    Magnepan Tympanis?
    I apparently have a chance to acquire a pair of Magnepan Tympani speakers (don't know which version) for free. The guy (local) I'm getting them from got them for $10, when purchasing a bunch of other relatively high-end vintage gear for resale on Ebay. He has no room to set them up to test, so he doesn't want to try to sell them on Ebay (not to mention shipping issues due to size). He just wants to unload them to free up space in his storage locker. He says they are in good cosmetic condition, but knows nothing else about them. I'm assuming they'll need some type of refurbishing/repair. Is this doable by the average "handyman" such as myself? Any idea if it would be expensive? Thanks for any insight offered!:cornut:

    Maggies can easily be fixed with glue :-)

    Grab them and then buy a ton of amps to drive them :cornut:

    Thanks for the reply, Florian! Glue (and time), I can afford. Someone has pointed me to a website explaining the repair process. Although I emailed the owner telling him I was interested on the 17th. Still haven't heard back from him. He may have changed his mind, for all I know...:confused5:
