I did my good deed for the day..    A guy listed on Gumtree FOR FREE to give away a Garrard 301 with SME 3009 Arm!!!! 😮    I promptly rang him and told him he was potentially throw

Gumtree is a eBay owned business for some time now. Surprising when one hears it the first time but true.   As far as 300% profit which you call outrageous, it is not different to what super

I really want to throw this SNA member under the bus for his actions lately. I sold him a set of the Yamaha's in the ad for $1900 and he has them listed at $4000 now. Also he was $100 short which he n

[NSW] JBL L5 Floor Standing Speakers - $500

These are great speakers for the money.


Interested but concerned about what looks like mold or corrosion on some woofers.

Sensational Proton D1200 power amp from the 70's.

These could power up just about anything, and provided a very detailed sound stage. I suspect they might be best with a tube based preamp, or something just a bit warm.

 

I have the D1150 sibling and although it's not currently in use, it's much better than some new amps costing 3 x's the price.

Nah. If I was in the vicinity I would have maybe have asked to see in person. I'm hesitant to buy old speakers as I have some that have similar age related issues.

Warning or Alert!

 

I just noticed a new player on Ebay (aussieaudioclearance) who has been there for about a month, feedback of 4, with a whole bunch of tempting offers starting at $99.

Revel Concerta 2a anyone? Cary SLI-100?

 

Now, it may be legit, but none of the photos are of the actual items (i.e. stock photos). Apologies to the seller if they're for real.

i was just going to post a warning to be very careful when buying these because if it seems too good to be true........ 

 

buy at your own risk and make sure you do it through paypal at least.

The brands all look to be those of the distributer: https://convoy.com.au/

 

Some of the items also seem to match their clearance page:

https://convoy.com.au/shop/

 

No idea if they are legit though, so as per above, buyer beware

Just sent an email asking for ACTUAL item pics.  Always the giveaway - every single item has stock advertising photos - not a real photo anywhere.  Look forward to their response....!

Maybe @Marc could confirm with Convoy, I believe they are a sponsor here. Personally, I think it is Convoy. Possibly give them a call.

These look like the same clones that sold a few months back for $4000.

 

I was interested and asked to see photos of the crossover. Whatever crossover is in them it is not original spec and there are no known aftermarket networks. I steered clear based on that but the drivers and cabinets are easily worth 4k.

Goofing around while I’m on hold to Telstra trying to work out why most of our devices lost stored emails yesterday.  Found this pretty Swedish item, Luxor Dirigent 4300

Or sold via the warehouse. If you're interested in anything listed, give them a call. They are good to deal with.

NPR showcases an eclectic range of artists - recordings are top notch too.

Where do you find them? There are a couple that I'd love to get my hands on if they're FLAC.

Definitely, not a criticism   I had a bid on it and it disappeared 😅

Failing to score that bargain of the century, there's always his other listing: Burial site at Castlebrook Memorial Gardens in Garden of Repose!

Too good to be true. I think there is at least 1 or 2 zeroes missing from that price. Have you followed up? 😁

I contacted the seller within a minute of the ad going up. Looks like the Flash beat me to it.

So did I. All I got was message bank, so left a message, plus one via GT. I even stated it was worth more than he was asking. The ad is still up, so who knows.
