Crazy winning bids on 490t & TDR-2400

I liked my 490t when I had it, but not this $$$$ crazy!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CARVER-SD-A-490 ... 43a9bd0ef1

It almost makes the $299.99 winning bid on the Carver TDR-2400 cassette deck seem sane.

Sunfire Ultimate Receiver (thanks jjptkd!)
Sunfire Theater Grand Processor (with original remote!)
Carver TD-1770

Funny thing is, even NIB, that CD player will most likely need a new belt to really work properly. After all these years--sitting unused--the original belt is at the very least "set" with a few bumps in it, if not completely useless...
.....HT Rig • Sony STR-DG600 Receiver • Carver M-500t • Sony BDP-S1 • Sony DVP-NS3100ES • Apple Airport Express •
..............................• Martin Logan Scenarios, Logos • Realistic Minimus 7's • Velodyne F-1500b •

2 Ch. Rig • Carver C-4000t • Silver 7t's • Krell KAV-300i • Oppo DV-981HD • Benchmark DAC1-USB • MacBook Pro 17", iTunes •
......• Technics SL-1350 turntable with Sumiko headshell, leads, and Bluepoint cartridge • Martin Logan Sequels •

Yep, I do believe both will need some work.

The price on Carver is headed up, not down. That is a trend, not just one sale. Good deals are out there, but fewer. New guys who want Carver will have to pay more.
