I figured for that price I could take a chance on them being crap. Got them home and inspected them and discovered that they arent crap at all, theyre Infinity Crescendo CS 3009s from the mid-90s. The drivers are in good shape, just need some refoaming. I set them up in my living room and moved my two channel system in there. I pulled out my Onkyo HT receiver to drive them as it was the only thing powerful enough for them. They sound excellent, with high quality ribbon tweeters and two 10 bass drivers.




Now I just need to upgrade my turntable, DAC, and probably the amp and Ill be set.
Congrats!

I have a similar find for an old pair of DBX Soundview V's. I bid on a subwoofer for $1 on an online auction with a pickup about 30mins from my house, these were a throw in, no one wanted them my $1 bid was enough.

I got them home, threw them in my garage and they blew me away. I made room in my basement set up and they continue to astound me, apparently back in the day sometime in the 70s when these were originally bought they went for $2k-$3k, they got a bad rep from a lot of folks I think as the original company was bought out and they thought these models were overpriced.

For me, they are one of my greatest $1 finds, nothing like slapping on some old classic rock on vinyl cranking through these bad boys.

btw, I never connected the subwoofer so no idea if it's any good.

Yeah, I missed out on the color variant, too -- got the regular one via the preorder that ended at the tail end of September. It was about $30 shipped from Denmark, so no VAT for me.

Amazon -- Newbury's was priced higher. I lucked out and Amazon lowered it to $14 and change, so that locked me in for the lowest price.

Oh right! Forgot that VAT gets taken off at the end. I'll have to order that soon.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Thats very horror movie!! Haha

Got my Terrortron in and its fantastic! Real good release and pressed real well. I am happy! I also got ALLLLLLLLLL those other releases I ordered in. I had to buy new shelves for all that my collection has been growing. The crazy thing is these two shelves that will old 300 records combined, was cheaper than buying two soundtracks on Waxwork Records..... shit.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I did not know Tim C. from Prophets of Rage and RATM started a couple of side projects -- I ordered the vinyl for:



It was only $7 shipped via Discogs.


I watched the videos and listened to the tunes and I like what heard/saw.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Here are the releases for next month's Black Friday Record Store Day.

Nothing I'm particularly interested in. Last year there were at least 5 releases I wanted (and got).

Yeah not much for me. I will probably go for the doors release and that’s it. Maybe Neil Young.

Yeah, not much. Of slight interest might be the Waylon Jennings new material and The Turtles mono.

I'm mildly interested in Chuck Berry and that Game of Thrones picture disc looks hot but I'd probably never listen to it. Not really enough to draw me into stores.
