I always look anyway. If they don't know much, maybe they'll put a $500 record in for $20.
High end stuff did. I have a Pioneer PD-M910 that also has optical out.
These are 601 series I speakers.
Lol wow I need to pay closer attention myself, glanced at the pic an thought they were 301. Doh!
I had a similar experience at a thrift while visiting Madison WI recently. Nothing but crap I still had to ask the woman if the prices are negotiable because ALL her stuff is stupidly overpriced. There was a used el cheapo toaster for ten bucks and I'm sure she overheard me tell my friend you can buy a brand new one on sale at Walgreens for $9.99!!

Thought I hit good score on neckties yesterday, for a second. 5 armani ties and one burberry... All fakes! But, there was a real
Talbott best of class with the nordstrom tags still on it. About a $200 tie new.. First time ive came across fake designer ties at the thrift.
Found a slightly battered set of EPI 100V speakers for $11 that need new surrounds. Had a "Tested - Functional" sign on them put there by an employee with either incredibly low standards or a strange sense of humour.
Fender Squier Stratocaster 1998 Mexico made with pearlite pick guard (but does need one string replaced). and gig bag.for $16 with my "Geezer" discount. I also found a Fender acoustic guitar which I passed on to my thrifting partner bobsvinyl which cost him $8.
Those Mexican Squires are pretty nice guitars. A pro setup will have that playing great.
Good for you Dublin, was that at BTP?
The gig bag is worth $16.
No, it was n the retail side.
I've head a lot about those. I'd like to check them out sometime. I'd LOVE to check them out for 5 bux!
Are they the version with or without the rear ports?
Spent way too much at thrift today. Found ANOTHER Leo Kottke LP, and a VG appearing copy of Chicago Transit Authority, plus a couple other LPs and CDs, TONS of books, and two old "lightning" canning jars (I use them for dry storage in the kitchen, you can still get replacement seals for them, and nice new silicone ones at that)
Denon DVD-3910 with all accessories, $66. Not my normal great score but I have always liked the sound of the 3910. Interestingly, the same store had almost every model of Rotel AV preamp. They were non-HDMI and only one was the newer silver with flange look. There was also a RSP-1098 but it was over priced. If it lasts to half price, I'll bite. Passed on a Parasound P/SP-1000 preamp, overpriced. There were a couple of NHT sub controllers in another flipper's cart which might have interested me.
As you can see above, Walter (DublinTrader) and I had a good day at the thrifts. Walter found two guitars, one electric and one acoustic and was nice enough to share the wealth. The acoustic is in nice shape and is a Fender Squier made in China and it's pretty hefty. It cost $8.00 after my geezer discount. I also found a few records and some great vintage kitsch, two mummified toads sold as tourist souvenirs. They creeped my wife out, but I love stuff like this.
