It's been a while but the upgrading process has started again.

I'm selling some of my very-well-cared-for Meridian equipment.

Here is a pair of 8000.1 in black in true 9/10 mint condition. There are no scratches, chips, swirls, etc. They are in perfect functional and physical condition. They come from a smoke-pet-child-adult-who-see-with-their-hand-free home.

The asking price is $15,000.00. If you are an HH member that price gets discounted.

THESE ARE FULLY UPGRADEABLE TO 8000SE Status.

I have a set of boxes (not original) and all packaging material.

I can send more hi-res photos if you'd like to see more photos

They weigh a lot and must be put on a pallet. Expect $500-$1,500 for secure/safe shipping with insurance. I will knock $500 off the price if you pick up the speakers.

Please see my 20 years of feedback on eBay, Audiogon, and here on HH. I have a pristine reputation/track record for always delivering what's promised and packing everything for safe delivery exactly as promised.

The speakers are listed in audiogon here: Agon Listing DSP8000.1

Hitchhiker Member Discount: I will deduct $500 from the price if you are a member here for 6 months or more and I will deduct $1000 from the price if you are a member here for more than 5 years.

While unboxing to get the serial numbers, I discovered that one speaker has a dime-sized chip near the electronics on the back of the speaker towards the bottom.

I have updated the agon listing and have dropped the price by another $1000 to reflect the small blemish. In the past, I've had piano repairmen fix the black lacquer of other speakers to absolute perfection (mint-as-new) for anywhere from $125 to $500 depending on size of blemish and how far they had to travel to come to my home.

So basically this means that any HH member who picks these speakers up can take them off my hands for $12,000. Which is probably the lowest price for 8000.1 that I've seen ever (from a legitimate source).

So for $12,000 plus 500 lacquer repair plus $15,000 to upgrade to SE status, someone gets a pair of absolutely mint 8000SE for $27,500 instead of the $85,000 MSRP of new ones (minus those clamping rings smile
