    Default Best Score?

    What has been your best sale/bargain/used gear/merchandise find? Either audio or non-audio.

    Mine would have to be the Carver Amazings for $400. I also just got a nice pool table for free. Craiglist kicks ass.

    What about you?

    I got some crappy 3805 from a weird guy named "composition" or it might have been "magnum"... I can't remember. Something along those lines from this board... $600 bucks. I think he pulled the wool over my eyes personally. :D

    A sales incentive that earned me LSi 15s, 9s, 7s, C, FXs, plus a PSW650 & PSW404 for FREE. Then the same offer the following year got me 15s, 9s, 7s, C, FXs, and a PSW1000 for only $200.

    I LOVE Polk! When I was in sales they were by far the best company to deal with.

    Cmy,

    Which company were you in? Nice score to say the least.

    Micah (former Polk employee and forum afficinado) gave me a great hook-up on a pair of LSi-15's at a Polkfest a few years back. Not a mind blowing price like what you have -but the sentimental value is through the roof. Those things will never go anywhere.

    Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultras for my computer which I bought for $100. At the time they were retailing around $500. The company that put them up on eBay said that the center channel terminal was damaged and would not work but I got the setup and they were basically like brand new with absolutely no problems whatsoever.

    A pair of brand-new Celestion 3's. The price tag said "a pair" instead of "each", therefore I got them at 50% off. :D

    [QUOTE=Shizelbs]What has been your best sale/bargain/used gear/merchandise find? Either audio

    I did a large clean-up for a nice little old lady a while back, and she told me "to just get rid of all the junk" in her house, as she was moving and had no one to give it to. Well, I came across some 78 RPM (I think) records packed in a milk crate, along with a Garrard(?) 4 speed turntable. Weirdest thing, a record player with 4 speed settings. And yes, it works, although it needs a new cartridge. And the records are unbelievably thick compared to regular albums.

    or non audio.
    She also threw out a small shoebox full of baseball and football cards, mostly from the early to mid '70s. Also had a few New York Times papers from after JFK was killed :( . I felt somewhat guilty taking these things, but she insisted she was throwing the stuff out anyway, and had no concern over what I told her this "junk" would be worth if she decided to sell it (I'm guessing 2K + ?)

    Needless to say, I still have the junk, only it's being cared for a little better now!:)

    My score goes as follows: (I'll start out listing the Carver gear). 2 - M-4.0T amps, 1 - PM-120 amp, 1 - TMF-15 amp, 1 - CT-17 pre-amp/tuner, and 1 - AVR100 receiver. 1 - Arcam DV-88 DVD player, 1 - mitsubishi VCR, and A few additional miscellaneous pieces... A VERY wealthy friend of mine decided it was time to re-vamp his home theater system, and gave it all away to me!!! :D

    (I honestly offered to purchase some of this gear, but he only laughed...)
