Perhaps you're new to this online auction phenomenon and can't get past the fancy words. Maybe you thought you read a listing properly but were oh so disappointed when instead of getting a minty 9090DB you won a melon baller. Here are some common auction site phrases and their actual meanings: "Works fine." means I have no idea if it works. I found it in a dumpster behind a slaughter house. "Incredible sound." means I turned it on and it lit up. Then, I turned it off. "Some nicks and scratches, which are to be expected from a unit of this vintage." means The receiver was involved in a shoot-out, then dropped from a 40-story building, then submerged in a pond for several years before I hooked it with my fishing rod. "Some static/noise when using the volume thingy; not sure but probably something simple." means I have stripped every single piece of this amplifier down to the last screw, then put it back on again in a fruitless effort to fix the scratchy volume potentiometer. I have sprayed, no kidding, about one gallon of DeOxit into the volume pot and it is literally unfixable; please buy this before I stab myself in the leg with a #2 Phillips screwdriver. "Has worked perfectly for twenty years." means Has sat in a spider-infested root cellar with 82% humidity for twenty years. "Clean." means You should have seen this before I cleaned it. I am selling this in the vain hope of recouping some of the money I spent on Windex, Simple Green, acetone, lacquer thinner, isopropyl alcohol, and oven cleaner. I am referring only to the outside of the receiver BTW; if fifty, chain-smoking long-haired feral cats used this as a litter box for sixteen years it wouldn't come close to what you're going to see when you pull the cover off. "One owner." means One owner, who eventually went insane, stripped naked, and jumped into a public fountain clutching this amp. "Rare!" means Can be found anywhere, even a feed store. "Will be packed carefully." means You might want to be sitting down when you open the shoebox I shipped your dual mono tube blocks in. Please add to the phrase book as you see fit!
