    This weeks garage sale find... A Hafler DH-220 2 chanel amp with a dislodged power switch. Took it home pulled the cover fixed the switch (it had only popped out of its mount). Hooked it up to the Carver receiver in pre-amp mode flipped the switch and voila. A perfectly working fully functional great sounding vintage piece for.....drum roll please....$30.00. This garage sale thing is becoming an addiction.

    I once picked up a Carver M4.0T in perfect working condition and good physical condition for $50. I paid the dude $60 cuz I felt bad.

    Coat of black paint on the cover and 2 months later, sold for a nice amount on CL :)

    Garage sales are too hit and miss for me to get into. Too time consuming as well, but maybe I'll get more into it one day.

    Garage sales are definately hit or miss, but hit last weekend with a pair of old monitor 5's for 10 bucks. :)
