Brian, I just got off the phone with your seller. We are to meet up at his office [where the system is] on Friday at 8:00AM EST. He says he needs to set up a PP account but that shouldn't be an issue, according to him.

Well, I went up and saw them today. They are in really nice condition and working order. I took some photos I will post as time permits but I will say this. Brian has made out like a bandit! =D>

Those who will be attending Carverfest will see this setup, maybe even the seller as well. The fat lady still hasn't sang but all things look to be a go. Just need to figure out some logistics and give the seller some time to find the original boxes.

Thanks Wayne,

For a change I have hit a home run, I normally strike out when it comes to purchasing used gear.

The Silver Sevens are an exception to that rule.

Thanks Tom for taking the time to check them out.

TinPan.

As you are aware I do not really need an extra amp. I just spent an hour or so packing up my set of Cherry 260's
and put them in storage what a waste ](*,) so when I get the 600x2 it will end up sitting next to the Cherry's.

Tom (T3) will get the benefit of the Amp/PreAmp until Carverfest 2012 thats when I will get to see them.

Yes I know the Sunfire Tube Pre is very good, as I already own one with Phono Stage and remote. I will end up passing this one to one of kids some day.

Perhaps I forgot to mention my other line of business. It just so happens I operate a hi fi storage company featuring climate controlled storage. We take any units being stored and frequently test them to ensure electricity properly lows through the system. Best of all, this is a free service to all pre-approved applicants. :lol:

If I remember in a PM dated 7 Dec , I did offer to send them down to you so you could try them out.

Your reply was:


I really appreciate the offer to hear your Cherry 260's, but I will decline. No sense in risking damage in shipping.

So it looks like your other line of business had not opened at that time. :lol:
