I was guessing that it was the cheaper model. As I'm removing the screws from the sub box, I realize it's not a 15" woofer but rather an 18" woofer. I quickly removed the last few screws, flipped over the driver and discovered I had found a JL Audio 18W6 - a fairly rare and hard to find speaker. Mine was a bit rough but I knew it still had value.

Fast-forward to this past weekend; I'm cleaning out a closet full of electronics and re-discover the JL 18W6 sitting there (am I the only one that has enough spare gear to outfit an entire neighborhood with audio?). I decide that it's way too big for me to use in my daily driver car so I list it on a  couple local web groups for vintage car stereo gear with an asking price of $250. Within minutes, I get replies from several interested parties and ended up selling it Sunday night.

After returning from meeting up with the buyer of the JL 18W6, I see the Craigslist ad for the CF3's but it's too far to drive Sunday night so I tell him I'm interested but can't get there until tomorrow (Monday). Note that the price of the CF3's is identical to the JL 18W6 I sold.

To wrap up this long story, I made the 3 hour drive down after work to pick up the CF3's, smiling the whole way home thinking about how I essentially turned my $50 into a pair of CF3's. The gentleman that was selling them said he was moving to San Antonio and couldn't take them with. One owner, some typical scratches, drivers look & sound great, complete set of spikes, decent grilles. I didn't even get a chance to hook them up when I got home tonight. Tomorrow should be fun.

As am I.  I still run an old school Orion 225 HCCA amp at 1 ohm to run my single 10 in the old Chevy truck.  I have a 250SX as well, just sitting in wait to run my mid's and high's.  These are the old 'military grade' boards.  Good stuff.

THAT is a great story!  Remember, those were $2,200 new.

 

And the even greater prize, to be worthy of being called a "Youthman Deal."  B)

@Youthman, @wvu80 a humble young padawan, but today picked up 25 albums, BIC 980 TT, Marantz SP 2062s, Marantz Imperial 6-Gs, and a Marantz 2240 for free. Friend bought a house and the last owner left some stuff... oh well.

It's hardly a Youthman deal when you pick up a few albums for $150,000. (along with a house)  You gotta do a LOT better than that!  :lol:

 

Still, free is free. 

 

EDIT:  I saw directly upstream where Youthman sanctioned the deal.  He's the grand poo-bah of the club, so what he says, goes.  B)
