He is even using my pictures!

This is my for sale post:

and this is his at ebay:

I realize everybody wants to make a buck, but this guy has no shame. Only thing I can do is expose him for what he is.

So you know not to deal with him, he is from El Cerrito, CA. 

I have talked to Currawong about this lowlife.

 

Wow, what an ass. I had been looking at those for a while, wondering who would be suckered in. Never thought that the seller would be from here.

Agreed in all but impact, IMO.

Apologize if I missed it; what is the ballpark cost on such a mod, or was this a one-off thing?

One day when I can easily afford it I'll buy the LCD-2's again, they're great headphones as well with it's own character. Not in a hurry to though and I know 007's would still get 80% of my head time anyway. o2smile.gif

 

The modest 007/717 rig? I know it's all relative, but...wink.gif

Thats wiktor.  He is a professional flipper.

 

Gilency's guy is nkkuma.  He sells Yamahas for $2500 and headphones that he gets for free out of goodwill for thousands.  

 

They are both examples of why the summit-fi/vintage market is so perilous right now.

Help / Advice ... with F-81 electrostatic speakers,

 

well I'm looking for that person who bought I think 5 sealed original panels on ebay some time ago. I need at least on new panel!

 

Can they be rebuild?

 

Regards Georg

That disguts me, I have sell a SR007tI in mint conditions for $1000 including postage fee to him. I hope that nobody will buy at this price.

wiktor is a nice guy but I'm not sure why he hasn't been banned yet...

Never active. I remember one of the Orpheus set's he was selling few years back for around $35000. Guy may have over 10 sets of the Orpheus but his prices are nuts.

I feel you, I sold my kgss+O2 for that reason. I like a more direct, intimate sound and perhaps less airy. I actually prefer the ESP 950 to the O2mkI.

He's at it again:

$1100 for a pair of used RS-1s that should go for $450-475 IMO.

Do people actually buy this crap?
