Hey guys, Someone told me that there is a big market overseas (thailand/korea/china/japan) For vintage JBL and Altec stuff...
Was wondering what your guys' thoughts were on that, and is anyone selling over there? If so what methods, tricks do you have if any!?

Thanks in advance!

Sell? As in get rid of some of my 14-pairs of JBL speakers?

The thought never crossed my mind. :D

JBL has been one of the most sought after speakers in Japan for many years.
While America listens to the annoying Bo$e adds and then goes out and buys the junk, Japan covets our JBL speakers. :blink:

And, apparently, not enough of us covet theirs in that models made here (USA) for the Japanese market aren't even sold here.
