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

It's listed for $350+ and still going? Relist or perhaps a flip?

Nah i was referring to the picture of the $ 20 facebook ad another member put up of  the amp. 350 is still cheap i paid 650 for mily luxman r1050 non recapped and i still consider it good value as it really is a sweet sounding unit to my ears. Lovely and tubey rock solid bass and mids through the IMF supercompacts.

£698.00 works out to about $1225AUD, so about normal.

Store DJ is selling it for $2189 so it's over $800 difference.

The local price is very high for some RME products. It’s inconsistent though, the ADI-2 pro version isn’t bad value locall.y. But things like the babyface pro or the ADI-2 DAC are much cheaper overseas.

Thanks for mentioning this. By my calculations if you buy on their store website, it ends up under $1400 inc. shipping, but you may get slugged gst on arrival.

 

 I was going to buy another dac for a bit less on demo clearance yesterday, but they didn't have it anymore, so I'm seriously considering this now 👍

Even with GST and duty it's a decent saving vs buying locally

Exactly. I was going to buy a M2Tech Young DSD dac (ex-demo) for $1200, but it seems they had sold it. I don't know how it compares to the RME, but both have good reviews, so for a few hundred more the RME may be a good compromise.

Buying directly from their store website is cheaper than the one on reverb. I have sent an email to Studio care to ask them if the dac will include any warranty. They said it will come with 2 year warranty but you have to send it back for warranty claims.

Taylor 45D valve tester in Holland Park QLD. A fantastic competitor to AVO Mk3, Mk4 and CT160 valve testers without the galvanometer going bad. 👍

Hear here! I love mine which is in immaculate condition. This one is also in good nick. A great buy for any valve enthusiasts.

Haven't seen an Amazon listing posted here but for Dire Straits fans you can pick up the MFSL 45rpm Self Titled album for $86 delivered. Best price I have seen. I already have a copy but I bought another.

Wow.  $86 is in the good buys section for an album  🤣

 

Subjective one I guess. For some, MoFi 45rpm recording is very high quality recording so price to pay and the listed price is very good buy since it is including shipping.  For a dude like me who does not have good ear,  maybe...🤔

It is when the opposition is charging $125 ya wally ! 😉

Free delivery with Prime too.

 

However I hear what you're saying,  even I'm beginning to lose enthusiasm for a lot of the increased pricing of vinyl recently.

Hegel H120 for $1,500

This looks a bit like a scam but happy to be proven wrong. I'm currently talking to the owner via gumtree. It's smells fishy. He doesn't actually live in Sydney and only wants to post it as he's to busy for a pickup. 🤔

I'll probably give this a miss, but happy for someone else to hit the owner up and investigate :)

There had been few hegel amp scams on gumtree. All posted by those joined gumtree recently and listed as in sydney but when contacted will say it has to be posted. Some of these ads used photos and descriptions from overseas listing, and clearly scam. Stay away.

Thanks for the info Ulah. This was definitely a scam and I did report it to Gumtree.  Exactly as you described. The ad was no longer available last night.
