Good one coogar!
Not Craigslist, but this I found humorous. I AM NOT AFFILIATED!
I am selling this SL-1900 for repair since the tonearm does not go down to play records, the lever that controls it will not bring it down even when it's in the down position. Aside from those problems the player works and both speeds function as well as the speed adjustments. It has a Shure M95ED cartridge installed although the stylus will likely need to be replaced, I've been able to push it down enough to hear it play a record but it doesn't sound very clear
I love those ads! It means I get a great deal on an easy fix.
After tonight's fiasco, I'm done with CL
"The cupholder is broke."
Let it out, son. We're here to listen.
I learned that one can list a Pioneer Receiver/amp, give the model number, era (1990's), and detailed pictures of it from the front and back, and someone will contact you and offer 75% percent of what you are asking. OK, I built in wiggle room for this purpose in the price and I'm still way ahead, so no big deal. Then said person can show up and tell you upon seeing it that "Oh, it doesn't have any HDMI inputs? I need at least four. Yeah, forget it." Never mind the fact that HDMI didn't even EXIST in the 1990's!
2000 Super Red Chevrolet Cavalier 4 cylinder coupe; more fun to drive than a Corvair!
Oh? Then it's safe to drive at some speed, I take it?
I had a buddy that had 2 corvairs..both had a big block behind the seats, seats and motor seperated by a blast shield..lol
I think he was using a Toranado tranny/transaxle..never saw then go but I bet it was an exciting drive.
I learned that it's not worth the effort to even try to sell nicer gear on CL. The only responses you will get are really bad obvious scams.
Just put it up on BT. Then wait a month for it not to sell because it's not a bargain price silver face receiver and list it on Audiogon, where it will sell in two hours.
Which of course is why the call it Audiogone.
Well, why do you think we are all on this forum? It is because the majority of us are cheap and would rather score the same item for a fraction at a thrift or CL!
The people on Audiogon tend to have more funds. Of course there are exceptions to that here on AK, but the majority of us want to get something at minimum cost.
There is in fact practically no overlap--hardly any 'vintage' on Audiogon, practically nothing 'modern' here, especially modern more expensive than a Macintosh....
I have mentioned before,
I'm a audio equipment bottom feeder but once in awhile a good piece falls to the bottom! ;-)"
Many of the most vocal members, sure. The majority? I doubt it.
That's just not true. There is plenty of nicer modern stuff discussed here. It just doesn't sell on BT.
Check out this thread:
Oh I know, no doubt there are some member's systems that are amazing.
I'm just not one of them!
Not CL but close enough...
Today I learned that there are other musical instruments except horns:
I've learned that if you have to sundow, the car stereo is history!
