Design Acoustics PS 103???

I stopped by a local pawn shop and found a pair of Design Acoustic PS 103 for $60. Normally I shoot first and ask questions later but these suckers are big and don't want to get into something I might regret later. Lets assume the woofers will need a refoam. Are these worth the effort and expense?? They do look cool and appear to be well built (read hard to get into to check the drivers in the shop)

Ps-103

Great speakers you can replace the surrounds but i upgraded the woofer and midrange because they were made of inferior material .They were made so that the design would give off a fantastic sound without using higher end speakers . Hard to find info on extremely rare .There was a article in stereo review that raved about them retailed around $900 sold oak and on castors .

Let's hope for that pawn shop's sake that they've sold them since the post is over 3 years old!
