    My current computer room setup contains a pair of AR-S50s as mains, a pair of AR-208Vs as rears, and an AR-C225PS center channel.
    I have a single EXTRA AR-S50 speaker, its twin is now somewhere in the long lost void. Here's a link to the speaker:http://www.acoustic-research.com/s50_content.asp
    I can't find a single place that sells them, and it is a discontinued product [​IMG]
    Now, what in the world should I do with it??
    I don't think anybody wants to buy it, it's too big to use as a center (I think?), and I don't have rear center support in my system.
    My other option is to see if somebody wants to buy my mains and this extra speaker for a backup, but I don't know anybody that wants to do that...soo....ideas anyone? Or does anybody have some magical source for that single extra AR-S50?
    EDIT: btw, it's still in its original packaging unopened, and its only use right now is being a stand for my left rear channel [​IMG]

    Have you tried contacting AR directly? I'm sure they'll know where to find one...or maybe someone who wants just one.

    i vote you set it on fire and drop it off a high building or cliff. just make sure you record anything with a camcorder and post it on the internet

    hey, you asked...

    Well, sort of, I asked accessories4less, and they pretty much buy all AR stock when they're discontinued. They asked AR and found that they couldn't get a hold of any...so no luck there [​IMG]

    Tempting as that might sound, I think ejecting it full of fireworks from a human canonball launcher would look better [​IMG]
