Hi guys! My name is Alex I'am from Romania and I need some help concerning a pair of JBL L220. I found them at one man that had a container with speakers delivered from Japan and L220 had the suspension rutten.He askes 2000$ for them and at the bottom are little scratched from the transportation.Everything is original on them.Please tell me what should I do?
The guy selles them with new susspension mounted and they sound incredible.
many thanks

I imagine JBLs are hard to find in Romania, especially older models like the L220.

If that's $2000 US, then it's too much. If it's lei, then that's about $760 US, and I say buy them now! You may not get another chance for classic JBLS, and if you do see a better model later, I think you can sell them to another collector for more money to buy what you want.

I don't know about in Romania, but here in the USA, much better JBLs can be purchased for half that money. :(

You can also build better designs for substantially less....

Wow, wish I was in CA!

Great deal on all that stuff.

Wonder why no picture?

I guess he spent all his money on vintage audio and not a camera.

I just paid them with 1200 $ and a laptop sony vaio model F31M .
you were right but in Romania these are really antiques in Usa the origin country I agree with you that you can easy find what you want.
I must say that L220 are the finest speakers that I ever had in my life , they make sounds that I never heard before with my other speakers L36 and L50.thank guys
