Thank you ebay.   I was stressing over the cost of the Solo be monitors buying them new.  This week, I noticed a pair for sale just next door in Belmont, MA - actually just a few blocks from where I work.    They were 3 years old and in perfect condition.

Gender difference alert:  Here is where most guys would brag about how much money they just saved! Yes, spending 1800 bucks for speakers is "saving money" alright.

Anyway, I'm worth it.
