    Have you checked Ebay/Audiogon. These are going to be hard to find but you might be able to find them.

    Scott,

    When I was looking for the AR2C Terence was my knight in shining armor. Hopefully he'll be able to rescue you as well. [​IMG]


    P.S.- I couldn't sympathize more with you. Two and a half months ago I was standing right where you are now - a pair
    of AR1's and desperately seeking an AR2C center channel. At the time I was using a -ahem- Bose VCS10 center channel, and a pair of Sony SS-SR11 speakers for the rears.

    It all unexpectantly came together one day right here on
    this forum - Terence informed me on where I could find an AR2C, and another HTF member named Yousaf mentioned that he was looking to sell his pair of AR15's.

    Fate?, or dumbluck?, I don't know and I don't care, all I know is that now I'm in AR Hi-Res heaven. I gotta give another big ass "THANK YOU" to Terence and Yousaf for helping make my sonic dreams a reality. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    By the way Scott, everyone is right on the money about Ebay, early last month there was an assortment of AR Hi-Res speakers for sale, but being as highly sought after as they are they don't remain unsold for very long; as such it would be in your best interest to check daily if at all possible. Good luck.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Scott why do you want the ar15's and not the ar17's?

    You could always post a wanted add on Audiogon....or go here and post an ad http://s1.amazon.com/exec/varzea/pre...826561-8394306

    Terence....what's new...well moved into the house at the end of july so had to set everything up...check out my pics...will be getting a Front Projector instead of a RPTV...reason being TV might not make it into the basement.

    Scott best of luck on the AR HI Res stuff...I know I love my stuff....

    Terence,

    Not much new on the new speaker project. I am waiting for
    John Janowitz to finish up the design and he's almost there!

    Now all I need to do is come up with $1240.00 to buy all
    the raw drivers! (24 7" Mids, 24 Ribbon Tweeters, 1 AV12
    and crossover parts)

    I figure $2500.00 total to finish the project and have a
    set of speakers that anything 40+K should compete with [​IMG]

    Ohh yeah and still working on my audio rack.. I just got
    back the aluminum I gave to my friend. He machined out all
    of the rings for me. He's working on drilling the long
    holes through the oak beams (ruined 3 pieces so far) I sure
    hope he don't ruin any more considering I already spent
    $78.00 on just the oak!


    Ohh yeah I got myself a new Digicam too.. Here's a pic
    taken with it [​IMG]

    Just click on the link.. I don't want to clog up Scott's
    thread with a huge picture... But it sure is a pretty
    picture! [​IMG]

    Do you guys know if the newer ARs sound anything as good as the old school (80's) 58b, 8, 9's? Is the sound character similar? I thought that they went to pot, but it seems as if they're going through a revival of quality and it would be great. I loved my 58's (enough to replace all the damn drivers and crossover after frying them enough from not having enough power (crappy Proton receiver))
