Ok, so I bid on a ML Grotto subwoofer on e-bay. My max bid was $450.00 and even though I won the reserve was not met. Oh well, I say. The next day I get a e-mail from the seller asking if I was still interested in the sub. I e-mail him back and tell him to call me. So he calls and tells me he would sell it to me for $500.00 + shipping. I say sure so I give him my cc number and told him to e-mail me the total cost. 2 days later he e-mails me a tracking number and a total cost of $600.00. I am thinking it will not cost $100.00 to ship from Minnesota to Chicago. Oh well so he is making a little money on shipping (still a great deal). Today I get the sub and I go to lift the box and I almost wrench my back. I am thinking why is a 40 lb Grotto so heavy? I open the box and remove the bubble wrap to find a not a Grotto but a Depth. Bonus!!!

Hey if thats what you do and are into it who are we to judge. A great deal is a great deal. I feel like one of the people on the Antique Road Show when you think you have some thing worth $100.00 and they tell you its worth $25,000.00 or something like that. What a great feeling.
