Picked up a near mint pair of S3100's today. Haven't got a chance to hook them up yet, hopefully later tonight. I will try to post some pics.

Hey, thanks Giskard and Ian. I can tell I will have my work cut out for me dialing them in. I have a "crap" room with extremely limited placement options. In our new house, the room will be 11' x 20' with a 10' ceiling. I'm thinking corner placement with some toe-in will be the ticket in that room? I guess time will tell, for now I am enjoying them. I have to consider they have been sitting in the boxes for over four years and may need some time to loosen' up, especially the woofers. I'm driving them with a B&K Reference 4420 amp, 225 watts into 8 ohms. I can see and hear that they like POWER!

Andy, the boxes are dated 03/20/96.

Some of you Bay Area guys may know the seller. His name is Greg and he had a business called Soundplan in Novato up until a few years ago. It was one if those appointment only gigs. Great guy to talk to and deal with!

If you don't mind my asking what are they costing now days?

Hey Beer, I paid him his asking price on Audiogon plus the Paypal fee. The only other expense was gas for the four hour round trip. For what they are getting for L-65's, L-300's and the like, I think it was a great deal!:yes:

Congratulations, very nice!

I'm looking forward to hear a comparison with those other 2-ways, the 4430's you have (or once had?). :)

Cheers

Oznob,

you really have landed on your feet with that deal. I have never heard them, but I have heard nothing but GREAT things about them.

Just what the DR ordered for the new home. Pretty high on the WAF scale too.

Quite a handsome speaker.:applaud:

Hi Ian,

Ti has the S2600's with the same compression driver and horn, smaller cabinet with the ME120 HS 12" woofer. I nearly bought one of the two pair of 2600's offered by the seller but opted for the 3100. Hey, bigger is better, right? Oh, I think sleep is over-rated!:p
