It's exactly for this reason that I don't believe this seller bought these Salk Soundscapes just to sell them for a profit. If he did, why would he pay extra for all these custom additions with his personal perferences which could potentially make them harder to sell?
Also, why would he bother setting these up and listening to them if he was planning on selling them? If his intent was to just flip them for a profit, wouldn't he just leave them in the box instead of unpacking and putting hours on them which reduces their perceived resale value? Also, why wait a full month to sell them instead of just putting them on Agon right away?
Is it inconceivable that perhaps he just wasn't satisfied with the performance of the Salk Soundscapes, got buyer's remorse, found another pair of speakers that he liked better during the 9 months he waited for his order to be delivered, or that he simply just didn't like these speakers for whatever reason?
I know some people missed the cut-off date and had to pay $4,000 more for their Salk Soundscapes, but that doesn't mean that someone lucky enough to pay just $12,000 for a pair instead of $16,000 did it just to make a profit.
