Appraisal done by audio sound technician

 

 

 

Asking price $350.00

 

 

Appraisals would best be done by googling the model number next time and avoiding the technician's fee! But good luck to them, glad to see they'll get a fair price irrgardless of low appraisal.

The word is 'regardless'. Sorry, but your version is one of those 'Bushisms' that have made it into everyday speech that irks me a little.

 

I had a look at one of these 124's on Friday. A mate picked one up at a garage sale for $75, with SME 3009 and all. They do look the business. The engineering is pretty damn good.

I understand the desire to own this turntable. What I don't understand, especially from experienced bidders, is why they bid (and keep bidding) before the final minutes of an auction. All they do is drive up the price. Who cares if the runner was leading on the first lap, it's the last lap that counts. There are only two times to click: one, to meet the reserve (which removes the danger of Buy Now) so the auction becomes real; two, to win with the lowest possible bid - which means bidding at the last possible moment.

The cynic in me says they want to drive up prices.

 

All good for future sales in the long run.

Its the thrill of the chase and once the bidding starts you want to win if it's something you desire and can't back away from . If the same item went on fleabay well .....

Heh, you've pick out the portmanteau, but then slice that apostrophe straight into the rough.

 

Uh oh - grammar on a trademe thread. This will end in tears...

I like "irregardless". They use it a lot in The Sopranos, from time immemorial.

Brilliant! If I had a cap I would doff it firmly in your direction!

Too much?

I dunno, but I presume that this is in line with international pricing. This is classic kit that (given care and maintenance) will perform to a high level. I would say a good result for the seller.

If the vinyl revival continues the TT will be a true investment. Regardless there are few decks today at that price point and more that will do as much and with the same result. A connoisseurs deck. Few can better it, takes allot to beat it.

Good price I reckon, in fact I almost got motivated to get a personal loan of $2000 which I would have been willing to pay if I had it spare. I'm just glad the sharks didn't get it. Congrats to the winner.

Seems to be in line with international prices but really?

 

What's its equivalent new TT in the sound stakes? A P3?

As for international pricing -
- more stupid money for thorens! (Oh dear - outboard motor and inner-tube - like putting a great big spoiler on the back of your Jaguar E type)

 

that is a wrong turntable that you have in your link. The turntable from Trademe is a TD124. I am not sure if it is a Mark1 or Mark 11 turntable.

If you really want to make a comparison, the TD124 is usually compared with a Garrard 301.

 

TD124 beat Regal P3 anytime.

omegaspeedy,

 

The winner paid a fair price for the turntable. The arm itself is around the 400-500 mark, and that leave about 1.4K for the turntable. I think that is a TD124 mark 1 turntable.
