    Hey guys, I was just wondering if it'd be worth it to sell my silver JBL Creature II Speakers on eBay since I just figured out how to hook my Mac Mini up to my surround sound system.

    They are in perfect condition, but without the original box. How much do you think I'd get on eBay for these pups? Thanks.

    I tried to sell some on here, and didnt even get a response. although I would assume you could get 50-60 for them if you put them on ebay.

    i'll buy 'em!
    (for a reasonable price)

    anyone know if these are as good as harman kardon soundsticks?
    i wish they didn't look so weird, and the sattelite speakers look pretty small.
    still, a deal is a deal!

    Sorry, I just put them up on eBay for a great price! It'll be up in a little while. Just search JBL Creature II Speakers Silver and you will see my listing. My eBay username is alisoneliz.

    Edit -- As a matter of fact, my auction just showed up a few seconds ago! I dunno' if I'm allowed to do this, but click here to view my auction. I tried to be as reasonable as possible.

    Soundsticks are definately better, but retail for $70 more (i think that price difference is accurate...)

    I have the same exact speakers. And i LOVE them. They sound great. Only thing I don't like is that the cords are like 15 feet long, and it sits like 3 feet from my computer, alot of cord to hide ;)

    Interesting... The soundstick cables are too short IMO

    I'm not trying to ruin anything... I thought that qualifying the soundsticks as more expensive might explain the difference in quality that i percieve.

    ...sorry!

    They are in perfect condition! I keep all my electronics in tip top shape just in case I have to sell them in the future (as you can tell from the pics).

    If anybody else wants Creatures, I'm selling my white ones. They're in excellent condition, in the box, with all the appropriate manuals and wires. They don't even look used at all. I'm asking $50 OBO. They'd be shipped from New York.

    Please help me fund my Disney World annual pass renewal. :p :D

    I purchased the 2.1 klipsch promedia speakers on ebay for around $50. There seem to plenty around that price...

    I don't think the creature, or soundstick speakers can touch the sound quality of the promedia speakers... :) :eek:

    Its more of the "look" type of a deal for Creatures and Sound Sticks.

    indeed, i was rather unimpressed by the sound quality of the creature speakers, not sure about the sound sticks. They do look dam good though!
