Hello, I thought this might be a fun exercise. I'm looking to sell my Marantz 2245 pictured below. I have an asking price of $575 on CL locally. I got offered a trade for some Thiel 3.5s. Owner has no idea what year. They are the version with the external bass cross-over. They could be as old as 1989 from what I've read so far. I don't need speakers but I'm growing increasingly anxious to try a new pair from my B&W CDM 7se's. After comparing, either the Thiels or the B&W's will be hitting the road. The Marantz is sexy, but my Yamaha A-s801 sounds better.
