    Best Thrift Store/Garage Sale Finds

    Hey all, My finds include a pair of Acoustat 2+2 with red medallions for $200 off of craigs list and the seller delivered them about a hundred mile to me !! 4 Minimus 7 black in great shape from a local consignment shop for $20 . Velodyne VA-1210 for $15 from the same shop , a little rough around the edges but works great. My daughter in-law's mother inherited some property from their next door neighbor when he past away ( they took care of him for the last 4 years as he had no family ) and she brought me some equipment he had consisting of, Tandberg 2002 pre amp, 2003 amp, a pair of MTX AAL212 speakers and an AR77xb turntable for free.

    Our friends in the path of Irma

    Great to hear from all of my FL people that your all ok. Here in Deland we had a big tree in the backyard , but missed the house and just clean up the yard. Lost power sunday night but got it back wed at noon. I used to live in the Keys about 20 years ago and still have a lot of friends down there. Heard from almost all of them and so far all are good, just lots of damage. Like most Floridians, they will rebuild and overcome this. And be stronger for it. Cheers to all of you. E

    Thanks for all the comments guys!!! Jazzman , i havent hooked up the DCX yet , but am very exited about getting it . Guitar center had a great sale for the 4th of July . Best to all
  12. Hey all , Here's the latest CL score . M-1.0t for 50 bucks !! And it works great !!! Very clean inside . Called the guy and asked what model it was and he didnt know . Took a chance and told him I wanted it . I was very pleased to see what is was . Some slight scuffs here and there but in very good shape for its age. Will do some serious comparison listening in the coming weeks between this amp and my Emotiva's . Here's an inside shot after taking the top off

    Criagslist score

    Hey all, I curse you all for this occd that you have infected me with !!!!!! In the words of Kyle and Stan ( southpark ) You Bastards !! Just kidding Picked up a pair of AL-III Plus speakers today from Criagslist in central Florida . Ad was on there for a week or so . So I email him and arrange to go look at them today as he still has them. No one had contacted him yet !! He didnt have them hooked up so i didnt get to hear them but they are very clean . As im ready to leave , he says " Wait a minute , i forgot something " He comes out with an Onkyo M-501 amp that he forgot he had in the closet ! Throws it in as he does'nt need it anymore !!!!!!!! Free !!!And it's Spotless !!! On the way home i buy lotto tickets just incase this isnt some freak stroke of good luck Anyhow here they are , And thank you all for the Wealth of information on this site !!!!

    My garage system ( for now )

    Thanks guys , I had the Magnepans 1st , but the Acoustats are the stuff ! I Love these speakers !!!!!!!!! All together for both pair of speakers , ive spent $300 !! $100 for the maggies and $200 for the 2+2's! Craigslist is s wonderful thing ! My wife and i have never had a really good stereo system until now . Always had something to listen to, but not a quality system . All the cd's Ive collected over the years sound new to me again !!! I will be experimenting with the system once it gets in the house . Subwoofers and maybe some B&G tweeters.(neo3) This stereo bug is quite infectious ! Especially the Carver Stuff !!!! I see why there is so much occd here !! As for the power "conditioner ", it serves as a cooler also ( cools the house anyhow I have the system infront of the speakers for safety reasons , my grandson likes to get freezy pops out of the freezer in the garage, and this way it keeps him out of the wires and such.
