CARVER AMAZING LOUDSPEAKERS IN CHARLOTTE , NC

I FOUND A GUY IN NC TRYING TO SELL HIS AMAZINGS FOR $2000.00...(NOT PLATINUIMS!)
SO, WHY AM I GETTING OFFERS FOR $600.OO?
WHEN I'M ASKING $1200.00 FOR PIANO BLACK, GOOD/EXCELLENT CONDITION?
IS HE KIDDING? OR AM I CRAZY?

...and $1200 is on the high end of the usual value of a pair of Original Amazings....they do look great, though. =D>

Re: CARVER AMAZING LOUDSPEAKERS IN CHARLOTTE , NC

Ya' see, the thing is.....I bought and sold a pair of original Amazings for $500.00 a couple of year's back. As far as the condition? 1 woofer was bad and they were in pretty damned good shape. Not mint, mind you, but about the best kind of shape you could find a pair of these at for being almost a 20 year old speaker.

That said, on the flipside......I had an offer to purchase a brand new - out of the box set of Platinum's - for the price of $1600.00 a year or two later. Yeah, 2K is way out there for a used set of Amazings...

I think you are getting on the right track though. That said, are they Silver 7's or Silver 7t's?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

$1500 won't buy the tubes for a pair of Silver Sevens. Whatever you're smoking.
