Can't do a link but if you check pfm classifieds a dealer is selling a new pair of atc scm 40 at 2.5k which is probably the months best bargain . I know lots like atc on here  (private classifieds)

too good to be true ? Go in person and see them, pay by credit card, etc.

Always good to be careful but he has been a member of pfm for 10 years so fairly safe I would say

To me people now seem to be expecting much higher second hand values than they used to. Obviously age and condition are relevant but I used to think (and pay) more in the region of a third to a half of retail. The seller may simply have what to me are more realistic ideas of what second hand speakers should be valued at.

Except these are not second hand. They are new in an unopened box and being sold by a dealer. They are an exceptional bargain and should soon be snapped up.

that is typically the advertised price of a used pair.  Does seem a good deal. Why cant he sell them at pukka price ?  Not white black or grey ???

Where are they >?  Spain ?

Am I missing something here? There's a pair in the classifieds here for less and an ex-demo par on t'Internet for not much more, so this doesn't look like somehow 'too cheap'.

Assuming the same model, etc. I don't see any particlar benefit in new speakers compared with lightly used equivalents in unmarked condition. All you're doing is paying more for the pain of having to break them in.

Apart from the fact that one pair are in Spain and are boxed and new,  and the other pair are in Aylesbury and used, they're the same pair.  :/

Alice in Wonderland strikes again.
