Picked up Pink Floyd A Nice Pair today for .75. Occasionally I win one.
Been picking up a lot of Tim Weisberg albums myself lately.
Picked up a few CD's at our lame Flea Market today. Dude had about 13-15 CD zip pouches to go through. To bad the Ultradiscs were missing their cases.
That must be the guy who steals them out of the cases at the GW.
That guy must get around.
I think he haunts my local Thrifts too.
I actually had a old guy (older than me so he was reeeaaally old!) next to me at Buy the Pound who was taking all the CDs and DVDs out of the cases and just keeping the discs. I asked him why he was doing it and he said it was cheaper to just buy the discs because you're charged by weight. I mentioned to him that now people will pick up the case and there's nothing in it. He got one of those "So?" faces and walked away.
With file sharing, honestly at this point the packaging is worth more than the disc.
That thing is lovely!
I couldn't have left that there for $40 either.
If I was going to ask $250 for those speakers, I'd at least wipe the seagull shit off of them first.
Picked this CD player up today at GW for $10
Sony CDP-C79ES from 1992
The lady was just putting it on the shelf. I saw wood and grabbed it
Got it home and cleaned it up inside and out. Inside the tray motor was still nicely lubed and is dead quiet. The drive belt is a tad softening but works perfectly. I can’t believe how good it sounds honestly.
Is there any info on the DAC in this guy? I believe it’s CXD2562?
Today's $40 is ten years ago's $5 for a silver faced receiver. They are drying up.
I'm surprised they had optical out in '92.I had a similar player and it sounded pretty good until it stopped reading discs.
They are all on CL asking $475 to $600 for them around here.
Not very often I get a 'scroe' around here but couldn't pass this one up. Probably paid too much but got a real whiner here. No, don't want to sell this one.
Like to see the inside of that antenna box, neat item. HiFi engine has an advertisement for a similar box, ad from DAK, and a user manual.
The BIC antenna is a sealed unit. The top plate is smoked plexiglass so you can see inside but too dark to show up in photos. It beats rabbit ears appearance wise but performs similarly.
I was in Bloomington IL over the weekend and thought I'd look around for some deals.
The Goodwill only had old Aiwa systems for audio so I bought a DVD and a few books.
Found "Neighborhood Thrift" online and figured I'd stop in. 'Should have been "Expensive Antique Store" instead.
They had one small box of albums (maybe 20) that STARTED at $9.00 each
They DID have an old console radio that had been repurposed with an MCS receiver and some JBLs that were painted orange.
