What is a lowball offer? How low is low?
I'm not sure I agree with many of the responders.There is such a thing as the "blue book".  just like other blue books out there, one can find the high, low and average sale prices of items.This gives a very good idea of what items are worth and w... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I'm also of the opinion that the Audio Research 160 amps may not have enough juice for the Martin Logan Speakers.  I was thinking that you would get the Audio Research REF 250 SE amps, which work quite nicely with the Neoliths.I've mentioned this ...

Not Enjoying My Turntable
