Awesome. But I must admit, I couldn't find a list on the site. I'll zap them an email, but if you know where they have that list, that would be great.

Nathan, what Thiels are you selling?
Pair of 2.3s in Ebony (for which I have the original boxes); Pair of .5's in oak & a single SCS3 in black ash (for which I don't). The SCS3 won't be a big problem, because it's large for a center but still normal in terms of finding packing materials, but the .5's while not as beastly as the 2.3's are still going to be tough to find a generic box for. On the other hand, since the .5's blue book value is $500ish, I cannot afford to spend too much on boxes. Who knows, maybe I keep a pair, for two-channel listening. It's not the deal I made with she who must be obeyed but maybe "Honey, I tried to sell them but wasn't successful, so let's use them in another room until I find a buyer" will work!
They are quite handsome, which she agrees with:
