I got robbed (burgled)

Recommended Posts

I was out last night for dinner and when I got home my back door had been smashed up, someone/s had come in to my hifi room and stolen mostly everything.

 

Please if anyone see's any of this stuff (possibly bundled together on ebay, gumtree, Facebook marketplace or local hock shops) please send me a private message

 

What they stole:

Project carbon tt

PC in Silverstone case (pentium g620)

Schiit mani phono stage

My own DIY passive pre (will upload a photo of that)

Oppo udp105

Bryston 4bbst

Over 1000 cds

Over 500 vinyls

Pioneer kuro pdp 5090lx

Krix neuphonix mk 1

2 rel t/5i subwoofers

50ish blu rays.

Topping d50 dac

Most of this I have bought from gumtree or similar sites.

Any leads would be much appreciated.

 

The thing I am most upset about is the vinyls as everyone knows the effort we go to to collect and keep our collection in good shape.

 

I am in sydney so these would most likely be listed in Sydney.

 

Thankyou again.

I'd be pretty suspicious that this is targeted. I wouldn't have expected an opportunistic burglar to be prepared to take Neuphonixes and a plasma

 

I hope the insurance pays out well

Just hifi room targeted?

 

Who have you had over? Did you try sell something or the like?

Have you sold anything lately?  Had an interested buyer to your home?

 

EDIT: @Bunno77 beat me to it!

The driveway goes all the way up to the back room, so they must have parked right next to the door and loaded everything in.
They stole a few other bits and pieces around the bottom floor of my house thought upstairs seems to be untouched.

I haven't sold anything in a while and usually do so from work.
The only person that has been around has been a handyman, though he is a friend of my mother's I still have given his details to the police.

Damn that's rough @anewmission.

Probably most of our worst nightmares coming home to that.


Hope it turns into bigger and better things once you bounce back from it.

Pretty much all interconnects and power cables were left behind.

So the thief was a cable denialist....

That is a serious amount of gear physically, must of had a van and knew they had plenty of time? Would take a good hour to do all that?

Terrible news.

Yeh I was out for about 3 hours. I had been getting calls on my home phone, when I would answer they would hang up. So the police are looking into that also.

The cabling would have just been ripped out so they could take the equipment faster I guess, as it was going between cabinets and some through the wall.

Easily a good hour, incredibly brazen.

I would have thought most house jobs the **** would want to be in and out as quick as possible.

More like 5 minutes, 10 tops.  Sit and time 1 minute and imagine clearing out your gear, especially if you don't care for it, then multiply that by 5 or 10.
