Right Time, Right Place, Right Price

Post by Audiophile_719 » Sat Jul 31, 2010 9:40 am

Hey all! Just wanted to share a Brilliant stroke of good luck I had yesterday. I went to an estate sale close to my home and I am certainly glad I did!! I picked up a Marsh HT-500S 3x200 amp, a set of Onix Rocket RS70 speakers and a set of Swans D3.2F speakers for the low low price of only $200 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can anybody say, "WOW, THAT'S A LOW PRICE!!" ? The gentleman was selling off his fathers belongings to help pay the mortgage and various other bills his father left behind. Said he didn't know anything about audio equipment, but he knew the receiver and pre-amp didn't work. So I skipped over those and bought the other items. Damn glad I am a Redneck and drive a truck!!!! LOL Just goes to show that really good stuff shows up in places you might neglect to look sometimes. Just wanted to share this with all of you guys here.

Excellent score! I wonder if the amp and pre were OK? Based on the sellers lack of knowledge, one might just wonder. Hmmm... :-k :-k :-k :-k You should check into that. :-k :-k :-k
