Grass IS greener right here:
I have been looking for a second set of 'cheap' ($200used) speaker just for whatever... So I was looking diligently every day in AudiogoN for weeks (why I have been back in the forums...) So many of the items now remind me of E-Bay... overpriced.
I was doodling around and just by accident I saw a web page of a local dealer with some Magnepan MG-IIb for $200.
I was like WOW... So I ran over there this morning a grabbed them instantly! They even had new screens!
The moral of this post is (even though I have purchased some really nice stuff on the "Agon, sometimes a great deal can be found right at home!!!
