    Estate sale this morning. No mention of audio in the ad or I probably wouldn't have gotten this stuff..

    Technics sl-1300
    Pioneer sa-7300
    Diatone-251miNI

    All have original manuals..
    Any idea to the value of the diatones?

    Very nice, love it when the audio is overlooked, hope the price was good to. The SL-1300 is a nice table, it will go on forever.

    It does look good doesn't it. They are quite directional so placement is tricky. I also removed the blue plastic filter in the dial pointer in hopes of enhancing the brightness. It helps a bit.

    The gentleman running the sale had some other equipment out with the sale. Nothing I was really interested in. I asked him if he had any other audio gear for sale. He said he had a lot and was slowly clearing it out. He preferred to clean them up and get them working before selling on kijiji.

    I asked if there was anything he'd be interested in selling as-is. Long story short, he brought out the Marantz and I paid his asking price without thinking twice.

    Man I really like these little speakers. I got a pair for our living room because the Mrs. wanted them hidden. Got another set for the bedroom because they sounded so good. Hope you dig them as much as I do.

    Estate sale today had lots of 8-track players, and a Centrex by Pioneer compact system, and lots of tools, but then.......on top of a file cabinet in the back of the garage, behind the jazz 78s, was a pair of Boston Acoustics A-150s. They need surrounds, of course, but I'm anxious to hear them.

    Nice! I have a pair of those. Easy refoam. The old adhesive scraped off without much effort.. I think you will enjoy how they sound.

    I need to check my collection to make sure it's still there! Great music, right up my alley. I'd have been all over that.

    Went out yesterday and grabbed a Paradigm PDR-12 powered sub and a pair of Phase Technology PC-80's, all for $20! The PC-80's are solid oak and weigh 22 pounds each, and sound very airy and open. I want to try them with tubes later today if I have some time.

    The PC80's are not solid oak, they are wrapped in oak veneer. They are high quality speakers though, I have a pair and I love them. $20 was a great price, what condition are the woofer surrounds in?

    You are right on the veneer. I read some review that said solid oak cabs. The surrounds are excellent. The middle foam seems dry, but they sound great. Hard to believe they were $650 new. Wow.

    Wow indeed, the flat foam on the woofer is inconsequential, it's the surround foam that matters. Do your best to avoid touching the foam around the tweeters, it will be crumbling by now. Keep the grills on and all will be well. I have them powered by a big Yamaha amp right now but they worked well with a Fisher tube amp as well. $20 is a steal, especially with good woofer surrounds. :thumbsup:

    $20 was even better because it included the Paradigm sub too! I tried them through my SX-1980 and my Magnavox tube amp and I actually like the tubes better with them. I accidentally touched the tweeter foam and it started to crumble, so the grills went right back on. Was a pretty good score all in all. Not that I need more speakers, but......
