It's easy to be patient when you are (slowly) building a theater. If I buy things now I would be taking away from my build funds and there is always something better and cheaper just around the corner. Also, there is no way I could fit seven of those towers into my room. There’s just no way no how. It's not going to happen. Real wood veneers or not. They are just too big. I am not even sure where I would keep them while I finish my room.
We all know that I enjoy the sweet sounds from the JTR line and I'm pretty sure that is what I will be placing in my room. So as long a Jeff stays in business then I don't need to worry about where my next set of speakers will coming from.
Now if there was a really good deal on a high end sub, I might be interested. But there is no reason to upgrade my speakers until the new theater is finished.
Also, your logic about selling them on craigslist if VERY flawed. First nobody wants towers anymore. Ok a few people do but they are not the ones that buy stuff from CL. Second who do I sell 7 of these to? Sure I could sell two, maybe even four, but there are only a few people that have the room to use a tower for a center and we know most of them because of AVS.
Now, don't get me wrong. Almost all you guys have better setups then I do. However, I when commit to buying something I try to buy for the long haul. Yes, the Polks are a good deal. But short term gain is not really my style. My SVS is showing some real value at this point. Since, knowing you, you have owned 3 different sets of mains. Knowing my speakers limitations I have been pretty happy with them over the years. I am also about to get into REW to see if I can get more performance out of them and my room.
I was going to say that if you really wanted to get me a christmas gift this year... However, I still couldn't use these.
Now before everyone starts thinking we are attacking each other. Please take both of our post with a grain of salt.
