If those are the GE woofers they are worth big bucks.   I should probably be contacting him rather than posting here.

Ain't no records at the Bethel Park Aldi.

I just picked up the Mariah Carey at the Wexford Aldi.   They said they get their weekly buys in on Tuesdays.   The records were in with the Christmas toys there.   It is the earlier red vinyl issue as I expected.   All six albums are older modern issues, so they may come up at similar savings at other outlets like PopMarket, ImportCD, etc., or they may be blowing out the last of them there.   The Peal Jam Ten was the double album issue with the added "Redux" version.   The Foo Fighters GH was also a double album.   I was very tempted to buy all three.   I'm sure Hoffman forum has info in each pressing, but at least on it's face it looks like a great value.

I have an original press Pearl Jam Ten and the reissue. The original came from my friend's wife. She worked at Camelot and had Ten and Verses sealed in a closet for years. Slightly warped, but otherwise awesome. The reissue is great, got one for $10 at HPB 50% off, a decent deal at 17.99. I think I have the Foo Fighters, if I do it's in the wife's pile, not a big fan. Only one I was interested in is the Adele, I'll keep my eyes open next time I'm there.

ads clones?

Those are a bargain.   If they had the metal grills like the Davids I would buy them.

Agree, definitely a bargain.  I've been watching them but can't justify another pair of speakers.  Would love to hear these things, though.  Would be interesting to know if they sound similar to the ADS generation that I've gotten to know.
ADS L2030, Parasound P5, TEAC UD-501, Audire Otez
ADS 910, Usher P303, Sonogy Black Knight mkII
Klipsch Chorus II, VPI HW-19 MkIII, Sumiko FT-3, Clearaudio Maestro, Restored Scott 222 or LK-72

I too can't justify another pair of speakers, but the >:D on the other shoulder keeps instigating...

That pair is very enticing, but just like I got rid of the 710s for fear of my boy destroying the domes, I couldn't feel safe with those either.   I know not everyone likes horns.   I do, and they are nearly indestructible to boot.

I am helping a friend from DuBois thin out his 'collection'.  A pair of Sansuis and a pair of AR5s are on their way to Ho Chi Minh City. 

I am surprised these lasted as long as they did but should be gone Monday.  They sound pretty nice but I plan to thin out my speaker collection next and don't want to add to it.
Yamaha PF800/Dual 721
DBX D5/Sony CA8ES
Yamaha C-2X
Hafler Five Hundred/Sansui AU9500/Heathkit SA-2/Parasound HC-1000
Canton CT800s/Vandersteen 2CE/Klipsch Heresy/Dahlquist DQ-10
