    I'd buy that for a dollar (how come it's not $1?).

    The new "make offer" ebay "feature" allows the seller to set a threshold for offers to be responded to. For example, this guy might set a threshold for $1600 before he responds to offers. If it's below that threshold, the buyer doesn't even see the offer.

    So I wouldn't be offended the seller isn't responding. You probably just came in below his offer threshold :p.

    Good to know. I've always wondered why some sellers didn't respond to a BO. (y)

    Not a Craigslist find, but I did find this at a Estate sale for $10.



    What do you guys think and is it worth it?

    Do you think it will be better than the onboard on my MSI z87-GD65?

    Definitely worth $10. THX certification isn't easy, even today.

    Not Craigslist but still, I had to come to gloat. I snagged a pair of nearly mint B&W DM601 series 2 for *drumroll please* $29.99 at my local Goodwill today.

    Having been to different Goodwill stores in WI I realize they're not all the same, so for reference the ones by me are basically a thrift store for donated "stuff" - and 9 times out of 10 the employees either don't know or don't care what something is worth. Over the years I've found tons of ridiculous deals - bought a Tech21 SansAmp Para Driver for $1, a Technivorm MoccaMaster for $4.99, and a Mont Blanc 149 for $74.99 (maybe not an "AMAZING" deal but still pretty damn good.)

    Only been A/B testing with these speakers for half an hour or so, but it's already pretty clear these are a solid upgrade from my old Klipsch RB-5s. I'll be hitting the same store up again tomorrow to see if any other nice audio equipment got donated.

    Nice! I miss my Deerfield, IL Goodwill as it was the same--lots of higher end stuff dirt cheap because they had to move it. Finding thrift stores in affluent areas definitely leads to better deals, but sometimes just overpriced stuff.

    NICE!
    I have found some sick stuff at GW. A few great speaker sets, turntable, pc and networking stuff. Hit or miss but you go all the time and nab the good stuff. GRATS!
    B&W makes some really great stuff.
