    In a local consignment shop, I found some vintage gear. An Allied 498 receiver, and a pair of Acoustiflex 15" 4 way speakers. Figured I'd post it up here, and see if anybody wants it. The grills are in good shape, the middle of the tweeter is pushed in on the one I took the grill off. 20170807_161359.jpg

    $83 for the allied
    $205 for the speakers

    Hello dB happy,

    I am interested in the allied, is it fully working? Can you ship it to Cincinnati, OH?

    Thanks, Pinecroft

    I have no idea if it works. I'll go back there, and test it if they'll let me. I'm not the seller, it's a local consignment shop. If you're interested, they might ship it.

    My brother is literally at that place right now asking me if the receiver is worth getting. He sent me a photo, I did a google search, and I see the photo posted here is the SAME one.
    Note: it is now "50% off"

    Also the exact same BPC is still on top of it. Funny

    It's on the cover of the 1971 Allied Radio Shack catalog. Top of the line that year, built by pioneer. Wish I were there!
    Best!

    Did your brother get it? If he did, let us know how he likes it!

    I have a feeling those aren't original drivers in that speaker.

    If it's 50% off, and it's still there, I might go get it tomorrow.

    Offer them even less. At this point its taking up space.
