Maybe the statement that he would not accept below $1025.00 included shipping. Some buyers ask for that to be "thrown in" to conclude the deal.
The shipping would cost more than the additional $25.00, so this constitutes the maximum discount he is willing to offer, regardless of where the speakers are shipped.
It is the only reasonable explanation unless as Garfish says, a "goofy" seller.
