Default Does this look familiar?

The picture is not high resolution, but they look hauntingly familiar...

My first speakers I ever bought were Technics.

They were wood looking (like the ones in the second post), they had a 12" woofer, a 4" cone midrange and a 2" cone tweeter. They were $140 at Circuit City in mid 90's.

They sounded so awsome after I hooked up to my then Sanyo minisystem, I thought they were the best


Haha...I found em....this is them

48Hz-20Khz +- 10dB

I'm not knocking Technics, they've had some pretty good speakers over the years (I had a pair about 20? years ago). But the ones on the ebay listing - I don't think they're the $4000Can value.

I'm prepared to be wrong...

So, I got a reply back from the seller and he says to me, "Oh no, you must be mistaken. These are GENUINE TECHNICS speakers are are almost 4.5 feet tall! They sound wonderful and are worth every penny." I can't believe this guy....

Default Its no different than any marketplace

Last week I bought a Hafler transnova p7000 factory refurb for 330 dollars on ebay. Great, straight deal, sounds fab. So, its not that there's no good deals left, its just that the demographics of the web now match the demographics of the general public. Idiots abound, caveat emptor, sharks feast on the idiots etc.

Clearly this guy is an idiot because he is now requesting in his listing that people stop sending him emails telling him what a rip off it is! Anyone who offers him at this this point deserves what they get.
