I always suspected it is so they can put a sneaky offer in below the asking price, but then announce to the world a "PM Sent" message so that hopefully other buyers will assume the PM'er has asked to buy it and it is a done deal - to discourage other buyers from competing with them. "PM Sent" is vague though and does not say what the personal message is about.

 

In some cases it could also be that they don't realise that the personal message recipient will likely get a notification of the message.

 

I suggest if you see "PM Sent" and you want the item - offer to buy it anyway as it might not be a finalised sale, or you might be able to offer better terms such as local pick up or whatever.

 

I think "PM Sent" posts used to be banned in the rules but it seems it is not anymore - just discouraged as unnecessary.

You may be reading a lot into a simple “PM sent”. 

 

Anyway, apologies to everyone I may have offended. I’ll try to remember not to do this again!

No need to stop posting "PM sent" on my account. It is not against the rules and lots of people do it. No offence was caused - only confusion.

 

You are right that I may be reading a lot into it - but in the absence of knowing the actual reasons people do this - reading into it and making assumptions/guesses is all I can do. So that is what I did in trying to answer the question from Jai.

I don't see the reason for such hate with "PM Sent".

 

I mean, it's equivalent to "I will take it" .

 

I don't see the big problem with it.

I have more issues (wrt my preferences) with the price being taken off once sold. 
I’m not convinced that that serves the/our community. It’s good to get an indication of the market price (good or bad). Imho. Ymmv.

I think it only happened for a short time.

marc did change it back after people complained about it.

Is it still happening on yours?

I don’t know as I haven’t bothered (re) checking in recent time, ie i stopped looking

 

but if that’s been changed that’s great and good to know - i actually thought that was members deleting prices doing it and not moderators

 

thanks for the info :)

 

ps I think we (including I) have taken this thread quite a bit off topic

 

sorry

      Item Condition: Excellent apart from cosmetic marks on one side of each enclosure, shown in last 2 photos Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Ivanhoe East State: VIC Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Reason for selling: NLR. Change of direction to omni-directional Further information: These have been with me for longer than usual and not disappointed in any way. In fact (no pun intended) I'd go so far as to say that they have surpassed my expectations, even for a speaker with RRP of $28K - especially with their effortless control, timing, extension, spectacular vocal definition and transparency.
      Knowing that they borrow key components from the flagship model Fenestria, they are closer in performance to the flagship than the Twenty 5.26 is below them. This 3-way model features two 140mm super-long-throw Fact bass drivers, hand-built ferro-fluid cooled 50mm soft dome Fact mid driver and Sonomex ferro-fluid cooled 19mm soft dome Fact tweeter; Extended frequency response 26Hz-30kHz; Tall, deep and narrow enclosures, measuring 1110mm H x 168mm W x 420mm D and 26kg each; Twin ATL (Advanced Transmission Line) ports with 3.3m effective length; Single, Bi- or Tri-wiring capability with 3 pairs of PMC Ag terminals & links supplied; Three-position LF and HF settings to adjust tonal balance for varying acoustics; Chrome-plated outriggers with spikes for enhanced stability; Factory-matched pair.
       
      As the only pair to ever appear for sale on Stereonet as far as I know, they are a unique upgrade opportunity for a PMC lover, or a critical listener seeking a truly special speaker at a realistic price. Donation to SNA on sale.

      Item Condition: Immaculate Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Richmond State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal Friends, Cash Reason for selling: Upgrade Further information: Up for sale is my McIntosh C2200 tube preamplifier. This unit presents in immaculate condition as per pictures below with only minor handling marks on the casework. 
       
      When released in 2003 this was Mcintosh's first tube preamplifier released in nearly 30 years. It was designed by Sidney Corderman who designed much of their gear in the 60's and is a sought after unit having a higher compliment of tubes than current offerings from McIntosh. A recent video review by a Canadian dealer compares this favourably to McIntosh's latest C2700 offering noting the C2200 has a more 'tube like sound' than the newer units which are hybrid design. This unit was available in Mcintosh's catalogue for about 8 years.
       
      This unit has been fitted with a full complement of Gold Lion gold pin reissue 12AX7 and 12AT7 in both the phono stage (750 hours use fitted 12 months ago) and line stage (300 hours use fitted 4 months ago). These take the sound of the unit to a whole new level compared to the standard Mcintosh tubes issued in the 2000's. This unit has had an LED lamp kit fitted to replace the incandescent bulbs as well as new genuine light boxes and filters behind the VU meters. It also includes an HR093 remote control which is in new condition and much more economic than the factory remote.

      This unit is versatile with 4 balanced inputs, 7 unbalanced inputs including a brilliant MM Phono stage and 3 sets of outputs (balanced and unbalanced) as well as programmable power trigger controls for each. It has many other features such as a 214 step digital volume control with optical encoder for very precise volume control and level matching between channels, input reassignment, tone override function per input, mono/stereo selector, tape monitor loop for recording to analog medium as well as home theatre bypass, not to mention those beautiful blue VU meters. Signal to noise ratio is stellar with no background hiss from either the line or phono stage.
       
      I have been using this with my McIntosh MC275 for a 18 months and really enjoy its liquid midrange and great detail at either end of the spectrum.
       
      A review of this unit can be found here; https://www.stereophile.com/tubepreamps/577/index.html and here for the recent if not somewhat lengthy review Audio Excellence Mcintosh C2200
       
      Audition available. Pickup from Richmond, Melbourne. I don't have a box for this unit and therefore reluctant to post unless you wish to make your own arrangements.
       
      You can see a video of my the unit in action here filmed early Jan 2021: 
       
      As well as a demo of the phono stage running through a SUT (excuse average quality video on this one).
