  1. @Lenehan Audio Too cheap Mike! Here is a similar one on eBay, current bid $490... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Metrum-Octave-NOS-Mini-DAC/254488191368?hash=item3b40ada188:g:UpIAAOSwh~xeJoED
  2. Here is one that I imagine could happen. You are selling something and a guy agrees to purchase, but lives at the other end of the city and can only come get it on the weekend. A guy who lives closer offers the same and can pick up now. What do you do? There is no guarantee that the first guy will come on the weekend. So do you ask for a no refundable holding deposit from the first guy? Just to be clear this is purely hypothetical!!
  3. Buyer came back to me this morning and had a family emergency and will no longer be purchasing. All good, onto the next offer!
  4. Yeah, I agree. Money talks. But what about in this instance...( not what has happened to me just curious about what people would do )... Say you agree a price on Friday and the buyer agrees to pick up Sunday ( his first chance to be able to ). On Saturday you have a guy offer the same money and a pick up Saturday. Do you stick by the original agreement or take the new deal?
  5. Hi, Just wondering how long you should wait on a buyer for an item you are selling in the classifieds? Friday night a price was agreed and a time to pick up agreed 'around midday' Saturday. I wrote a message on Saturday morning with address and mobile number then....silence. I can see that the person was online on SNA Saturday morning at about 10am, but they hadn't read my message and another follow up message until about midnight last night ( 10 hours ago ) but didn't reply. I know sometimes life can get busy and there are other priorities besides hi fi, so would hate to take up another offer only for the original buyer to come back with legitimate reasons for not contacting me. How long do you have to wait until you can move on with a clear conscience? Any guidelines to this? I imagine it would happen a fair bit. Person agrees and then sleeps on it and changes mind, or something better comes along. Funds needed for emergency - who knows??? Thanks.
  6. Getting a fair bit of interest ( as above ).Had a buyer at $400, but he has gone quiet and I have decided that $400 is as low as I will go. If it doesn't sell at $400 happy to keep as a back up. This is less than a quarter of retail for a great amp.

  9. Item: E88CC Valvo RED Label x 2 Location: Southern Sydney, 2232 Price: 250 ono plus postage. ( make an offer as I am unsure of the value ) Item Condition: Used, great condition Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only NB...Not sure on pricing, just going by what they seem to sell on eBay for, but always seem to be overseas. So if off the mark with price let me know ( aka make offer via PM )
  10. Oh lordy! You are so right about the trying to catch the enjoyment we derived from music in my youth! Never had a good system when young, but I remember loving listening to music. I think back if having the system I have now would've enhanced what I enjoyed so much in my youth. I reckon probably not! Would've just taken it for granted, like everything in my youth!!!
  11. @xenorg Look at the Lenehan ML1's in the classifieds. Then look at getting a second hand amp.
