What I see quite a lot in thrift stores is mid-fi older HT receivers for dirt. In fact, there was a 7.1 Onkyo TX-something and a Denon (can't remember the model) sitting in a pile in one such place I went to a few weeks back. 20 bucks each.\n\nI can't find anything but junk in my local thrift shops. I still look tho. I keep at it, hoping I'll find that unicorn. I'd love to find what you'd consider a good deal for sure, but it won't happen if I don't look.\n\nYou know, I thought about it, and you might not have been far off the mark afterall. I DO hope someone pops in and says "ZOMGZORS! Those are over90000 speakers and you need to go get 'em now!". Yeah. That is the reason I started this. I'm very enthusiastic about this hobby, particularly speakers, but there sure are a lot out there that I've never seen nor heard of before. If I find something that looks cool, but know nothing about it what better place to post a couple of pics and ask questions?\n\nI have found a couple of gems. Those ten dollar IL40s are legit very good speakers, even still today. The whole series is known for their neutrality and clarity. I'd never seen them before. My main speakers are nicer and newer, but I just love those ILs and drag them out every once in a while and listen to them. My whole main system is based around a Craigslist find right now. When I found those Sierra 2s several people jumped and said "ZOMGZORS! You need to go get those right now!".\n\nI think Zilla seeing the RBH sub I found was one of my favorite reactions tho...\n\nBruh all I know is if you don't get that RBH I'm driving all the way down they're and buying it out from underneath your nose. It'll go perfect with the other 2 I already own and that's a stupidly insane value for that sub. They are the BEST SUBS I've ever had only thing better is JTR or above or extreme DIY where you can get that 10hz or lower brown note performance if you really want to chase that. I don't care about below 16 Hz and those RBH are really out of the world from 16 on up\n\nCrazy good deals are definitely subjective in the end. I can say that I'm sufficiently blown away by that sub, but I never would have gotten one at full retail. Just no way. Zilla jumping in there gave me a nudge to at least go check it out. I'm glad I did. Even at $900 it wasn't cheap and I might have passed. I'm glad I didn't. I absolutely love it and it really does elevate my experience. I'm using it nearfield and getting a lot more tactile bass than I was before.
