No only did he give me a great deal on a museum quality Accuphase P-400...he packed all 69 pounds of it in another 25 pounds of plastic, styrofoam, and cardboard and shipped it from NY to SC via UPS. Where I'm pleased to say it arrived unscathed and it is even better than he described. It never ceases to amaze how well some older equipment has been cared for. This thing is everything he said and so much more. Thanks for everything Ds2000. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from you again. I know it would be better than described and it would be well packed.
