    Hey guys; it looks like we are going to be moving at the end of May to our first house!!! Pretty excited, but I'm going to have to get rid of a few things in the process. If any of you are looking to beef up your home theater, this may be your chance. I'm located in Salt Lake City.

    I have a 65" Mitsubishi 65413 television, bought last July new that is in immaculate condition. Price new was $2950... I also got the extended warranty, 3 year I think. Here's some info on the TV:

    http://www.audioreview.com/televisio...7_2725crx.aspx

    I then hired Gregg Loewen, our very own reknown ISF certified calibrator to come and do a full calibration on the TV and install Duvetyne (keeps the internal reflections down and makes the colors and blacks more accurate). That cost me $700. The picture is absolutely stunning; I haven't seen a better picture anywhere. If you come demo it I'll knock your socks off. ;-)

    I'm thinking of asking $2250/obo; Is that a fair price?

    Secondly, I have a full 7.1 Dahlquist speaker system that I'll also be selling. The new Dahlquist series is very comparable to the Paradigm Studio series, but at a more reasonable price. They have a great top end without being bright, liquid mids, and bass down to sub 30hz. These are fantastic speakers compared to ANY.

    Here's some info on them:

    http://audioshop.on.ca/dahlquist.htm

    I have 4 of the QX10 towers (flagship speaker for Dahlquist) that sell right now for $1299/pr.

    I have 1 QX60C (flagship center) that sells right now for $499.

    And I have 2 QX4 rear effects speakers that sell right now for $299.

    The speakers are in immaculate condition, and have only been driven high current amplification and a quality front end (Aragon 8008x amps, Anthem D1 processor, Jolida JD100 CDP and Denon DVD-2900).

    If you bought them right now they'd cost you a little over $2800.00 USD

    Here is a review that can tell you a little more about their sound:

    I'm thinking of asking $2k/obo for the full system.

    Let me know if I'm pricing them correctly, or if you are interested.

    Thanks!

    Hi Kincade,
    I am interested in the 65" Mistu, but two things: 1) I am live on Long Island in NY and I am not sure if your interested in shipping this and secondly you'd have to come down a lot on the price to make it personally worth it to me based on the price of brand new models I can get locally. So between the shipping and the pricing I am not sure its feasable for either of us but just wanted to let you know I was at least interested in case it is....
    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Kevin,

    I'm happy to talk about it, and I can work on the price; but keep in mind it has been ISF'd... The convergence will probably have to be reset after shipping.

    Is the convergence easily readjusted? The shipping won't wipe out the ISFing will it?

    Convergence is easily adjusted; the shipping shouldn't wipe out anything but the convergence AFAIK.
