Like I said, I could use the vacation money.   If they don't sell this week, they probably don't sell.

BTW, I was doing some reading on them.   It seems there is such fat bass from two 7" drivers because each is in it's own internal cabinet (that also explains the weight).   The cabs are different volumes, each tuned to reinforce different frequencies.   I thought that was an interesting approach.

I got an email from a guy in Houston who says he is an ADS collector.   He says he is willing to send a postal MO for $300 plus actual shipping.   I don't know how I could get scammed if I wait until after cashing the MO to ship, but am I missing something?   TIA.

Even a postal MO can be counterfitted.  Be careful out there.

From https://es-about.usps.com/postal-bulletin/2012/pb22328/html/mo_003.htm

Verifying U.S. Postal Service Money Orders

Follow these steps to cash a Postal Service™ money order:
1. Check that the amount does not exceed the legal limit: $1,000 for domestic, and $700 for international postal money orders.
2. Check that the proper security features are present:
n When held to the light, a watermark of Benjamin Franklin is repeated from top to bottom on the left side.
n When held to the light, a dark line (security thread) runs from top to bottom with the word “USPS” repeated.
n There should be no discoloration around the dollar amounts, which might indicate the amounts were changes.
These appear in Postal Service Notice 299, U.S. Postal Money Order Reference Card, or online at www.usps.com/shop/accepting-money-orders.htm.
3. If the money order seems suspicious, call the U.S. Postal Service Money Order Verification System at 866-459-7822.
Please provide this information to local banks and retail­ers, as they also receive Postal Service money orders for cashing.

I'd rather sell local, but all I've gotten so far is a half dozen emails from people telling me why the ADS are only worth $150.   Screw that, I'll keep 'em before I'll sell than at that price.   They are really nice speakers.

If someone really just wants to low ball me, they should offer $50 for the EPIs.   That I might consider.

Tell them to kiss your a__ Stal, those ADS are well worth the price you have up.  Especially considering how clean they are.

I wouldnt let my 810s go, for no less then 300.  If no one liked it, oh well,  I could keep them and be happy with them.

Those are some beauties you have there.  Good luck selling them.

If fact, come by my house with a large wad of bills, I have a few things to tempt you with. >:D
