I think, but am not sure, that a price adjustment is due... Not that I'm interested, it's just my assumption.

I have enough experience buying audio equipment (both modern and vintage) to know that eventually a buyer would have come along who did not want the long wait for a local pair and/or did not want to deal with travel needed to obtain a pair.  If I was in need of dumping these, then yes, the price would be lower.

Respectfully, we could discuss price and why I believe they are worth the price all day long but in the end, it comes down to the fact I own them and I value the speakers at the price previously communicated.  Whether they sell or not, is not an issue.

Did you ever wonder why you can't taste your tongue?

Price adjustment?

Why doesn't he just make them a full $2000 and post a picture?

Not that I'm interested either...

Why don't you just ask me instead of talking about me in the third person?  Seems a bit rude, eh?

Well, I could care less if you sell those antiquated particle board refrigerators. I made the suggestion in good humor because I'm aware that the general utility of the active members on this forum is such that they will be more inclined to take your ad seriously if you post photographs and kindly introduce yourself in the new member section as opposed to referencing your reputation on other audio sites as a valid credential. As I'm sure you've noticed, this forum isn't like the others. Above all things, we value humor. :)

Sorry if I offended you and / or your third person persona. I meant no harm by my comments.

Cool? Cool.  ;D

It's cool.

I referenced other audio sites because it is where I have sold things and have feedback.  Sheesh.

Has anybody here ever eaten tongue? Does it taste like anything?

Man you are one cool clever dude.  Tongue from a cow is awesome.  Delicious.  You should try it.

Btw, Sunnydaze, I said anyone is welcome to have a listen. In person.  In my home.  That is a much more solid stance than introducing myself on a forum under a pseudonym like most everyone here.  No?

Time to leave the thread alone and stop bumping this to the top.  People have things to sell.

The flavor is okay, but I couldn't get past the rubbery texture.

Do you think orange was a fruit or color first?  Hmm.

I'm going to go ahead and say that orange was first heard.

I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.
