    Who owes who money

    A friend of mine has mint Reference 1.8's in Rosewood. I have mint Strata Mini's in piano black. We're thinking about "trading" . . . is that an even trade? Or does one of us owe the other money to boot??

    Seriously, wow - glad I asked. So, what do your think a good price would for each?? I was thinking $750 for his and $900 for mine - it appears I've under calculated the worth of my mini's. Appreciate it. thanks.

    IMHO- Minis - PB $ 975-1100
    1.8 - Rosewood (not Piano) $600-675

    I just bought some Ref 2s and really love them. Use a Emotiva RPA-2 to drive them...but....I love my minis better with a tube amp combo...

    Have you heard the 1.8s?

    Yup. Have heard 1.8's. Think I prefer the mini's. Just that if I put my Quads with main system - second system doesn't have room for mini's (wife doesn't like them upstairs) . . . 1.8's would be better. But also, have quotes coming on GR N3's. If I buy the N3's I'll sell Mini's to friend and he'll just have to list his 1.8's for sale. What I really should do is keep Mini's with tubes, place Quads upstairs in living room (they ARE beautiful) and just sell my Reference 1.0's That would be the smartest thing to do.

    You could use the cash difference to put Ninja Master crossovers in the 1.8's. Smile

    The Ref 1.8 doesn't come up for sale often and because of that fact, might be worth even a bit more than the Ref 2...or in that ballpark area. $600-800.

    Minis have been as low as $700 and upto about $1,200. You have a premium finish which adds a bit to the value and he does not.

    Personally, I say just go with N3s which are fantastic and will be a good step up. Ninja Master Crossovers would cost a good portion of the price you'd pay for a set of N3.
