As a sort of bittersweet note, I agreed to sell nine of my Mackie C200 speakers today to a co-worker who's been telling me he wants to buy them for months.
He's been patiently waiting for me to make a decision on keeping the JBL or keeping the Mackie for nearly three months now.
Today he told me it was time to make a decision or he was going to use the 15% off ebay coupon and buy the speakers by EOD.
aghhh. My mentality was pretty much flip a coin. I like the JBL slightly better, my practical side said keep the Mackie.
In rarer form, my practical side bowed to whimsical side.
He picks them up Sunday.
$/performance - the Mackie C200 were off the chart, but I do like the JBL's sound a wee bit better, $3000 better? For a cheapskate like me? no.
But we all have our ways of justifying non-sensible purchases from time to time.
At any rate - I'm keeping the JBL CBT 70j-1's, so if you haven't heard them yet, you'll still have your chance.
I have four more Mackie C200 I need to sell, but I suspect I'll have no problem selling them on craigslist as they are a very popular entry/mid level Pro Audio speaker.
Now I just need to figure out how I'm going to mount them on the ceiling, and hook up the red AMC PRIME led lighting behind the tweeter arrays.
