Pioneer HPM-40 speakers

I found a pair for $150. I'm told they work, no issues although the cabinets have a few scratches. Of course I will make sure they work, but...

Worth the money?

You may think so, but I say no. You're in HPM-100 territory at that price. I liked the 40's I had briefly, but I sold them for $60. I apparently undercut myself a bit, but I wanted my money back so I could put it to work on something else. I think if you really *need* speakers, try to get them for maybe half that. Still not a great deal, but you could do worse. If you can wait, wait. You can get much better for $150.

I suspect this thread will moved shortly...

But to answer your question, IMO, no.

I'd rather buy Klipsch Icon, KG 3.5 or Quintets for 130$.
