    I thought so you see the odd pair of those come up but these were the only v1s I've ever seen. I've seen the SD2 v1 maybe twice in the 15 years or so I've been looking out for speakers.

    Vintage 4" full-range speakers, NOS boxed! Eagle FR4, actually made by Coral and rather nice quality, fabric roll cone surrounds and beefy magnets.

    I've owned a couple of pairs in the past and they're decent little units, ideal for a compact horn system.

    I may be several years late in making this point. Anyway, I don't sell items regularly on eBay but I have a 100% record on more than 50 sales I've made, including quite a few items worth £100-£500 (I have a track record of several hundred purchases also). However eBay is now holding on to any sale proceeds I might make for two weeks after the transaction due to me being an "infrequent seller". Apparently this is to ensure great service to buyers and allow time for any disputes to be resolved. But to me it sucks. And why they didn't do this in the early days when it was like the wild west with so-called sellers who had minimal track record ripping people off I don't know (well, I do, their priority was to grow the business).

    Back in the day part of the appeal of eBay was that it was a bit of fun. I guess all these businesses push their models to see how far they can go until there's a tilt point where customers walk. Anyway, I'm now researching alternatives (yep, I know there's an option here, although the next thing I'm hoping to sell is fishing tackle so it's probably not appropriate).

    Ebay think they've cornered the market and so they've got too big for their boots. We need to make a concerted effort to show 'em they're wrong.
