Gumtree ad....trying to help someone out here.
« on: January 29, 2014, 09:01:53 PM »
Gents, i made an enquiry to an ad placed in Stellenbosch and spoke to a lovely lady named Nana who recently lost her husband and needs to sell some gear for radio therapy for herself.....i cant buy the gear but promised to help.I will gladly facilitate and package and take responsibility for the sale.....Please ignore the prices listed in the ad and chuck me an offer on something that interests you.....(i hope the mods do not mind and will make an exception in this case to a little rule bending?)
I will obviously test and check condition before any payments are made.Please feel free to contact Nana directly as well.....not looking to make a penny out of this.
JQ.....the ad please.....
Andre in CT on 0839811111
Nana needs 6k for therapy and i hope we can get close.....honestly hope so.

I would say:
 1k is fair for a good condition 965bx with remote
 1k for the amp if in excellent condition i reckon
 R6-650 for the tuner
 R300 for the remote?
 Really not sure about the Matrix 1 speakers R1000-1500?
 FDL,what you reckon on the Fostex?
 What the heck is the Recoton?
This is just me guessing gents....a guideline guess i reckon

This is the Fostex:

There is such a thing as a Recoton FM100. It is amplified FM antenna (indoor I think). Kinda hard to locate a picture on the interwebs, but at least I could get a description. This is the best one I could find. Might not be the actual thing, though.



Also check out this ad on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Recoton-UHF-VHF-Amplified-FM-Antenna-/321296075608?pt=US_Antennas_Dishes&hash=item4acebd0b58

Probably not worth more than a couple of hundred rand, going by what I see on ebay.

Not sure about what an F100 is, perhaps the 'M' got lost in translation.

That Fostex must have cost a bundle in its day. Quite a tasty looking little thing, but in the digital age perhaps more of a collectible than a usable piece of kit. Kinda sad, that.  :vsad:

The Fostex Multitracker X18 can do everything that the Tascam Portastudio can (could) and more. Plus it is portable. Really nice. Here is the owner's manual for those who want to know more:
