One of the benefits of this on-line community is the way members help each other. Sometimes it's with advice or information, sometimes it's with free auditions, sometimes it's pick up and delivery, and sometimes it's facilitation.
On that last one, I want to thank Regis for facilitating my acquisition of two more SVA1800s this morning. Without his involvement, this would not have happened, so thanks Regis!
For $300 and the cost of gas, I went to Westwood (UCLA area), met the seller who had driven down from Valencia, and got two pristine SVA1800s with about $650 worth of components in each. NO, I'm not going to part them out: they're going in with my other two to make a four-speaker, two channel, ear-bleeding, quad Bi-Radial Horn, quad bi-amped statement.
