The Goodwill's around my house are TERRIBLE for electronics. They must have people checking every day or getting tipped of. I have been using them a bit for CD's though. $2 each. It's kind of fun to go buy a CD for the cost of a Soda and have something to listen to. Usually older stuff I like.
Goodwill is good for almost nothing in my area, not just electronics. Half Price Books is the other place I go to, but not too often.

Jbl lsr310 for $190 and in "acceptable" condition with a free return at Amazon. Any thoughts? Almost bought it but was thinking wait till the end of year sale for $300.

Well... depends on what "acceptable" is. For $190 used I would expect them to be in pretty good shape. Maybe a light scuff or so from normal usage. If they're all chipped and scratched up I'd prolly pass.

Cosmetics I'm not so concerned about but major dings.

Now this... is pretty interesting, but seems a bit overpriced? I dunno, I forget what they retailed for but I know they're pretty awesome subs. A pair of PC13 Ultras for $1600.

*PS, damned misleading ads! One is an Ultra and the other is.. ? "Older but matches well". C'mon man. That's bullshit.

Sterling speakers without rotted foams would be OK ... I would skip the sat-20 and Polk center

I didn't know that Sherwood was still in business. Electronics For Less shows 2-channel and 4-channel receivers for audio only but nothing in stock.
