I bought a Sansui Six receiver from ebay, 40 bucks CDN and they guy lived about ten minutes away from me. It was awesome seeing all the hi-fi equipment he had. Fisher Tube receiver (I wish I had that instead!), Klipsch, Tannoy, A lot of reel-to-reels and about an hour or two of conversation about hi-fi. It was awesome!

This is so funny. He has to believe what he wrote. Caveat emptor.

I think I will send him an email so I can see him publish it in the auction.

I've *heard* that in the UK, Technics speakers are a respected upper midfi sort of brand. This could be what's causing the confusion. In the US, we all know the stuff sold here as technics is junk. Could be that Canada has the stuff for the UK market.

So.... check it out before you throw any stones...

I can't tell from the picture really, but it looks like it could be loaded with decent audax or vifa sorta quality level drivers.

Wise advice. A quick check showed that these sold for $150 new at Circuit City. $4000 Canadian is over $3000 US- hope the cabinets have been heavily damped with gold bricks.

I think there might be some confusion. Are you referring to the wood colored 3 ways I posted? Those are the speakers I owned, and yes I payed about $150 for them....they aren't the ones in the Ebay posting though.

I only ask because you mentioned the CD's, and those are in my picture. Sorry if that confused you

I've been watching the ebay posting and the guys has reduced his initial asking price down to $2399Can in 2 installments (tom1356: I did email him and it is not posted on the site).

Technics have produced some really interesting speakers (some from Japan that I've seen have been able to reproduce 20-100K absolutely flat - at $50000US, so they should), but they generally get panned on their low-fi stuff.

I've generally put them in the "not value for money" basket.

But, yes to the ebay comments. Caveat Emptor. There are some really good bargains out there to be had (and some great 'business' relationships to cultivate). But you can ripped off "something chronic" if you are not careful.

I'll be interested to see if they go off at all...

I'm prepared to be wrong...
Technics has made some very good high end equipment in the past including loudspeakers such as the SB-T1 which originally retailed at ~$2000 but these aren't them, not even close. The SB-T1 had horn tweet and mid in beautiful real wood. Very rare.
