There's a couple shops that advertise drool-worthy vintage gear on the local CL all the time, but they're all stacked in the back of a room unrestored somewhere in Louisiana and I'm not going to drive that far for an unserviced unit unless it's something truly special. However, there's one guy who seems to be a personal collector and has been constantly placing ads selling silverface stuff, and it looks like he has dozens of receivers. His ads are very vague and often advertise without naming the price of any specific piece, but I know for a fact that he has a bunch of speakers and a restored 9090DB at the very least. His most detailed ad claimed that he's moving out and has 37 years worth of stuff to sell. If anyone wants the name and number of the guy, PM me.

 

Also, what in the world is an SX2500 worth?

 

Barter Town is an annual member I believe.

My reading indicates that the sx2500 was not that highly regarded.  Just sort of OK.

Yes the AK Barter Town membership fee is annual and worth every penny.

Definitely.  You can post post Want-to-Buys, Want-to-Trades, as well as stuff you may want to sell.

Is it just me, or does $700 seem really low for those? Keep in mind that I don't know anything about the speaker side of McIntosh.

Hey guys, I've just realized how good integrated amps are for driving headphones through the headphone out. I bought two speaker amps to drive an HE-6 and one of the amps drives the HD800 to a level of clarity that I remembering hearing on the Burson soloist. It also competes well with my WA2 with upgraded tubes. This is really a surprise to me. Anyways, I just wanted to express my amazement.
