Hiya everyone. Hope you're all well and staying safe, sound, happy, healthy and not too stir crazy during the pandemic.

I'm looking to buy a super budget, turntable record player to help one of my kids get started on vinyl. He's down here in Southern Illinois at the moment,
but he lives in Chicago and goes to Northwestern.

Does anyone have something in a closet or collecting dust from your over collection of gear? If so... please PM me. I'd love to connect.

Best regards,

Din

Not sure what "super budget is", but how about something like this.
The reviews seem alright, granted... I'm sure there aren't many audiophiles in the reviews, but....

If Scott/Dave/BISL/other would let me drop all this stuff in their garages for pickup, that would be fine, too! :icon_twisted: :thumb:
Yip, I can be a drop off point. I work in 63011, and live in 63051.

More Free Stuff!

1970s Great American Sound (GAS) amplifier innards.

Son of Ampzilla: All circuit boards except the meter board. All power transistors. All heat sinks. Sorry, not the power transformer, diode bridge, or enclosure. This amp was working (but very weary) when I disemboweled it.

Grandson: All circuit boards. All power transistors. All heat sinks. Again, sorry, not the power transformer, diode bridge, or enclosure. This amp only worked in one channel when I dismantled it; the other channel just buzzed.

If you are attempting to refurbish one of these vintage amps and need to find spare parts, I just might have something that you can use.

Saint Charles County; Harvester area.

Krell KAV-300i, serviced and recapped. The cooling on this amp is less than ideal and one even exploded in the previous owner's care, so all the old caps got replaced. DC offset and bias adjusted. $1250.

Hey guys, I could stand to sell some gear.  It's been a rough last 2 years, right now I'm stuff rich and cash poor … all of this is being offered just to help cover my bills for life.  Since my situation is getting close to necessity, I'm offering everything near the bottom end of what I think going prices should be.  I'll try and get back here to check PM's, but best bet is to email me at ryan@vaporsound.com if you see something you want.  Any purchases would be much appreciated! 


Technics SP-15 table in a nice MDF plinth with Syntec S-220 arm, Orsonic headshell, and the pictured AudioTechnica isolation feet included.  Lots of manuals and paperwork included as well.  All controls (speed and pitch) work as they should, table spins free and quiet.  I've never put a cart on it, but should be a good sounding table for the money.  $400




Rega Planar 3 with Grace 909 arm and a Supex MC900 cartridge - this was a project table that I haven't finished.  New ceramic bearing, new belt, plastic hollow spindle platter filled with epoxy to dampen, and Grace arm rewired all the way through (no connectors) with Cardas headshell wire.  New 1877 Audio headshell connectors included too, as is the Herbies platter mat (that's apparently very tasty to kitties lol).  Needs the wires terminated on both ends, and the cart needs to be refurbed since it has unknown hours on it.  But once done, this setup has IMO possibility of punching way above it's price.  $300







Arte Forma P25.2 amp - This was a $2000 amp in 2008 or so when I got it, rated at 250wpc.  Had quite a bit of hum, and Arte Forma support was non-existent, so I took it to Mike Missel and he worked his magic.  Hum was decresed significantly, but is still noticable in a quiet room or with sensitive speakers.  But it's still a nice warm and full sounding amp with tons of power.  Another great deal for a second setup or if you have dome tweeters that don't show the hiss like my RAAL ribbons do $300



Electrocompaniet AW220 amps - I didn't take these off my shelf for the picture, they're both in excellent condition.  They run stereo at 80wpc, or push of a bottom can be used as monoblocks at 220 watts.  These were also taken to Mike Missel for a checkup, and to make sure both were biased identically for monoblock use.  Originally these were $2500 each in the early 2000's.  Electrocompaniet amps have a lightning fast, very resolving sound.  As monoblocks they can rival amps many times what I'm asking, the power as monos gives them fantastic bottom end as well.  $1500 for the pair, or $800 each.  Would prefer to sell as a pair. 



Vapor Audio Breeze - have a good contion demo set with stands.  They're in maple finish, satin black front baffles.  Stands have bamboo front/back accents.  There is one or two small dents on the rear of one speaker, nothing noticable without looking for it.  If you have a monitor with 5-6" woofers currently, whatever they are these are gonna be better.  RAAL tweeter and Wavecor woofer in time aligned Birch Ply baffle, a design that just came together perfectly resulting in a 4 part crossover.  These new would be $2295, sell locally for $1400 SOLD

http://www.vaporsound.com/speakers/breeze/

And really that's just the tip of the iceberg of what I have I could sell.  I have piles of quality cables from Antipodes, VH Audio, BPT, etc.  I have more electronics, speakers, you name it.  Have a Placette Passive pre, Clayton Audio S100 amp, a few pair of Vapor Audio speakers.  And right now I won't turn down any offer that's even close to reasonable.

Hi
If you still have some BPT cables left that you would like to sell please let me know.  I might be interested.  In particular S-10 power cables if you have that.  Also a pair of balanced silver interconnects if BPT ever made those and you have them.   Thank you.

I don't know what the politics are about promoting one's own ebay auctions, but I thought that this might be of interest to some of our local obscure vintage stereo collectors (I'll gladly allow local pickup for any GAS'er).  If there's a problem with this post, I'll gladly remove it.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/184382746774

I put my recapped set of Quintessence Preamplifier and Equalizer up on eBay as I need to try and free up some funds.  They work great, but need a lil deox and light replacements.  I don't have time to deal with them.  Just throwing these out there.

I have a Simaudio Moon Audio 350P preamp $2500 new retail (no optional phono or DAC section) collecting dust. Bought used 3 years ago for $750 and never got around to using it on a regular basis. Sound is neutral and transparent. Asking $500.

It's time to part with my Magnepan IIIA's as I have downsized to the LRS. The drivers were completely rebuilt by Magnepan. In the process I heavily modded them. I reversed the mid/bass panels so they project forward like all the Magnepan 3 series since the IIIA. I clamped the drivers to the stock mdf panel with steel angles and through-bolts to stiffen the connection.

I rebuilt the mid/hi crossovers outboard with Alpha-Core foil inductors and matched Russian mylar caps from John Hillig of Musical Concepts. All internal wiring is silver plated copper. Included is a pair of steel Mye stands for panel stiffness that are industry state of the art. Fuses are Hi-Fi Tuning Fuses.

I was running them bi-amped but they can be run full range with the stock Magnepan outboard crossovers. $1200

I am going to sell my Mark Levinson 532h.  I am original owner, smoke free and have all original items that came with the amp.  It is in excellent condition.  I thought I'd offer it local before having to deal with the internet.  Retail was $8500.00, I am asking  $3500.00.  I've had it less than 5 years.  The amp was brand new when purchased from authorized dealer.

I bought a Coda Continuum 8 which is taking it's place.
