I reached out to him already, but the price is a little bit out of my budget-- especially considering the "B-stock" designation. I know the damage is merely cosmetic, and I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I'm kind of particular about keeping my gear pristine
Thank you for the recommendation though, just trying to see what else is out there.
I visited him and saw them just 3 hrs ago. Literally. You'd need a microscope to see the blems. Really. We are talking about a scuff on one of the driver surrounds. And the corner damage he mentions is like a pin prick. Neither would likely even show in photos.
No offense...but only the most anal of the anal would have a problem with it. The speakers are gorgeous in natural cherry. My friend only mentioned it because he is super honest in his dealings. He under-promises and over-delivers. His photos don't show their true beauty.
As far as pricing, that's between you and him. I'm sure he has a lil room to come down. My advise: if you want them, make an offer.
