I got robbed (burgled)

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.

 

Man, l am absolutely gutted for you.

Talk about being violated. Felt sick when l read it. It's always on the back of my mind when l go over seas.

 

The stereo can be replaced (hope you were insured) but LPs and even some CDs can never be replaced now.  Hope they catch these mongrels,and you get some of your stuff back. Keep your chin up buddy. All the best.

Ken.

40 years ago I had $6k of Hifi stolen.
Wharfedales, Linn Sondek, dynavector ruby etc etc.........
Claimed the lot on insurance. 5 years later went to visit an old ‘friend’ , only to find it all in his living room.

I was not impressed to say the least. When confronted he said ‘ I thought you knew’
WTF I said.
He then described a conversation we had where he asked how I would feel if the stuff was ever stolen. I replied along the lines of ‘it’s all insured and I bought it all wholesale, so I’d just get a better system with th insurance money. Apparently that was permission enough for him to knock off my prized possession.

He is dead now.......and no, it wasn’t me :-)

May be worth keeping an eye out on the vinyl flippers on Discogs (and on here too... 😬).

Searching and keeping an eye out for your rarer record titles may be the easiest way to find your collection if it does get put up for sale.

Sorry to hear. This type of thing really pisses me off. 

 

It doesn't seem like an opportunist crime at all to me.

Just be aware that more than likely it's someone you have invited into your home either when you've sold something or a friend of a friend who got impressed with what you have , e.g. you demoed your gear .
Further in 3 months they'll be back , I lived in Carlton had bars on the window's and they ripped those out of the wall. Our insurance got declined after 4 burglaries the place was like Fort Knox bars on the window's and doors , alarm we moved . Camera's are great after the event personally I favour two big barking dogs to deter them . Certainly will keep an eye out .

Mate I am totally gutted for you, however I see your SNA handle or nickname is "anewmission" I can only hope you are insured and that you can remember most of the vinyl and cd you owned and make it your "new mission" to start again bigger and better, sorry don't want this to sound like a pun.

 

Its a horrendous thing to happen and a reminder to us all to make sure we are properly protected and insured. I know I I am going to review mine this week. 

 

Guys that do this to others just have no idea what it means to collect music , to create a collection and to spend as much money as you can on making it sound good. They are drop dead mother fxckers...

 

I will keep watch from Perth for any off the items just incase they try this side of OZ.

This is not for this thread but WTF I would have loved to be a fly in the room for the next minute or so.

Ouch.

 

Might be worthwhile listing some of the more expensive albums from your collection so we can keep an eye out for them.

Really sux!

 

Sorry to hear of this, and it is everyone's nightmare :(

 

Like others I think this is far from a run of the mill theft, it was planned and targeted.

 

Hope the bastards get pinched for it.

ALSO...A reminder to all to check your insurance is up to date as we all move things on or buy new gear and forget to update the insurance and these days its got to be recorded with exact serial numbers .

 

Please take pictures of all the hardware gear, cables  and vinyl / cds you own. Imagine saying to an insurance claim guy , hey I bought a $3000 pair of speaker cables on a thread on a website called SNA, no receipt no paperwork. At least are adverts stay up. Maybe a good reason to also keep the prices in the adverts for future reference , I know sometimes I remove and its bad practice.

Yeh, I just checked my router settings and both the computer and Samsung tablet(which I forgot to mention) mac I.p addresses were able to be seen.
So I am passing that on to police also.

As far as rare vinyls, I am tryinh to think. Mostly rare punk bands
Nofx surfer 7"
Nofx the p. M. R. C can suck on this 7"
Nofx **** the kids

I had a limited press boxset of a band called anberlin. The boxset is called help yourself.
Many more my head is just a mess today

Sorry to hear about this.

 

Contrary to others in the thread, I think that you have probably been the target of some random thieves, likely supporting a drug habit.

 

There is a good chance that your music will end up at a pawnbroker or second hand music store. That is where I would focus any effort if you.

 

I hope that you were adequately insured.

Very sorry to hear about your loss, I know the feeling and having our things stolen wasn't the worst thing, it was knowing someone came into our home and went through our things. Hope they get caught and you get your stuff back, this was most likely targeted as they knew what to take and where it was. Someone gave them the scoop of what you have.
