WTB/WTTF: Omega Super Alnico Monitor (NYC)
« on: 12 Oct 2018, 02:35 pm »
Hi All,

Looking for a pair of Omega SAMs.  I can purchase them, but would ideally like to trade for them.  Let me know what you got!

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.

there's that other dude from CT that has been trying to sell his. Floorstand with 6inch alnico....I think... for cheap.

I have a pair in Zebrawood with Skylan 20" stands in mint condition with boxes.  I am located on Long Island (Huntington).  PM me if interested.

You will have to pry my Omega SAMs from my cold dead hands :uzi:
 
BUT if a trade is what you are looking for... perhaps your first born child :lol:

I had a pair of Super 3 XRS a few years ago and foolishly sold them (for financial reasons - so maybe not so foolish haha).  I fully expect to be keeping whatever SAM's I end up with for a very long time :)

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.
