Did you try listing them here ? I've bought a few things on this site for under $100 for other systems. Give it a try ... there's often a buyer for anything, and there's nothing better than recycling.

Yes defintely give them to me!No I am undeserving.I understand whatyour dillema is.When a speaker is that old what would they sound like when surround crumbles and OEM won't re-cone them and if they did would it be worth it?I know some folks who have had good luck either with kits or having a serviuce insatll generic replacement drivers but with these youmight wan't to give them to your niece to take to school since you'd be disapointed with any repairs.I worked in HIfi shop and it was kind of sad when folks got used to a pice of wquipment slowly failing and didn't even know "buzzing" or other horrible sound WASN'T supposed to be there.But if we could successfully rrpair or replace with new speakers that was nice.Like I said I have empathy since I have thought the same way about stuff where it was a dillema of what to do.
I pulled them out today and replaced them with the 602's. Now they are sitting in my spare bedroom along with an old Yamaha center and a POS sub. I will post them as a package deal - but at my office, not here.
Shipping for them would be a killer.
Froma few old aucitons on e-bay and from prior auctions on other sites, it appears that they are worth ~$150 with the center and the sub, I'll ask $200 at the office and take $100-150.
Damn... I do feel bad about letting them go. They served me well for over 15 years. I had them in 6 houses across 6 states. Oh well.
Again, Thank you. If anyone is near New Haven CT, send me an e-mail otherwise I'll keep looking here for a used Rotel 1077... that's the next purchase in a long series. :-)
