wuzzzer Posted May 3, 2006 Share Posted May 3, 2006 I just had to post a thread about the awesome deals and experiences I've had using the internet so far, mainly regarding electronics & speakers. Last June I bought a set of new in the box RF-25 speakers for $460 including shipping from eBay. Six months later I found a pair of RF-7s that were 1 year old on craigslist for $1000. I bought the RF-7s and then I sold the RF-25s to fund the RF-7 purchase and MADE $150 more than I paid for them! I've found that the RF-7s have sufficient bass for me so I unhooked my Definitive Technology subwoofer a couple weeks ago and planned on selling it on eBay. I didn't really want to have to pack up and ship such a heavy sub, though. A few days ago I ran across a 'Wanted' ad on craigslist for any type of Definitive Technology speakers. I emailed the person and shot him a price that was comparable to what the subs sold for on eBay. He agreed to a price and tomorrow I'm driving to deliver the sub to him since I already have to drive near where he works anyway. I bought an Harman / Kardon 730 Twin powered receiver last October for $80. I just re-sold that on eBay for $133.51. I had locally advertised a Klipsch center channel and two pairs of Definitive Technology bipole satellite/surround speakers, $75 for the Klipsch and $100/pair for the Def Techs. No takers for weeks. I put them up on eBay and one Def Tech pair sold for over $200, the Klipsch sold for $99 and the other Def Tech pair sold for $150. Its just amazing what kind of deals you can get using the internet. While they might not be as good as the '$20 Cornwalls at a garage sale' type of story, a deal is a deal nonetheless! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
