I'm kind of leary to spend almost $2000 from some guy online that's in another state but it's such a great deal!

What do you all think about spending large amounts of $$$$ on eBay?

Oh, & no I won't say what it is until after I decide if I'm going to buy it so Kenny won't out bid me!!
I bought my Panasonic PT- AE700U from Ebay and never regretted it! It has served me very well. I also bought my replacement tweeters for my Snell E-II's on Ebay - these tweeters are very rare and difficult to find (the closest thing to it is a tweeter made for Audio Note). I've bought computer parts and HT gear from Ebay and sold it also. I've sold Klipsch Heresy's on Ebay, Rare JBL's (still a vintage man), my old Fosgate 3A years ago, a Nak Tape deck (the model under the Dragon). I was surprised at how much I got for the stuff!!!! I made over 10 times (not percent) the amount I paid for the Klipsch speakers. I love ebay and you are wise not to tell anyone what it is - especially if they might out bid you ! I also love www.audiogon.com and www.videogon.com!
