    requires minor attention------ parts no longer avaiable

    genuine original------ outdated

    celebrity owned------ so I'm asking a grand more than it's worth

    single speaker------ where's the other one then?

    bargain------ but dearer than the other dozen on offer

    virtually unused------ nobody can figure out how it works

    job lot------ I do house clearance

    amazing------ pretty average

    sort after------ I can't spell and don't know what I'm talking about

    retro------ it has imitation wood on it

    pre owned------ he's probably a used car dealer

    amplifire------ I still can't spell

    vintage------ old and knackered

    you will not find better------ oh yes I will

    Maybe, but asking 650 for a pair of Goodmans Maxims is ludicrous (see his other items). There was a time when you couldn't even give the damn things away. They are not very good anyway.

    They're trying it on to see if they can benefit from the ludicrous prices that LS3/5As now fetch.

    Dominated by the Michelin tyre factory.

    I've been to Condom in France, but I didn't see a prophylactic factory there.
