AD2000 and SR325i stolen from car last night - Page 2

post #16 of 52
Maybe the recycle bins were taken off to carry stolen loot?

But yeah, that sucks man.

Omg! The AD2000 that Alex recabled was stolen?!! Have you reported this to the police? Is there any kind of insurance you can use to either get new ones or the money their worth?

I can feel you on how mad you are man. I have had about 2k in car audeo jacked before that is not cool at all. Hope you find them soon Maybe posting the serial numbers if there are any on these cans might help others find them for you.

Just like that guy that "acquired" a pair of UE-10s way back when. People like that make me sick to my stomach.

Sorry for your loss. Hopefully karma will catch up to that guy and give him what he deserves.

Well I found out today that I wasn't alone, my car is only one of many that have been broken into over the past several days. Mini-crime wave going on in the neighborhood apparently. So the chances of recovering of my headphones are looking slim.

Thanks for the support guys, I appreciate it. I'll pass on that "headphone replacement fund," wouldn't feel comfortable with it, though thanks for the sentiment. I'll find a way to buy the AD2000 again, it's just a crushing blow to have lost them this way, especially after the XLR cable upgrade. I'm holding out hope that they're found though, can't see why the thieves would keep it with the way the headphones are, maybe I'll get lucky yet with Craigslist or something.

I think this is a rather serious problem in silicon valley, lately. They're after electronics, and specially, laptops being left in the cars. They don't care about stereos.

I've been hit earlier this year, and it was the second time. The first time in couple of years ago, they took my P&S camera, and the second time, they've taken about $1000 worth of electronics from my SUV, parked on the street overnight. I've learned my lesson. I don't leave any electronics in my car overnight anymore.

WOW! Everyone the AD2000's are the one's I recabled (I believe).

Pictures are available below.

If you see these headphones immediately contact Asr!

I hope together we can find your headphones!

Man, that sucks bigtime. My entire portable rig was stolen a few months ago, which didn't cost half of what they stole from you.

Worst thing is that they won't be able to use the AD2Ks most likely either way.

My "condolences" as well, I've had some experience with burglary as well.

My house was broken into during a summer vacation trip, and they took a 20 inch monitor from my place, plus a PS2 and ~20 games, not to mention that the whole place was ****ed up, which hurt me more than the ~€1k worth of goods that was stolen.

I'm really glad that I decided to take my W5000 with me during my trip, as I thought I might have some time to listen to it in hotel rooms during the trip.

i have never been subject to a burglary. here's to good luck (so far). but i would be devastated if i came back to my apartment one day and all my audio equipment was gone. i guess that is what home owner's insurance is for.

Man, this sucks! And boy do I know how...

My truck got robbed a couple of weeks ago. It's a brand new Dodge RAM 2500 diesel, and normally I've been leaving the spare key inside of the center console. Thankfully, this time I had both keys with me or they could have driven off with the truck and a 20' enclosed car hauler trailer that was attached to it. The scum bags wedged something into the keyhole on the driver's door handle and popped it open. I'm going to replace it with a regular door handle with no keyhole.

I took my Ariel Atom out of the trailer and gave some quick rides to some friends here in Pompano Beach, FL. The truck was unattended for less than an hour while I was in the Atom. I thought is was left in a safe place behind a shopping center where I've parked in many times before, but I guess scum bags look for what non scum bags think of as safe places. They got the following:

Macbook Pro

Canon 30D digital camera

Canon HV-20 digital camcorder (brand new, never used)

Phillip Stein watch. I bought this watch from my girlfriend the day that I met her. She works at a jewelry store in Cayman. It would obviously have a lot of sentimental value in any event but she's got 'keeper' written all over her and thus it's even more frustrating to know that it's a story that we can no longer do by the 'show and tell' method when someone asks how we met. I actually feel like part of me is missing without it on my wrist.

Garim Zumo 550 gps.

Headroom bag with my Ray Samuels Tomahawk (serial number 002), 60 gig iPod video with my name engraved on it, 4 gig iPod nano, Shure E500, Audio Technica EW9, ALO cryo dock, and lots of other cables and such.

My passport and a set of keys which were inside of the laptop bag.

I've since replaced the Macbook Pro and passport and have rekeyed all of my locks, but I'm limping along in terms of deciding what to do about everything else.

I'm thinking about getting another laptop bag to keep inside of my truck at all times and in clear view but this time putting liquid explosives in it rather than a laptop. Either that or a happy face Pez dispenser that shoots razor blade fragments at light speed. Any other ideas?

All told, I'm out at least $8k in electronics and my homeowners policy won't cover it because my home is in a different country. I need to check to see if the insurance on the truck covers it.

Oh well, I guess they needed this stuff more than I did or I wouldn't have left my fate to chance. The saddest thing is that even if they were caught our criminal justice system probably would have let them go with a mere wrist slap and wouldn't have even required that they make restitution. Scum bags like this should be shot on sight.

holy cow!!!

that is a whopping sum. hopefully your insurance will repay you for some of the losses. i never leave anything of value in my car. although i do have an extra set of keys in there. need to change that.
