    Indiana stores are dry, just ask myself and Jeff. I hit them when I can, but anything good gets filtered before it hits the shelf and goes online. And West Lafayette is too far to drive just to hit goodwill lol

    I've picked up a few handfuls of CDs and lots of LPs, and a couple mid-fi CD players for use in non-critical systems. I've seen receivers worth picking up (but haven't). My best find was also my first-Polk Monitor 10s. Don't know if it's Craigslist, eBay, the recent recession or what, but pickings have definitely been slimmer of late.

    I rarely go and do not seem to find anything, but would love to someday.

    Up in Maine not too far from Randy, I've found most of what Mike lists above. Some really NICE "minty" CDs of all kinds for 1 or 2 bucks a pop. Lots of LPs...I always CHECK their "surface" before I buy so they're never too bad at 50 cents to $1.00--and sometimes even less.

    Picked up a nice old school Sony CDP with a headphone jack and volume control for 9 big ones (pretty nice mid-90s unit). A couple of digital FM tuners ($5-10). And an old Technics New Class A integrated 85 watts x 2 channel amp that actually sounds OK for 10 or 15 (can't remember)--I had it powering my Polk Monitor 5As for a while and was fairly pleased with it. But there has not been much lately, except for CDs (which is fine by me).

    Been going since 2007. I venture that I've found any and everything at goodwill/thrift shops including my first separates (all NAD component setup). OKC, OK here. None of them were in Moore.
