    Took most of the summer off due to slim pickings; A few people deciding to purge their storage units led to some pretty substantial bulk purchases:

    Lot #1)
    Hitachi HT-12 Turntable
    Dual 510 Turntable
    Dual 1258 Turntable
    Dual CS 528 Turntable
    Dual 1210 Turntable
    Dual 1214 Turntable
    JVC L-A110 Turntable
    Pioneer PL-12 Turntable
    Realistic R-8000 turntable

    Concord CR-260 Receiver
    Fisher RS-220 Receiver
    Advent 300 Receiver

    Audio Research ST-2000 tuner

    PSB 50R speakers

    Everything needs work of some sort; looking forward to it though. Included were another four turntables that qualified as broken BPC and are straight to the recyclers.

    Lot #2)
    Pioneer CT-F850 Cassette Deck
    Yamaha CA-1010 Integrated Amp
    Sony APM-66ES Speakers

    Belts in the cassette deck are shot and the amp has considerable build-up in the dials and switches. A good cleaning will be required to see whats what. Meter lights work though!
    Addicted to the Flouroscan meters; no idea why I keep letting the pioneer receivers go.

    Slim picking this year as everyone on CL is asking crazy prices, but did manage to pick up the following within a period of a month:

    Jolida 202a
    JBL 1401ND woofers
    JBL Minigon, but drivers in fair condition, crossover fine
    Harman Kardon Citation IV with some Telefunken tubes
    Harman Kardon Citation V
    (haven't tested them yet)

    In the last 2 months I got a free yamaha ax 590 they said left channel was cutting out but its been fine for me.
    Also paid £20 for a marantz pm 6010 ose which goes great.
    Last night I got some celestion dl8 speakers
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/30539771@N00/37059426670/in/datetaken-public/
    only tried these on the 6010 ose and they are very good detail not a lot of bass but they might go better on the yamaha for bass.
    or I can just use the kef psw 2010 for more.

    I can see that score going in all sorts of different directions.

    I already got the Spectro Acoustics bug having picked up a 210 EQ a while back and researching the brand's history (former Phase Linear guys).
    Then there's a great start on the Technics "pro series" rack mount line-up that's on my gear wanted list.
    And that Pioneer rack would look awesome stuffed full of SPEC gear...

    Awesome grab,congrats. :thumbsup:

    Not sure what I'll do with everything.
    I have an all tube setup and the room gets quite warm in the summertime and I have been contemplating running a solid state setup in the summer. This might be were I start but my room is small and running these as monoblocks might be overkill.
    I knew the rack alone was worth twice the asking price.

    Nothing overly fancy. I got some JBL 4311B's in very nice shape a few months ago for $75. Don't know if the sound agrees with me though.

    It's funny how CL (and audio availability in general) ebbs and flows. I'm certainly not a big time searcher, but I do enjoy looking to see what's what from time to time. Great deals seem to fall into my lap in multiples. I'll find a pair of speakers at Salvation Army one day, and the next day I'll find another pair at a garage sale. Follow that up with months of nothingness. Although, I do let a lot of nice bargains pass me by simply because I don't feel like driving out to get them. I watched an ad on CL for a several weeks. The guy was selling a Kenwood receiver (a decent one from the 90's), an NAD CD player, and NAD Model 20 speakers that I found out were actually made by ADS. He wanted $150 for everything, but for some reason I just couldn't bother with it. I don't think most people knew what those speakers were.
