Found a nice vintage bar tool today. Patented 1932, called the Jolly Good Mixer
My haul this week so far:
Yorkville YSM-1 Studio Monitors $12 GW
Really almost passed these up 2x- I saw York.. and walked off. Luckily I went back and pulled off a cover, I knew right away they were something special. Built buy API Canada for Yorkville there are some raving reviews online regarding these speakers.
Carver CM-1090 $24 GW
Monitor Audio ASW100. $4 GW
Marantz SR-5001 $16 GW
Earlier this week
Sony DA90ESG, $16
This thing is a beast, $1600 original MSRP, huge caps 120 WPC @ 8ohms. Great for 2 channel music in Pure Direct mode!
Cervin Vega AT-10, need refoam. $14
Wow, at those prices I would be buying all day long. In So Cal, BPC receivers are in the $40-60 range. Not cheap enough to be worth flipping.
To be honest with you it’s made me an addict
You are talking to the wrong person about that. I am an enabler, lol. I picked up a Sony AVR like yours for $30 and I felt like I hit the jackpot. Mine is the 110 wpc version so not as nice as yours although it is a year or two newer.
Those are some pretty cheap prices.Hasn't been like that here in fifteen years.
Don't confuse Yorkville with Yorx. Yorkville was a Canadian pro sound manufacturer. A lot of their PA speakers punch well above their weight class. I never saw a studio monitor from them, but you can bet it wasn't just ad gimmick, that was the market they were designed for.
Edit: I said was. I should have said is. Check out their latest offering on Musician's Friend.
Very nice. I'm worried about your car seats though! You need a moving blanket to protect them from those sharp corners... Like others have mentioned those prices are great.
I try not to buy any unneeded extras but at those prices I wouldn't have been able to say no. Great buys!
Or a Huey Lewis and the News "FORE!" for $18
Not audio, but I found a complete in box TI99/4a recently.
My first vinyl score of the young yard sale season.
I picked up a Doors LA Woman 1st issue at local record store for $6 yesterday. You probably got a little better deal.
I paid half of that, but you did really well. I'm actually surprised a shop would let one with good cellophane go so cheap. That's a $35 - 50 record. Of course you didn't mention condition.
Very good condition.
I can't believe a shop sold that for $6. They missed.
Value village be slippin with there prices. 19.99 for a kenwood "The rock" turntable.
I always wanted to try one of those.
Denon DVD-2910, $22. Not exactly a deal but "universal" players are always in demand so I'm in.
