I'll double your money if you'd like!! grin

Via Craigslist I got a SP-25 with a Audio Technica ATP-12T tonearm all in the Technics SH-15B3 base with dust cover. All in almost mint shape for two bills. FYI I just missed an ebay auction the other day where a guy unloaded an SP-25 for 99 cents. Apparently it didn't spin but the repairs on the TTs are pretty easy; it was gone in 2 minutes!

Enjoy your Technics and if you get tired of that tonearm, let me know!

A few years ago I saw a Crown K1 power amp listed for sale. The owner stated
that it was not functioning, so I figured that, at the worst, I could use it
for parts for projects.

So, I bid on it and won it. When it arrived, I unpacked it and hooked it up.

It worked.

I turned it off and set it aside for a few days. When I tested it again, it did
not work. The old thump test showd that there was an intermittent connecton.

When I took off the top cover, I noticed an torroid type inductor on a circuit board
was positioned (bumped over) in such a way that it might be touching the amp's case.

I straightened it up and put some silicon sealant on the side that was nearest the
case.

The K1 has been working fine ever since. Very nice amp for suboofer use.

You will not believe this at all. But .... Here is my best deal
In 1995

A krell KSA 200 amp, a theta generation III d/a converter, 2 8ft pairs of MIT MH-750 speaker cables, and 4 pair of MIT MI-330 RCAs for ...... $750.00

All worked and I had the gear until 2005 when I sold off my main system.


I got a great deal this week also and upgraded my basement system

Paradigm monitor 11 v3, paradigm ADP 370 v3, paradigm cc 370 v3 center, paradigm PW-2200 subwoofer, with all monster Cables. 800.00

So. Can now sell off the stuff I had in that system and pay for my upgrade I love Craigslist.

A working Audio Pro B1.35 subwoofer, $75 shipped!

New $600+ (I think?) Granted it's 20 years old. It ain't baddest 10" sub available but NO ONE can argue the "bang for the $" factor. After I finish the system's details next year, I'll fix my "Sub sights" on a 12" SVS, Hsu, or Outlaw.

Denon DVD-2910. SACD/DVD AUDIO player. I think new it was like $799. I bought it at a pawn store in the box for $35. It looked brand new. And I used it for over 3 years as my main source for CD's and SACD. But finally upgraded to the Oppo UDP 203 so it is no longer in use.

Just picked up a Panasonic VT30 65 inch plasma for a whopping $450. Guy was the original owner and he had the receipt from 4 years ago. $3499.I would say that I got the better end of that deal.

Just picked up a NAD 7020 stereo receiver for $35. A little contact cleaner and a dusting and it's rocking the house.

I've never owned a NAD before. It's a nice unit.

An Audio Pro Ace bass B1.39, $100 shipped! Rated to 20hz. Needed a little TLC, not the baddest 10" ported sub, but hey.

Correction to previous Audio Pro post: it's an Evidence - 8" ported rated to 27hz. Just PU a second for $100 shipped. Using as dedicated Surround L&R subs.
