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

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

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.
