If you think no one has seen the ads before they hit SNA then you are mistaken. The price will be what it will be

I’m not that naive but I still suggest drawing attention to bargains on a site such as this is going to attract the attention of more cashed up audiophiles than hunt through ebay etc . I’ll just have to accept it as a selfless public service as there’s nothing I can do about it.

Reminds me of a thread that appeard some years ago on another audio forum which drew attention to insanely inflated prices paid by bidders on eBay for audio gear. At times I wonder if winning the auction is more fun for some buyers than owning the actual gear itself.

Definitely, I got an email from EBay about the cancellation, and although it says that you can check the reason for it in the bidding section  I can't find anything

Hard to say but maybe he realised he wasn't getting the price he was after, OR someone made him a "private" offer ;)

Maybe he made a mistake listing the item on eBay?

You can withdraw an ad for any reason. If the item sold elsewhere. If you realised the item is now faulty. Or, if you didn’t like the price it looked like achieving. 

Over ten years on eBay I’ve found that a no reserve start and letting it play out will more often than not get you the market value or higher. All you need is two active bidders. If someone has bid from 99c it’s hard for them to mentally let the item go.

It’s funny that one.  I’ve listed items for a starting bid or buy-it-now and it hasn’t sold.  I subsequently list it a month later starting at a 99c auction, and it ends up selling for more than my previous buy-it-now.
