should i?

i found a local craigslist ad for a pair of ns-10m's and a crown amp for under $500. i know the love/hate feelings a lot of people have towards these monitors, but i've spent a lot of time behind them and feel comfortable tracking/mixing with them. i currently have behringer truth's in my project studio () and pretty much anything would be an upgrade, but what do you guys think? is this a good enough deal to hop on it?

People don't buy the NS-10's because they are an "upgrade" or because they "sound good."

For that price...granted they are in good condition...that's not a bad price. But I wouldn't rely on them for their "accuracy."

If you only had 1 option...I'd look into getting something that you can rely on as your primary pair...the NS10's would make a great second monitor in the long run though.

My experience is that if you take the time to ask someone they will be gone. I always respond to the ad anfd THEN ask someone.

I have no opinion on NS-10s though except I never used them.

i think you answered your own question.
Im not a fan of NS10s at all, but that is a pretty decent deal if they are working ok. They come up on craigslist here in Nashville all the time for around $400 a pair (give or take) but usually without the amp.
