Ok,

I was bored and didn't have anything better to do so I emailed the poster about the price.

Yep, thats what they are asking :shock: . Said they were very nice speakers.

The kicker was. It was a girl's email address.

If somebody is really, really hot for 'em, they're like around the corner from me. I'd be glad to run by and check 'em out for ya'. But only if your really serious about them! ...or she sounds like a particularly hot chick!! [-X

They are worth no more than $1,400.00 - $1,600.00 in that condition. The seller will never get rid of them at that price or anywhere near it. Hell, a brand new, in the box, never been used set of Plat's were offered to me for $2400.00 LESS that this cat is asking.
