Is it one of those brands whose retail prices you're expected to wangle for at least 40% off for ?

Every time I see Dynaudio the price is usually high.

I think what's going on is while it's on the 'low end of the high end' there is a certain preconceived notion that even used it should sell for 60-70% of msrp. When in reality 50% is much more realistic and that'a when it's a '8 out of 10' or better !

At the most 33% of what the asking price is on a used market

I don't think so, as I said to Pogre it's the 'low end of the high end' so with that being said anytime one can do 20% on what is considered 'high end' off msrp new you're feeling good about yourself. But when it comes to used, to which over the years I've bought several items, I've never paid more than 50% of msrp for anything.

I rarely shop for things with msrp particularly in mind except as information to start, let alone for audio gear in a b&m store at msrp....but seems the margins definitely leave room for negotiation from such an msrp in such a joint.

I think sometimes people post things on Craigslist who will sell and upgrade if they get enough .... Then those that want to sell to get the stuff out of their house. Good to find the latter.

I never want to pay more than half of new price for used as there is risk.

To me half price is a good starting point if its relatively new. Old used audio gear is largely only attractive if reasonably priced....

Anyone runs into a Carver TFM amp in good condition let me know or post up, 25 or 35 would do yeah I know they are very old but some do show up on Ebay.

Fixed it. Hey HD, what do you know about Triad speakers? Any experience with them?
Triad makes excellent speakers, but is only available through CEDIA installers. I've been a happy Triad customer since the early days. My family room is a 5.1 setup with Triad Silver Monitors for the L, C & R, Triad Gold bipoles for the surrounds and a Triad Gold Sub. Pre-pro is Marantz with Adcom amplification. It can shake the walls, yet satisfy an audiophile for critical listening.

My two-channel critical listening setup has Triad Gold Monitors and dual Von Schwekert subs with a Parasound preamp and amplifier. Sound is amazing, but I think the Golds will be replaced by my recent Magnepan 1.7 acquisition.

My wife would kill me if I tried to put something like that in my house. I see a lot of the classic "Vintage speakers" with the 15 inch woofers that would probably be pretty awesome actually driven with a strong AMP. But they are so big and don't look great. They just aren't practical for a living room these days.
Your wife would hate me... lol
