    Dear Fellow AKers,

    I am hoping to complete a deal on a monster receiver with a fellow AK member, and the seller is in the Chicago area and I am in north central MA. Can certainly meet within a couple of hours.

    Thanks and happy holidays, Mike

    Don't know if this is helpful, I get to Chicago area and will be going up there probably around Christmas.
    I'm in Columbus, if something can be worked out to meet in Cleveland area I could go east then home to Columbus.
    I could make it to western PA too.
    Let me know

    If you ever get them to the NYC or Philadelphia, there are a few of us who travel regularly to the Hartford area. That would certainly be within a few hours of you.

    I've driven from Columbus to Philadelphia and back, what should have been an 8-9 hour trip was 11 due to bad weather.
    By Christmas is the target?

    Hey Geoff,

    It's an Onkyo TX 8500 II. It's in beautiful shape. Can't wait to hook it up. Got some ADS 910s arriving at the same time. Should be a good combo.
