It's a decent buy. No huge savings from market value of a used set, but a lot of speaker for the cash.

that's why you won the bid... because you placed a high bid. people were like... "that dude is a fvcken idiot, i aint paying more than $250.00". i bet buddy who put those utopia's on ebay is high-fiveing his boyz right now. :yumyum:

I would have too, if I had the money, but I would have got a hooker to wear them like a bathing suit so I could have an even better reason to ********** to them for. :fyi:

you got hosed IMO.........comps that are like 5 years old
are usually shot from weather.......Id rather buy a set of new
comps at that price.........

Well, considering what those components used to go for just a year or two ago. I don't think the set is more than about 2 years old. You got a good price for some great components, you should be happy with your purchase and let the people that are jealous do their thing. :)

People are so angry all the time. I personally never buy used, but as far as speakers go, those are nice ones for the money.

I can tell you that those that are hating are the ones that basicall wish they whad either the funds to spend on a nice set of comps, or they don't have enought of an ear to reolize that a used set of highend comps is still better than the Kraco/motorola wantabe comp set they are running. You did fine, I don't think you got a stellar deal, but you didn't get ripped by any means.

While I consider the Focal Utopia's to be nice components you are probably paying $200 for the components and the other $150 for name recognition.

They will sound superb and are better than at least 75-80% of the crap out there today. With the focus on SPL these days the number of companies making top notch component sets has dwindled to about a handful.

Most of all enjoy!

Those are nice comps used or not you did good!! That's how I used to piece together my systems when I was on a serious budget. Good snag!! I could've got ya CDT HD's new though for less cash!! Unfortunately I wasn't around.
