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



There is a Nad amp for sale on eBay in Melbourne that is only local collection. I had one and it was amazing- a remote and 5 inputs . They sell for around $350 but this one is currently $50. I used mine on Quad 57’s so it’s very stable- although it was eventually killed by Martin Logan’s

I'm just curious...is there a subculture into hifi packaging? Is that even a thing?

He probably at one time had the Thorens table and didn't realise he had the original box for it.

Good condition, flaps present, some writing on box.

I'd haggle the price down a bit due to that writing.

You receive it as a flat pack then have to assemble it

Would you believe he actually specifically addresses that question:

Original Thorens box will not be flat packed. I will send the Thorens box insided another larger box to protect the original.

Not for all people, but 1000 bucks can buy CD player with double crown

Pretty much for every one for I can remove a 28 pin chip in 3 minutes with my (electric) solder extraction gun.

It will look as good as new and I would pay for most of the players sporting one couple of hundred bucks anyway, even if they do not have the chip in it anymore. 😉  

Good thing about this approach is that you get a 100% genuine chip, whereas buying one on eBay would probably get you one with crowns painted on them.

Not so long ago, single crowns were under $200 and double were around $300 and the fact that someone wants $1000 does not mean that there are buyers..

I have some single crowns but no doubles.

 

I in fact use a standard later 1998 Taiwan chip in my player as a preference.

 

I believe the difference between standard 1997 and later Taiwan chips and double crowns might not be as big as some might expect. Better maybe, but how much better?

 

Edit: I just realised this is the gumtree thread, sorry for the off topic posts.

& someone keeps bidding against me lol.

 Probably something to do with the love hate relationship I have with this thread. Love the deals but I hate it when something I am bidding/following gets a mention.
