Hi, I have been lurking on this site for a while, its great. I am a low budget stereo nut, which makes finding JBL's kind of difficult. Anyway, my current system is a Marantz 2220B with a Yamaha CDC-96, and two JBL J320A's. I picked up the Marantz on ebay for $100, with a wood cabnet, the CD player was $5 at a garage sale, and the JBL's were $20 at a garage sale. I did run across a mint pair of JBL L-200B's at a garage sale about two months ago. I was five min late, and I could have had them. And they sold for $250 for the pair. I thought I was going to throw up.Oh well, I guess its a reason to keep looking, the stuff is still out there. Anyway, great site with a lot of well informed posters. Thanks for all the great info.

Enjoy your stay.

That's a heartbreak on the L200Bs. Keep looking. Eventually something big will break for you. :yes:

Las Vegas, we have some pretty good garage sales here. I also have a Marantz 4430 I picked up at one, for $40. Cleaned the pots, it works great. I think there are about a dozen guys around town that look for the hi-fi stuff on a consistant basis. I see them all the time. You just have to be first on the spot to get the deals.

Las Vegas, huh? We know who's hosting our next Lansing Heritage get-together now! :D

For good deals on vintage JBL, start watching your local Craigslist every day:
