 That fisher really is a pretty looking unit. Nice walnut case and it looks to be in pretty immaculate condition. I am sure you will be proud of it.

Thanks to all of you.  I know I'll enjoy it also.  You're right buson160man, it's looks to be in good shape & the other 500Cs that I saw online did not come with the walnut case.  The seller had a 57 transactions history on ebay with %100 positive feedback & when I communicated with him he was quite pleasant.  I made him an offer less than the asking price & he countered with a small increase which I considered pretty descent on his part considering the initial asking price & as pointed out by you guys, the appearance of the unit.  Overall, I'm happy with the purchase & anxious to get it, listen to it & share my impressions on this thread.  :beyersmile:

Wow, with all of the accolades I'm more confident than ever that I scored pretty good on this one.  Thanks very much Skylab.

Hey there, they seem to go for $100-200 online. A fair price for a large amount of iron. Also a low barrier for someone looking for a DIY project. Have fun with it.

Thanks, guys. Asking price was $100, so I'll see what I can do with it.

You're most welcome. Last autumn, I nearly bought a mint 500c from a cat just 30 minutes away. Came with original Manual, carton...everything. Based on input from moodyrn, I was prepared to pay the premium price asked.

 

And then...

:popcorn:

 

...the seller got COLD feet and removed his listing. Decided he couldn't part with it at the time. :(

I can barely type here Im so drunk but groucho babes thats one hell of a buy!! congrats bud :D

Well, I got up this morning and see a Marantz 2270 listed on CL for $150.  I am thinking this will be gone real fast - or there is something real wrong with it.  I contact the seller and get over there as fast as I can.  It is not hooked up to anything - so can't be demoed (forgot my phones in the rush), but the cosmetics were mint and it powered up fine.  I put down the $150 and took it home. Plugged in the phones and sure enough no sound :( but heard the relay click.  So I start looking around and discover the pre-out/main-in jumpers are missing.  After connecting some patch cords she is up and running!!!  After a recap if it beats the 1250 (doubtful) it stays and I sell the Pioneer, if not I sell the Marantz (maybe).  Got my work cut out for me (in a good way).  :etysmile:

The thought has crossed my mind more than once today. :wink_face:

A band I follow recently posted this on their Instagram page, and when somebody asked about the Marantz they said it was a $30 Goodwill purchase. If it's in as good shape inside as it looks outside, that's quite the steal!

 

 

EDIT: The band
