"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!
A few things:
1. Vape gear is an electronic.
2. Car stereo guys think that "amps" and "subs" are only applicable to cars.
3. The merican education sistem is failin us.
4. People don't really look at their photos that they post because if they did they would think of themselves as idiots.
5. Some of the best opportunities don't have a way to contact the seller.
6. Responses to questions are usually as dumb as the original post.
I'd be all over that, it has a bass knob!
Sheeesh, you'd think anyone who can spell merican could spell edjucation....
Don't think that didn't catch my eye. I will admit I was tempted....
The only thing missing is the word "Vintage". Oh the amazing stuff we find in the MA Craigslist "Electronics" section.
