Bill, an audiogon'er who helped me and a few other head-fi'ers get our Dared MP-5 is thinking about buying another batch of 10 and selling them off.

What's happening is that the distributor posts brand new Dared MP-5's for auction on audiogon. These are new in box, but the distributor won't sell them in anything less than batches of 10.

So Bill will bid and buy all 10, then ship them individually to you. Bill's a great guy and his handling of the last purchase and delivery to us was flawless.

Here's a closeup of mine...

Anyway, my thoughts have been totally down and up on this little unit. I found it "unlistenable" at the beginning, but right now am really enjoying it with a different source and the K 1000. I think it was a pretty good buy for $300.

Anyway, if you're interested PM me and I'll forward you Bill's email address. The sale probably won't go down for another 2 or 3 weeks. But this is a great chance to grab one.

Best,

-Jason

Oh, since people are asking, shipping in the US will be about $15 ~ 27. These will be shipped via priority mail or other 2 ~ 3 business day shipping method.

Best,

Since I dealt with Bill directly on my purchase from the last batch, and due to the fact that he's not a head-fier, I just wanted to throw in my backing that he was a very honorable and friendly guy, and easy to work with. He's concerned in making sure you get what you pay for.
