    I happen to ran into a pair of used Nautilus 803 speakers (cherry color). They were purchased last January 2003 (approximately 7 months old). Condition seems flawless but the owner doesn't have the original box.

    Can anyone share the current market value for 803's used with similar condition outline above? The owner is asking for approx $2700. Is that a good buy? In my country that is approximately 30% discounted from purchased price (which is 15% discounted from SRP).

    In addition... what are good ways of checking out used speakers? Just want to make sure that he is not selling off a lemon. :)

    Sounds like a reasonable price if thats £'s and not $'s(an even better price if it's $'S),as the full new price would be about £3500.

    The only way to be sure about the speakers condition is to inspect them yourself,then hear them actually playing some music...listen to each drive unit in turn,and be sure everything works as it should.
    On the plus side,if there are any faults,this is a current model,so spares/repairs are not a problem...please note however that B&W's 5yr warranty only applies to the original owner.
