    Default New from PA with reQuest ESL's

    hi everyone...

    i have inherited a complete (high end) audio system from my brother who passed away.
    it consists of a pair of ML reQuest ESL's (s/n's: REKE040 & 041), a pair of Rogue Audio M150 tube amps (s/n's: M150-0951 & 0952) and a Rogue Audio NinetyNine PreAmp (s/n: R99-0969).

    i remember loving the sound of this system and would visit him as often as possible (several times a week in fact).
    back in the day, i would even buy half-speed master LP's and keep them at his place just so i could enjoy them much better there rather than at my place...lol.

    everything is currently in temp controlled storage, as i do not have the proper place to set it up, and will probably, and sadly, wind up selling everything.
    i truly loved the sound for many many years, but with his passing, and my not having a place for this system, a new good home for it is what i hope for one of these days, i just can't get myself to get rid of it right now, but will (financially) need to soon, as the continuing burden of the storage facility is not something i want to continue for too long.

    if you have gotten this far reading, thank you for not falling asleep or dying of boredom...lol.

    Best regards,
    Jay

    Jay, that's a sadness. Not sure why you don't keep the system for yourself. Where in PA are you located?

    Jay, welcome to the fold, yes, it's a shame you can't somehow continue to enjoy the system in memory of your brother. This is coming from a Rogue fan as well.

    What you have is a nice bit of kit so you should not have an issue selling it even if you do so individually.

    Were you at the Eagles parade yesterday ?

    hi Twitch and thank you!
    i do wish that i had a room that i could dedicate to this awesome system, but alas, such is real life sometimes...lol.
    and, no, i wasnt at the parade, now, if the Steelers had gone to the SB and won, i would have driven out there for the parade...lol.

    thank you Tom, he was not only my brother, he was my best friend in the world.
    i already have a potential buyer for the amps, and he doesn't really want the reQuests but said he will "take them off of my hands as a favor"...lol, i would like to sell the reQuests separately at this point, but they are so big and heavy, it would have to be buyer pick up only...lol

    i had only talked about all that as my introduction to the forum, but if the current deal falls through, yes, i would then want the information in the classifieds, please hold off for now unless it is a problem.
