You'd think the down economy would put a chill on the recently rising JBL prices but it seems the opposite is occurring——even on the formerly cheap stuff. Cases in point:
L7s go at $499 opening bid, pickup only, in NC just today: http://ebayitem.com/320281371996
Most have languished around $200 or gotten no bids. I paid $200 for mine two months ago and the most recent Ebay sale I saw (prior to this one) was $250
L20Ts bring over $200 plus shipping, two days ago: http://ebayitem.com/220262806222
$125 used to be the going rate and I paid $75 for mine on CL (thanks Heather!)
L5s brought $199 less than a week ago in NC (same buyer as the L7s today) with five bids and yet a pair today in MD already has sixteen bids and is over $325 with less than two hours left: http://ebayitem.com/320279828126
Even the lowly 4412A's in the vinyl-clad cabinets have brought as much as $649, though I question the legitimacy of the buyer since he has only three feedback ratings and two of them are from the same seller as this pair of 4412As from previous auctions. This one looks fishy to me: http://ebayitem.com/110265773162
These 4410s bringing $455 amazed me, but I know some of you really like the 10" monitors. Still, that's a chunk of change: http://ebaytime.com/300243089242
I like a good train wreck, so I watch stuff I already own, recently bought, or wish to add to my collection. We've all seen the rise in prices on the big stuff and the perennial hot items like L300s, but I'd have thought all the doom-saying would have affected pricing on the little stuff and even some series we've discussed here as undervalued. The opposite seems to be true this week.
Just my thoughts. Good and bad in there. But since I never sell anything . . .
