What is the price for the 180"s and do you think the180"s are the better of the 305's vs. 180"s.

Thanks for your input.

Just got off the horn with Bob. The 180 amps will be back in production and ready to ship in eight to ten weeks. He said he will get back to me soon on the price.  305's he has in stock and are   $8000.


I run the 305's at the shop daily. The extra power is nice to have.

Steve

I saw your Sunfire on Audiogon. I'd like one in better shape physically but thank you for contacting me.

I guess its between the 305's and 180's.

Get back to me on the 180's price and i'll have to make a decision on just how mad to make the wife,
180's or 305's. Thanks for your help.

Well, if you would like to get a better look at the condition in person I might be going up to the shop this Thursday. The faceplate is immaculate and if any sort of rack, all damage is not seen. I do have someone else who said they were interested but seem to be backing out so they might be available. That's why I said might be able to help you. :P At any rate, I am sorry about the fire and hope you get your system up and running soon.  You should also consider the C-19. It is my favorite I have heard after Tom mods it.

Go for the 305's you will not regret having the extra power.
I had a set of Cherries 260's and sold them when I got my Silver Sevens.
The Silver Sevens run at 540 wpc .5% distortion, can not have enough power.

Sorry for your loss, hope you get sorted out soon.
